Had an issue with alcohol as well. One day got into fitness and that saved my life. Eventually started competing, placed in the top 5 in my first show and the rest is history. I am very proud of doing the right thing with my health. Focusing on fitness keeps me straight because since I love going to the gym so much, I know I can't drink in excess or my performance the next day will suffer. So if I'm getting ready for a show I do not drink during contest prep and if its the offseason I limit my drinking to a couple times a month in moderation. For example a nice dinner out with some good red wine.
I'm glad I didn't need professional help to quit my bad drinking habits. Good luck to you and stay strong.

Addicts can become addicted to many things, not all of them are detrimental.
My coke and alcohol addiction nearly destroyed me and those around me.
I work in sales and am addicted to the endorphin release that comes from making a sale. That has given me a great income and the means to support my family in ways many aren’t fortunate too. I’m completely addicted to training and the chemical release from that, it’s going to probably add years to my life but crucially it will massively improve my quality of life as I get older. Now both those examples involve very similar chemical reactions in the brain as coke and e but no one would say it’s a bad thing.
In my opinion it’s not the addictive nature of the relationship you have with anything, it’s the ability of that thing to harm you......
I drink a lot of coffee (min 800mg caffeine a day, normally more) - honestly don’t believe I have any issues from it.

Yeah. I understand. I have a few drinks since the original post but nothing like before. I'm telling you this kudzu root just doesn't make me feel like drinking. I used to get the slightest urge and I would just say **** it, then go have a drink. Now it really doesn't pay me mind when it comes to thought.

Whats ironic is that if a person is a former cocaine abuser and takes in enough caffeine it can trigger something in their brain which gives them a false high of being on blow. They can experience the same side effects they used to get when they were on cocaine. Not as much but still enough to notice and feel different. Thats why they are all addicted to caffeine now.

Even chocolate has been linked to chemical reactions and the provision of a ‘high’, but there’s levels, you can’t compare caffeine to coke imo.....
