Relapse due to trauma need help

created by: Chrisjew 4 months ago

I crushed my arm at work, almost had it amputated in October 22. Less than a year later I am no longer on any pain meds have any kind? Sadly, I just can’t stop drinking like a lot. This is my first day sober. My last drink was yesterday at six never would’ve been back on drugs or alcohol, if I didn’t crush my arm I would’ve never been drinking alcohol a lot. It just help take the pain away to make me not even care that I have 10% use my right arm. There’s anyone out there that can help me add appreciate it very much. I’m gonna end up killing myself if I can’t stop drinking.

Thank you for posting Chris. Talk to the medical team treating your arm. Sometimes they can speed up the process of getting you admitted into a treatment facility. Stay in touch with your treating physicians and let them know you need to get off the booze and pain meds.

I talk to my lawyer today and he advised me that if that’s the route, I wanted to take then he needs to know before hand and find the best possible place for me to go sadly I was 5 years clean off drugs, like meth, and heroin.. I know I can stop. I just need like that 30 days should have a longer but my family can’t handle a six month long rehab and thank you for commenting.

Prayers for you. Thanks for the reminders about how drinking only turns one problem into two problems, how eventually it makes pain worse, how it’s easier to stay sober than it is to get sober, and how important it is not to ever pick up the first drink no matter what. That said, I have seen many people with facts like yours regain their sobriety by letting go and doing whatever it takes to immerse themselves in appropriate treatment. For me it included the free, daily involvement in AA.

Over 30 days sober. My next surgery comes up on 14 July where they’re going to prescribe me heavy pain meds again hopefully I can use them as needed and not as an addict. This is the last surgery that I’m going to have on my arm so hopefully, it’ll leave me pain-free after everything is healed. Thanks for the support from you guys.
