Hello all... i just joined this group today. It's my first attempt at seeking help. I HAVE to stop drinking but I don't know if I'm "there" yet. I know everyone has their own "bottom" but I don't know if I've hit mine yet. I also don't want to wait to hit mine. I am a functioning alcoholic but it's starting to get me depressed. Every morning I struggle to get out of bed because I'm hungover and tired. I pass out by like 9pm but then am wide awake at 2 and can't fall back to sleep. My drinking has gotten way out of control. I have recently started hiding it from my husband and as soon as he's out of sight, I am swigging right from the bottle! I've never done this before in my life. I've been a heavy drinker for many, many years but now I feel like I can't wait to get home so that I can get my "fix". My son has been in FL in rehab for alcohol and drugs for two years. I am so beyond ashamed of myself I just want to die sometimes. He knows that I drink but thinks it's just socially. I drink to get drunk. Period. I have tried several times to stop on my own but honestly get bored out of my skull. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
