If alcohol is a crutch then you need to relearn to walk on your own feet again, I have seen the devastation it has caused to some of my friends and family over the years.
I heard a great quote for an alcoholic once, they said:
"Alcohol is a devious fucker, first it's your best friend, then it's your only friend and then it becomes your worst enemy"
That always stuck with me.
but every two weeks when they go to thier mums i have been going through about three bottle in two days plus beers , which is kinda like a part time alcoholic, but it fucks me up for almost a week after sleeping and fot getting on with stuff .
and if i go out i always get hammered lately i can drink all what i said and not get drunk at all .
that and it makes me put on weight because that week being fucked up I'm not focused and i eat shitloads,
so while im not dependent on it , i have been reguraly binge drinking every year from around end of November to july the next year and i have put weight on again and haven't achieved as much as i could have done in that time , so in fact even though i don't do it everyday , i feel it is still affecting my life .
but the when faced with the idea giving it up forever i have that feeling of , how can i go around people when there like go on have a drink go on ?? its really annoying and consistent from a lot of people .
So yeah im ready im doing it . But maybe ill take fake beers and lie to people for a little while lol i dont know ,
but yeah ill lose the weight and stay off the booze this year and I reckon ill finally bang that ep out .
i just wanted to see if any of you lot gave up drink and how you deal with family and friends attitudes towards you like ,
go on just have one or two wont hurt you , MATE I CANt have one or two , i drink until i pass out and that always happens if i drink . So yeah time up
