What else can I do? I have tried antidepressants, therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, rational behavior therapy, dialectical behavior therapy, acceptance and commitment therapy, a treatment center in Arizona. My kids are now 11 and 10. I feel like I have missed their entire lives. My wife is fed up. I joined Alcoholics Anonymous in 2004. That is not working, although I'm not drinking ... no serenity, no peace, no happiness. House has been on the market for a year. Job is miserable. One doctor says, " No meds." Another says, "Go back to a treatment center." Another says to "do my dishes." I feel so lost. ... 40 years old and I'm at the end of my rope. Please help.
I am a 28-year-old male, about 5 feet 9 and 235 pounds. Most of the extra weight is in the midsection. I do exercise three to four times weekly, but I love to eat. My question is, I have had elevated liver enzymes on and off (usually on) for about three years. During my four years of college, I drank A LOT of alcohol. I would say about 12 drinks a day, every day for four years. I still drink a day or two a month (and yes to the point of intoxication). I know this is not a good behavior and has its dangers. But I would like to know how likely it would be that I have already started liver cirrhosis from my drinking. Any advice on anything above would help. Thank you all very much.
Remember when actresses really lit up the screen? Anne Hathaway rekindles memories of Bette Davis and "Klute"-era Jane Fonda in Jonathan Demme's new film: barely a scene goes by without her pulling on a cigarette.
The habit started seemingly innocent enough, buying scratch tickets at local liquor stores and gas stations 10 years ago. But a few years later, he would find himself -- night after night -- in a Kinko's FedEx store. He wasn't there for the copiers, but for the Internet connection. And he was in trouble.
I'm 26 and I'm a compulsive saver. For the past five years I've saved over 70 percent of my net income, and I don't make that much. I track all my spending and have tried to budget "minimum" monthly spending levels, but I can't seem to meet them. I don't consider myself cheap, just frugal. And all my hobbies - music, games, sports - tend to be low-cost. Do you have any suggestions on how I can spend more money?
