Unhappy Help

Hi, I'm new to this website. I've been an alcoholic for around 10 years and recently my drinking has been escalating fast. I stayed home from work today because I am having some withdrawel symptoms. I have never been drunk at this job but I'm sure my bosses are wondering what is up with me because my anxiety and depression has been obvious. I really want to get sober and I have meetings I go to. I just thought this site would also be helpful in keeping me from picking up a bottle. I am miserable and my life is out of control.

Welcome to SR Kayla

I remember feeling like you do about my boss at work. I must have seemed a right state. I managed to get sober without taking time out which seems like a miracle now. I'm sure you'll find this place invaluable to you x

You're certainly not alone here Kayla

I found going through this site and reading about other people's experiences really helped me. This is only my third day being dry, but I have found it isn't so hard this time around because I don't feel alone now.

Best of luck to you and best wishes!

I wish my shakes would go away. I'm so uncomfortable. And my face it hot, red and puffy.

Hi Kayla - I'm sorry you're feeling bad right now, but it will pass - & you never have to feel that way again. I'm glad you found us - I hope you'll feel better tomorrow. (Maybe you could see a doctor to help you through withdrawal?)
