Ouch

One of those days... Can't get out of bed except to puke. Hearts thumping and anxiety is hitting hard. Paranoid about yesterday's actions.

What a painful way to live.

Welcome to SR, Jojie; glad you found us.

You never have to feel this way again; why not consider living a sober life; it can be pretty incredible.

I'm going to try for sobriety AGAIN. I wasn't able to sleep at all and this day is dragging on. Tomorrow I'll have more clarity.

Welcome, Jojie!

Is there someone nearby who can keep an eye on you? Alcohol detox can have dangerous consequences.

Boy do I think many of us can relate to that. I have never laid in bed all day, but I've had days that seemed to last a week because every second was miserable. When I quit drinking, I didn't have any more of those days. It was a miracle.

Yeah I a mean I remember those days all too much. Like when you wake up you hate the sun, you hate any noise, you hate the quite, you hate anything everything and especially everyone because they are doing stuff and you cant. I hated myself, I hated my dogs for wanting to go outside, I hated it all.

But then on the flip side, when you wake up sober, sure you might not LOVE everything but you dont hate everything either. You can get up, shower, brush your teeth, eat breakfast, get in your car, drive to work without running to the bathroom to yack. You can come home from your day and not feel you need that drink just to right yourself so you can function for the rest of the day.

You dont have to live like this. You dont have to be that person. You dont have to feel like that. But that can ONLY happen if you put down the drink and quit. I would go out and get hammered, not remember much, surely look like and a$$hat (and act like one too) and then feel like crap the next day all for a night you can hardly remember. Did you have fun? Who knows, because I sure didnt. I mean I must have had fun if I felt like that right?

Anyways it is a choice to make and consider. But really its up to you to stop and up to you to stay sober. There are many tools to help you in that journey but they only work if you want them to.

I think those feelings of exhaustion and anxiety becoming paranoia are the worst. I'm glad you posted and I hope you continue to read and post when you're feeling a bit better.

This was me last weekend. Apparently I went to see a band. Wouldn't have even known except for the colored wristband I woke up with on my wrist. Still had to ask my friend where I got it from. Apparently I had fun. *shrug* . How stupid.

In 2013, I had between 75 and 150 of those days... Ridiculous.
Hope you feel better. Permanently.
