Hi to all, my name is Alice, I am new to the group and I am still trying to be sober on and off for 2 years...I started with self medicating for depression and anxiety disorder...I am thankful that I didn't drink in my teens nor much of my 20's...I was to into my schooling and being the perfect student.

My father was a very ill alcholic who died at age 57 from esophagal variesees, which means, he bleed to death over 3 days in the hospital from the erosion to his esophagus from drinking...he was a wonderful man when he was not drunk...gosh, maybe many of us are the same...I didn't think I'd ever be the same...and yes, I never drank in High School or college...I hated the smell of wiskey, I was determined NOT to be my father...but oh well, i am more like him now than I ever thought I would be...at age 53...well more to come to I wanted to say hi to all, that I feel your pain, your struggles, your heartache, etc...been there, done that...now I want to feel good again, healthy again, in love with life again...alice
