Feel Terrible

I was completely wasted and have no idea why I made this horrible decision.  I am absolutely devastated over this!  I could have caused so much harm to so many people and I don't know how to make the situation right.  Have any of you done anything to... I don't know... make it up somehow?? 

I've already sworn off drinking... threw everything out of the house this morning. I will never, ever take another drink.  It's not even something I enjoy doing so it's not a problem to give it up completely to make sure this never happens again.

I've done it too many times to count. Good for you on quitting, that's what I'm doing as well. Made way to many bad choices under the influence. Inhibition out the door. Good luck.

We've all made bad decisions. Just know that the alcohol does impair your ability to make sane decisions. Quit beating yourself up, it will just lead to more quilt & resentment and that is no way to start a sober life.

Keep your heart open my friend. At least you realize now that drinking and driving will only lead to bad outcomes. What is done is in the past, just make sure you are there if anyone needs you and try to stay off the alcohol.

Best of luck to you in your quest to quit drinking. I'd be careful saying it's no problem though. I quit drinking about 30 times in my life before. I've been 2 1/2 years sober before and I went back...not trying to discourage you but just be strong and don't think that it's such a simple thing. It's easy to forget the horrible things down the road and decide to have "just one".

It is done with. Forgive yourself and thank whoever or whatever you believe in that the experience did not result in a different way. Now give yourself a break. Cheerio
