Pain can be emotional and it could be so deep that only someone who has been through it can see it in one's eyes. I know a lot of people on this board need assistance. We are all in need at this time, and many of the need is not through our own fault. The government can only do so much. We need to feel empowered and try to do what we can in our own ways to create the waves that will help the nation transform. I was so ashamed when I started asking for help, but when you need the help, you need to ask, otherwise no one will know you need it. The first step could be as simple as posting a photo of yourself.
If there was no struggle, then there will be no life?

Your right. this is what me to organize a non-for-profit foundation. please visit my blog site to learn more about or website (in progress).
Help Give US Hope is based on the foundation of our new President, Obama. He tells us to HOPE, and with comes CHANGE. But, I will not sit down and watch the world go round, without jumping in to Help Give US Hope.
We can not wait, and see what someone will do. We need to look for help, and ask.
I Hope, my organization will have funds by mid April, so that all in need can log on www.HelpGiveUSHope.org and requst help. In the mean time, we are looking for donations; government grants, business sponsorships and donars; and individuals or families with enough to help others.
I just read some of your posts and I had to only imagine what it's like to battle addiction. I've met a lot of people and I understand.
This is what I suggest. Put this AidPage as your home page. Anytime, you want to get a drink, donate the amount of money you would have spent on a drink. That donation will go toward helping someone who will use that money for groceries, gas, childcare and health care or something else.
Also, you are not only trying to break the addiction for yourself. It is also for your teenager. When you start paying attention to your daughter, you will find that it is not too late to be a better role model.
I think you are a good person. Be that good person to your daughter. She will benefit from it. Make this next moment your new moment and a step toward a newer and better you.
Gary25, I felt so overwhelmed today. Coming back to this site helps because I see other people suffering. When I concentrate on helping someone else, I am also helping myself.
I think if we can't see or figure a way out, no one else can. And if someone tries to help, we are helping that person help us by trying to help ourselves first. Keep on trying.
There is one thing I've learned is you won't get the help you need if you don't try to help yourself.It is very humbleing to start a new life free and clear of pain, abuse ,health problems but asking for help is something I couldn't do unless I was trying myself. thank you again for an uplifting post
