Welcome!

I have just came to the site myself. I am like you, successful for a bit and then I fall right back into drinking. My problem is that I lack motivation. I came here to work on that. Glad that you are here and working on it aswell. Hopefully I can be a support to you even though I am also struggling myself.

I am new to this site but not new to alcohol addition and it’s lies. I have tried to quit more times than I have fingers and toes. Sometimes it’ll stick for several weeks. But usually not much longer than a month. I would love to seek help. Professional counseling. But my income has been greatly impacted by shut downs in the state I live in due to Covid19. I hope to find some help here. I “had” been doing well with daily free videos from The Naked Mind. But they have ended and I started drinking again. I just need some support and help.

Hello,

I struggled a lot and then my shrink led me to AA back in 2006. I can relate to what you said in your post.

The book Alcoholics Anonymous touches upon 3 aspects of the disease. The alcoholic is spiritually, mentally and physically diseased.

When not drinking, alcoholics are restless irritable and disconteded. Usually this state of mind leads them to look for solace in Alcohol. They then take a drink and then the craving kicks in.

There are some short stories in the chapter "More about alcoholism" in the book alcoholics anonymous to highlight these 3 aspect of the "disease". See if you can relate to it.
