I've been a chronic alcoholic for around 3-4 years drinking absurd amounts of alcohol. Drugs also on the side alot. Been sober around 1 month. Some days I'm just pissed off for no reason and feel like the world is plotting against me. I also get paranoid around people thinking they can hear my thoughts and I just look like a retard sitting there talking to myself constantly in my head over analysing everything. Do any alcoholics feel like this?

Yes, many alcoholics may experience similar feelings of anger, paranoia, and anxiety during the early stages of recovery. These emotions can be a result of several factors, including withdrawal symptoms, chemical imbalances in the brain, and psychological stressors such as guilt, shame, or unresolved trauma.
It's important to remember that addiction is a disease that affects both the body and mind, and recovery is a process that takes time and patience. It's also crucial to seek professional help and support from friends and family members who can understand and provide emotional support during this challenging time.
If you're experiencing intense or prolonged feelings of anger, paranoia, or other mental health issues, it's essential to speak with a mental health professional for guidance and support. They can help you develop coping strategies, address any underlying mental health disorders, and provide personalized treatment options to support your recovery.
Yeah dude getting sober is going to make you feel crazy for awhile. It gets easier overtime and by month 6th you’ll feel like your back in control of your life
Stop replying to the bots dumbass.
Thanks. I just how it gets better with time I won't having this annoying anxiety all the time
Fuck off and die you retarded chatbot
Whats with all these bots the past few days?
how much did you drink and how did you manage to stop?
I was drinking at least .5 L of hard liquor and 6x 8% beer that was my daily habit for a long time. It was debilitating and I was sick all the time. I starting doing coke more so I can't drink without getting coke now. I'm still getting over it and want to drink sometimes but trying to stay mentally strong and know the repercussions of 1 beer.
sippin on some alcohol free beer right now wich is helping. I feel pretty normal but my liver doesnt. Did you do any serious damage to yours?
I'm sure I did a lot of damage especially to my brain. Seizures and stuff. I was drinking almost suicidally. I can't imagine the damage I've done and I'm 24
maybe get your liver checked out just in case. Good luck brother
Thanks you too

Shiiiit, 'round here we call that "breakfast"
How heavy are you?
Not an alcohol, but I understand addiction in general and have known alcoholics well. It gets easier. The anxiety, paranoia, frustration, desires, they'll all pass if you are patient with yourself. Good job anon, it's tough to stick it out. The progress you've made now is the foundation for a better, longer, healthier life. Build it strong by sticking to your guns. Be forgiving of yourself. Don't let the past dictate your future. You can make it, don't give up. It's worth it.
God today is gonna be day 1 for alcohol and day 3 of drugs for me (minus accidentally huffing carpet cleaner yesterday, that shit somehow sent me to space). My stomach hurts sooo fucking bad. I think the girl I was talking to ghosted me and Im sorta relieved I won’t have that shit to deal with while I try to recover and get my mind and body right. Good for you op to recover while you are still young. Im 29. I have tried quitting in the past and what you are going through is in line with what I have gone through. I hope we can all stay the path and get through this
You need a psychiatrist not LULZ.
My gf was like this, took about three to six months to go away with relapses, but shed lash out a lot and have really stupid leaps in logic and got crazy violent a lot. Shes not an alcoholic now, and much happier overall as a person. I literally watched the light return to her eyes and her personality, so dont give up, you know youre just gonna get sick.

This makes me think you're not exactly telling the truth about being sober for a month? Sober, huh? No substances at all, prescription or otherwise? Clean as a whistle? No reason to lie to us, you know?
God I love sobriety gatekeepers, so helpful, so interesting
not an expert, alcholo may have additional unique effects... but addiction is definitely messing with some brain chemistry regardless of what it is being abused in the addiction. Mood swings and an increase in self consciousness don't seem all that unusual.
