Unhappy new to this.

Yes, I'm a alcoholic. I enjoy drinking. I went to my education class for my DUI tonight. Its costly n time consuming. I report for UA's once a week n have been clean despite me having drinks once in a while. I have cravings n I try hard to ignore them. It sucks.

Mayham-

It gets better. IMO, drinks "once in awhile" lead back to full blown alcoholism. At least they did for me.

Hang in there.

I could never have one, or a few. It was all or nothing for me.
Hope you're not in the same boat as me, because believe me, it only gets worse.

Best to you.

We all enjoyed drinking at the beginning... it was fun fun fun, until it wasn't fun anymore. I'm glad you have acknowledged you are an alcoholic. Glad you are here

Hi Mayham,

So despite a DUI and being subjected to UA's you are still drinking?

What is your plan for the future with regard to your alcoholism, if I may ask?

Welcome to SR mayham

I wanted to drink for a long time too...but I knew I had to stop completely...there's no once win a while for me...not really...I suspect thats the same for you too?

Support really helped me with the cravings. It helped to know I wasn't alone, and with people who understood, and who I could be accountable to.

Glad you've joined us

D

What you are going through is one of the costs so drinking, the part that is not enjoyed.

Once our youthful resiliance fades it gets more costly.

Make use of the opportunity you have been given.
