      I for one don't drink to bury my feels, i do it cause it's fun

      This is how I did it. I quit in August by simply having no alcohol in the house.

      I would buy a 1.75L bottle of gin every 4-5 days, now I haven't bought anything in around 30 days

      1.75 L of gin? where the fuck do you get that?

      I told myself I could stop whenever I wanted (I couldn't). I hated myself for it,and since I hate myself I might as well have another drinky-poo, I'll stop tomorrow I promise

      This all changed when I had massive food poisoning (never undercook prawns, jfc), I could barely keep anything down for 3 days. By the end of it I could just about stomach toast. I went to bed and realised it was the first time in years I was doing it sober.

      I took advantage of that surge of disgust & poured ally beer / liquor down the drain. the first week was rough it haven't looked back since.

      Stop buying alcohol.

      You CANNOT cold turkey quit alcohol, IT WILL kill you.

      Get to AA or at least do what I did and call them to calculate how much you need to cut down every 3 days. Take 10% off your daily consumption, if you start to feel overtly nervous from this and agitated try cutting it down to 5%, it can take months of dedication but don't give up on it lad and you'll get there.

        This is accurate. If you really are an alcoholic(ie everyday drinking) withdrawls can kill you. You need to cut down slowly to avoid it. Talk to a doc first maybe.

    This is coming from an anon with alcoholics on both sides of the family, I get it bro. I love alcohol, if its in the fridge I will drink it and there have been days when I start drinking and choose not to eat because I’m fucked. Went 6 months without drinking just to prove to myself I could and its completely changed how I view my drinking, I don’t need the beer after work, I can say no.
    The truth is op that you have to actually look at why you are drinking, and you have to look at the fact that this thing that makes you feel good and that you ‘need’ is controlling you. Its addiction yes, but it is also habit. Its the cycle of your life, and understanding the patterns that make it continue is the key to breaking these patterns. The thing that made it easier for me was knowing that I could just go down to the pub and get a beer whenever I wanted, I could go and get fucked up, I could go on a three day bender if I wanted, but that specifically because I wasn’t doing that I was going alright.
    God bless op. Good luck its easier than you think

    I started by buying packs of sparkling water, and took the habit of always having a bottle near me to drink from. It doesn't look like much, but it really helped me resist that impulse of buying that pack of beer or bottle of wine from the grocery on my way while coming back from work.
    No more "damn I could really do with a drink", i'd just guzzle water from my bottle and just move past the store. I also found out it massively helped me with my hydration, I realized that aside coffee from work, I used to just drink liters of beers and nothing else during the day.

    I do sometimes miss the buzz, especially when I'm bored with nothing to do at home, but just thinking about the piece of shit it made me into makes me rage now

    i was a huge alcoholic, then my ex partially dumped me for that and i have been too traumatized to drink again

  13. 5 months ago
    Anonymous

    I've been sober for 2 years now. I haven't been completely clean for the entire time, breaking every 4-5 months. After my fourth relapse I gave up and decided to live as shit as possible, buying whatever I wanted, lazing around and being drunk, doing nothing and being a useless NEET. It didn't make me feel any happier, in fact I felt worse because my life was clearly going downhill. I am back to being sober and trying to become a functional person again. The last time I have drank this year was on 12th July.

    I am on this board now because I realised that working out is a great way to stay sober. I don't want to fuck up my gains or get fat again. I've gained 5kg since my alcohol binge from the beginning of this year and I have managed to turn 2kg of that into muscle. It feels good.

    But okay, how I stopped drinking was just trying it out for a month. You know those 'I can stop anytime types'? I thought I was that, so I tried it, and I couldn't. It was only for a month that I needed to be clean. But by the end of it I realised that I don't need alcohol at all and should keep staying clean. It is harder to quit when you tell yourself 'no more forever'. Start with a small time frame first. When you are sober, you will come to realise that you have a lot of things not in order because of your drinking, problems you were avoiding because you were drinking and problems that caused you to drink. For me it was anxiety, stress and boredom. Each time I went recovered from a relapse, I would try to fix these issues. It didn't work out because I would relapse again. But this time, I think I have found it. Working out is great for relieving stress and getting better sleep.

    My life isn't perfect now, but it's much better. I shower and clean, I have a flexible low paying job and I learned how to cook, I started tracking my money again.

    I don't know if I will break again in 2 months, I really hope not. But no matter what happens, I will keep going or die trying

    Godspeed anon

      The one thing I took away from this book is that no matter what alcohol is not going to net you a benefit. You will always be worse off in the long run for each drink you have. So if you can decide to sacrifice some dopamine now out of love for your future self you might be okay

    I'll tell you how I am preventing myself from becoming an alcoholic
    1) don't get fat. your tolerance will increase if you do
    2) tell yourself that drinking without doing something special is a waste of money. i don't know how to phrase this better, but you should have a good enough time to justify spending howevee much money you did on that booze
    3) get absolutely plastered when you drink. don't just have a few beers, have 6 and a bottle of wine. You will get a hangover and for the next 2 days the idea of drinking alcohol will be repulsive to you
    4) don't drink as above more than once a week. you are going to need your liver working properly until you die

        I take Naltrexone when I drink and feel absolutely no side effects. Other than it mildly increases the physical sides (not mental) of drinking, and not in a pleasant way.

        I 100% recommend getting a Nalt rx to anybody struggling with booze. Even if you never actually take it, it's a great safety net to have just in case. Keep the bottle around and pop one if you're struggling.

        Yes, in an ideal world you would just have perfect self-discipline and quit drinking using sheer force of will. I'm not that strong. Plus, I like being able to occasionally drink socially without going off the deep end.

        Cutting alcohol by 98% gave me my life back. Now I take Naltrexone maybe once a month when I have one beer or glass of wine socially. It's great.

            Shut the fuck up. I have no idea why people on here have such a problem with Naltrexone. It's a cheap, generic and well-studied drug, it helped me break a 10+ year binge drinking habit almost effortlessly. The pill is not a magic bullet. I had to make lifestyle changes and change my social circles, see a therapist, etc.. But it really helped my recovery and I would have had a much harder time without it.

            I'm recommending something that could really help someone who is struggling. Don't be such a cunt.

    4.5 years sober here. At my worst was going through 2 half gallons of vodka every 3 days. Took me 3 hospital trips and 5 relapses to stop. I'll keep this short and sweet

    If you really have a problem, go to rehab. You'll get 30 days under your belt and a good introduction to sobriety. Get a sponsor and go to 90 meetings in 90 days.

    If you don't really think your problem is bad enough to go to rehab

    I was drinking mouthwash by the end, trying to hide it. If I didn't it was time for silent hlll.
    Trust on the Lord Jesus and you will be saved. I really, genuinely could not have broken the cycle without Him.
    Read the New Testament and believe it. Go to a Gospel teaching church and through that get involved in a small group of other men with issues like this, or even just focused on being an upright, Christian male.
    If you're bad like I was and waking up at 4am to shake till the stores open at 7, you'll probably need to allow yourself to slip into moderate withdrawal with a pulse over 110 and shaking, but not really bad yet, and go to the white area ER.

    They will get you to where you won't die and can begin. Read Pilgrims Progress, the modernized version.
