Please if anyone has any advice or comforting words. I have recently gone through a traumatic experience that has led me down a path or drinking and feelings of despair. I'm scared that I won't be able to pull out of this even though I know that the worst part is over. I have two little kids that I have to live for but I cant stop drinking as it's the only thing that relaxes me and allows me to get any sleep or to eat anything. I feel as though I have panic attacks regularly. My heart pounds and I have a tingle throughout my body that doesn't feel good at all. Again, alcohol is the only thing that makes me feel better. I have a problem, I know. And i need help. But in the meantime if anyone has any ideas about how to get some sleep without drinking? Is there anything I can do? I feel quite helpless right now unless I am drinking. I feel physically terrible and I it is is taking a toll mentally on me as well. I need some sleep and to be able to eat a decent meal. Please someone if you have any advice I'd love to hear it.
