I kicked drinking years ago but I started again following a family estrangement. I am, overseas and have caused so many problems including 3 suicide attempts. Al lI have is my boyfriend and he says we are just friends now after my last suicide attempt. I am so low and still trying to stop drinking and all alone in a hostel. Some support would be so appreciated.

Yes well I can understand he is pissed off with me. One time it was touch and go in a coma, and it cant be a lot of fun being told someone is going to die, etc

I may be stating the obvious, but the drinking can increase the depression and suicidal thoughts. One thing I focus on when the urge to drink hits is to recall how crappy it leaves me feeling later, whether flushed and overheated, racing heartbeat, weakness, and tired/hungover and unmotivated the next day. I really focus on those unpleasant feelings and it helps deter me long enough for the urge to pass. The more days sober I put behind me the easier it gets, slowly but surely. I know that’s not everyone’s experience...
