Do you remember what you did last night? And the night before, and the night before that?
If you have mornings where you forget what you did the night before, it is time to take a serious look at your drinking habits.
Alcohol Addiction could mean that you drink every day, or that you drink to excess every week, or that you feel you can’t cope without alcohol. You don’t have to be permanently drunk to be addicted.
Consider the effects that your drinking has at the moment. If you can honestly say that you hardly ever get drunk, you never do something you regret the next day, and you can cope without alcohol, then relax – you are out of the danger zone. But if your answer to any of these questions is yes, then you could be on a bad slope.
Alcohol addiction creeps up on people without warning. They believe that they have all the control, and feel, “It could never happen to me!” But, one day, they wake up realizing that they are out of control. The alcohol has taken over.
They think it’s too late. They spiral into lack of self-respect, hurting their body, then their mind and spirit, and finally their loved ones.
But the good thing is that it’s never too late. You can find stories of people who have had the most harrowing of experiences, going right into the gutter (often literally), yet eventually, they did find out how to stop drinking alcohol and now they are completely free of that prison.
How did these people do that? Well, each one has his own story. However, there are proven ways that help you tremendously. Because, you can’t do this by yourself. If you have an alcohol addiction, you will need help. One thing to remember is that there are a number of organizations to deal with such problems, official government organizations.
I’m 43 years old and I’m not exaggerating when I say I’ve probably drank more than alot of alcoholics their whole lives.
My mom was a bartender my whole life growing up, I hated alcohol, still drank it with friends. When I was 18 I smoked dope for the first time, that night I could see this what I’d be doing all the time. 7 years later I could’t afford it anymore. I have an addictive personality and lived with my mom at the time, so I started drinking her wine and whiskey to have a buzz.
I haven’t stopped drinking heavily since then. All day and all night stopping when I needed a break. I haven’t worked since then either and I am up 20 to 24 hours a day no kidding because I don’t exert any energy and my body doesn’t need sleep.
I always hated beer but it was a cheap and an easy buzz. So for about 15 years I’ve been drinking at least 30 beers every couple days, alot of bottles of whiskey in there, I’ve had to stop drinking so much whiskey because my ribs pop out and the pain is excruciating, but I still buy bottles once and awhile. I slam big bottles of whiskey in less than 24 hours. Alot of wine I’ve drank too.
The rib thing is bad news, it hurts like fucking hell. You’re stuck in one position, you can’t move yourself because it’ll hurt more. If you get caught while you’re walking around, you’re fucked.
That’s my situation and I do think you should think about it, you can die.
