1 week soberrrrrr

Last Sunday on father’s day i had a seizure. I’ve never had one before and it happened in front of my whole family. I’ve been a closet alcoholic for about 8 years and the last couple years I’ve been getting worse and worse. I know it’s happening but I can’t control my want for it. That was until last Sunday, I stayed in the hospital 2 nights and boy what a wake up call. I haven’t had a sip of liquor since and joined this group because I could use some encouragement. Sorry for the long post, thanks to those of you that read till the end.



Welcome! And congratulations! Very good job! One week is very good!
I wish you all the best on your continued journey!

Hi Cody and welcome to the forum.

A week is a long time if you’ve been a closet alcoholic, I know how hard it is to live that lifestyle and the damage that the isolation can cause.

I too had seizures, (6 in one day) they are really scary. I went out and kept using though because the hospital treated me like a stupid drug addict and didn’t really look after me. Since then I cut down slowly and haven’t had a seizure since, but have still had to give everything up.

It’s hard to know where or who to turn to at times like this. Alcohol was my best friend. I realise now it’s my worst enemy. It makes a fool out of me, and im pretty foolish at times to begin with, so there’s no need to double my stupidity by putting alcohol in my system.

I look forward to hearing more from you and wish you all the best for your recovery. Remember to post here before you pick up a drink or drug - for any reason at all.
