I've finally come to the the conclusion that I require treatment for my drinking. What's more is that I sucked up the courage to tell my boss and a few close friends and family members, as well as my counsellor, that this is what I plan to do. I was astonished by the outpouring of support for me as a result of my disclosure. It was very hard for me to do, given that up until now I've gone it alone in my struggles for most of my life. Anyways to make a long story short my employer is willing to give me all the time off I need. His words were "as long as it takes", and I can claim disability benefits while I do so. Anyways now that I've told people there's no backing out now. I suppose that was my strategy. JS

Love is better than anger. Hope is better than fear. Optimism is better than despair. So let us be loving, hopeful and optimistic. And we’ll change the world.

Congratulations. I wish you well. Do you have a plan of action?

As Mark Twain once quipped, history may not repeat itself, but it does rhyme.

That sounds like a really positive step forward.
