Firstly, I'm not technically addicted to anything. I just abuse drugs and alcohol. There is a difference. At least according to the DSM and the therapists.
Secondly. I am drinking right now even though I don't really want to drink. There are times when I hate the taste of alcohol and loathe drinking it, yet I still drink it. Think of it as medication. It will be good for you. etc. etc.
Thirdly. There was no point to this post. I'm just in a really mad space. #Rage.
(Fyi: I am safe and quietly have a few drinks in the sun and trying to relax and then will walk for 2 hours along the beach to calm myself).
Also, all the threads in this section seem to be about avoiding drugs and alcohol. I wanted to create a thread where it was just OK to be drunk/high/whatever. Sometimes quitting isn't a priority. I do think there are times when drinking is justified. (I.e. right now).
