"Australia has one of the highest incidence rates of alcohol dependence with 18% of Australians experiencing excessive or problematic drinking at some stage of their lives, and 4% developing a dependence on alcohol."
I'm in one in ten
and now I'm one in four
I guess on the plus side I have been able to keep my sense of humour about all this.
On the other news front which I'm a bit angsty about is that I start the first of the out-patient programs tomorrow. Of course it's on three days a week and the only I can make it is the day it's on when the girls are in care. So I'll have to talk to them tomorrow to see if I can do it one day a week or if I need to be there for all three. I do know when I start the addictions program it's a completely different kettle of fish.
So anyway I guess I just wanted to update everyone that I am in fact starting phase two tomorrow. Which also means dealing with (EEK!!!!) public transport! If I see my psychiatrist I'll quite happily pay for parking (it's only 30 to 45 minutes) but as these sessions run a couple of hours - I'm not racing out every hour to move my car and pay another $3 something to the council.
