hi! Im new on this community.Well,this is kind of hard for me but here goes!...Ive always been a weekend drinker,got pissed on a Friday or Saturday night.Tha when on for years,the occasional mid-week drink also.Im not a very nice drunk although i can be really entertaining i usually get nippy and try to pick fights with anyone who even looks at me in the wrong way,this has gotten worse the past couple of years.Ive recently been dx bipolar(although ive known for years).Im finding myself increasingly craving a drink,its the only time i feel "normal" and happy.Ive had a drink every night for the past week(just a couple of glasses of red wine) apart from last night.Well tonight im really craving a drink and it scares me.My Dad is an alcoholic,now in a care home as he has wrecked everything in his life and doesnt seem to give a shit.I cant even say i know him as my mum and dad split when i was 3.Ive only met him around 10 times in my whole life,When i drink if there is drink there i will drink untill its gone,have no self control and dont know when to stop.I can drink lots and lots.Ive smashed up my house a couple of times in past year but after that i havent drunk for a month or so then i let it creep back in again.I cant say ive craved alcohol up untill now but im really fighting the urge to go get some and i hate feeling like this x
