I always feel so guilty for saying I'm not doing well because I have so much to be grateful for. I'm so, so stressed and tired.

Congratulations Childofchaos - that's awesome.


Desoxyn, well done for choosing a less harmful alternative to the 8 ball.


Murderface, we all have days where we feel bad and overwhelmed, even if we know we have stuff to be grateful for. It's normal, it's how we choose to react that matters. I don't think I've seen you posting in the addictions thread before, so welcome.


I'm struggling a bit with cravings, but I know they're directly related to my clonazepam taper so I'm finding them to dismiss with the thought "you don't really want to drink, this is just your brain chemistry being wonky"



Hope you all have a good day.

I told my best RL friend about my alcohol problem today. He lives in another country now so we donít see each other often although we talk all the time. It was nice getting it off my chest and he was understanding and said I did well to go and seek help.

"Tweaky, it's important to me that you don't get a benzo problem. Please don't. I do understand how seductive that lazy, worryless slack can be. But I also know how much damage a benzo addiction can do and it happens whilst the drug is keeping you unaware of the fact that its vandalising your mind and is busy closing off important aspects of your brain, like creativity and the ability to engage with other people effectively. If you can't resist them when they're there, then honestly you need to put them beyond use, possibly somewhere that takes a good walk to get to, or buried in a place so that you can retrieve them until you've sobered up and only get enough for the week each time. If you find that when you retrieve them you get all of them, then you honestly need to destroy all of them. In the mean time, do not get to a place where you need to taper. Tapers only work in around 10% of cases. That's 10% in a full individuals life. The remaining 90% cannot do it and spend the rest of their lives addicted or are forced to CT by circumstances. That's not a place you want to be and not a place that I want to see you in. You're on the edge, trust me. [00:56] Sorry to be that guy, but I'd rather tell you how dangerous the dog is than watch you get bitten. [00:57] You're creative and write well, which is one of the things benzos kill the urge for. Don't do it. Don't waste that. It takes a long time to get back and leaves the nagging doubt that it ever will return completely. [00:58] *stumbles down from the soapbox because he's drunk again on lab-grade ethanol*"

I haven't taken benzos in 2 days. I will only take for rare panic attack. I know the dangers too much but I was reckless because methylphenidate felt good with the benzos. But they are placebo without stimulants or anxiety and I don't have GAD (Zero anxiety, just rare panic attacks for no reason). I take my vyvanse as prescribed and if it's not enough, I take caffeine.

I do good in the mornings. Tell myself I wonít drink that day. Then by the night Iíve had seven glasses of wine and I black out and donít remember how I got to bed. This is almost an everyday thing now and I donít know how to stop. Iím on medication for a stomach ulcer right now and I just. Need to stop.

Littleearthquakes, I was exactly the same way until I made a plan and got help to stop drinking. It's really hard to do on your own. I'd suggest talking with your Dr., be totally honest about how much you're drinking, and have them help you find out what options are available to you for support.


I had a followup appointment with the ER Respirology clinic re the black spot on my lung yesterday. I told the Dr., doing my exam that I was an alcoholic but had been sober for 5 months, one week, and he was super nice and congratulatory. Made me feel good.
