    Hello everyone,

    I just wanted to post to say that I really ejnoy this website. I finally get to see the perspective of other people going through the same issue as me.

    I started drinking at 17, I’m 25 now, and I have had my share of binges and hangovers. Normally I would drink almost every day and go to work feeling really bad, and even call in to work and risk getting in trouble. The weekends would consist of me drinking every night until I was drunk.

    One of the reasons why it’s easy for me to drink is because I don’t get sick or stupid when I drink. A few weeks ago, however, I made a fool of myself in front of some friends when I could barely walk. I have been taking care of my mom over the last two years and that is hard and depressing by itself. I have had to leave jobs in order to take care of her and my drinking just got out of hand.

    So right now I HAVE to quit or risk not even having money to pay my car payment and hold a good job. I need to be sober and I can’t wait until I start feeling better. I have never gone through hard withdrawals, just anxiety and bad depression. When I don’t drink it is really hard to sleep and I just don’t know what to do with myself when 6 p.m. roles around.
