Dying of ALS...sure as hell aint the same as slowly killing yourself with a damn bottle. At least he has a choice as to where I do not. Don't even try to compare the two. I'm dying, that's for damn sure, my say in it is mute....the OP's destiny at this point is entirely in his hands. And help aint at the bottom of a bottle.a reply to: kaylaluv

Detox sucks, but a hospital is a great place to start.

Find a sober house. Stick to a routine. Do what they tell you to do. Typically as long as you stay sober and look for work, they will let you stay up to 6 months. Avoid your old routines, friends and thinking that helped you arrive in the hospital.

Your heart, mind and body will severely ache at first, but it will get better. AA meetings...Go...again...and again...just effen go...even when they feel boring, tedious or anything else. Boring is good for you, take tiny but ever bigger bites of life as you redefine how you react to challenges. That voice that tells you eff-it, you don't need to go to meetings? That's your demon talking...and eff that guy, he put you in the hospital and he will do that again and worse if you give him the chance.

That little boy full of magic and hope still lives inside you and he has a unique light he needs to share with the world. He has earned that opportunity. Get started building a rock solid foundation he can stand atop of....Do whatever it takes..And never, never give up. Your best days are ahead of you and say yes to all the help you can get. No one...No one...beats alcoholism alone...that's actually the rub, alcholics think they don't need any help and they can do everything on their own...that is a pillar of the disease that keeps it alive...screw that nonsense.

Fight for yourself and do everything and anything it takes. Sobriety can be a super-power, a peaceful, crystal clear vision of the world and other people.

It is NOT about the stumbles, it is NOT about how many times you fall down...Life is all about getting back up, stronger each time you rise.

Consider LUNASIN?...It's a supplement.

Simplified Study Aims To Quickly Test A Long-Shot ALS Treatment

ALSUntangled No. 26: Lunasin
www.tandfonline.com...

The Mystery of ALS Patients Who See Improvement


At the suggestion of a friend, he started taking a supplement called lunasin—a protein found in soy and grains that is claimed to have a range of potential health benefits. After three months, Mr. McDuff and his wife noticed improvements. Today, Mr. McDuff can swallow again and has gained weight. His arms are still weak, but he can walk short distances. He is the first to say he isn’t cured. But now, “I have a better quality of life,” he says.

I'm very sorry to hear this. I'll Hustle A Little Kindness in your direction.🤗

I'm rooting for ya Tech, it takes what it takes! I just scraped together 2-years and actually feel happy


"Just don't drink today" helped me out a lot. When I think too far ahead (about anything), that's when I feel doomed.

This moment is good enough and I can stay in my real skin for it.

Heal up, we need ya

Been there after my heart couldn't make it anymore without alcohol. Now 8 years sober, happy and not even that boring. Good luck!

I don't think we have ever talked or exchanged ideas and I'm not going to go into any speech. I've been where you are including (if only for a day) homeless. I hit rock bottom on my third attempt and ended up alone and walking fifty miles home to a wife who wanted me to leave.

Reality struck because up until that moment...I wished I was dead. Then when there was no one around...no one who could care anymore...I all of a sudden wanted to live. That was my turning point. Yours is likely different but I believe it is there. Somewhere.

Good luck with what you are doing right now and as others have said...figure out what you are going to do next. Find something, anything that is important to you or more important than you...and become the best expert at it.

That is the best advice I can give.

Sorry...I was reading back in the thread and realized I forgot the obvious. Liquor is a wonderful servant but a horrible master. Nothing that controls you is EVER a positive thing...but you know that. Fix it!

NO, wisdom is knowing how to tell someone to go to hell and having them respect and listen to you, and even come back for more.. because of that ability. That's not "sugar coating", it's knowing HOW to speak to and appeal to others so they trust you and moreover RESPECT you and your words. But if all you can do is insult people and push them away, then why do it? What does it get you, do for you...boost ego? I think we do a good enough job of beating our own selves up without help from the outside world...most especially from a flippin stranger. It might make the speaker feel good about themselves to belittle or beat someone who's already down, but it also shows how empty and lacking in compassion and empathy that person is. It's kind of like respect...you can DEMAND respect for yourself all day long, but if it's not given freely to one who DESERVES respect, it's nothing but a waste of words, empty words and lies at that, and breath. I learned that a long time ago with my step father, who was an SOB military officer...he once told me, "you WILL show me respect by saying "sir"! That was as a twelve year old girl, after being beaten with a belt that left blood welts on my legs. I NEVER, EVER said the word "sir".
