This is something that just drives me up the wall!Why is it that when you are a practicing drinker and you tell people (family especially)that you admit that you are an alcoholic and are trying to stop...Why is it that the phone calls stop.......When I never admited that I had a problem and just drank my days away.The phone calls were still there.I dont get it.Im trying to better myself,,and yet.I dont get any calls from my family,telling me anything.. I am mainly talking about my mom,stepdad,sister and brother....Why?.Is it because they know I will fail?Why?This really breaks my heart at times.I love them with all my heart and I feel so reclusive with all of them...My record of staying sober was 4 months back in 2006 and they knew this,yet I would still here nothing. I knowticed that while I was trying to stay sober back then.I would invite them to hang out with me at the beach or what not and I heard nothing.Nothing!Alcoholisim runs rampid in my family. My dad was a drunk.(hes been sober for a year or so.My step dad is also an alkey.My brother drinks but doesnt think he has a problem.Maybe its better not to admit it to loved ones because it has put me in a reclusive place with them.I was the one that always called first.I was the one that always remembered birthdays.I guess I just got tired of being the first to call and I am hearing nothing.The thing that drives me so crazy is I was a happy drunk.I never got into trouble and I stayed at home.I have my own family and its great,but I miss them something awful.Is anyone out there going threw the same thing that I am?
