does anyone else have a problem with alcohol and self injury? Is that an abnormal combination? I self injured way before I started drinking and when I slip up now its not always alcohol induced but it gets bad when Ive been drinking.and probably more dangerous because alcohol is numbing. I know I probably have some alcoholic tendencies, im not sure…but every time I think its ok for me to drink (ie im in a good state of mind, I feel in control, I feel stable, ive had a good day, im in a good mood) and I think to myself “i wont self injure this time because I feel good” it never fails…I always get messed up and self loathing and I self injure. I do this over and over and over and over again and I feel so weak and pathetic because I KNOW what I’m doing wrong but I can’t seem to stop because my urge to drink makes me rationalize everything away and then I hate myself more when I KNOW that I know I shouldnt be alone when I’m drinking. I just feel dumb and Ive gone back to this vicous cycle so many times I don’t know if I’ll ever be strong enough to make the right choice. Does that make sense?
