Being Alcoholic

Alcohol addiction

Being Alcoholic- Ram (name changed) illustrates how his life became rusty after he started consuming alcohol. I used to be a good husband and a good dad earlier, but everything went wrong due to my alcohol addiction. If you ask anyone about me they would say “he is a nice & easy going guy”. Yes, now everything had changed right from my character, my attitude, my habits and of the most, my self-respect. Am embarrassed with me to behave like a fanatic with family, friends and relatives.

The Drowning Trap:

I started consuming alcohol when I was 20. It all started with peer pressure. Then I started consuming alcohol in social gatherings. Probably that was the duration when everything went wrong and gradually I began drowning in it. Suppose, if I had a time machine, positively I would have revisited the scene and changed that part of my life.

I started with 1 or 2 pegs a day and then it kept increasing. I kept finding reasons to take alcohol. I started drinking when I was happy, when I was sad and when I was angry. And that surely was the worst I did for myself and my family.

A couple of years later, I decided to quit alcohol and stop being alcoholic, but it just seemed impossible. The withdrawal symptoms were dreadful and scary.

Random Reasons to Drink:

Lately, I lost my job and started drinking the full day. Everyone I could trust, I started asking for money. “Need to pay school fees for kids”, “mother got sick”, “should pay job consultancy fees” and the list went on. If someone advised me to stop alcohol I would just disconnect with them and.  Eventually, I realized that my alcohol shattered me and my family.

But I have really thanked my stars for my wife Leela. She took most of the brunt of my alcoholism, and still stood with me like a pillar. She tried and so did I, but I  failed.  

Why Self-help won’t Work for an alcoholic:

I have heard and also believed that it was all about self-will. If I made up my mind it was possible. I tried several times, and I was able to change for a few days. But later my body would just give up. I would have nausea, vomiting, headache, shakiness, etc. Since it would get tough, I would give up. I desperately want to quit my addiction and lead a sober life. What should I do?

Reach for Solution:

Alcoholism is best treated with professional care and family support. We strongly recommend pharmacological intervention, psychotherapy and even rehabilitation. Cadabams offers evidenced-based therapeutic interventions. According to the severity of the individuals, the treatments method will be customized and treated by NIMHANS trained experts.
