This is IT...last drinking day

Hi! I'm about to go to bed on my last day of drinking. Tomorrow I start a long, difficult journey. Wish me luck, for I can't stand the thought of failure. I don't want to bore you all with my story.

I feel so hopeless right now. Like this will never work. I can't go to the doctor because I don't have health care.

It will work if you work it. You'll get a lot of support here and a lot of encouragement to go to meetings. How about the detox? you made need medical assistance... don't risk your life because you don't have insurance. Stay strong, you can do it!

Irish, just worry about the first day and tell what you want to tell one piece at a time. Don't put mountains to climb in your head. We'll be here when you come back. Can't force you to go to a doctor, but take care of yourself.

Good Luck!
I'm on day 5 now and feel full of hope, whereas just 5 days ago I felt hopeless too.
You can do this x

IrishEyes contact the Salvation Army in your area, they can point you in the right direction for both a doctor as well as for rehab & a recovery program.

Do not try & detox without at a minimum medical advice.

It really would be a good idea to go to a dr or to an ER because detoxing from alcohol can be dangerous.

I hope you take care of yourself.

Welcome to SoberRecovery IrishEyes88

As difficult as the thought of living a life free from alcohol was, I still believed I could find the determination and persistence to make it work. For me, a once lost soul in addiction it took finding a personalized addition treatment program to make the necessary changes in my behavior to make it work.

I hope you too can find it necessary to use one of the many ways that can successfully treat addition problems. Sobriety is so wort it.

I will wish you the best of Lucky! What you are about to try is something probably knew to you unless you are a Repeat Offender such as myself. I still feel the hopelessness even after 6 months at times, but I don't focus on that I divert my mind into something that is more positive.

Hi Irish

Good to meet you
I tried for years to win over this - it's not easy but it's very possible - with support.

Once I stopped thinking about maybe controlling my drinking and just gave the whole idea away, it got a whole lot easier

Don't give up!
D

You haven't failed. Failure is in NOT trying.

If it were easy, we wouldn't be on this forum. I'm glad you're here with us.

Keep posting. Don't give up.

Recovery is worth it - YOU are worth it.

We're here for you. Take care ~
