Alcohol Escapism    Reply with quote  

I'm so unhappy and all I can do when I get home from work the last few months is drink. I feel better until I run out. I've run out now and by the time I get to the shop they will have stopped serving and I'm panicing. All I look forward to every day is the drinks I will have when I get home. I feel like I've turned into a complete freak. Everyone comments on how much I drink and I don't even let on - they must guess. I'm scared as there's little else to live for right now but a few drinks each day which give me an hour or so of carefreeness. Don't know what to do anymore am stuck in this hell hole. It's not just the alcohol, it's my whole life. But I feeling I'm becoming too dependant. I don't know how else to feel better.

There are definatly lots of places out there that help people deal with their drinking problems. Try looking up a hotline or talking to a psychologist. It's good you are recognizing your problem.

Hello Change,

You post seems to indicate that you are fully aware that you are an alcoholic and this alone is about 80 per cent of the cure.

Now there are many approaches in treating alcoholism, but I tend to look at the biological angle as to causes of alcoholism. Please read:

"Why hypoglycemics choose alcohol as their preferred source of energy" at:

http://www.hypoglycemia.asn.au/articles/hypos_prefer_alcohol.html

If this makes sense to you, it will give you some clues as to how to treat it.

Best of luck.
