    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]

    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

    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]

    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

      • If you need to talk you can msg me…I was a drunk\polyaddict for 20 years…

    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 2 months, 3 weeks 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]

    • I think there’s Hope for everyone that wants to be sober bad enough to accept the uncomfortable change that comes with it.

    Thanks CG kid for the support

    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.

    My Life has been consumed for the last 22 Years by this Elixir, I have always assumed when I was younger that I would die alone. I was so scared of losing that I never gained, including Love and companionship. I gave my life to this drug and feel nothing but loneliness and loss because of it.

    • I still suffer because of this loss, but seemed locked into the same pattern of behaviour. I fear this will not end well for my family, but at least I will have some release at last

    To follow up my story I posted in the forum section, I feel like I don’t even want to drink that much anymore now that I smoke weed everyday. I feel like weed just make me relaxed, it makes me laugh and have fun alone and I sleep well. The next day I don’t feel like shit and I feel completely refreshed and I feel way more functional at work than…[Read more]

    • Aye that’s awesome!

    • max replied 8 months ago

      Yea man it’s pretty cool! I drank everyday for the past 5/6 years, and drank a 12 pack everyday in the last year. Now I had that 12 pack next to my computer desk the whole week and I just look at it with disgust. I only think about the hangover I’ll get the next day and the bad taste of Pabst, I just cringe and I prefer to smoke weed once or…[Read more]

      • Knowing you are reading this 2 months, I have hoped you have fared well, I learnt young how to recover from a hangover too early. 42 now and want to spread the msg if I can
