    Not everyone drinks to escape or hide bro. But youíre right, if you want to sober up, then the excuses need to change to reasons to stay sober.

    BTW- Everyone has a vice
    and I agree with MILF King- not all drink to escape
    Although Inferi is retarded he is correct that excuses have to stop. No one but the individual going through alcohol addiction can change their life direction. This is very hard to do the longer you are in a pattern. Good luck OP.

    Remember that it is a simple choice between a life of endless possibilities or a life of endless consequences. Sobriety takes work and a solid commitment. Just get back to 90 in 90, don't drink between meetings, work with your sponsor, and get involved in a service commitment. Service is key for me to get out of my own head and involved in helping others. If you ever need any support PM me. 1-10-2006, that date means something to me because the only way I change is if that date stays the same.

    For many its even more as its a choice between life and death. They think they can keep drinking even though doctors tell them if they don't stop they will die. I have a very close relative in her early 40s that has been in the ER multiple times and admitted to the hospital for lengthy stays with life threatening issues due to her alcoholism and the addiction still controls her in the face of death. It is very sad but she is the only one that can help herself at this point.

    Don't know you but I'm proud of you. Addiction is a medical issue that our society has handled through the use of guilt and shame. Imagine if we handled the flue that way - shaming people and looking down on them for contracting it lol. Seriously though, a
    ddiction has been shown to rewire your brain and create certain neural connections that were not previously there. I'm not trying to give you an excuse, but this does not make you weak. Your brain has been rewired to prioritize certain behaviors (i.e. finding and consuming alcohol) and altered the choice component. Just like so many of us here will always get to the gym, regardless of the weather, traffic, lack of sleep, work, etc., its just become part of our routine. Addiction causes the brain to treat substance abuse in a similar way but even worse. Then there is the physical withdrawal symptoms. Bro, you should take pride in yourself for having quit drinking, and then after falling off, for getting right back up and willing to fight.
    Relapses are part of recovery, don't be too hard on yourself. That said, you do want to take it seriously which it sounds like you clearly are. Seeing as you've been dealing with this, you've likely heard this before, but bad habits are not actually eliminated, they are replaced. Staying busy is important. So is developing new, positive habits. Just as I said your brain is rewired by addiction, your brain can also be rewired again. A different behavior will stimulate your brain to react and synapses to fire. Over time, if this different behavior is continued, the brain will adjust to promote this other behavior. This is called neuroplasticity
    (I'm not a doctor or medical professional of any kind, I'm going off of research I've looked at, experts I've spoken to, and experiences of myself and others, please excuse my medical vocabulary, it's not exact). I don't mean to bombard you with all this scientific shit, you got this. Stay strong, stay busy, and remember to be grateful for all of your blessings. Keep your mind on what you can do, not what you can't do. best of luck.

    If there is anything I can do t help you out as you go through this, please do not hesitate to ask; just send me a PM, anytime.

    Yeah maybe to a point.... but he said Ďaddictioní

    which by all counts is different than choosing to not go out and get fucked up. Alcohol, being readily available and socially normal... can even cause death in DTs and life threatening withdrawals.

    ive never been an alcoholic per say, but nobody chooses to constantly fuck there own life up again and again unless there is a serious disorder... like being a cross dresser, itís a brain dysfunction. Canít just do what these weirdos do and say Ďitís ok, itís just you being youí. Lol

    I also think most of us here traded out a bad habit for training and knowing how our minds work, AAS.
    I know I am, at least.

    Everyone has an addiction. Iíd like to see some of you guys quit pussy. Or test. Or online shopping. Or whatever. We all have our short comings. Just bc your addiction is looking fit and someone elseís is getting blackout drunk. Or someone else is addicted to working and making money or spending money or whatever. We all far from perfect. I for one am proud of you man. You know what your problem is and your working on fixing it. I myself could probably use a little less drinking. And damn these women will be the death of me. But I love pussy. I love getting a buzz every now and again and I love working out and looking good In the mirror. Beat of luck to you bro. You can do it. And no one can stop you.

    Bud you definitely not alone as Iím an addict myself. Just admitting you have a problem and wanting to do the right things is more then most bud. Donít give up itís a fight worth fighting even if it beats you down sometimes.

    Thinking about being there for my kids and remembering their childhood and the things we have done together is the biggest motivator for me to get clean and or stay clean.

    I want to enjoy my kids and their childhood by making memories that I can think back on one day. I have a couple year period I was messing up bad and I canít recall any of the things my wife or kids tell me we did of the fun times we had. That sucks
