I’ve been on and off this app for years. Really enjoy the company it brings me.
Having a foggy Monday morning after a bender Saturday. Things have gotten “better” … I’m not missing work, not going to bars in a blackout, confining drinking to one day a week. That’s my version of “moderation.”
I’ve learned a lot about myself. My main reason for drinking is adhedonic depression. Basically nothing gives me pleasure but this washes away with alcohol.
I don’t look forward to sunny mornings so who cares if I’m hung over, right?
I got on Prozac and gained a lot of weight, trying to lose it.
So I made another appointment with a different psychiatrist and a dentist appointment after years of not going.
I want to give AA another chance. I’ve struggled to call myself an alcoholic but who cares about the moniker.
