I didn't want to take this public. It seems as though I need the threat of public shaming and the good work of another cause to keep me going.
I'm just about able to limit my alcohol consumption, but haven't been able to get rid of it from my life - even for a short while. I'm not worried about not drinking in social situations - I could do that if I was in control of my personal time. I am held back by the casual evening drink at home. I tell myself 'I've earned this one', 'I have to try this new product for work' or 'I haven't had one in a few days' even though I've already reached and exceeded my healthy weekly quota.
I'm fully aware of the harm of alcohol. I know I am not my best when I drink. I try to be this super motivated, highly productive person, but am easily prone to depression and alcohol only gets in my way. But still, I let it into my life....
I hope this is the way to remedy my problem. I hope you will understand my plight - maybe you relate in someway? I'd really like to stop drinking and in aid of the excellent work of Druglink, I ask you to donate.
I have no intention of slipping up, but if I do, I will match any donations made and start again.
Druglinks work is important because it helps provide young people tools to avoid being in situations like mine - where they feel like they are not in control.
Please note - I am not comparing myself with others with serious issues. I'm just looking for some support with something I don't want in my life anymore.
Even if you can't donate, ask me how my alcohol consumption is going or how I'm doing, I'll be honest and knowing that you might ask me, may keep me straight.
