where to begin. i am a 31 year old alcoholic with schizophrenia. i have been "diagnosed" with schizophrenia for i guess 5 years now and it affects my life so much i am on disability and can't work more than a few hours a week. i also suffer from depression which i assume stems from that and the fact my mother died when i was 9 from breast cancer. anyways this brings me to the point of my drinking... i drink a lot, not just often, but a lot when i drink. it's not just me tho it's everyone. my friends and i hangout (bar/home) a couple times a week and get trashed. and the nights we don't go out i always think about having a drink. i don't always have one, but i think about it. so, i'm going cold turkey. tuesday night was the last time i had anything to drink. guess that means i'm 3 days sober. if anyone has any advice that has been through this i would love to hear it. i'll keep you updated on how things go.

I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
