I relate and feel your pain, Marky. Your post sounds almost like I could've written it. I don't have any words of wisdom for you as I am just as lost and desperate here scrounging through forums and Google for something enlightening, but I wanted to write just to say that you are not alone and even for just this one second someone really cares about what is going on with you. I really hope you can find the will to change.
I realize that I need to change who I am, how I think, what I say, what I DRINK, in order to start feeling better. I just wish I could make that happen.
Best of luck to you. xxhugsxx
