    Hey all, it’s been a few months. I was doing really well for a while. I got straight As for the first time last semester, was sober asside from smoking maybe once a week, and even had a girlfriend. She dumped my ass a few weeks ago, and I’ve been a mess. Started drinking every day. Pot makes me parinoid now, probably because im in a bad place. My…[Read more]

    • I m here if you need me bro…

      • Same to you. I got a box of whine and i wanna slap that bag down so bad rn. But DXM withdrawals sound much worse so if you can keep away so can i

    • I’ve been gone alot from here lately since I’m struggling with this massive shitshow that exploded at my work.

      But I’m normally on this site alot everyday. So hit me up anytime and if I happened to miss your messages, I ALWAYS try to get back to the sender.

      So I’ve cut my life down to performing the basic top priority functions of daily life…[Read more]

      • Thanks man Good advice. Its just hard because I’m stressed the fuck out with school and work, and she was my escape. Now I’ve replaced it with booze. Im trying to do what you’ve said but I’m pretty overwhelmed with it right now. we just had a a week and a half off basically with that polar vortex so now were playing catch up. Idk how I can keep up…[Read more]

    Hello everyone !
    I took the dry Jan challenge on (been sober for 27 days now). So far so good. It bothers me that I am close to relapse, awaiting the 1st of Feb (mission complete – let’s celebrate).

    What would you advice to keep such thoughts away? What does help you to stay sober for longer ? (examples of actions you take?)
    (unfortunately I…[Read more]

    • I find that watching or binging on a series on Netflix or another streaming service helps me quite a lot; you need attention to continue watching, it takes your mind off of things, and keeeps you from going to the store to get another drink.

    • As someone who lives on a small college campus in the midwest US, I completely understand. Drinking is what you do here. All the time. You can’t escape it. You just have to stay strong and find others that enjoy doing other things. Im trying my best right now too, but even I cant stop downing the booze. Youre already ahead of me. Be proud and stick with it

    Good morning guys! 3 years ago an ex-boyfriend died in a violent car accident because he was under the influence. Until Sunday of this week, I never really questioned why he was drinking so much. Since I started my recovery, I started to see things differently and see how things have really hurt the people I love. When I asked his sister if it was…[Read more]

    • I don’t think it’s someone’s fault that another person drinks, each person is responsible for their illness, it’s just another burden to carry with.

    Hi everyone. I’m new to the forum. I’m 25 and have suffered with alcohol abuse for almost 4 years now. I suffer with bad anxiety/panic attacks as well as depression from the things I’ve done while drunk. I didn’t just get drunk or needed a drink everyday- mine is where almost everytime i drink I blackout and cause MAJOR problems that of course I…[Read more]

    • Been there…in the end of my drinking I was blacking out most of the time and I lost my drivers licence because of my habits…I drank and did coke for about 20 years till I stopped; in the process i lost most of my friends, so I can relate…

    • Do you have any friends or family members that you are close to? Someone who could help you stay on track? It can be effective to have that angel on your shoulder when you need it. &Don’t beat yourself up badly over past mistakes. Best we can do is learn from them, adapt to better suit ourselves. Make your amends if you must, then put it all…[Read more]

    19 days of sobriety today. F**k Yes!

  • Zman posted an update in the group Group logo of ALCOHOLALCOHOL 1 month, 2 weeks ago

    Alcohol is an incredible problem here in finland. You have to be 18 to purchase 5.5%alcohol. However the law says, that grocerystores can sell only max 5.5% alcohol. And you have to look over 30 years old, or they WILL ask your id.
    At times 9-21. For stronger stuff u need to be 20,and visit the government monopoly store.

