        I’ve have struggles sleeping and almost every night I drink wine so I can sleep.  I work long hours and I’m a stressful environment at the hospital.  I feel tired but the only way I get any rest is if I drink enough to pass out.  It’s getting worse all the time.

        i want to stop but it has a hold on me.  Does anyone else deal with this.

          I do the same thing every night and now wake up with the sweats.  I know I need to stop but I keep going to the store and buy more wine and start all over.  I need help I know.  Maybe we can talk and get help together or support each other.

            I too did this for a long time, eventually it led to terrible anxiety. I decided I couldn’t do it anymore and I stopped drinking I needed support through it. I attended AA and did group 12 Step program through Sister Smith and got a sponsor. My pride prevented me from reaching out for help for many years. My humble advice is ask for help, drinking is progressive it only gets worse. You are not alone, there are many out there that will help you through when you decide it’s time for change. I’ve not had a drink in over 6 years and this was something, I truly did not believe possible that I could stop!

            Sending you good caring thoughts and hope for your recovery. ♥️

              Thank you, It’s so nice of you and I’m grateful for this response.  I don’t know when I’ll be ready but I know I have to find something he strength as my anxiety is getting worse.  I guess that is a common side effect that I wasn’t sure felt by other.  Thank you so much ❤️
