As I have been so open, largely because I was hungover to f**k, although I am glad I was, has anybody every tried kicking the booze permanently? That has to be the next step, any tips? I know different things work for different people and I'm game to anything from AA to EST and acronymics anonymous.


Greed has won, big finance has won. Whatever small role elite clubs still play in the local communities from which they grew is dwarfed now by their position as global brands.

I listen to more of Marr and his solo stuff these days anyway. I find The Smiths cathartic though.
 

 
 
Smiths music cheers me up when I'm feeling down.
 
Re giving up booze (on another post by you) it gives me something to look foward today when I receive bad news like today for instance.

Anytime pal, you have my number too. Because I have spent most of my life ignoring advice I should have taken I'm actually not bad at it or, ironically enough, listening. 

I'm the first to complain if anybody starts taking a football forum seriously and am, to quote the Barenaked Ladies, "the kind of guy who laughs at a funeral", but I am genuinely grateful to those who have shown me support on here. I have a long way to go but I finally realised a common factor that I mentioned above; quitting the booze. Not the easiest thing to do, especially when we have two games this week.

Head is really, really f**ked. Been too heavy on drink the past few months, kicked off by something quite serious happening in the family, and started delving into drugs too which was a big mistake. Having a serious effect on my relationships and financial life and all starting to hit home with xmas coming up. Biggest eye opener was being called into a disciplinary meeting with work this morning after being late again Friday morning, and possibly being broke for the Christmas due to owing money from what I've gotten myself into. 

Feel like i'm on the verge of a mental breakdown and haven't a clue what to do, recently graduated with a good job and I can feel myself throwing it all away. any advice from anyone else on here would be greatly appreciated as I have kept this a bit of a secret to everybody else in the real world.

Anyone on here know of any good ways of reliving stress that's brought on by anxiety. It gets so bad at times I'm waking in the middle of the night because of it and sleep pattern is destroyed

Exactly..... exercise and fresh air. Eat well (healthy).
Early to bed, early to rise.
Cut any “misery guts” out of your life.
But you need to talk one on one with someone about what’s on your mind, even if there is not one particular thing that is on your mind, and even if it means you ramble on for ages about nothing in particular.

As has been said on this thread you need to talk to family and friends talking about it has always worked for me getting problems off my chest.
 
I hope things improve for you soon.

Always find it helps to write down what's causing my anxiety and how to solve it, never as bad as I think.

Started playing squash lately and it's done wonders for me, always tried the gym but never enjoyed it so didn't go. Really enjoying the squash now and felt much better for it. 

Good to try find exercise you enjoy because nobody will stick with something they don't like, took me years to find it.

worked with an ex US Marine in Darwin and he used to preach this every friday morning at the prestart meeting. 
we would have about 300 construction workers in our section and he would hand out paper and pens to every single one of them. he would give them 5 minutes to write down all your issues and then go back to their locker and put the paper in it. He would say to them that he wants to cross off 1 or 2 of those issues the following week. the following Friday he would send the lads back to their lockers at a random stand down point in the day to get the paper. he would ask them to add to the list first and then cross off anything that they have put to bed. Morale on Site was excellent after about 6 to 8 weeks and a lot of people appreciated it. 

it is something i have used since with training hurling teams and it does work. Good suggestion nvidic i totally forgot to post about this before! Clap

No worries, always helps me sleep better! Know a few people who swear by it, albeit never heard of it for 300 people, that's good to hear.

If its playing up at night try mindfulness before you sleep, Works well for me, Just search it into youtube and find the right one for you. Ive recently joined a gym, doing cardio a couple of times a week helps big time, afterwards I feel great and it helps me to sleep easier. Tough at times but you just got to keep going, even though it is brutal at times.

Clap  Brilliant from Iain Lee (obviously a guy who has gone through stuff himself)

Keeps a guy who has taken an overdose on the phone while emergency services were been called.

A tough listen but as I said brilliant from Lee