    What made me quit. Acute pancreatitis.
    I drank 100cl a day (1l) for roughly one year due to having a procedure installing two titanium disc implants at level C6/C7. The opiates took care of the pain (high doses oxytcontin) but I lost the ability to sleep. The alcohol took care of that (could get 2h out of double dose 15mg of Zopiclone). Woke up…[Read more]

    Minor relapse…one beer, two glasses of wine and a shot of baileys…I feel depressed and sick today but it will pass and I dont want to drink anymore…

  • Alchy Sid posted an update in the group Group logo of ALCOHOLALCOHOL 2 months, 1 week ago

    Around this time last year, I went to the pub, wasted as hell. Most people there were wasted too because it was really late night. Next thing I know, I’m in a fight. Then, all I remember: got swung at and knocked out; ended up with a fractured jaw. You can see the crack in the picture. That’s alcoholism in “full swing” pic mandibular fracture

    • Jesus! I’m glad you’re ok now that looks gnarly.

      • Dude, I’m not going to lie, it hurt! But it healed up really well. It definitely left a big impression upon me mentally though- that I needed to calm down with all the crazy drunkeness. For a long time I did, then recently I started slipping up again. But now I’m on back to a decent track, void of that insane recklessness. Your videos and others…[Read more]

    I’m new here just registered. I have a really bad drinking problem, I drink every day. Rarely I can manage to barely get through a day without drinking, but it’s really starting to scare me. I’m afraid I’m going to end up in jail or hurt myself, or worse, someone else if I don’t stop. I’m that guy that gets really crazy on alcohol and I have some…[Read more]

    • Hi!
      I completely relate to what you are saying. I. Go about 5 weeks wothout drinking and then abuse it until black out- do something incredibly stupid and dangerous during black outs. It makes me feel worse when i wake up so i stay sober for about a month. Then the cycle happens again..i end up wandering out too. Doing things i don’t recall to the…[Read more]

  • AuntieApee posted an update in the group Group logo of ALCOHOLALCOHOL 2 months, 3 weeks ago

    I’m an alcoholic. I picked up a meth habit in my 40s. Now I am trying to quit them both. I can stay away from meth until I get drunk and end up with a baggy of meth.

    Alcoholism runs in my family. Actually, addiction in general. My father died of stomach cancer due to alcohol. I drank in high school here and there but quit until about age 32.…[Read more]

    • That’s good motivation to do the deal 😎

    • That’s been happening to me a lot lately. Doing speed when I get drunk, even though I don’t want to take any while sober. I hate it, but it’s so hard for me to quit drinking. Just happened to me last night actually, I’m strung out feeling like shit. I decided I can’t drink anymore or I will seriously end up hurting myself or end up in jail. It’s a…[Read more]

    Hi guys, I just turned 18 this past september and I’m in my first year of college. I’ve been abusing drugs (such as pot, xanax, and cocaine) and alcohol since I’ve been 16. During high school I would take some type of substance everyday whether it be in the morning to get through the day or at night to fall asleep. Since, I’ve been to college I…[Read more]

    • I would recommend trying to not start using the drugs at these parties. For myself I know after i had 2 beers no matter what i was going to get plastered. If you accept that just one beer will mean you have 20 maybe you can stop yourself. Best of luck

  • Soberstew posted an update in the group Group logo of ALCOHOLALCOHOL 4 months, 1 week ago

    Hey everyone. I’m kinda new on here but not new to recovery.

    Booze was always my drug of choice. I was a heroin addict for several years but in retrospect, I only used heroin to curb my drinking. Insane, right? If I wasn’t strung out on heroin and someone put a gram of heroin and a 5th of whiskey and told me to choose, I would always have chosen…[Read more]

  • maponos posted an update in the group Group logo of ALCOHOLALCOHOL 5 months ago

    I am wired that way though…I prefer downers over stimulants…For me alcohol is one of the most addictive and powerful subtances in the world and its perfectly legal and socially acceptable while other subtances get demonized.

