Stop Drinking
One Day at a Time

"A few drinks with my mates is ok"

Tony’s story might sound familiar…

“I work hard all day and I look forward to having a drink with my mates in the evenings. Sometimes I forget myself and end up having too many.  Last week I got stopped at an RBT and blew over the top – the 2nd time this year. I know if I lose my license, I won’t be able to work. I know I have to stop drinking but I can’t. Am I an alcoholic?”

"I never thought it would be a problem"

Katie called us because she couldn’t cope.

“The kids drive me crazy, especially when they first come home from school. A glass of wine helps me cope but now I realise I can’t stop at one and I have to do it every day otherwise I will go mad.  Sometimes I even buy wine instead of food. How do I stop myself reaching for the bottle when the kids are stressing me out?”

Personal Stories

“I felt I was going mad!”

I was a square peg in a round hole. I felt like I came from outer space. I picked up a drink at the age of twelve, after my two sisters had their wedding receptions in our home. I left school at fourteen-and-a-half to work with my father as a bricklayer. The money was good. But I was not cut out for it. I would have liked to be an artist and paint people and landscapes.    Read More

“I started at ten”

When I was ten years of age, I was given a glass of whisky and drank it straight down. It burnt and took my breath. Throughout my drinking years I did not touch whisky again. At sixteen, I had my first experience of getting drunk.  Read More

“I had to learn the first step”

By the end of my drinking at age 32 I didn’t look too bad – at least on the outside. I had a lovely wife and two kids, we owned a nice house and I drove a nice car.

But on the inside I was a complete mess. I was unable to hold down a job and even getting casual work was increasingly difficult.  Read More
