As you read every word of her story, you will be moved by the reality of life and death.
“To live a life half dead, a living death”
She remembered Milton’s quote.
She isolated herself in the bedroom.
She would wash down the pills with alcohol. She raised the bottle.
Tears flowed, “I hate my ….”
The phone rang.
Hearing the tone in her voice, her friend said, “What’s wrong?”
“I’ll be right over!”
Her promiscuity began when she loss control of her drinking. Life became an illusion.
Her sex and alcohol addictions plunged her into a state of apathy and then anxiety and depression.
She remembered the times when she laughed, cried, danced, sang, rested, traveled, enjoyed favorite hobbies, talked and walked with friends. Now, she isolated herself from everything.
The thought of death haunted her.
The doorbell ranged and heard footsteps running up the stairs.
They talked for hours.
“Honey, you may want to go to SAA meetings along with AA.”
Going online, they found the phone number of her friend’s therapist.
“Call her. Tell her I referred you.”
She took the first step and made the call.

This made me cry. So many people get beyond the stage where they can reach out for a hand to hold.
Thank you, Jane. My wife held out her hand, and I grabbed hold with both of mine. She saved my life. Thank you for your comment.
Thank the Lord for your wife
Her love has saved your precious life.
I’ve just started a poetry course, and am throwing myself into it! Jane
I am grateful for the great woman my life. We are so different, but I think that is the reason that I was led to her! I am also appreciating poetry. Keep me posted on how the poetry course goes. Thanks,
I’m really excited about the course. I never called myself a poet, because I viewed poets as princes among men, and I would not have had the confidence to sign up if it hadn’t been for the generous feedback I have recieved. People now tell me that I AM a poet! so I want to learn my craft. It’s really exciting.
I envy you. My wife wants nothing to do with my problem. She has told me it’s my issue to deal with. There are times I want to end everything just to escape the bondage
My wife does not understand why I have a problem. She does not want to hear why. But she see that I have been sober (good) the last 15 months. Thanks soulfracture. Dale
This is a tough issue. Society permeates with addiction and immediate gratification. For most, it is a daily struggle with one or more addictions. In order to keep the rodents in my head at bay, I pray, read, write, and try to stay in the moment. Eckart Tolle’s book, Now, is an excellent read.
This is a tricky problem that is real tough to accept and deal with. My wife is not the most supportive person either because of her own insecurities.
Thank you, Brent.
