from the age of about 17/18 i knew i was an alcoholic if id of carried on the way i was drinking i think id be dead by now, im 24. but at 20 i spent a long time incarcerated (4 years) which saved my life, i was released from prison 5 months ago and since then i've detoxed off of methadone, im about 2 months clean off the meth but its not getting any easier. im battling with the depression and anxiety that has come as a part of the package of the detox. And this has triggered me back into having like 3/4 day binged on alcohol because i find that it eases the withdrawal symptoms from the meth but makes me feel worse the next day, so its like a catch 22 situation, i dont want to go down the road i was on when i was 20 because if i do that i most probably wont make it to 30, any advice would be appreciated because i really need to combat this whilst im not alcohol dependant because as anyone will know its twice as hard then, iv not drank for 4 days and its payday friday i just dont know how im goin to sit there all day knowing that the shop is just round the corner and not drink, the first days i usually start on strong larger but by the 3/4 days i can garentee it will be vodka thats hows quick it spirrals....
Thanks u for listening and any advice will be greatly appreciated i think this is the first time iv ever spoke in this much depth about this issue.
