I'm starting to lose myself in this place. My anger is stating to overflow, my irritation is taking over, my appetite has gone and l don't think l've eaten in 3 days. I can't sleep well at night then l'm irritable in the day. L'm losing myself!

Things aren't improving much. I'm now controlling my urges to self harm by smoking more. I'm still drinking but that is now getting worse as l keep going AWOL when the staff let me out on my own, and this happened a few evenings ago and the duty manager went out looking for me. He claims l had drank 10 cans of cider and still had the empty cans on me. I've been caught smoking in my room recently and on both occasions l've remembered nothing. I'm still struggling with a lack of appetite.

Hate to hear you're struggling, but glad you checked in with us and let us know how you're doing.

Are you just forgetting things when you drink, or other times, as well?

Just when l’v been dinking in the evening. I think it may be down to my lack of appetite and drinking on an empty stomach..

I need to get my life back on the right traçk but keep tripping up. I feel at the moment that the management staff at the home are piling too much pressure on me to reduce my alcohol by dropping by one can every 5 days. I spoke to my alcohol advisor today and he said l should not feel bad about not being able to get down to 2 yet. He also said l should spend more time on each reduction of cans so my body has more time to adjust to each drop.

Recently, l have been really irritable, and haven' t even wanted ,people to talk to me in case I bite their head off. I have been mixing half a can of cider with coke. Today to try making my 3 cans today last longer and it did help.

Well, I'm encouraged, I know from the inside you may feel frustrated and discouraged, but from where I sit it sounds as if you're making real progress, and it's very heartening to those of us who have known you since you joined PF. No pressure, just sayin... :P But yes, it sounds as if you're no longer spinning your wheels with no traction- it sounds as if things are looking up. Stay strong! You can do this and I have faith in you.
