Welcome you meet us well.....

My Dear Rekha, you are welcome into our midst, for days now we have been talking about issues like the one you have raised here, we think it, discus sit and sleep it looking for solutions while rubbing minds........That is why a new group is created now....

Join us, unburden your mind, there are always options and alternative routes and solution but you are in the midst of it all, you know what to do, it is in you, there is no one who is alone in this world, the inner spirit and internal conviction always directing us....The heat may be high but we all are here with listening ears........You are one of us and when the rope is at peace the bird will be at ease too....There is one thing I am sure of, there is no day we do not think about women who are in one predicament or the other.........we talk about it and this shows that you are in our mind too.....The solution has brought you here.

Be yourself sister, stand up and urge your inner self to reawaken....it is in you...you can save yourself from battering...work on yourself sister, through learning and unlearning whatever is keeping you in bondage...you can still enjoy your life, thank God there is life for you and life to the full brink.

Determine to be free, start today, get a hold on yourself, move with people who can liberate and support you, you have a choice, even if we all come to stay in your room, the decision will still be yours, immediately you conceive it it will start o materialize, because if you can think of it you can be it, I know that, in pulsewire, you can always come for retreat, do not surrender now, you have a whole life ahead of you.
You are not handicap, move on, nothing is stopping you, you do not need anyone to strap you to her back....This is a platform where you can raise your voice.
Start now, it is only a child that raises her hands that her mother will lift up....Raise your hands and voice and move form stagnation......We all are ehar to serve as shoulders for each and everyone, no situation is too worse as long as you are breathing...once again my very dear sister....begin to work on yourself now......

I understand

Rekha
I am a former alcoholic myself. I am male, in my late 40s, married to a great woman, and a father of two wonderful daughters.

I gave up alcohol in 1995, and have never touched it again. My daughters were very young then, but their innocent faces gave me the courage and the will to give up alcohol. I had to seek external help to get me over my addiction, but once I did, I have never gone back, though lots of people told me that I'd remain a "dry" alcoholic, and would go back to drinking soon. I haven't, and I am a better human being, a great father (I hope my daughters agree) and a decent husband.

I can help.

Sunil
