Re: The Road to Abstinence

Dab

Alcohol is a depressant.
So you feel depressed and drink to elevate your mood...which lasts for a short time. Then the next day you feel even more depressed and also...ashamed, disappointed, disgusted.etc

I'm new to this site and I've just spent a couple of hours skimming through other people's experiences and challenges. I have a big night tonight and had planned on giving up the alcohol at the end of the weekend.......Then I read one recommendation that I view "Rain in my heart" on You Tube. A Brit...

Re: The Road to Abstinence

Thanks again.

Yes I am well aware of what my triggers are....boredom, stress and depression.
Plus I haven't been working for some time so I have too much time on my hands alone.

I understand what you mean about just having one or two drinks....that just wets my appetite and then I can't stop.

Re: The Road to Abstinence

Thanks Kingsnoopy.

I keep telling myself that the first step is recognising that I have a problem.....but in honesty, I've known deep down for a long time.

Your post sounds reassuring and very optimistic. November 10 is not a long time!!!
I've really yet to get started!

Thanks again.

NEW TO FORUM. It's taken many years of denial and excuses, but finally I realise that I have a drinking problem. Looking back, most of my problems and bad relationships have stemmed from me getting pissed and offending people. For months now I have been telling myself that I am not going to drink an...
