why do I do this to myself?

Yesterday I felt amazing. Sober and so happy and then I started thinking that maybe one drink would make me feel even i went to the bar at 3 pm and had four shots. Today I hate myself and cant figure out where i went wrong. I feel like everyone hates me. I am in a panic and feel like there is no way i can beat this. please help!

What have you tried before Tipper? I understand where you're coming from. For years I couldn't get past one day sober. I credit the support here and AVRT with getting me over the first hurdle. You'll find lot's of help and support round here x

Hi Tipper

I think a lot of us felt too ashamed to ask for help.
In my case I only got worse when I wouldn't ask for help.

Cultivate the skill. It's hard to start with but not impossible.

Learn to reach out when your head tellls you a drink will make you feel better.
You'll be glad you did, later

Nobody hates you.
People would stop worrying about what people think of them if they only realized how little they did.
Replace the negative thoughts with song lyrics and you will realize that we are all the same but different. We are one.
