Okay tomeye11 I will tell you what to do....First victory was saying you have a drinking problem. I started drinking when I was 13 with ole skool winos. I drank to get drunk..I felt sorry for myself because I did not have a mother and father raising me. After having blackouts (you know the deal) and being told things that I did..I soon had to look at who I was becoming. You may not like who you are becoming right now, but the great thing is you have all the strength to bounce back like a real champion...I did. Next thing you have to do is STOP SELF PUNISHING YOURSELF FOR SETBACKS. We as men have a hard time bouncing back from a lot. So begin your process by taking time to think back on all the little successes you have had in your life. All things that you did that made you feel good about yourself. I don't care if it was just paying a bill on time...Grab that victory and paint on the canvas an image of yourself that will get better stroke at a time. This is not about others and what they are saying ..Please they said a lot about me and guess what. As I move forward and became a better person to myself, those that were talking ended up strung out and doing bad...Wow how the tables turn when you BELIEVE IN YOURSELF. Start there and make every stroke on the canvas of your new life look the way you want it to with the colors that make you happy. Trust me you can do it if I can....I know you can
