    The cravings are driving me insane. Doesn't help that I dream of using. Ran out of alcohol and don't have the money to buy more. Double whammie unfortunately. Any idle time my mind has, which is damn near all the time, I think about using. I just want a taste. I can only smoke so many cigs to take the edge off a bit.

    Of course It doesnt help any that Im depressed. But now I have no way of dealing with it and its really pissing me off. Not to mention my temper is very short.

    What do I do? Any advice? I know it wont be long before I snap

    I couldn't resist the urge to use again. Gave in late last night.

    I use multiple substances unfortunately and I drink when Im out of drugs or to enhance the high.

    I know I gotta stop. But how else can I forget my past and the now

    My therapist always says : live the emotion and do not cover it.

    He is right, but god it is hard sometime.

    I am now using lorazepam to stop my alcohol craving.

    And when the stress is too high, I take my metal binder clips and pinch my body. That pain is strong enough to calm me down.
