ok… so i have had problems with alcohol lately… it all started two three years ago when i had a traumatic experience… someone chased me and my dad and almost killed us… since then i was very nervous all the time… my hands where shaking when i woke up and before going to sleep… the only time i ever felt in peace was when i drank… i would drink as much as i cpuld because i knew it would make me feel ok… it fucked up my life… now i do not have the fear i felt before…. but every time i drink i end up badly.. some of my friends told me today that i was very fucked up and “how is it possible that you are drinking how you drink….” i have had tried stop drinking but it is impossible.. eevery weekend there is something to drink for… all of my friends drink but never end up as bad as me… now today has been terrible..
should i join a drinking group??? i really diont want to stop drinking but it is really getting me into problems… do you think i can take control of myslef without looking for help?? any answers will be much appreciated..
First of all, you know about this experience and how it made you drink so much. Second, you are not fucked up, don’t take those words from your friend at all. How is even a real friend of yours saying this?
This may sound like the hardest shit to do, but work on your relationships right now, the people that you care most about. Don’t stop drinking, mind with whom and why you’re drinking, then you will know if you need to stop.
Keep sharing this. If you are feeling the negative effects, you must fight for not staying alone in this.
Yes, you can take control of yourself.
@beyond, @boribori90, Thanks for your replies… I think I will try to solve this out myself… I have tried before and failed. Hopefully it will be different this time. If I do not succeed maybe ill join AA or something. I think talking with my psychologist about this will make things better.. Ill let you know how things go.. and thanks again ;)
