HEY! Supermen your cape is showing!
I am sorry to do this, but it has been building up in me for awhile. I think it needs to be said and needs to be remembered by all that are here. This is a reply I wrote to someone else's blog. It is NOT ment to be mean, harsh, or nasty. I think sometimes our egos think we have good intensions. Personally what I wrote could have been placed on a 100 blogs here, but I guess I needed to unload. For that I apologize to all concerned.
Again, I deeply love and respect all of you, but I needed to say this now. Maybe if anything, just for myself.
With that disclaimer, I give you my retort.
Don't forget my friend if you think a relapse can't happen to you. You better think again, before you get all Holy-er than thou. I had almost 11 years of sobriety and I RELASPED. I never thought it would happen to me and I had some 24 hours under me. So don't be making statements that one day you may have to retract. Then imagine how you'll feel when some one writes their bold declarations of know-it-all-ness.
I have a ton of respect for you and for all of you. But remember what you put out here in sober cyberspace could come back and bite you on the butt. I pray no one ever as to go through what I went through just to regain sobriety.
Live well my friends, but don't start beating your chests yet. The only way to gaurentee you will stay sober forever is when your buried.
