I just wanted to check in a share a bit of info about what’s going on with me.
I’m 29, and have been abusing alcohol for about 2 or 3 years. I get no joy from alcohol, and it has a very negative impact on my happiness, finances, and job performance.
After spending a few weeks reading and posting here last Summer, I successfully stopped drinking for about 3 months. I relapsed about 3 weeks ago. I’ve been drinking nearly every day since.
Like many of us, alcohol isn’t my only problem. I’m also extremely depressed, and struggle with an eating disorder.
I’m hoping to start another sober period. I’m not sure if today will be a sober day. The hardest thing in my experience has been psyching myself out early in the day, by thinking about drinking/not drinking that night.
Anyway, just wanted to vent, and put this out there. Thanks for reading.
