Alcohol addiction

  1. NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming)

    I am currently doing a Diploma on NLP, and am an NLP Practitioner so thought i'd write this. NLP was developed by academics such as Dr Richard Bandler and Dr John Grindler in California, America. This was largely a result of Psychotherapists/Counsellors using CBT and REBT and sometimes not having much success. The key thing with NLP is that it does not care about the past of a person, what went wrong, the negative. Instead it aims to replicate what the peak performers do in their...

  3. Recovery

    I have a few posts here and there, but I am now off the methadone and the alcohol. My blood results have improved. Take things in moderation. I'm not sure if i'm stupid but there seems to be confusion regarding detox and rehab. Detox is stopping the physical addiction but the rehab is the most important as it covers the emotion side of addiction of all substances, I am lucky to still be here. Guys always seek 999 (if in UK or 111 if not sure of emergancy) because at that final moment...
  4. Wrong Turn on the Road to Recovery

    Where to begin. I just read my last post, and I suppose maybe I should start there. When I returned home from treatment, the first week I couldn't take it and started back on the pills. But by the end of the week I threw them out and started over. My second week I ran into someone I had met in treatment when I went for a doctors appointment. The next day this guy I met in treatment, we will call him "Bill", stopped by. He is an alcoholic, and he had been drinking. Well, I'm sure you all know...
  5. Poxy pain, poxy doctors, poxy tolerance

    Never blogged before, never had fent before either so as long as a blog doesn't give me a fucking suicidal headache I'll give it a shot,maybe Its going to be useful to document my struggle with pain and now the addiction I have always avoided despite dancing with almost every substance known to man. Maybe it will help to remind me one of the reasons I have walked away from the most perfect woman on the planet as I refuse to drag her with me into this dark place, I'll come out but I know...
  6. So, Who's to Blame?

    I have taken awhile again to post, I have kept this in draft while examining my feelings. I have never, ever spoken of this in so public a place. I feel I must speak of it, however, because repressing it for so long has certainly not been of any benefit. I don't know that disclosing it will have positive result either, but at least I will have tried both. In an earlier blog entry, I believe I briefly mentioned I had been raped. Well, I was 13 when it happened. I was a virgin, on my...
  7. My Story - Part 2

    The following entry is completely theoretical and is an example of creating writing... Journal entry 26 - 31 My drinking carried on getting gradually worse and worse - i was slowly killing myself and i just couldn’t stop. i became a habitual "crier" i got used to sitting in my one room - in a shared house. Crying and swigging strong red wine straight out of the bottle. Whilst popping the occasional valium or zopiclone. I had an incredibly large amount of hate for myself. I began to self...

  9. Random Consumption

    EDIT: Post removed. This was stupidity at it's finest, even though it was alcohol induced it is no excuse for consuming random pills which you have little to no idea about. In fact, they were suspected Benzo's which makes it even more dangerous with alcohol, of which around 20 units was consumed in a 5-6 hour period. Little fishy has had a good telling off! Let this post serve as a warning...
  10. here's why getting loaded sucks

  11. Boozer's been drinking, once again...

    Gaahh... why can't they have anything good to drink close to where boozer lives. He needed to withdraw money to buy weed so he bought this thing called Trotters Sex on the beach. It's not a fucking sex on the beach, it's some kind of malt-filled suguary puke. Anyway, he finally manged to down it... after it was at room temperature (it stopped hurting boozer's stomach). Now he went back to his 60 oz of vodka... His stomach is much happier. He drinks it like it would be water :p. Today...