    • Same here, I hate being an alcoholic. It’s wasted so much of my time and health and has screwed up my life. The problem is, it only takes that one drink for you to feel like everything is suddenly better and you can relax. At least that’s how it is for me.. Being an alcoholic is like being handi-capped

  • wipicoco posted an update in the group Group logo of ALCOHOLALCOHOL 5 months, 1 week ago

    Hi there, I could use some input on my life and how I’m getting through it. My name’s Pierce. I’m currently a 3rd year college student, turned 21 earlier this year, and I’ve learned well how to cope with negative experiences in my life. My family has an extensive history of use and abuse of both alcohol and tobacco. My grandfather was a terrible…[Read more]

    • Hi there; I have the same problem of trying to find something replace alcohol with. Though I think the answer for inner problems are inside and not found by looking for a solution outside ourselves. My advice is to get help before it gets to be a real problem. I waited 20 years and ended up in a shit storm that was my bottom to stop…

      • Alcohol can be really though to quit; plus it s so easily available and socially acceptable in our society…I know that pain…

        • If you wait too long, alcohol withdrawals are really scary; one can even die from it.

          • You’re right, I just don’t know what to do because it’s literally in every social circle I am a part of. Even family. And I just moved in to my own place so I’ve been lonely already. I can’t just avoid it or I’ll have no one left to hang out with, which is not good for me I need to be with others or I get depressed and anxious

            • Thank you for the advice I really appreciate it. I recommend pot if you can get a hold of it but I wouldn’t just replace it. Pot can be just as life destroying if you abuse it. If I can afford it, I try my best to only use it as a reward for getting through a long day. I have friends who do it all day and night, and it really can draw you in and…[Read more]

            • I use pot and kratom for the cravings, but like you said I dont want to really replace it but its a temporary solution, until I deal with the real reasons for my cravings which are inside myself…

            • Meditation and music really help me also…

  • maponos posted an update in the group Group logo of ALCOHOLALCOHOL 5 months, 1 week ago

    1 year off alcohol!after 20 years of daily abuse.

    • How did u do it? Did u join AA? The meetings always depressed me. Had a few yesterday and so ready to be done. Had been sober almost 4 months

      • No, i m hard headed, I weaned off slowly down to 1 or 2 beers a day, and then I switched to 0,5% beer and i still drink my six-pack every day to stay sane. Obviously I dont get drunk anymore. After about a year of that I dont want alcohol as much as I used to…Its like i ve become allergically sensitive to alcohol…AA meetings depress me to so I…[Read more]

    I have been polyaddictalcholic for 20 years. I ve managed to ween off the ethanol for the better part of a year. I am now drinking a 6pack of 0.5 beers (grocery store beer) a day and feel like I just cant knock off the final habit..At least I am never drunk…[Read more]

    Thanks CG kid for the support

  • nikomon posted an update in the group Group logo of ALCOHOLALCOHOL 7 months, 1 week ago

    this Alcohol ruined my life and im only 21 i always wish i could go back in time and never drank it. i was a good person then i never thought i would be like this. ive been abusing drinking to the point iv been mixing it with other drugs that are easy to get without a prescription. i hope i still have hope. i’m still young .

    • There’s always hope bro, I actually had a counselor tell me when I was a year sober (and she never does this) that she thought I’d never make it. Then again, I went into outpatient on a 7 day meth binge and didn’t realize I wasn’t wearing clothes and forgot where I was and why I was there – my first interaction with a treatment facility :p.

    • I was in your shoes a year ago. I’m 22 now and I can tell you there is always hope. I remember thinking that I could never put down the bottle, I relapsed probably about 30 times. I’m sober now, but I am far from perfect. Hang on to your life, dont ever give up. If you need someone to talk to I’ll be here for you.

      • thanks man. but it seems like the pain is so strong that drinking is the only thing that helps. ive tried to get off it but i get awful days or remember things that hurt me a lot, and it makes me wanna drink.

        • I understand, I used alchohol to ease the pain too. I have memories that bother me to this day. But the most important part of recovery is finding healthy ways to deal with these emotions. We cannot run away from our past. We have to learn to accept it. If we try to escape, we will be running forever. I’m sorry if this sounds cliche but it’s the truth.
