... 20 a day for about a year or more) cold turkey... went threw the hell of withdrawls.. im now at day 17 and feel pretty good physical - of course still some soreness but totally able to deal with it. anyway, last week i got very very depressed and sad and i figured it was part of the addiction - meaning i guess part of withdrawing. i took advice (very good advice) and i have gone to a few meetings.. in my area there are many aa meetings and hardly any na meetings. aa has been wonderful and so much support. my question is : i have never had a problem with alcohol just pain meds.. i drink occasionally but definately not for the same reasons that i took pills. i feel like a hypocrite because im going to aa and needing support for my pill addiction but in my heart i don't believe that it means that i have to stop drinking --- dont get me wrong if it was a problem then i would but really i don't think it is.. am i wrong? im i going to sabotage myself by drinking? can i not go and get what i get -- i want balance in my life. i truly don't want to be a fanatic about anything... please help i don't know what to think
many na programs use the same 12 step method as aa programs do so you are possibly getting the same guidance you would get if there was an na meeting available to you. even though you may not feel like you are addicted to alcohol you might be substituting one for another. I don't believe going to an aa meeting to seek out support and a venue to express yourself is wrong at all. the fact that you are addressing your problem and looking to stay sober says a lot in itself. not talking about it could cause you to relapse and if you are substituting alcohol for pills then you are in a place that may help prevent you from abusing alcohol and keep yourself in check. although if it is a possibility for you it might be wise to talk to a private therapist and get their input on the situation.
