Have tried counseling but not for substances ,alchohol specifically but there just days when trying to cope is very difficult. And slip into a few vthree drink mode just to take the edge off . But have friends that love their beer
And the peer pressure ...... is difficult . Am not fond of most beers normally . But as the days get more stressful , I cannot just lie in bed all day . My body seems to prohibit this , after enduring some frustrations . Slip into the bottle
Have no one to impress or worry on me . Normally so , what the hec . Have endured some REALLY SERIOUS SH-T
In my life . So we’re does this end up . Turned to god occasionally but it seems am doomed to repeat mistakes
Of some kind or the other . Am so frustrated with my circumstance , I could just scream , an endless scream.

Yeah I totally can relate to you. I've no one to impress either..
Drinking is a sad and often lonely road and in fact my longest relationship. Makes me happy, sad, angry and every emotion in between. Except I'm not particularly a nice person if I decide to drink a bottle of spirits say 15-20ish drinks in a few hours sometimes less. Can I scream with you???!? I'm sure it'd be very therapeutic. I am the biggest hypocrite when it comes to repeating mistakes.. I am sad, lonely.

I'm in massive pain. Alcohol problem + autism (with unique characteristics) + other big problems I don't wish to disclose.

The mental health services are at primitive level in public healthcare at least. There was no help, only poison pills were offered.

I think it is a great idea, but then I did say so lol. I think I have seen enough mention of peoples' alcohol issues and self medication issues to warrant a place for them to share and maybe advise and support one another in trying to break free of the addictions if they wish to.

Awesome!

School me! I need help ppls. :? :cry:

Alcohol puts me to sleep. So sometimes I drink to stop caring so much about everything and the lack of my brain thinking if 1000s I’d things I just settle down slow down and sleep. I’m a light weight so sometimes all it takes is just one ale and I’m out but afterwords I feel so much better. My dads an alcoholic so I’ve always been wary when u do drink. All though I think it might be a placebo effect since I had the exact same experience when my partner gave me a nonalcoholic drink with our telling me it was nonalcoholic.
