This is my first entry... I am desperately trying to save my marriage. My husband is a very kind and caring man when he is sober. We have been married 7 years, 5 good years and 2 miserable ones. He had gastric by-pass surgery 2 years ago and since then he has lost 130 lbs. but has gained a terrible addiction to alcohol. It turns him into a very nasty person that I do not see when he is sober. He sometimes had a drink in the evenings, usually when he felt stressful, but he was never drunk...only a few times did I see him when he was drunk during some type of celebration with friends and family. He now cannot drink a beer or 2 and he is drunk to the point that his speech is slurred and his eyes are glassy, his face is red and, on occassion, he has black-outs if he drinks liquor. He is losing all his friends and family and soon he will lose me if he can't get this under control. I have researched alot to find help and advice from others who have had this surgery and have experienced this addiction with alcohol and found a way to conquer it, or at least get a handle on it. We are checking into rehab programs. Please, if there is anyone out there that is experiencing this, I (we) need any help you can give us!

My goal was to live to retire and I guess having to take early retirement because of health reasons wasn't exactly the way I had planned things. I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
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...
