I don't know. Why did that happen?

How has it become a bigger problem? Could you give us a little background?

I am now thinking about it ALL the time! Before i just did what i wanted not much thought, just i"should" cut back or quit, depending on the hangover. Im not 100% sure i want to yet. Im very confused. Just trying something. I have cut way back and feel a little crazy when i should feel better.

Cutting back or trying to made me feel crazy, for sure. Cutting back doesn't work for alcoholics and it causes obsessive thoughts. Stopping drinking completely will end the obsessive thoughts and allow you to recover.

I agree. I only joined 2 days ago but since being on the forum and addressing my alcohol usage it's all I think about.

That being said I think I am supposed to be!! Alcohol has been a daily constant with me for over 10 years. If I'm not consuming, I'm thinking about consuming. Think it is part of the process?!?

Good luck, you're not alone in your thoughts

read Alcoholics Anonymous and see if it clicks with you

or maybe it's like having a car accident and losing that vehicle. everywhere you look, you see that very same vehicle, like it's the only one on the road....

If I tried to control my drinking I only drank more. There's a saying "I take the first drink & then the drink takes me". Only completely abstaining has taken away the obsession to drink (for me). Do you have any supports besides SR in place?

I found when I decided to quit, the addicted part of me really kicked back hard...

Quitting is hard. It doesn't last tho, and the more support you can find, the easier it is I think
