Newbie here and could use some advice and encouragement


hi everybody. I'm 30 years old and have finally come to grips that I have a problem. I've been drinking for about 15 years. Now I'm not a person that drinks everyday. I usually drink once a week and have between 8 and 15 beers in that sitting. I have been doing this for years. My anxiety is getting the worse of me as I always think I'm dying from something and also I think it might be to late and I already caused to much harm. My blood work is always good and blood pressure is usually good so I pretty much always get a clean bill of health. I always get weird stomach pains and think the worst or chest pains. I'm finally done with booze. I found this site and I'm hoping I can get through This. Thanks for taking the time to read and please if there's any advice that you would have to a drinker who only drinks once a week please let me know. Thanks again

Thank you for your response. I'm hoping mine disappears as well. I think alcohol plays a huge role in anxiety.

Welcome to SR, Castertroy08. It's never too late. The human body in general and liver in particular have amazing recuperative powers. Give sobriety a real chance and you'll be amazed how quickly you'll start feeling better.

Though if you really think you've done some damage, getting a full checkup while being honest with a doctor is always a good idea.

There is a ton of great wisdom and support to be found here. Glad you found us and hope to see you checking in often.

Welcome to the family. If alcohol is causing any problems, best to just stop drinking. My anxiety got a lot better after I got sober. You'll find lots of support here.

Thank you. Anxiety is a horrible thing. I always feel like I'm dying but in all reality am not. I'm praying getting sober will make all these problems go away.
