      I used to be on the alcohol forum.  Well, I guess I still belong there.  Just don't post as much.  Since I have a dual diagnosis of anxiety and alcoholism I thought I'd try the anxiety forum.   Seems people are more compassionate here.  NOt that they don't care on the alcohol forum - it's just people with anxiety really care a lot!!!  Sometimes too much.  I've started seeing a Christian counselor and we're dealing with the root of my anxiety.  Starting from childhood and moving up to where I am now at 46.  I know I need to quit drinking to end some of the anxiety.  That is my goal this week.  Please say a prayer.  

      I have never experieneced what you did.  But, my anxiety goes back to a crappy childhood with guns being pulled and a lot of drinking and me being with my WONDERFUL grandparents a lot.  I had a lot of bad relationships.  Made a lot of bad choices.  I have an addictive personality I suppose.  

      Hoping to get to the root of the cause and move forward.  

      Thank you for sharing your story!  It helps a lot of people and gives us hope.  God Bless you!!!

      Sadly, many people regard alcoholism as self-inflicted, which is totally untrue because addiction is an "illness" and should be regarded as such. I think this impacts upon levels of understanding and sympathy/help the alcoholic receives.

      I hope you find a way forward and out of this honeysmile Keep faith in yourself. You can do this.

      That's why I love the anxiety site!!!  You guys are so positive!  

      Thank you for the words of encouragement.  

      My husband and I picked Wednesday as his last day of smoking and my last day of drinking.  I know my anxiety will get better without alcohol.

      Keeping faith and going to continue coming back to this site!  

      smile

      Yes, lol.  I asked him when he plans to quit smoking.  He said when I quit drinking.  The fact that HE needs to quit because of surgery encourages me even more to stop drinking.  I want him to heal properly.   

      I will check in after counseling on Thursday and let everyone know how we made out and what our plans are to stay sane during his recovery and while we're both cutting out long time addictions.

      Many hugs back & blessings to you!

      I quit in 2002 for 11 years. So upset I messed up my sobriety. I only had 4 drinks earlier and I'm all anxious. I know I won't sleep all night and I've given up fighting for sleep. Praying I have the strength to quit and release some of this anxiety. Thanks for the prayers. I could use them.
