I know there used to be the dependant drinkers thread (not seen it for months) but I wondered if there was a thread where people with all addictions could safely share? Alcoholism, EDs, narcotics, etc etc
i dont think we have 'met' before, my friends without kids know all about what i am like as do my work friends. whats worrying me is i dont know how much longer i can carry on, but i really enjoy what i do iyswim. im all most certain when i snap at kids its down to my problem and i dont want my kids (when they are older) to be like, ahhhh so thats why mum used to go like that. is there anyone that can support you when your struggling?
no have not discussed it with anyone ''offical'' my problem started when i got into raving and the club scene, im not physically dependent but am emotionally dpendent and life is harder for me if i dont have it, sometimes i go a week without but that is only because there is a drought!! i will have to seek support at some point but at the moment i really dont want to give it up, i prob be a groups worst nightmare.
Hello, I go to narcotics anonymous, and it has saved my life and give me back a degree of sanity. I am now almost 8 months off alcohol and chemicals. I'd recommend the meetings (NA, AA etc)to anyone- It's worth a try if you are struggling and want to talk with other people who know what it feels like. I'm now 17 weeks pregnant and coping miles better than ever before. Still go to meetings though, they help me keep it together. Good luck and I hope it eases for you soon.
