I was not going to reply but what the hell......
I want to regain what I once had.
My self-esteem and the love AND respect of my wife. (both my,now adult, kids love and respect me at the present) :-)
This I will accomplish by remaining alcohol free and being responsible.
I know, on the surface, this sounds pathetic and things in general are good for me and my loved ones
But, I know I'm capable of more and for my own happiness I need to "get it together".
I do not want to be one of those middle aged men that sit around and reminisce over "how great things used to be" that's just plain sad.
Thank you spartacus for posting this thread. It got me to thinking and reflecting and I apprieciate that!
