I need help I drink every night and think that it has something to do with my personal life and the way I deal with things. I used to love my job and the banter, now they are making me feel down and worthless. My husband has been doing this for a while now and I really need some help to stop other people making me feel so useless and worthless.
Before I can help you please give me a clinical explanation of yourself lol. I feel ya. I have a problem drinking as well I can not seem to get through a day without at least two or three beers. A couple weeks ago I let it go and fought it. I have to say I felt alive and great but of course the demon came crawling back in. It is not just the drinking it is the reality that can be hard to deal with. Drinking kind of washes everything away but then again you are never really dealing with your problems. That makes drinking the problem. How many times have you been drunk and had an in depth conversation about your life, job, relationships etc. You always have these great ideas and goals on how you are going to change things but when you wake up you feel the dread all over again. Everything you talked about when you were drunk is washed away. When we get drunk we open up. The ideas, goals, bitterness, courage, come out. That is you and me. I believe that the problem is we are using Mr. jack or who ever to help us get those things out. That is not the way to go. I think it is great that you came on this forum and admitted that you have a problem. You are already making a step. I also know that you may have many other issues like myself that have not been dealt with. You need to search and figure out how important your life is to you. Before you and I seek help I think we just need to focus on kicking the booze. There is help for that. I am starting tomorrow all over again and I believe I can do it. It is going to be hard but if there is some kind of peace awaiting me from this whacked life then I am all for it and I am going to fight. Alcohol is our mess. We can stop. Peace will come. Good luck to you my friend.
Are you trying to decide if you should stop drinking alcohol? Maybe you’ve already tried a few times to just cut down, and drink more sensibly like other people seem to.
Perhaps you’ve had limited success, you manage it for a week or so, but then you start drinking more again, then the blackouts and awful hangovers start, the guilt and the arguments with your partner. Do you finally decide its time to quit? It might be worth a try.
hii, its not that tough, you should stop drinking, because it effects your body as wells your personal life, I too had a problem, Even I tried, and i will. People always making you down and worthless but even you have to ignore them, always think they are worthless, because they have no other work. and don't be addicted so much.
You can take steps today to stop drinking. Your first step might be to see your doctor, contact a support group, or set a date in the near future to stop. While some people can stop drinking on their own, others need medical help to manage the physical process of withdrawal.
If you think you have an addiction to alcohol, talk to your doctor about whether you need to withdraw from alcohol under medical supervision. Your doctor can give you medicine that will help you safely withdraw from alcohol. Other medicines might be prescribed later to help you stay sober. With a doctor's help, withdrawal from alcohol is safer.
