I've felt sad/low/in tears for probably the past few New Years. Never a strong reason why, just a feeling of incomplete

No matter how many more glasses of wine I have, shots, cigarettes, food, it constantly feels like something inside is missing and I can't relax and I don't know why, every day

Is there a way to recover from being an alcoholic without having to cut it out completely? I want to be able to enjoy the occasional drink like a normal person

I've heard that truly, it isn't. The goal may be sobriety first, then look into options second. It's all about the Why. WHY change in the first place. Focus there and whether you need an occasional drink will be clear.

So this is the only place I can be honest without too much judgement. I tried cocaine for the first time in my life and I feel happy. I got closer with a friend and I came home and cleaned the house.

I wanted to say the whole house but characters restricted me. I know it's not a permanent solution but for the first time I feel happy and alive. Due to the cost I will only do it every 2 weeks. But I can feel something again

I know I will be judged but for me this is a stepping stone because it's moved me away from wanted to end my life.

01 Dec 2018

I can feel something, motivation, empowerment, happiness. I will probably feel *** tomorrow but right now for the first time in so long I'm feeling something.

01 Dec 2018

as long as it isn't your sole coping mechanism. some people don't get addicted, but can be like a band aid over much deeper wounds. maybe reach out to free mental health crisis center/talk line? good luck x

I took cocaine once. Expensive! I felt like it made into a more arrogant and more ignorant version of myself, so just continued with others things, off it all now though and life's better.

Do what you will. Have your fun and it will teach you the lessons you may well need to learn. Just say no to crack, heroin, or spice if you get offered them. Better things are out there.

01 Dec 2018

Yeah very expensive, I expect I won't be doing it again for a while and I'm fine with that. I'd definitely stay away from all of that other stuff! Thank you for your advice and understanding (:

01 Dec 2018

And thank you CJ, I don't feel any intentions to do it again for a while I'm fine with once in a blue moon! I'm trying to sort my mental state out atm too with the docs, I do want to look after myself. Thank you xxx

im equally depressed you help me

I think you are both in the right place. Keeping track of your moods can help you spot patterns that might help you to stop certain bad feelings before they feel like they are taking over your life. Things get better.

Thank you x

Nobody seems to take a hint, or rather a subtle cry for help or recognition

Every day is a challenge that drags until it's finally night time and I can get in bed and shut off. I don't want to go to work anymore. I don't want to socialise. I don't want to leave the house.

I don't want to admit I have a serious drinking problem

Who would you say it to out loud in order to 1. Feel safe and 2. Help it feel real?

24 Oct 2018

Saying it here is a good first step. I hope you find someone who will help you!

24 Oct 2018

There isn't anyone I feel like I can say it to without feeling utter shame and embarrassment

29 Oct 2018

Thank you Jeff, I want to sort it by myself but I'm struggling

29 Oct 2018

Maybe see what kinds of resources are online, like tips for cutting back. Ways to distract yourself or keep busy those times you normally want a drink or other outlets that are healthier? Or even anonymous support online?

30 Oct 2018

Try not to be ashamed. It's not a failing to have a problem! We all have many, many problems. The fact that you want to get better is a success in itself!

30 Oct 2018

Thank you so much for the supportive words, doing everything I can now to get it under control and break the habit
