Exclamation I need help

Hello I'm a newcomer.
I drink on evenings, but my problem is about night terrors.
Every night 1 hour after sleeping, I become a terrorist. Go out of house, kicking the cars ets.
Does anybody know what to do?

I am not sure I follow. So you literally go outside and kick things? Are you awake when you do this?

If not I think you are sleep walking. Night terrors usually make you feel you need to escape something, not attack it.

Quitting drinking might be a good start but I strongly suggest a visit to your doctor.

Alcohol affects many areas of the brain - but the cerebral cortex (the area that usually inhibits irrational behavior) may be what is causing this behavior. With our inhibitions removed by alcohol, alcholics do all sorts of dangerous and destructive things. You may have some anger issues that are surfacing when you are drunk. You may not be sleepwalking as much as "blacked out." You may want to consider seeing a doctor and seeing if rehab would be right for you, as it sounds as though your alcoholism is showing symptoms that are immediately life-threatening. Please don't hesitate to call a doctor today and make an appointment, or if you can't afford that, find your local AA meeting and go there and ask for help from the group, and they may be able to point you to a rehab. Your life depends on it. God bless.

I too suggest you quit drinking and see your doctor before something bad happens during one of your episodes.
