Can it be again?

I used to be a moderate drinker, then pot drug testing at my job made alchohol my only escape. So I drank more. Drank often. Now the booze is a problem. But I remember pot being a "take it or leave it" thing. I want to curb my drinking, cause I can see it is getting a little out of control.

Is a little harmless weed the alternative to a pint of 100 proof a day? I think it can be. And if so, am I wrong to want to use this stuff to not be an alcoholic? Seriously, I never "craved" alcohol until I was left with it being my "only" allowed drug to use. Now I'm concerned for me, because I crave alchohol and wish I didn't. I wish I could just smoke some herb and be fine again.

The booze is killing me. I can feel it. I must stop drinking. But the only alternative I see is some smoke. Why are smokers treated like some kind of "Reaper Madness" crack heads? It isn't true. We need balence. We can balence ourselves without expensive medicare plans and health insureance bills with a closet home garden. Little expense. SO why can't I do this without breaking the law and endangering my family? WTF?

I remember alcohol being a "take it or leave it" thing.

Curse these laws that have dictated what I can and cannot do. They poisoned me. I am halfway to believing it is by design to make me less than what I could be.

I HATE booze. But I need it. Without it I grind my teeth and sleep only 2 hours a night to wake tired and wanting. I hate this need for booze. WTF, Nobody talks about this stuff when talking about the dangers of booze. But there it is. Everyone dealing with it knows what I'm talking about.

The grinding teeth, sleepless nights, constant cravings, the sense of willingly wanting to poison yourself with more, and MORE, AND MORE!!!. For what? To wake up unsatisfied and wanting more yet? What a lousy drug. But that is the truth of it.

Sure, most poeple will say, "I drink to change who I am..." Bullshit....You drink cause you can't help yourself. You are a loser, winner, rockstar, whether you drink or not. And that is the BIG lie. You/all of us, drink because we need to drink. Otherwise, we don't sleep well. We shake and tremble in public. We forget what we are doing. We forget stupid crap. We are ADDICTS.

But a little smoke goes a long way to curb the need to drink.BUT THAT IS ILLEGALE!!!! IT IS WRONG!!!!

Where is the justice in this?

booze is a horrible poison you are putting into your body on a daily basis. Please give weed a try! I think it might help you with your alcohol addiction.

I know there are a few good folks that post here.

There are more tools than "good folks".

Hell, the tools run the site. Tools, beget, tools.

I accept the ban. I'm not a stranger to it.

But seriously, I expected more response from a HUGE website like this.

Don't bother being a Troll at this point. The Mods will take care of it. They will track my IP and determine I'm on the "Bad list" and do an auto-ban.

See you all again in 6 months.

Do you think you may be medicating yourself?

Medicating myself? I dare say "Yes". But that is the point. I want to stop medicating myself with alchohol. And eventualy stop the Nicotine addiction too.

If you haven't experienced quiting this stuff once you have a definite addiction, then you don't understand what it is like.

It's to late for me to continue the discussion. I have to go to sleep and do real living tomorrow.

I need to sleep and wake to the real world in the morning. I have expectations, work, and real life things that need done. And I will do these things. Wanting to stop drinking does not mean that I am a helpless basket case. I am functional. I just know that I could be MORE functional without the handicap of needing alcohol every evening.

A great thread that I have found VERY helpful...

[link to www.cracked.com]

Also, start a journal, essentially talking with yourself about how you feel about alcohol. Why you want it, why you hate it. How you justify giving it to it.... You may be surprised how you 'hear' yourself talk about it, and maybe help yourself to find strength to stop.

Good luck.
