    Post Serious Drug & Alchohol Addiction with Mental Health Problems

    I have been suffering drug and alcohol addiction since i was about 12 years old. It has taken a serious toll on my overall appearance and more importantly my mental health. Being addicted to alcohol is probably one of the worst feelings that I can explain. I always have alcohol withdraw shakes and sweats if i dont have a drink for even an hour. All my family has left me because of my addiction and I go to AA meetings to try to meet girls that are going through the same physical and mental affects of my addiction but none of them want to be with me. They are afraid we are going to go out and start drinking or doing cocaine or both. I feel EXTREMELY alone and i would love someone to talk to just so i know that someone cares about me. Being a drug addict isn't a decision its a disease. Please if anyone wants to talk PM me or reply I am in South Florida. They say the first path to recovery is admitting that your a Drug Addict.. Well, this is my full admission that i am a serious alcoholic and major cocaine addict! Please help me!!!

    Charlie... You're in the right place

    Hey Man,

    I hear you. Loud and clear. Been where you're at, and it terrifies me to think of it.

    If i could give you a piece of advice. Don't get me wrong: I understand the isolation and lonliness of the dark. You're going through a lot, Man. They say it's easier to give advice than to take it, but I'm being REAL.

    Cut out the babes. You've got a lot on your plate, working through your issues. You sure as hell don't need somebody else's junk. And in the circles you're running in... NOBODY'S clean. Nobody.

    Ok, I hear you now. Yelling at the screen, saying you're so lonely - what about that pain. What about the need to be close to a body.

    Mutual support, and all that.

    So I say, get a dog. Seriously. Go to the pound and get an old gentle, trained dog. Not a pup, too much work.

    Your job ought to be to heal. Physically, then mentally. Realize that with all that history of self-destruction, you're not going to be better any time soon.

    One step forward, two steps back at first. Then if you keep on keeping on, suddenly, hardly without notice, you'll find that you're having more "good days" than "bad days", that you're waking up earlier in the morning, that your body is beginning to crave exercise and good food. All that stuff.

    Once you're on that road ... say, if you try for 21 days straight... then, you're ready to

    A miracle for charlie!!!!

    HEY, I AM FRIED! I just posted a long reply to you Charlie, but I wasn't quick enough, I guess. My fault entirely.

    Believe me, it was definitely something that you'd want to hear right now. I'm sorry.

    Look, I've got to get going, but I'll be here tomorrow asap and repost my comments as best I can. In the meantime, just know that you were heard. And Someone is going to be here for you. If not me, then another of these fine folks.

    Just hang on. You're among friends...

    Hey hood hope you're doing better and yea alcohol is the WORST detox...I got an older son that had to detox from heroin and it looked bad but alcohol is DEADLY so I'm super glad you went into a program to kick that one!

    I was like you also some years ago, where I thought AA was about FELLOWship right?! WRONG!

    First of all my exfiance, exboyfriend, and pretty much any of the exes I had that I met in AA are in prison. It's not about meeting them there tho I heard this great saying from a girl of mine in AA "it's fishing in a dirty pond!" LOL! It's more my PICKER was broken. AA or not I'd pick the best looking, crappiest losers...I didn't "stick with the winners", I led the loser pack and I certainly felt like that also inside!

    I had to stop going to recovery rooms to fall in love and start to go to love myself, take care of myself, and preserve my life which starts with preserving my sobriety. Does that make sense?

    I also found dating a non-addict was helpful. I can't ever be a non-addict, but I have a better chance of being an addict in recovery if I work a program of recovery and find love thru friends, positive social activities and groups, etc...

    Prayers for you!
