I was really apprehensive to "join" because of the usual reasons, fear of rejection, embarrassment etc. Just looking at some of the discussions I see right away that many of you understand my deepest pains...some of which I have never been able to even articulate! I have abused alcohol for more than half of my life.I am beginning to understand some of the reasons why I abuse and hate myself which is good for recovery but the unfortunate truth is I am so dependent on this chemical and I do not know how to control the wants and needs any longer. Like another new member mentioned, because I only drink at night (same thing with my cigarette smoking) I think the perception is that I am not a "troubled" drinker. The truth is, I fell into the habit of drinking at night when my daughter went to bed (14 years ago) because I couldn't relax the way I wanted to while she was up and needed me. I did not even start this habit to shield her from my behaviors...sadly. Now the reason I drink at night is part habit, part scheduling but the biggest reason is to hide.I do not want anyone to see me-simple as that. I know my health is not the greatest...the more I think about it the more depressed I get and the more hopeless I feel and the more I drink...I just do not know where to begin!
