I just joined and am going to order the book and cd's. I feel miserable and quite weepy my normal morning after a beer binge. I had almost gone a week without drinking and i couln't even make it 1 week. I am hungover and won't move from my bed. My daughter wants to play and go places and normally we'd do something but i feel so sick. It's such a struggle and i am so envious of people that can just lightly drink. My whole day is ruined from my actions.:new:

Well done. You screwed up enough to get here, which means you're sick enough to get well. The best folks are here, (almost) on demand 24/7 globally. Time to kill the beast!

Hi Jupiter- welcome. There are some amazing people here that are starting alcohol free today, too. Care to join them?

I'm sorry about your hangover, but you know the drill- drink water, take painkillers, maybe take a benadryl if you have one. If you can roll out of bed.... shuffle to the car.... go to the big box store.... get some vitamins. Look for Super B Complex. Get some L GLutimate. Most of the big box stores, or local pharmacies have them.

Part of the craving is from the drop in sugar, so grab a Hershey's chocolate bar at the checkout... share it with your daughter. :l

Today's a new day. The sun is out, and your daughter wants to play. My daughters are 17 and 20, and we missed out on many play dates.... my own fault, but I was BUSY and my head was polluted. I can't change my past, but you can control your future.

So don't forget~ You aren't alone in this. And here's a thought to ponder, as you roam through the store:
"Give a man a fish and he will eat for a day. Teach him how to fish, and he will sit in a boat and drink beer all day".
Much love from Sunny Florida~:beach:

Welcome Jupiter

Wow.. I can't count how many times I have been where you are right now.

Some people have offered some excellent advice. I hope you give it a try to get out of the house. Even if it is for only a half hour. Maybe you can rent a movie that you and your daughter can watch together while you are nursing yourself back to recovery.

Keep posting we love to hear how you are doing.

All the best. :l

:welcome: Jupiter
Some good advice here already.
So lets get this show on the road.
Do what has been shared with you for today. My kids are grown and I've got to tell you I wouldn't miss even one day of their growing up!

This is my first time posting. I am 24 years old, and my drinking has gotten out of hand, I am so depressed and scared right now. I can’t believe what am awful person I am. I have no one to talk to.
I crave alcohol, and once I start I can’t – and don’t stop. I am afraid. I don’t know what I’m more scared of alcohol killing me, or not drinking. I could really use a friend because I have managed to alienate most of the people in my life.

Jupiter, hi and welcome....

Well done on the AF, you just need to be strong and positive, try to build on it..... Good luck!!

Down2earth, welcome to you to.... You don't know it yet, but you already have lots of friends on here..... Looking forward to reading your posts.

to both of the newbies from a very recent newbie. this place really is supportive. I was skeptical at first, but it is so nice to be able to run out here and type and get feeback from people are are struggling and want to be better. this is a great place to take refuge. stay tuned.

keep your hands busy by typing instead of holding beverages. it does seem to help a bit.

Thank you for the support, I feel so alone right now, and every time I think about the embarrassment I’ve put myself through, I start crying. I just keep thinking to myself, How can I get through this?! How can I ever face anyone ever again?! How can I sleep at night?

You are not alone. It just feels that way. And your true friends will be there for you. You will get through this. At least that is what I keep telling myself. We have to find a way, cause I dont want to stay where I am. And the only way to move away from where we are is to find a way out of the hole. We won't get anywhere if we stand still in fear. It is so hard, but somehow I am going to make things better. And so can you.

Down 2 Earth.... Welcome. If you are new to this site, I wondered if you've figured out the navigation yet~ if you click on someone's name, a drop down menu will give you several choices. If you have time, please find "Chief", and read his posts. He is an inspiring voice here that has helped so many of us forgive ourselves.

You've done the hardest part~ you've admitted to yourself that you need to address your drinking habits. Now comes another hard task- learning to forgive yourself.

Stay around, we are here for each other. :heart:
