    i don't know why i'm posting this

    hi everyone - i am sitting here with an ice pack on my head because i'm so hung over. i've been drinking so much less since i found this site, and i think that i felt that as long as i paid close attention to my drinking i could control it. i know that sounds typical for a problem drinker, but i thought if i was really aware, you know REALLY, i could keep the overuse from happening. i guess not. i made an ass of myself last night, i realize (again) that i'm poisoning myself and my life. my knee is all torn up and throbbing, and i feel like i could live happily ever after without ever seeing a bar again. again i have nothing to say and i don't even know why i'm typing this. i just want to let you all know that i appreciate you taking the time to be here.

    Hey Freckles, I know how tough it is! I find it good just to put my feelings about drinking 'out there' sometimes because sharing how rough we feel with people that understand, actually makes us feel better (and accepted by people that have been there!)
    You are conscious about your drinking and that is a good place to start. So you had too much last night, its not the end of the world.
    Hope your knee gets better soon.

    thank you both for your understanding. it does feel a little better to put it out there to people who know. i woke up this morning and the first thing i said to my husband was 'i need to quit drinking' and his response was 'no, you just need to drink less'. ha. then he calls me later on the phone to see how i'm doing, and he casually asks me ' so why did you slap (insert male name here) last night?' i'm horrified because 1. i don't remember doing this and 2. i 'm a pacifist. and my husband doesn't think i have a problem. we know better!

    Hang in there Freckles. It is a painful thing. I'm glad you are finding a sense of humor in it all - that can save you sometimes.

    Maybe if you slapped hubby around, he would see the problem. :H I'm kidding, of course.

    thanks for all the support. i just want to update an item. according to hubby i landed a punch square on his jaw.(didn't slap him) he also deserved it (supposedly), but i don't know the details because i asked my husband to spare me. so at the end of the day, i've recovered some what physically and mentally, but i hope the lesson sticks this time. :happyheart: :happyheart:

    I can so relate

    Hi Freckles,

    I can so relate to your words. My husband is the same way. "Just drink less??" That is worse for me than drinking nothing at all. You can't just have one applies to alcohol as well as chips. LOL

    I can also relate to embarrassing the heck out of myself and then somehow by the sheer luck it all ends of being ok. We breathe a sigh of relief and start forgetting how bad this episode was. Then we drink ourselves into oblivion again and think "dam it, didn't I learn my lesson last time?"

    Our problem with alcohol will never change. The only think we can change is ourselves. I think the biggest thing that I got our of the cds was "This is not who I am anymore." I am so sure it is embedded in those discs somewhere.

    Don't get me wrong, I did topa and all the supps too, but this program will start to chip away at our terrible relationship with alcohol.

    I am not a believer in moderation, but that is because I have recently found out I am allergic to alcohol as well as addicted. So for those who are allergic, think highly about moderation.

    Anyway. This program saved my life and I am back for second try. I am doing campral this time around.

    Take Care,
    Nina

    thanks nina - i need to order those cd's. how do you know if you are allergic to alcohol?
    my dad tried campral but he stopped taking it because of sexual side effects:yuk: i think he's too old anyway and well that's all just gross to talk about, but do you like it so far? thanks again!
