Missing the Feeling of Being Drunk

You have worked hard on your sobriety and on maintaining a sober life. You should be proud of yourself and your accomplishments, but, if you have not yet formed the effective coping skills needed to deal with your drinking triggers, you may struggle to avoid relapse. If you do find that you are leaning closer to an alcohol relapse or have once again started to drink, it is vital that you get professional alcohol treatment.

What Do You Miss about Being Drunk?

If you find yourself teetering on the precipice of an alcohol relapse because you are missing the feeling of being drunk, it is important to ask yourself the following questions:

  • What is making you miss being drunk?
  • Are you currently trying to deal with stress from work or family?
  • What other triggers are you currently dealing with?
  • Are you attending meetings and therapy sessions?
  • Are you trying to cope with untreated anxiety or depression?
  • Do you feel as though you have enough support from those around you?

Carefully consider what it is that you are missing. Is it the physical feeling of being drunk, or is it the escape from reality or the stress of daily life that you are missing?

Getting Professional Help for Alcohol Dependence

An alcohol rehab program will help you learn or relearn the coping skills that will help you deal with your stress triggers in a healthy manner. An alcohol rehab program will provide you with integrated treatment options that include the treatment of underlying mental and emotional health concerns, as there is a strong connection between depression, anxiety and alcohol abuse. When you receive professional treatment for your alcoholism and mental health issues together, you will be in a much better position to embrace long-lasting sobriety. If you have already spent time in an inpatient alcohol treatment facility, you may find that an outpatient rehab program is a great option for you. If you have already taken steps toward an alcohol relapse, you should consider another stay in an inpatient alcohol treatment program.
