Looking to help an alcoholic!

Hi everyone! Hope your all having a great weekend. I've only met 1 alcoholic to help and she's a great person. Love talking with her. Is there anyone else struggling with alcohol or drug addiction??? I've been thru so much with getting sober so I can understand how someone feels getting sober. I just really want to help anybody that is struggling. I don't mean to always talk about it but if I can help someone with getting clean then its worth mentioning again. If you want talk privately that's even better cause anonymity is important and it can be beneficial if embarrassed about it. There's nothing to be embarrassed about it cause its a disease and nothing to be ashamed of. Its a hard and tough disease to deal with and only another alcoholic can really understand what your going thru!! With that PLEASE contact me anytime if your struggling with this cause I'm always available to help!! YOUR NOT ALONE!! I hope you all Have a beautiful weekend everyone😀💝🙏

Hi lovedogs.

I hope you are doing ok, still getting out and about I hope 😊 I’m not too bad , it’s a 3 day weekend here in uk, not sure what I’m doing as yet. See how I feel I guess.

Just wanted to say, it’s so good that you can offer help to those suffering or have suffered from alcoholism. Is a terrible sickness , and it’s so nice for people to be able to chat to someone who understands and has experienced it.

You are such a lovely kind person.

My uncle is one of the sadly many alcoholics. He's been sober for months now but there's this saying, "One An Alcoholic, Always An Alcoholic" it's sad i mean, I don't know how a normal childhood with my uncle feels like. I mean, it's hard.

Oxycontin??? I hope you can stop them but if its for pain then yea take them. Yes once an alcoholic always alcoholic but getting sober helps with not acting like a drunk. Lol. Yea being around drunks is very difficult. Hoping he can stay sober cause it does get better!!!

I’ve been struggling with substance abuse for about 2 years now. I’ve taken it down from 7 days a week to two week periods and the 4 day binges. I haven’t drank since Thursday and it kicked my ass. Anxiety was full blow and haven’t been able to rest. Would love someone to talk to on the regular about the struggles. Feel very alone a lot of the time.

Alcohol is a very lonely disease as you know! I always said I feel fine....fucked up, insecure, neurotic and emotional. FINE....lol.. Its pretty true tho.

Is alcohol your main choice? Mine was too. I smoked, snorted and shot up coke and meth too. Still never made me happy. It did the first few times but after that it didn't do much. Do you use any drugs?
