    Hello everyone and Happy New Year.
    This year I need to make the change…looking over my journals for the past 6 years or so shows a broken record of needing to deal with my alcohol usage.
    But when I think about stopping – even for 30 days – the freak-out and fear is so intense it sends me straight to the bottle. Late last year I did do a 10-day stint by following the book/program.
    Right now the thing that is haunting me is a bottle of whiskey in our cupboard – silly, I know – but it was gifted from a dear friend and I don’t know how to get rid of it without my husband noticing…I’m uncomfortable just asking him to get rid of it because of how much I’ve disappointed him in the past with my efforts to stop – plus he doesn’t know (or pretends not to know) how much I’ve been drinking recently or that it’s a problem. I’ve been doing one or two day jaunts into sobriety and then the whiskey gets me…I’ve replaced the bottle a number of times already…to hide that I’ve been drinking it. Truly, I feel stuck and depressed. The weather is turning grey, and I’m not looking forward to this year the way I hoped I would…
