Good luck Sarah, it must have taken a lot to admit you were going into detox. Now you have taken steps to admit you have a problem, things will get easier for you. I wish you all the luck in the world, we will be here for you when you get back.

what does 'going into detox' mean? and how does that stop someone posting on an internet message board?

I'm not trying to be funny, I'm quite serious, I don't understand

OBL , what measn is that wehn a person goes to a detox place , it is a place where they get help to get off things like drugs , alcohal or cigarettes or stuff like that , sort of like a Drs. setting where there is lots of help available . In most cases , a person may not be allowed access to things like the internet or ecven phones calls / visits for teh first little while to allow them to be able to better adjust to the setting whrre they will be . however , youmust rememebr that this is NOT , NOT , NOT a jail thingie and a person going to such a place most often will do so voluntarirly beause they had the courage and strenght to realize that there was a problem that they needed to address but also needed the support of of other in the ame possition to help them defeat thier fears or demons .

I totaly admire sarah fro having the courage to be able to find the strenght to make this desisison and buy teling us here that this was happening , this tels me that she has enough confidance and trust in all of us to be willing to share this very private thing . She actually will now have TWO places to turn to for help ... us here as well her new freinds at the enter and together , WE ALL can help her and help eachother as well i think .

Sarah , you WILL be waaaaaay hugely missed whiel away but we know that once you do come back , and you will be back , you will be sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo much stronger gurl .

Hi Sarah,

We will be here waiting and wishing you will be back in a zippy.

I admire your courage and determination. My son-in-law was always blaming everyone for everything that went wrong in his life. When he drunk he could be so abusive... The drinking sent away all the people who loved him. Now, in France all by himself, he finally realized he had to look for some kind of help. Unhappily it is a little too late to save his marriage..I still love him as a son and I hope he will turn around and at the end be a winner. The same I wish you Sarah

Love and Hugs

Sarah--

You are taking a very courageous step and I wish you the best of luck. I was married for 20 years and my husband was never able to take that step. He died this past May of liver failure at the age of 46, leaving behind three children. Alcoholism takes a nasty toll on everyone close to it.

Take care and make sure and holler when you need.

Hi Sarah,

It is so easy to get caught up in slogans while sorting things out. But the one slogan that matters is "One day at a time." And I can attest that sometimes it might be "One hour at a time."

Alcohol is tough, as it is legal and it seems that "everyone else" can drink and not have problems. I admire your strength and willingness to live without being a slave to the bottle.

Hearing yourself laugh without being blasted is the sweetest music of all, isn't it?

You will soon regain feeling good from the inside out. You have much joy to spread and many who want to give joy to you. I wish you well in your new journey.

Maryl

Hi Sarah, I hope you are coping OK today.

We had two members of our family suffer with alcoholism, and fortunately, both came out the other side. They both were hospitalised and both nearly died, but with family support and the great help of AA both survived. One became a counsellor for AA and devoted his life to it, sadly he has now passed away, but was able to live a full life up until then.

I know how you must be suffereing and your family too, I just hope you have the strength to get through this, for you and your families sake.

My thoughts are with you this week. Please be strong.
