Always Craving Alcohol, but I Don’t Drink.?

Question by Kaylan: Always craving alcohol, but I don’t drink.?
I rarely drink, late time I did was about 8 months ago, I’ve had a glass rum and coke once and a bottle of Smirnoff 8 months ago, and a few sips of beer here and there but not the point to where I was drunk…

For the longest time I’ve been craving alcohol, and it’s so hard to avoid it, I don’t know how to get it because I’m underage, I know if I ask my sister she would say no, same with my parents, Why do I crave it? I’m scared that when I become legal, which isn’t that far away, 2 years I will be boozing it up every night. ;s

How to Deal With an Alcoholic: How Do I Deal With My Ex Husbands Horrible Mother?

Question by Jessica: How do I deal with my ex husbands horrible mother?
We are divorced, I personally do not want her to ever see my kids at all but I don’t know how to do this. First off she is an alcoholic, she bad mouths me to my children. She makes fun of my physical appearance and calls me a b**** among other things. My 7 year old came home once and started crying because she told him that I did not love him and that he was not aloud to call me mommy in her house that he had to call me by first name! WTF can I do about this? It makes me sick to my stomach .

P.S. My kids are 7 and 2

Support Groups for Alcoholics: Is It Appropriate to Attend an AA/NA Group When…?

Question by : Is it appropriate to attend an AA/NA group when…?
a person has never been addicted?

I am a counselor and i work with addicted youth. They go meetings every night – and my coworker wanted me to go to an AA meeting. I personally didnt want to go into the meeting, and when i was sitting in the meeting i felt incredibily uncomfortable…like “i was not allowed to be in there because i am not an alcoholic” (that was my thinking). The chair guy called on me, and I had NO IDEA of what to say! like everyone was expecting me to say “Im J and Im an alcoholic” but im not…never have.

Same thing with NA. I have never been addicted to drugs/alcohol. So…is it appropriate for me to attend these meetings – and if i am, and i do decide to sit in…how do i respond to people who call upon me to speak?

How to Help a Alcoholic: Stoner WITH “Alcoholic”?

Question by : Stoner WITH “Alcoholic”?
Hello Yahoo, I just have a simple question…I was wondering what the people of the Internet think of couples/relationships where one person prefers smoking weed and the other would rather consume 3 or more alcoholic beverages per night.. Do you believe a relationship between a stoner and an “alcoholic” would work? (When I say “alcoholic” I don’t mean a full blown addict, just someone who would rather drink than smoke weed). So, The most simple way to ask this is; Do you (the people of the internet) believe a heavy drinker and a pot smoker could have a serious relationship? Keep in mind that the pot smoker has no problem with drinking and the drinker has no issue with smoking weed…

Thank you very much

Alcoholics Self Help: Is He a Pervert? Should I Leave?

Question by Broken: Is he a pervert? Should I leave?
My live in bf (father if my son) has had a porn addiction problem since I met him almost 7 years ago. He swears he will stop & does for a while but a few months later I find it on his fone again. He has killed my self esteem & trust towards him. About 3 months ago he took it a step further & began to STARE at girls everywhere we go, I no longer enjoy going places with him anymore. His actions towards me have never changed. He still is affectionate & constantly tells me he loves me BUT a few months ago he stopped wanting sex for about 3-4 weeks.
2 weeks ago he expressed that he wanted to change & no longer hurt me so he attended a men’s church retreat & he seemed to have came back a changed man however for the past 3 days I feel he is fighting his urges. He’s beginning to look again at girls. Not heavily stare like before but he does look. What disturbs me the most is that these are really young teen girls he looks at & the porn he had been watching was also 18 year olds. He is 26 & I am 31. I feel disgusted & dnt want him touching me or around me after I see him looking at these girls. When I try to leave he cries & tells me he is working on it & asks me to please be patient & help him instead of fighting. I will admit it is not as bad as before. I really don’t know what to do anymore. He is a very good provider & excellent father plus I really do love him, I’m just tired of all this drama. Anyone seen a person like this ever changing?
