I am a recovering drunk! I've been sober for 8 months and I can finally see a better future for myself. Sometimes, I think about having a drink, but I think of that hang over I had to deal with the last time I was drunk. I'm happy that I've found this web site because I stop going to AA and now y'all can be my support

i suffered from an addition to drinking for over 20 years. i have been sober now for over 5 years thanks to a judge that mandated rehab. after two years of failing at outpatient i was sent to an in house program for 30 days. there it finally dawned on me that i actually could stop drinking. its still not easy... i dont crave the drink but i find myself angry that getting sober did not fix my problems. and on top of that there are scores of past friends that do not believe i have quit. dual diagnosis is a tough row to hoe........

I would like to ask if any of you had this problem. My nephew was in rehab for a number of months, he went from there to live with my sister back to rehab, homeless shelter for one day and then my sister brought him to live with my mom. I live a little away from them. To make a l ong story short - he is starting to take my mom's sleeping pills. I counted them and there were 13 and now there are 6 left. Ok from Saturday to today-she should have 10 left but only 6 are in the bottle. Also, he took my car out and I confronted him and he said no. Hm....there was mud in the car and I don't have any mud around my place or my mom's. He had access to my keys since I left them there. My mom doesn't want to do anything because he will be leaving in two half weeks. I say we need to confront. She said no because everybody already accuses him especially his parents. His other brother has no communication with him. Long story there. Please give me some advice. I want to make sure my mom doesn't stress to much because she has a heart condition.

Thank you!♥

My name is Bipolarpeanut. I had several incidents happen over the past couple months.I have been bipolar 1 for 27years ago diagnoses. I grew up in a violent alcholic home mom and dad would drink to a rage and got physically terriorist on themselves. I was the oldest so I had to hold hands on my 2 younger sisters ears. I swore I would be the family member that would break the cycle. I was always on serious psyc meds back then so drinking was crazy in itself. I could not find my glass to mouth. Thorazine and haldol did that then. I am now 42 and up to recent had never had a drink. I was having low-t issues so I started the shots about 8 months. One night I had my first glass of wine, then another and so on til all Of a sudden I turned into the most evil monster ever. I beat up several people while growling and cussing, sppiting and kicking. This last time I kicked a cop in the chest. He tazered me 3 times as I laughed at him. Lucky I went to hospital not jail. I was told the steroids, meds, and alchohol caused the meltdown. PLEASE IF ANYONE IS DRINKING ON STEROIDS STOP. you could hurt someone or yourself and never know it. NO MORE FOR ME!
