In the mean time I've been to a residential detox program twice and after each two week stay there I
went for a couple of weeks without drinking any beer or anything else. I've been flat out rejected from a couple of rehab places because they said that my 1 to 2 cans of 24oz. of beer per day is not what they consider to be a "drinking problem". At the detox place they said I don't need a rehab program- what I need is a good lawyer to get my probation/court order modified.
But I'm not here to piss and moan about the problems with rehabs nor to proclaim my sobriety and
superior state of wellness and sound health. I actually want to do some PR in support of rehabs because I'm here to tell ya that if you go to rehab and cannot find your higher power and cannot bring yourself to surrendor and admit that you are powerless and your life is unmanagable due to drinking or drugs, cheer up for there may be something else there that you can relate to and connect with!!
