    I need help, or support, or something. I’ve been in and out of programs, only ever tried A.A. I was sober for 6 months, then relapsed and have since been drinking for 1.5+ years. I’ve been drinking on and off for longer than that.

    I have no idea what to do. My doc gave me a shot of Vivitrol(1 month XR Naltrexone). I can’t tell if it’s helping or not because i’m still drinking.

    He also gave me some valium to taper off to control the DT’s. I had 2 days sober, using the valium to help, until last night. I drank a lot. I was probably somewhere near 0.2 BAC. I’m not in any recovery programs right now and A.A. has never helped me.

    I just don’t know what to ******* do anymore. I don’t want to drink, i don’t want to die, my supportive family is having nightmares about me. I don’t want to lose my job/social life by going to in patient care. In patient and out patient care has never kept me sober for longer than 6 months. It’s been about 8 hours since my last drink, i didn’t sleep at all last night, and i’m breaking down. I know i can ******* do this, i need direction.

    I’m 23 years old and right now i feel like i have no future, no life ahead of me. I’m not suicidal, the only thing that has kept me alive these past 5 years has been rock climbing and family. I have found a passion that is worth living for but i just cant ******* quit.

    Researching SMART and AVRT right now. Please give me some direction/support i could really use it right now.
