    I know what you mean but you shouldn't feel guilty, it's not easy and probably never will be easy and there's going to be good and bad days but you just have to remember you're trying and that's what's important. Don't give up!

    Hi I’m very new to this site as I’ve after 2 years finally given in to the fact that I have a problem with alcohol it started about 2 years ago when I split up with my girlfriend after 2 years I’m 43 now and In the beginning it started with a quarter bottle of vodka a night for about 4 months it carried on however after that it became a full bottle a night and that’s how it’s been up till now . As time has gone on I’m becoming increasingly feeling unwell I am starting to get tummy ake most mornings yesterday I woke up to the fact that I may die if I carry on leaving behind 2 children .after readIng many threads on here I’m encouraged that I’m not alone I also realise I think boredom is a big part of the problem at night I have nothing to do yes I’m in a hole at the minute but I just want to encourage you that I am also at the beginning of the journey and I want to beat it I’m going to taper the amount as of from today instead of a full bottle it will be a quarter bottle and I’ve set my goal not to start tonight till 9pm it’s usually been 3 pm but I want to change we all can change you just have to want to to I wish you luck and I know I can beat this and so can you good luck and I will post an update let you know how my journey goes good luck my friend you can do it ! And so can I 🙂
