Question Think I might go back to drinking again... - July 27th 2014, 06:21 PM

I've tried so hard to battle against the need of simply drinking anything containing alcohol.

But I'm so... conflicted in my mind right now and drinking is like the only thing that calms me down and not tear everything apart.
I wouldn't say I'm a heavy drinker, it just something... that calms everything down.

I don't know what to do.

Sup Thomas! I understand that you are going through hard times and the way you cope is drinking! The way to stop this is simple but not easy, you must replace the Habit of drinking to cope, with a different, safer habit.

Here are two videos that might help! The first one is about Willpower and the second one is about Bad Habits. Both will explain things to do to help

You can do this!

Hi Thomas,

You've not put a lot of detail in your original post so I won't waffle on and jump to conclusions because I can't be completely clear on your situation.

I'd simply suggest that until you can stop the drinking behaviours, you need to identify what is driving you there and how you can resolve that problem.

You can treat symptoms until your hearts content but if you don't cure the source, it'll be a never ending battle.
