you eager beaver you.:) I just love your spirit and how you are embracing life. yep, we have another thing in common....I've never been an alcohol drinker, but was in a relationship with a binge drinker for 8 years. I got involved in Al-Anon and couldn't believe all the things I learned, especially what I was doing wrong by being an enabler. well, he ended up marrying another alcoholic, and I should probably think my lucky stars. I also like to write poetry and wrote one about Al-Anon. I'll try to post it on here.
