Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.

I may have an alcohol beverage once or twice a year now.

It's better for to stop also drinking if you don't want somebody calls you an alcoholic.

I never drank frequently but I used alcohol for the entirely wrong reasons, to drown my sorrows and block out reality, it made me very depressed also.
I am on a lonely road and I am travelling,
Looking for something what can it be.

restrict the use of these programs.

I'm just writing this to help myself as much as anything.I don't want to bring people down,but here goes.I started drinking again.When I posted a song called "Sacrifice,Let There be Peace",that was about resisting alcohol.The truth is that there is so much emotional pain and anguish in my life that sometimes the only thing that will help release the pressure is alcohol.I have also flirted with heroin before,but not doing that for a while and luckily haven't got hooked on it.But heroin is just so lovely when you are suffering mentally and emotionally.It's a good job I've been sensible with it and have moved away from friends who I would do it with.Alcohol though is so readily available.I'm not a chronic alcoholic,I don't really get "Drunk" as such very often because I have a strong constitution,I just drink to the point where I feel warm and alive.Any drinkers out there will know what I'm talking about.But I have been drinking everyday,and way above the recommend daily units.Drinking is also expensive.I will try not to have one today.I know none of you should really care and everyone has problems.I just wanted to be honest and express myself on this subject.
Sorry to read this, but understand if you quit again right now, it will be easier, because you aren't as far down the rabbit hole as you were the first time.

I'm feeling exited about it, just have to get through tomorrow and then I can pat myself on the back.
Then my next milestone will be one month.
That will really be something to celebrate!
Will just have to watch for the dialogue that goes, oh I have been so good not drinking all this time so I will have a drink to celebrate.
I got sick of feeling like shit the day after drinking, and I couldn't usually control how much I drank, so I drank a lot most of the time, which is not good for the health or the figure.
And I didn't really enjoy drinking that much anyway, a lot of it was to self medicate or through boredom.
Looking forward to having money saved now instead of being broke by the next payday, and being able to buy some nice things instead of blowing all my money on alcohol.
The last few drinking years have been pretty much wasted years.
They say it takes 53 days to form a new habit, but I find already I'm getting out of the habit of heading down to the bottleshop if I'm anxious or bored or can think of nothing better to do.
It got so my legs would walk me down there without any conscious thinking about should I go there or not.
Alcohol is indeed a bad drug.
It's been helpful reading other peoples experiences thought.

Hi all, I just want to say a big thankyou for this post, finding it has been very helpful. I've been a 'bad' drinker since I can remember ie not very good at it. I drink every day which is fine but my problem is like yours was, SheWhoListensToTheWind, ie if I am in a situation where this a lot of free booze going like a family party or something, I have no off switch. I keep telling myself I'll cut down and just have a bottle of wine on a Friday and a Saturday but I never seem to get around to it. You guys have given me the motivation so from next Monday there will be no drinking on work nights.
Anyhow, just wanted to get this off my chest and I hope you are all well and doing fine .
