When you realise that the emptiness is the most useful part of a cup.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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 (:
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
God bless you,
God bless you, Jess.
You are all such comfort ❤️
Im so sorry Jess! My heart goes out to you! Big hugs!
Thank you all pandas ❤️
Way to go!
Thank you (:
Who would you say it to out loud in order to 1. Feel safe and 2. Help it feel real?
Saying it here is a good first step. I hope you find someone who will help you!
There isn't anyone I feel like I can say it to without feeling utter shame and embarrassment
Thank you Jeff, I want to sort it by myself but I'm struggling
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?
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!
Thank you so much for the supportive words, doing everything I can now to get it under control and break the habit
