|You write such deep, sincere poetry that can|
cleanse one of their misery and I hope that your
writings do just that for you. You have great
talent and I enjoyed reading your poetry again..

|Tell your son that he needs to get himself an account and explore his on writing abilities. He sure did a good job on this.|

|James, you should and probably do consider yourself a very lucky man to have someone worrry about you like this. It has been many years since I drank. So long that I sometimes forget that I ever did. I quit before any of my kids came along; I hope that you quit too. I know from experience that it is not always easy. I know to that it is easier for some than for others. Put forth every effort that you can reach down and pull up; do your very best. It is easy to see that your son loves you and needs you to be there for him as well as for yourself. If I can help in anyway IM me and I will give you my email address.|

|There was a time when I could not stop my own drinking! |
This has touched me deeply. I never thought I was hurting anyone other than myself. I hurt myself SO bad! My own self-centeredness almost killed me! I would be DEAD if I kept drinking 12-28-94 was my last drink.
All I had to do was CHANGE My Whole Life!
My Prayers are with you and yours!

You have a son that loves you enough to reach out, and you have a family here that loves you enough to want to help. You know I am always here for you and your family...Please contact me and let me know what is going on, and know that I am always going to be here.|
email me at email@example.com and I'll send numbers where I can be reached.
I love you, my brother...You've always been there for me...now it's my turn. Please allow me that.
Hugs and prayers...

You are not alone but your poems show a deep understanding and strength that sometimes means we forget you might need someone too, you have always been inspiration to myself, remember you have friends.

|Your dad is a very special friend/brother to me...I live too far away to be any physical good but I will certainly be here for him, you, AND your mother...contact me and I'll give you numbers and ways to reach me...|

|Nobody can help unless he wants to be helped. I know the feelings well of living with a alcoholic. If he won't get help for himself you can still get help for you. Look in the phonebook under Al-anon. Good Luck. Very good write.|
