    Hello Darryl,

    Please try to stop and think.  Coping is very hard.  Life is a cruel business.  We all feel as if we are on "the sinking ship", most of the time.  That is why many of us seek solace in alcohol.  

    Tell a bit more about your circumstances, if you can.

    I will help you with any advice and encouragement, that I can think of.

    Keep Hope Alive !

      Hey Darryl,

      I am just a friend that you do not know very well, yet.

      I am having a hard time of it, trying to reduce my ridiculous drinking level.

      I am taking Selincro/Nalmefene to help reduce. 

      I have made a mess of things... I am a sad, lonely, fallen angel.....

      but I am not dead, yet.

      You just hang on in there, too.  We are human beings... angels would cope so much better !

      I hope that I helped...a bit.

      Alonangel 🎇

    Nah if you were on the brink you wouldn't be sitting sending emails.  The only person you can rely on and trust in life is yourself.  You say you need help?  You don't need help from anyone, No one can help you but you and the sooner you start to love and believe in yourself the sooner you realise the only person you need is you and you already have all the answers within, you just need to reach inside and find them.  And when you find it then you will be kind to yourself and treat yourself with the love and respect you know you truly deserve.

      I've been on here a few times feeling like I was going off the edge. I understand when you say we can only help ourselves but some of us rely on other people for support. Like being on here, inpatient therapy, outpatient therapy, group sessions, AA, etc....Even reading books on alcoholism and journaling can help. I suppose I should take my own advice on some of these but I do start outpatient therapy on Monday. I personally try to do a bit of both....help myself and lean on others for support. Also, sometimes we need others to help show there is good in us before we believe it ourselves. Just my experience.

    Hi Darryl, you are clearly in a dark place and feeling a lot of pain. I would urge you to see you doctor and explain what you've put here. I pray that you find light at the end of the tunnel.

      I am married to a vetran also.  He was in Desert Storm which caused a lot of physical, mental and emotional problems.  We knew one another since high school but only started talking again in 2011.  His drug of choice was NOT alcohol although he did drink.  He was able to get off the other stuff but all of the problems were still there.  Do you have a VA in your area?  I know the one my husband goes to is nothing to brag about.  It took several changing of counselors until he found someone he was comfortable with.  I know the VA offers inpatient programs too.  I must say that he also has his own insurance through work and uses that see a medical doctor outside the VA.  There are certain medications that help him that the VA will not prescribe but they do help him.  He has my support and it don't go much further.  I'm curious as to your thoughts about going to VA for help.  But, I totally understand you.  I seen it with my husband.  The problems are still there.  Do not be one of those "22" ...... Please go get some help.  If you have a supporting wife let her help you.  My husband lost everything until he met me.  Lean on people and let them help you.  Like I said you can use the VA and a private medical doctor.  (that is if you have access to them).  I don't know your sitiuation there.  Please check back in and let me know how you are.

      Darryl, you can get rid of the alcohol without going cold turkey, and once you have that under control it will likely be easier to address the other issues. About how much per day are you drinking now?

      HI Darryl. The past is catching up with you for certain and I wist that I could give you a fast and easy solution but I cannot. For certain I do understand how drinking numbs the pain and don't we all!!?? You have many reasons to drink but it does not help you and only makes things worse...what can I say that has not bee said?? Seek help from others and this discussion can be a great help and I saw Kelly who has given a brilliant  reply since her partner is exactly like you....best of luck...Robin

      PTSD. It's not nice. Get some help and medication from your doctor. Don't lose hope. You will feel better. I live with PTSD every day and I wasn't in Iraq or Afghanistan. I was raped. You need a diagnosis, counselling and your doctor to give you medication. I really hope you get help and feel better soon. Youve represented your country and deserve to be happy! God bless x
