I can't stop drinking even for a day suddenly

Discussion in 'Alcohol' started by coloradodanimal, Jul 6, 2019.

  1. Hi, I'm 31 and Male and I've suddenly found myself incapable of going without alcohol for a morning let alone a day. I not long ago could will my way to a couple of alcohol free days but now I'm tempted by my audio hallucinations to drink every morning and all day. I try to moderate with a breathalyzer and it helps but isn't a perfect cure. I've done AA in the past for several years until I began drinking last summer when my roommate at the time abused our sober living agreement. I've had a decent year but my red flag of dependency is going off at this point and I could use some advice.

    Colorado, let me share with you what allowed me to quit my addiction:

    Turning my life over to my Higher Power was the first thing I did that gave me the power to quit my addiction. I would say "God come into my life; I give my life to thee; I need you in my life, God". I don't attempt to explain how this helped me, it just did.

    Taking the actions of love toward other people really helped me too. Start treating the people around you with more love. Do more loving things for them. Start helping people. When I did this, the addiction just melted away over time.

    I cannot recommend enough that you go back to your AA group and attend meetings regularly. They say that no one can experience addiction recovery alone.

    As with you, I’ve heard 100’s say that they’ve done AA and almost invariably they’re referencing AA meetings. AA meetings are not the Alcoholics Anonymous suggested program of recovery, it’s the 12 Steps, which is examining myself and no one else. When I’d placed the circumstances for my relapse based on others behavior, I was playing the victim. When I stopped playing the victim role by blaming others and focused only on myself, I began my road to recovery.

    Drug and alcohol abuse affects many other people than just the person who abuses. The family
    members usually suffer from anger, uncertainty, shame, fear, confusion and feelings of helplessness.
    Even if the abusers decide to seek treatment, their addiction still takes its toll on their family and friends
    while they are getting sober. Even after the addict gets rid of his habit, the effects of drugs and alcohol
    abuse may linger. Here comes the role of family therapy.

    People challenged with alcoholism are dependent on alcohol and its effects. They drink despite the consequences. They often experience cravings for alcohol and find it difficult to stop drinking once they have started. When they stop drinking, they often find that they have a physical dependence on the substance and start to experience withdrawal symptoms, such as nausea, shaking, headaches, difficulty sleeping, and anxiety.

    The majority of people who stop drinking alcohol with immediate effect will go on to suffer from mild to moderate withdrawal symptoms of alcohol due to the body reacting to the cutting off of a substance that it has become dependent on. Alcohol withdrawal syndrome is a term used to describe the body's subsequent state once the alcohol is no longer consumed after a long period of consumption.
