I'm totally honest with my children.
Then they are already winners.
So these terrible black moods I get... i then mask to unconsiousness with drink, and i cant go on like this any more. I want it to stop, but I'm scared that all my life will be filled with my fight against the drink, that all anyone can see is 'alcoholic' tattoo'd accross my forhead, and thats all my children can see.
I cannot promise that your life won't have some battling with the drink. I drank a few times since leaving JW's.
Don't drink today, or at least don't drink anymore today if you already did. Don't think about an entire life
fighting an urge. Fight it now. We will deal with tomorrow after today, we will deal with next week after this week.
Trying to go back to the false religion to normalize your life will cause you anguish and possibly drinking.
Trying to justify not being totally honest to your kids when you teach them the religion will definitely cause you
a battle in your heart and maybe in your liver.
Get help. Seek out those that are able to help here, and elsewhere. Find the local A.A. and see what kind of
different meetings and times they have for help.
Power to you.
