Alcoholism Support Group

Alcoholism is the continued consumption of alcoholic beverages, even when it is negatively affecting your health, work, relationships and life. If you think alcohol is causing you to lose control, it's time to seek help. Our group is a safe place to vent, check in, get back up if you fall, and reach sobriety.

    my mind plays tricks on me

    1
    I have struggled with drinking for years and have been a binge drinker since I was 14 and first started to drink..so I've only ever drunk to get drunk. But because I don't drink everyday I have always been conflicted in my own mind as to whether or not I really have a problem and its easy to convince myself I don't when I want to just have the one with friends... Then im back in same boat again...

    is it possible to control your alcohol?

    6
    I've been struggling with alcoholism for many,many years. My biggest problem is once I start drinking I won't stop until I pass out. And these situations are happening much more frequently. I've even stayed home from work just to enjoy a bottle of vodka for the day and "relax". I started hiding alcohol from my significant other and things were going down hill. I recently had an episode where I...

    It's been awhile....

    since I asked for help.  But I do stop by every day to read the different posts & comments.  Many of the youtube videos were very helpful but I needed extra help for the effort to finally quit.  I purchased the book, The Easy Way to Stop Drinking by Alan Carr, following the directions to the letter.  I kept an open mind, didn't jump ahead, read with a good attitude & clipped & underlined...

    Hey! I'm new here and figured I would try to explain where I'm at and possibly get some advice. Currently I'm not a full blown alcoholic. Two years ago however I was depressed, I drank every day, not during the early day but would start drinking by mid afternoon and black out at least three times a week, even if I worked at 5am.I started drinking heavily at 19 after my mother died, I used to chug...

    Suffering from Self-Pity

    8
    What do I do about self-pity.  For the first years of my recovery I had a lot of income.  Now it has shifted and I owe more than I am making.  Today I made a 1000 dollar payment, to a collection agency, and after I found it about a week ago it left my credit report because it was 7 years old.  Before that I found out I owe two government agencies a combined amount of around 7000 dollars....

    the grass is greener on the other side

    I had this mentality the entire time I was sober.  The entire time I was sober.  I was sober.  I'm not anymore.  I got the whiskey plates off my car last fall and I remember putting new plates on, skipping AA, grabbing a six pack, and watching the election debates.  We now have a new president and it's felt like a blur to me.  I've been falling back on my old behavior.  I'm "responsible"...

    Recovery...Good or Bad?

    5
    I ask this questions everyday when I wake up, this is my second time in recovery and I still struggle with "God I want to drink...God keep me sober...this isn't so bad & I can have just two and be fine today" this is a constant wheel in my head. I struggled for 16 years with this addiction with only small bits of drying out in between. Intellectually I look at the choices I remember making...

    What now?

     This is the first time I have ever sought out support. I am afraid as I type, the words and tears will not stop. My husband is an amazing man and we have been married for over 20 years. We have two wonderful teenagers and have built an amazing life.  Despite all of the great things in our lives he struggles with alcohol and his struggles come in cycles. When we were first married, we were...

    Told my best friend

    Today I told my best friend that I am an alcoholic, and even worse, that I am weaning off of benzos as well. I had no choice but to tell her. I had a severe panic attack in front of her and she was freaked out and judged me. I then explained why I was having shakes and panic attacks. I expected more judgment, but she only reacted well and said, "Why didn't you tell me?" I am ashamed that I hid...

    My husband is a great guy MOST of the time. He would give anyone anything he has if they need it, even if that means he has to do without, except alcohol. He is 20 years my senior and despite normality he is the one person God has put on earth for me and he feels the same. We have been through more in the past 4 years of a relationship than most people go through in a lifetime. 8 months into...

    Socialising

    Can anyone tell me how they manage a social life around people who are drinking when you are not. I  want sobriety so much and do not want to fail but I also want to maintain  friendships with people who probably do too much drinking. Can I have both or am I kidding myself???
