    Hi…I am Kristina, and I am an alcoholic. I have ‘lurked’ here for awhile wanting to get help, but have never posted. I have overcome a huge pill addiction, did great, and I was actually very, very happy. I really don’t understand ‘why’ I started drinking so much. I can only conclude that addicts transfer from one addiction to another. I was always a social drinker, quit the pills (that was HELL), clean for atleast a year and a half. I have concluded that no matter what drug you have used, you still have an addictive personality. I don’t think the majority of people who start abusing a substance hate themselves, or want their family and loved ones to suffer. I think we do it because inadvertently we are trying to numb some kind of pain. My plan is to quit drinking…period…and work on me, and figuring all of this out. I think this is a big eye-opener, because I now understand that I can’t have just one drink, because if there is a problem there, I will try to drown it!
