      I seem to enjoy the warm feeling drink makes me feel but each and everytime I have a drink I just can't seem to stop sad

      I need to start focussing on the things that make me happy and try not to have that one more drink x

      That's the craving controlling UR brain.. When u cannot stop at one drink that is the deffinition of alcohol dependenency.

      Perhaps it time to see UR doc and come up with a plan to find sobriety. 

      There r meds that can help with the constant cravings nagging at u.Ask UR doc and join a support group.. I know it's a lot to do. It u can find it in UR heart to want to let go of alcohol and live life sober u will let go of the reasons why u need to drink in the first place. Weather it be social anxiety or self medicate for any reason. Find a better way to accept who u r and who u can be without alcohol. biggrin

      Dear Joshua,   Please, please do not give up, you are worth as much as any other human being...... I know that everything must seen hopeless at the moment and that there is no light at the end of the tunnel, but please believe me there truly is.   I was in a hopeless situation, severe damage to my organs, overdosed four times , and sectioned four times, that saved my life (also for my husband and four children)   it took the pressure off every day and the large amount of medication made the withdrawal easier, I still had the shakes for a week but I had painkillers and antidepressants, also sleeping tablets and tranquilizers.  Can you ask your doctor if you could have help as an in-patient, also many people find campral very helpful. There is hope, I never ever thought that I would stop, now I have not been drunk for ten years. I am very open about my alcoholism, in ways it has made me a better person. You for instance would be perfect to help others in the same situation , you could talk to them openly and above all Understanding them.

      Keep your head up high and be kind to yourself.

      Sincere wishes.  DEIRDRE xx
