Drinking again. - February 13th 2010, 09:42 AM

This thread has been labeled as triggering, particularly on the subject of substance use, by the original poster or by a Moderator. The contents of this thread might therefore not be suitable for certain sensitive users. Please take this into consideration before continuing to read.

I hadnt touched a drop of alcohol for 8 months, I use to be an alcoholic, and one drink was never wnough, Over the past three nights Ive been drinking again, to coma point. Its dangerous, but I cant help it. I feel I need to do this. You dont know how bad about myself I feel because Im letting this habit take comtrol again

I dont feel like I can stop drinking, Ive had about 15 vodka shots tonight, and a beer or two and again, Im going to drink to coma point because I cant stop. I can go through almost a 1L of vodka a night if I drink heavy, and thats what Im starting to do again. Please help me stop. I dont want to do this, but I feel like I need to.

Im not going to smoke though... I hope, 18 or 19 days without a cigarette and 45 days without a joint. Yay for me.

Hey there Sonic.

I'm glad that you have reached out for help. Alcohol is definitely addicting. I use to drink heavily every night too. However, I don't know if you realize that alcohol does a lot of damage to your insides. You can continue to drink, but you are just damaging your liver. I had gotten to the point where my liver was so damaged that I couldn't even have a sip of booze without feeling sick. I also ended up missing 3 weeks of school and work, because every day I was feeling sick, even without drinking anything.

I would highly recommend getting help by your doctor or a professional with this, but if you do feel like drinking, maybe drink something else instead, like water, or juice.

PM me if you need anything

Hi Sonic.

Don't beat yourself up. Most people relapse, we're only human.
You did incredibly well to go 8 months without a drink. But try to get yourself back into a positive mind. The alcohol does not control you, as much as it may feel like it does. Your first step is to stop saying, I cannot get out of this and start saying I WILL get back out of this.

You did it before and there is absolutely nothing to stop you from doing it again.

Has something happened recently which has made you resort to alcohol once again? A lot of people relapse when they find themselves in difficult situations, the only way we know how to deal with it is turning to substance abuse.

If something has happened recently, open up. There are plenty of people here who would be more than willing to talk to you at any time of day. :]
