Well after 9 months of not smoking cigarettes I got drunk at a baseball game on Tuesday and smoked a half pack of cigarettes. I haven't had one since and don't plan on having more.

So that puts me at day 4. Oh well.

Always here to help. Don't hesitate to PM me.

One week since I've consumed any alcohol. I'm feeling pretty good about myself today. The 7 days I've managed to avoid alcohol is the longest since late June/early July when I did like 10, but after that I relapsed pretty hard, and up until now the best I could do was 2 days, so at least I've proven I'm not too far gone that I can't take a break for a little while.

Honestly a week of sobriety feels better than a week binge ever will. I have a clear head and it's way easier to think and concentrate right now than it was when I was drunk all the time.

I thought that partying all the time would make me feel better, but in the end it only makes shit worse. The truth is you can't live a happy and productive life when you have an addiction. Whether it's alcohol or any other drug.
I'm just hoping I can put this chapter of life behind me, and get out of this lifestyle while I'm still young.

But yeah, after all these consecutive months of heavy drinking every day, I'm actually very proud that I was able to put a stop to it for a week. The first few days were difficult for sure, but it's definitely been worth it. I'm ready to get my life back on the right path.

Day 2 sober, but as for the week overall I've done pretty well. Was buzzed one day earlier in the week, but far from drunk.

But anyway I've made the decision that either I get it together this time around, or I'm going to fucking rehab.

Life seems scary without alcohol, but all the times I've been like "I'll drink x amount of times per week, or per month" it just never works out and I always relapse.

Another thing about alcohol is over the past several months I've fucked with shit I otherwise wouldn't sober ( coke, meth, adderall and other pills ).
I got all paranoid last week when I was on both booze and speed pretty heavy. An example of this was, my cousin who I grew up with like a brother said he came accross a pipe one time when he was hanging out with me months prior ( prolly not the best thing to bring up out of the blue) and asked if I was ok.
I got all pissed thinking he was running his mouth to people about it, and I came close to doing something I know I would've regretted.
Thankfully the issue is resolved now.

My point is I've fucking hated who I've become. While under the influence lately I've been extremely mean, or depressed or both. And that's not me.

Shit has gotten progressively worse over the past 3 years as I've lost 2 people who meant the world to me. But I know they wouldn't want to see me killing myself with all the substances I'm putting into my body.

It's been a while since I've been optimistic, but I know I can overcome this. I was always an A&B honor role student in school, and I have the ability to do so much more with my life than be a low life drunk.

I've been thinking a lot about this;I think it's time to just quit drinking for good.
#1 My liver will be fucked by the time I'm 25-30 if I keep this up
#2 I feel like a happier person sober, and I get way more accomplished

This will probably be the hardest thing I've ever done, but I'm feeling good today and I know I'll be glad I made this decision. I'm so sick of the partying lifestyle

No drugs for 17 days now. Swore I would quit completely after a week of heavy XTC/MDMA/Ketamine use

Someone told me to update my signature, but I can't be bothered so I am just gonna put a link to my youtube channel here:

Itís been tough as fuck though. Mounting depression and Iíve been tense and shaking like crazy with my nerves all over the place

Sure isnít easy. But Iím still trying my absolute best.

So just a question, is everyone here following a medical stratagem on how to deal with substance addiction?

Or are you all self-recovering by trying to go cold turkey from whatever you are addicted too based on your own methods?

Because I really do think professional and medically guided therapy should be consulted. Withdrawals can be a very serious thing, and supervision is necessary sometimes.

Back to day one. Relapsed hard on booze, and on top of that did a ton of speed.

I feel so ashamed. It feels like itís never ending.
I got way too stupid, and combined with all the stuff I did I can feel my heart pounding, cold sweats and shakiness.

Gonna drink a bunch of water and take a hot shower and hopefully feel a little better.

Iím so sorry everyone. I canít believe how hard this is. I really wish I could feel content sober
