Alcoholism, Addiction and Recovery
Hello folks it's time once again to bum everyone out with a thread about addictions and conquering them. I'll start by saying I'm making this thread to help keep myself sober. I was sober for 3 years straight before I had a small relapse onto alcohol in the summer of 2021. I kept doing my thing with small relapses until recently, I've decided to put my foot down and stop again, again. I've told the stories about why I stopped drinking before, but basically I tend to get black out and do really dumb shit. Like life threateningly bad to myself and others.
So this is to end the cycle of my secret drinking. I was addicted to cocaine too but hey I haven't ended up so bad I'm back to that shit. Recovery is a difficult process that is ugly and I'm super embarrassed every single time I relapse. There's never a good reason, just that I'm sad and don't wanna feel it anymore.
If it's ok this thread can just be for trauma dumping the shit you've had to deal with on the long path to being sober. Having a place to talk about this will definitely help and I'm sure I'm not the only one going through something like this. Apologies if there's already a thread like this or it's not kosher or whatever
