I remember coming into aa over 11years ago and i hated the word alcholic and I know today I had no idea what an alcholic was and that it was an illness. When I was drinking I was told many, many times you can stop if you want to but I couldnt and I honestly did not know what was wrong with me I blamed god I thought he had punished me for things that had happened to me in my life earlier. My vision of an alcholic was the dirty old tramp with the bottle of wine with the paper bag round it and I think that is the vision of many, many people. I think there should be more education to everyone about alcholism and that it is an illness and it affects everyone from the king to the poor homeless people and it is in my words an allergy that we have to alchol. A lot of my workmates know I am a recovering alcholic but a lot do not if anyone asks I tell but it makes me so angry when they say oh he is only an alkie, look at state of him wouldnt you think he could stop drinking I try to put these people right but I think where alcholics are concerned people are very narrow minded as they truly know nothing about alcholism as I did not know when i came in. GOD BLESS YOU ALL MY FRIENDS ROSE

I'm trying to exercise daily. I was doing fairly well until I sprained my ankle 2 weeks ago but now I'm getting back on the horse. Today I walked over a mile with my arm weights that are about 22lbs total. I was out of shape and it was hard on my arms. I also did my 30 situps. I'm also going to drink a lot of water and try to eat healthy. I do tend to have a sweet tooth but I'm cutting...
