I drank yesterday, please read whole story

I drank nearly a whole bottle of red wine yesterday.

It was 13.5 percent alcohol.

I drank it pretty fast too.

Fortunately I didn’t go psychotic from it

At least not, this time…

Anyway.

It wasn’t worth it.

I started to feel dizzy.

And threw up so so so much…

And its now the evening of the next day and I still feel bad

Yea, alcohol is not for me.

This is recovery oriented as I am saying that I don’t like alcohol anymore.

Hope it’s not illegal on this forum :stuck_out_tongue:

I am glad you had a negative reaction to the wine. Drinking is no good. :pig::pig::pig:

I haven’t had a drop of alcohol since 2004. My doctor told me not to mix it with my meds and I never have. I’ve smoked pot a few times and regretted it. With this disorder I’ve decided it’s best to just remain clean and sober.

Edit: On a few rare occasions I have had a “non-alcoholic” beer that say they have less than 0.5% alcohol which is essentially nothing, never had a negative reaction.

I’ve slipped in the past too. Best thing to do is pick yourself up, dust off, and try to stay sober.

It happens, and you seem to have learned something. That’s the important part, learning from mistake.

Imagine repeating that every day. That’s the end game of alcoholism.

I got close, back in the day. I was so bad I would wake up in the middle of the night with shakes, had to down a gulp or two of whatever I had been drinking just to get back to sleep.

I was killing myself with the bottle. Bout a liter a day of the stuff. Gin mostly. I’m sure I had alcohol poisoning a few times.

Trust me @LittleMissSlothy, the bottle holds nothing good.

Just make it a one time thing. You shouldn’t have done it and you paid the price.

i feel i am giving too much control to the alcohol.

it must go

alcohol is a toxin to every single organ of the body

i can’t call it moderation cos there are so many toxins going in my body already from other sources

so it is not really moderation…,

I’ve fell off the wagon here and there. One thing that has helped me is to find a positive activity to distract yourself from the need to drink.

I understand your story well and it’s good to read this stuff on the forum. Sometimes we all need reminders about the reality of alcohol.

yea that is the thing i feel like it will relax me, but the reality of alcohol intoxicated sessions is that they are not really reality ,…if you get my drift…alcohol chemically changes my perspective to something that is not truly me

glad to be of a helpful reminder :smiley:
