New start!

Hello everyone, I am new to this. All you stories are very inspirational. I would like to share my situation. I don’t drink everyday but when I start I will be on a 3 day bender, shouting, breaking everything in the house, the emotions range from anger to regret to sadness, it takes me 3 weeks to be able to talk to my partner again. The anxiety afterwards is the worse, so here I am, I am tired of this and hurting everybody around me, time to change and I am excited. Good luck to everybody, stay strong.

It means the world, to be surrounded, by the loving people in here, who’s having your back.

I was a everyday drinker, but not of the violent type. I would just drink on average 20 beers a day to not be sick, most people couldn’t even tell i was drinking. I was certainly killing myself with that shit. Be grateful you’re not at the point i reached but know that it will get worse.

You’re in a very good place with a lot of knowledgeable, caring people. Welcome.

You are awesome, good job.

People wouldn’t have guessed that I was a drunk neither, we really became good at disguising it… didn’t we.?
