    Its eating me up inside

    Hey all, im back drinking again... trying to limit myself 2 3 beers a night. but i have had 3 major slip ups.

    I found out the other day i got into a arguement with my ex's mother. she was like my best friend. ive had a lot of problems with her daughter, she has bipolar and well has broken my heart.

    I found out i was abusive to her mum the other night when i was totally drunk and i mean totally. not eaten all day and drank over 30 Gin Martinis and a few beers in the time of a few hours. im not sure what happened i had one of my 'black outs'. i dont remember a thing. NOTHING.

    Its eating me up inside, im normally the kinest person you will meet. ill always go out of my way to help my ex and her family in anyway i can. and now this. what the hell is happeneing to me?

    I messaged her mum and she forgives me, but i do not forgive myself. She said i was a totally differnt person, and thinks its probally best we dont talk anymore..

    Im lost. Ive lost my job due to lack of work, i have nothing anymore. no girl no work no lience. i cant excape.
    only thing i have is Online Poker, drinking and smoking..

    Sorry i just had to try to get this off my chest.

    Karl, I hope that this doesn't sound harsh but you must stop feeling sorry for yourself. The only person that can make the changes is you. We can all be here and give you all the support that you need along the way but we can't wave a magic wand and make everything all right for you.
    Start by helping yourself. To see someone sorting themselves out is the best way you can help anyone here. You have done it before and you can do it again.
    I don't mean to be mean, I just want to see that you are OK
    So come on, get cracking and start looking after yourself!
    take care buddy. Keep posting.
    Startingover x

    yeah it doens't sound harsh, i know i have to stop feeling sorry for my self. its just hard. i have a srinks number, but cant be bothered to go. well a little scared about going. i dont normally tell people how im feeling except on here. so im not sure if i would just clam up in an appointment..

    Maybe i should just go to bed. come back on here tomorrow. and Grow up. call the srink, and man up to this shit thats going on in my head.. But i know tomorrow i wont fell the same way. sucks hey. i want help but only when i want it. only when im fragile. stupid i know.

    Thankyou starting over

    Why don't you write down everything you want to say to the doc? Might help and at least get things started?
    We all feel vulnerable at times Karl, don't be ashamed of that. You are asking for help and now you have to follow through so to speak.
    Stay close, you will get there, we all will if we help each other

    Karl, I know exactly what you mean. When we disgust ourselves with our behavior and feel like we're having a heartattack or stroke because of the hangover, we swear off everything. Doesn't work. Try to put everyone else in your life on the back burner 'til you figure some things out. No one else can fix you, and neither can you if you want to stay broken. We're here. I'll look for you tomorrow. P.S. giving up the poker may help you change your triggers.

    Hey!
    I'm sorry you're having it hard.
    I know what it's like to have a fight and remember nothing, although never as bad as you. I'm sooo sorry that life is so rough for you right now. I hope to god it starts to get better.
    I really hope you feel better soon and it stops eating you up.
    Stopping drinking/ controlling your drinking will really help that part of your life. We're all here for you and we all support you. Get whatever you want off you chest!!! Keep posting!!
    Big hug :l
    Good luck! Talk to you soon!

    Karl, first of all, come back here. Please post again.

    Second, on this forum, many of us fail. I'm afraid I failed. I did 7 days AF early in the month, and a few days in the middle. But my personal dialog with the insidious liquid is not to my favor.

    I'm going to try, tomorrow and I welcome your hand in joining me. It's a new day and I have new goals. From what I see, it's the only way out of the problems I built for myself. It's a mountain valley and there's two choices; lay down, or move forward.

    Please move forward with me. I'm hardly perfect, but I know the right direction.
