How and Why I Quit Drinking for Good

July 31, 2019

I quit drinking from 2007-2010 as a process. My cousin was pointing out my dysfunctional behavior while on alcohol. I get girly, I get way too compliant, and I’m easily manipulated. This is why I realized that somebody with diabetes should not drink, period. I quit drinking. I’m an alcoholic with rapid cycling bipolar. Of course, I shouldn’t drink, what was I thinking when I turned 18 in 2000. I was thinking with messed up judgment because I was not on proper mediation, without seeing a proper psychiatrist, let alone having a proper diagnosis.

Here I was walking around drunk off my ass without anybody saying, gee drinking is bad for you. My family was treating me great while I was drinking. Then when I stopped, I was mistreated, and not taken seriously as an adult at all. Narcissistic parents resent the growth of their children. They get used to their child one way, then a change happens which makes them confused. I stopped drinking because I recognized it was bad for me, in particular my schizophrenia-ridden concentration issues. Drinking is just plain bad for you. It doesn’t help you at all. I quit drinking and I’m glad I stopped.

      Thank you. I try. My family is not so honest with themselves and are still engaged in bad habits. Me on the other hand, I try to do my part by staying 9 years sober.
