    I need help. I can't live with the shame. I'm so over making a show of myself.

    Hi Gilf and welcome. Most of us have been here before, i know i have been here for years and finally "got it". Like you i was over myself and hitting the repeat button daily but not knowing if i could get off the ferris wheel. Thanks to the support on here and knowing it was only "me" that could stop the madness, i am happily sober.

    The withdrawals suck, the not being able to drink sucks but at the end of the day living the way we did with al sucks more.

    I hope you stick around. As TT says head to the newbies nest, always someone to support you.

    Yep same shit different day. I found that being accountable on here was essential. no one understands your problems like a fellow drinker. Eat what you want in the first few weeks, sleep when you are tired and be gentle on yourself. I was just exhausted so when i came home from work i napped as i knew i would get overtired and stay awake. I accepted that my body needed to detox, i had done this to myself and had to accept the consequences. dont put yourself in situations that will make you crave a drink. I hibernated for 3+ months, i had to protect my quit at all costs.

    Rite now I'm just so physically sick I can't even sleep! I just pray that I actually get it this time. It's so exhausting hating urself all the time. Maybe feeling less isolated will help.

    Of course feeling less isolated will help! You are a normal human being who got addicted to a drug that addicts millions of people.

    Welcome to the club of normal....everyone here got sucked in too.

    There is NOTHING wrong with you, you are NOT broken .
    You simply got addicted to a drug that is highly addictive because you thought drugs would make you feel better.

    One way or another you will hopefully learn over time that you don't need to drink or drug to feel ok about yourself
