I am a heavy binge drinker. I tapered off my drinking and have gone thru withdrawal. I can usually stay sober for a few months at a time. My problem is that after I stop drinking I have trouble sleeping, concentrating, getting motivated, etc. It takes a lot of energy to get out of bed and get things done. I lay in bed and think -man I could get s**t done if I just get a drink-. I do not like going to AA. I have my family as a support system. I have always been an introvert so don't have many friends and don't really care for any more. How do I get over the hump? I have done it before, It usually takes me about a month after I stop drinking. However, once I feel better, I get it in my head that I can control my drinking, when I know I can't. I fall back into the same cycle. Can you provide any advice or other resources?
