Not so much pain but the familiar story of drink withdrawals! Woke up with the shakes. (Not shaky, the forum guide!) In his dreams lol! But seriously, the drinking gotta stop. Feel like shit this morn. It's not good when I gotta have a few pints just to feel normal. When is it gonna end??

Cally I use to drink like a proper fish everyday at anytime of the day, it is possible to get out of that drinking pattern.

I dont know how much you drink, but if you drink as much as I was doing and you want to change then the first 3 weeks will be the worst, but its well worth it.

never just stop drinking straight away, it can be dangerous

Good luck.

Yeah I'm doing 3 litres of that frosty jacks cider a day. Sometimes more. Chemical shit, I doubt it's ever seen an apple! It's basically legal poison I think! I've managed to alienate all my friends & family over the years with drunk texts etc. Really not a good situation umpa

Talking about booze is always a tricky one, I use to drink cider too because it was cheap as chips.

like you say its just chemic crap, honestly I so know what its like to get pissed and argue with family.

if you ever want to pm me your welcome, I do drink now in moderation but I am slipping backwards again, I managed to be T Total for over 3 years after a liver scare with a blood test. Luckily my liver recovered when I stopped the booze.

I would say ditch the cider and drink something less chemic like fosters, at least that would be better on the system until you can cut down more.

i know its not easy I really do cally. X

Aww sis :hug1: do you not think it's for the best that your booze in-take is on a budget? Or do you think that your mum is showing that she doesn't trust you?

U don't know but I've a degree in psychology! Now then..The human mind is 99% subconscious and 1% conscious. Meaning the subconscious always wins. I wake up thinking craig, don't buy drink. But the stupid part of me say yeah, that's a good idea! Same goes for all addictions
