Newbie

Hi there,

I'm a newbie here. Been browsing this forum for the last couple of days and finally grew some balls and signed up today.

Anyway, just wanted to say "hey"

Ok, im not sure where to post, but I really need help. I feel like Im getting lost amongst the demons of my partner of 10 months...I understand that having a problem with drugs and drinking is HUGE, but believe me, it is HUGE to the person caught up in the whirlwind. I have this amazing guy, who would do anything for me, but can't show any emotion at all...and I can't live without it. He says give him time....He was a meth user for 10 years and has been sober from that for over a year. But he now drinks a huge amount, and occasionally smokes pot. He holds down a job, and is not violent ever. But I feel so alone as he likes to spend days in bed when not working, talking about the old life, and gets agitated when I bring up emotional stuff or how I am feeling about things. What am I to do....and please please dont think Im selfish, or impatient, I just feel very lost in all this. I know it sounds that I am a rescuer, maybe I am. But I also see this beautiful man who has been badly affected by his dad leaving home when he was a child, and now thinks hes worthless and not worthy of love. I dont want to give up on him....but I dont know what to do

Thank you for the warm welcome

I'm having a particularly hard day today (and I'm only in day 2!) Doing this all alone, so it's nice to have at least some support, even if it is only virtual

I quit cold turkey as well yesterday (although, if you want to get technical, I had my last drink at 8pm monday night so I'm a little over 2 days lol). I'm yet to feel any benefits, but I'll tell you one thing, I NEVER want to go through this again.

Welcome to SR RocketQueen.

I am somewhat of an expert on Day 2! I must have had thousands of them,I always found Day 2 the worst day when coming off the booze and found it increasingly difficult .

I remember my last Day 2 as if it was yesterday.I got through it and up until today have never needed to be in that hell again.

Keep yourself hydrated,water is the best.

Stay close to SR,there is always someone here to offer encouragement.

I wish you well.Stick with it.

Thanks Heath. I'm alternating water with gatorade to keep my electrolites (or whatever they are) up. The worst part is going through it alone... well, not alone... I have a 2 year old :/
