"I AM A ALCOHOLIC! I HAVE BEEN DRINKING SINCE THE AGE OF 12. I COME FROM ALONG LINE OF ADDICTS AND MENTAL HEALTH ISSUES IN MY FAMILY! I HAVE HAD FOUR DESATURIOUS MARRIAGES AND 5 CHILDREN 4 GIRLS AND 1 BOY! I HAVENT BEEN THEIR FOR THEM LIKE I HAVE SHOULD' VE BEEN! I HAVE ALWAYS LIVED BY A CODE AND THAT CODE I BELIEVE WAS TAUGHT TO ME BY MY PA!

HE DIED WHEN I WAS 17 AND WAS A ACHOLIC! I LOST EVERYTHING THAT DAY HE DIED, I STARTED DRINKING DAILY AND GOING TO JAIL AND MANY REHABS MY PA FOUND OUT I WAS A ALCOHOLIC WHEN I WENT TO TREATMENT IN;1994 AND WROTE ME A LETTER TELLING ME WHAT A GREAT PERSON I WAS AND HOW I COULD CONQUER THIS! I FOUND OUT THAT LATER HE QUIT DRINKING THE DAY HE FOUND OUT I HAD DRINKING PROBLEMS AND NEVER DRANK AGAIN TIL THE DAY HE PASSED! I SPILLED OUT OF CONTROL FOR THE NEXT 25 YRS OF SHOOTING DOPE DRINKING SNORTING COCAINE DROPPING ACID TO NOT FEEL THE SHAME I FELT I HAD BECOME TO MY CLOSE ONES!

I TRIED TO GET SOBER BUT COULDNT GET PAST THE ABUSE PHYSICALLY, MENTALLY, EMOTIONALLY, AND THE SEXUAL ABUSE I HAD BEEN A VICTIM OF EARLY EARLY IN MY CHILDHOOD!
