    i dunno. i'm not an alcoholic but i would think if you worked so hard on your sobriety, it would be hard to live with someone who is not supportive. that is pretty sad.

    Totally!


    I wonder if this is why alcoholics are always in “recovery” rather than being “cured” due to always being an alcoholic and the first step (of wanting a drink) never goes away?
    I guess this is what addiction is?
    Unless one sorts out the reason that one is an addict in the first place, it will always be there?

    As a recovering alcoholic ( almost eight years) I don’t crave it anymore but I know if I start I won’t be able to stop. I might be able to control it for a while but it will overtake me eventually.

    Yeah, I "quit" smoking 6 years ago (after over 30 years). I always say I've stopped as I won't know that I've actually quit until I die. The craving is there every single day. If I were to have one, I'd smoke a carton of 'em.

    Hugs, Fly. Fighting the good fight is hard, but knowing your boundaries is key.

    I think I find this worrying as I try to get a grip on my food issues, that it will never go away.

    Yep, it's been 4 1/2 years for me and I know that if I were to have one, I'd go right back. Many of my friends still smoke so I'm constantly around it and for the most part I have no cravings but every now and again, I really want one.

    If there's a thing that can be addictive, I'm usually on patrol, fighting it, or wondering if I should try it. I've found success (incomplete, mind you) with distraction. Hugs, Novice, the struggle is real.

    When I quit, I did fine until I would get upset about something....then the cravings came like a tidal wave. When my sister died and then I went through a break up with a toxic guy, I low key started back up again but was able to recognize it was grief/stress triggered.

    Hmm, sounds like damage control to me. It would be great if Demi said something else to set him off, but maybe that's too much to hope for.

    "I'm an alcoholic. I don't have one drink. [pauses] I don't understand people who have one drink. I don't understand people who leave half a glass of wine on the table. I don't understand people who say they've had enough. How can you have enough of feeling like this? How can you not want to feel like this longer? [pauses, sighs] My brain works differently." - Leo McGarry, The West Wing

    I have no idea if this is how it works but John Spencer, who played Leo and an alcoholic himself, said it's very accurate to how he felt about it.

    Demi Moore's Daughters Recall Their Mom's Scary Relapse on Red Table Talk: 'A Monster Came'

    Demi Moore and her daughters with ex-husband Bruce Willis will have a vulnerable conversation on Jada Pinkett Smith's Red Table Talk

    Demi Moore and her three daughters are sitting down at the red table for an in-depth discussion with Jada Pinkett Smith.

    Moore, 56, and her daughters with ex-husband Bruce Willis — Rumer, 31, Scout, 28, and Tallulah, 25 — appear on Monday’s episode of Red Table Talk on Facebook Watch, and PEOPLE has an exclusive first look at their difficult conversation.

    In the clip, Pinkett Smith — who cohosts along with daughter Willow, 18, and mom Adrienne Banfield-Jones, 66 — asks Tallulah what she felt scared about when Moore had a relapse. The actress writes about her sobriety slip in her new book, Inside Out.

    “It’s like the sun went down and like, a monster came,” Tallulah says of when her mom would drink. “I remember there’s just the anxiety that would come up in my body when I could sense that her eyes were shutting a little bit more, the way she was speaking. Or she would be a lot more affectionate with me if she wasn’t sober.”

    “It was just jarring,” Rumer adds.

    “It was very weird, and there were moments where it would get angry,” Tallulah continues. “I recall being very upset and kind of treating her like a child and speaking to her like a child. It was not the mom that we had grown up with.”

    The episode will also focus on the difficulties of their traumatic mother-daughter relationship, Moore’s life-threatening addiction and why their family didn’t speak for three years.

    Moore admits in her memoir Inside Out that she struggled mentally and physically in the years following her breakup with ex-husband Ashton Kutcher, which negatively impacted her relationship with her daughters.

    “She was really struggling mentally and didn’t take care of herself,” a source told PEOPLE when the book was released. “She didn’t have the best relationship with her daughters either and her life was just chaos.”

    “Now, she has a beautiful relationship with all of her daughters,” added the source. “Demi feels bad about the years when she wasn’t healthy. She really tries to make up for it now. Her daughters are amazing. Demi is involved in their every day lives. And they are very supportive of Demi. They love that she wrote a memoir.”

    Her daughter Scout previously told The New York Times she’s proud of her mother for “doing the internal work that she didn’t have the time to do, for a long time, because she was just in survival mode.”
