thanks for your concern though, friend.

probably too late now to tell you this but I agree that you ought to dump any and all alcohol in your possession. no more cooking with it either.

I'm really glad to hear this, Legs. I had some friends during and after college who got married and had a son; he acted like he was still in college, drinking and smoking weed a lot, while she was moving on from that and was, of course, doing most of the child care while working full-time. She finally told me she was fed up and was thinking of getting a divorce. I suggested that she leave with her son and stay with family for a while, to knock it into his head how serious she was, but it was too late - she just didn't want to be married to him anymore, so they got divorced.

The fact that your wife wanted to separate but is willing to work with you on this is a very good sign Best of luck to both of you.

Enough to know that I am still a rank beginner, but a talented one. And my falling techniques, well let's just say that i have survived stepping off a two story building twice in the same day, being struck from behind by a car, while sitting on a motorcycle, flying off of a 60 foot cliff (again on a motorcycle), my feet slipping out from under me on ice, forcing me into a perfect back-fall, and too many other falls and tumbles to list.

Try to throw me with osoto gari, and a quick hand to the small of your back will negate that effort, I will quickly follow up with a choke/submission hold, or as you are spinning to regain your stance, execute horiah goshi. Been there, done that.

You would be absolutely amazed at how well horiah goshi works on a drunken person, another reason to stay sober, yes?

Oh, and just for the record, horiah goshi, hona goshi, epon sianagi, and maroti sianogi are much more fun to watch, and execute, and are much more punishing to the victim. And then there are the grappling and pinning techiques, the arm-bars, wrist-locks, and other fun submission holds. I especially favor the corotid chokes from the front, using the opponant's lapels or collar. It takes a mere twenty to thirty seconds to make an opponant unconscious with that. Quick tap-outs are virtually garunteed.

Glad to hear that things are on the improve for you Legs, esp with your holiday season nigh. As I said earlier, your posts show that you are improving. Sometimes just having an outlet is enough to help you through dark times. As you are aware, it is important not to bottle. Just brace yourself for a bit of a dip. It will happen and can really hit you hard if you aren't expecting it.
Be happy.
