I have no clue why I'm doing this. - December 29th 2014, 07:09 PM

I'm an alcoholic. I've been a year clean, or well I was. Last night I bought a six pack of beer and decided to have a drink. I'm not sure why I did it, or what brought on the feeling of me wanting to drink. I'm not sure if I want to drink anymore, or if I do. I'm just afraid that because of this last second decision I'm going to majorly relapse again, and I truly don't want that. It took so long for me to become clean and healthy. I had a weak moment, and I know everyone does. I'm just feeling kinda down.

Hey Eric,

It's an achievement that you went a year clean and I hope you are proud of yourself. Relapse is a part of recovery and one weak moment does not define you. Everyone has weak moments, but what actually counts is how you deal with it. The fact that you made this thread shows you are a strong person, who understands what's happened and does not want to get back to old ways again. That in itself is very commendable.

Fighting any kind of urges is not easy. The best way to deal with it is to distract yourself immediately. Doing something that you enjoy doing, immediately puts you in a better mood and helps fight urges. Taking a walk, expressing yourself through art, spending time with loved ones are great alternatives for clearing your head. They have worked for me in the past, so I hope they work for you too.

I want you to know that you are strong to have admitted your addiction and come a year clean. Don't let this one slip up get to you. Just go back one year and see what made you quit then, maybe the same reasons will help you now. We have faith in you Eric and we know you can get through this. Stay strong.
