It's a battle I'm facing too. Small steps, like if you can cut the spirits out and just cut down a bit. I've never really been able to fully stop drinking, am currently on bacolfen and that cuts down the cravings a bit.
I have alcohol abuse issues. Things get bad when my life isn't going well.
Last time I starting abusing alcohol again was when my relationship wasn't going well, well was sinking.
Now no husband and doing pretty well.
If I do start using alcohol again probably a sign things aren't good.
I am on 2 alcohol drugs. One works miraculously for me it just takes away my urge and interest/thoughts of alcohol
I think you may need to go into a detox center and clear your brain and then make a decision without being on alcohol.
I am a alcoholic not drinking right now. I was drinking while taking all my mental health medications and I was shocked once I realized why they say not to use alcohol on each bottle while on medication. This is a motive for me not to drink.
I hate the side effects of my medications and adding alcohol really screws up my system. Lots of hugs and definitely go impatient if you can.
!u drinking got really out of hand when I was 21 and social anxiety was really bad so I started drinking before university classes. I really liked it it was cool. I went to university drank and played PlayStation drink on liked it. But of course, I got no work done drinking every day and !are to quit university. I kind of despise university for not helping me and making me quit despite me telling them my anxiety and drinking was getting out of hand.
So then I went to the doctor and said I drink too much, he's a nice guy but there's not much he could so. He told me go to aa, I have been, not for a long time, but with my social anxiety it makes it hard to mix with people and for me to fit in. Like, I can not have free flowing conversations like normal people do. My social skills are shit.I always say tomorrow I will stop, but then I don't, I am not an all day drinker but when it gets to around 8 o'clock I drink 1/4 of vodka and two bottles of wine until 11 o'clock then eat pizzas and take my dog out. Suffice to say, I have also it on a lot of weight and for someone who was into fitness I am now clinically obese.
