I cope with my grief on a daily basis by the way it affects me on that given day.
 On good days I tend to be productive in the house. Creative things to keep the mind busy. Not so good or bad days I seclude myself...spending time on the computer working with pictures, again creativity to occupy the mind.

I also found that being in and with nature helps me a lot to cope and get a grip and fresh outlook on life in general. I rarely use alcohol, being afraid of the affects it could produce, unless it's a glass of wine with a meal.

I escape by working very hard during the day and coming home and having a drink or two or three, then take my sleeping pill, put my sleep apnea machine on and sleep.  I also kid myself that Jason is just away.  I am delusional at times...I eat way to much because the more I eat the more the hole closes for a little while.  I use to be a size 10.. now more than an l8. I want to lose weight but not badly enough to do something about it.  My husband loves me unconditionally so who cares about my weight, except me who finds it hard to love myself being so much overweight.  I use to smoke... will never go back so I think my vices and not too bad... I enjoy the alcohol feeling and I don't drive so I am safe. I applaud all of the responses and hope that if any of you want to change your habits, you will.
Peace to all of us.

My ways of escape change from time to time. Alcohol about once a month , and then I regret it the next day because it is a depressant. I smoke, did before and still do, hope to quit one day. I got into walking and it made me feel good but the weather got cold and I quit, the stairstepper just isnt the same to me. I gained a lot of weight in the second year, so food is an escape for me too. I sometimes do creative things like make slideshows with music/ i've had a lot of Tay's pictures made into large posters and framed them so they are all over the walls. My new escape now is a book and dvd I'm trying to follow along with on positive thinking, some days it works others I'm too down and out to care. Oh, also i'm trying meditating everyday and it's a good relaxant.
