Re: New bad habits

Hi Eran Yes! I struggled with disordered eating since my teens. The alcohol shut down a lot of that noise in my head, and consuming 1500 a night in booze didnt bother me too much :shock: When I sobered up, the anorexia ramped back up as something I could control ( food ), and my cigarette smoking do...

Re: New to this but need advice!!

The guilt is still eating me up over them nights over Christmas and I need to clear my head! Is there anything in the meanwhile I can do to stop this feeling Im afraid the only thing that helped me to relieve the guilt playing and replaying over in my head was time...sober time. I began thinking le...

Re: I dont want to get up in the morning.

I wish I could hide from everyone, not see another person. Because I can't have a normal conversation, I can't laugh at jokes, I'm not interested in some funny video or news story, and I can't be a good wife or mom- all I can do is sit here paralyzed. I have no idea what to do or how to feel. It's ...

Re: Checking In.

I am sorry e bear. Please do not drink. It will solve nothing. Use the program and the steps to carry you through. We could all of ended up like Mark. Be the example. Show your family that this thing works. My prayers to you and your family.

Re: Totally new

My mom was a drunk. I begged, pleaded and did everything I could to get her to stop. I swore I would not be like her. I loved her and she was loved me, but she was sick. I turned out just like her. I went to AA, and learned how to stop and understood why she could not. You are not a hypocrite. AA ha...

Re: Higher power

Hi Jordanmarie, Please dont quit quitting. Coming back here and tell on yourself is big. Many do not have the courage to do that, and never make it back. For me, I had to want to be sober more than I wanted to be drunk, and was willing to do whatever it took to stay away from that first drink. Call ...

Re: Fear, I have no Higher Power

Im sorry that you are struggling highcost. Medical stuff is scary and the waiting is the worst. BUT, it hasn't happened yet. I had a medical thing (life threatening, not cancer). I had to try to stay in that day, and just act as if everything was going to be ok, then deal with the outcome when it ca...

Re: Step 12 - Keep it Simple

Thank you Wiganman. You helped this alcoholic today. I identified with everything in your post, and it prompted me to revisit my progress. Sometimes I forget how much I have grown and reading that was a good reminder =biggrin
