    Moderation is key. Usually too much of anything will cause imbalance in other things. A domino effect. My vice is physical laziness. Sometimes I just have no will to get off my butt and do something. But I force myself to do it anyway, for fear of the consequences that will come around eventually.

    I recall you felt no purpose in life. My view is Life is self-fulfilling.

    The thing with addiction, whether it is to alcohol, drugs, food, gambling, sex, TV, social media, and practically anything else, is that the brain's dopamine/norepinephrine/serotonin system responsible for motivation, reward, pleasure, and even a sense of purpose in life, has been miscalibrated on the immediate gratification such addictions provide rather than balanced, healthy living. The addict can hardly be blamed given a vast portion of the economy is dedicated to servicing the worst of our addictions. They key is identify your vice and end it, you will see motivation and purpose return as your brain down-regulates the neurotransmitters.

    Do you have some music that helps keep you occupied and not think about drink. Bach, Bizet or who ever you like

    Why not cool it and stop scaring other people that you’re going to do yourself in. Other people have been faced with such challenges and they’re still here. What has been done can be done.

    The OP seems to be asking for help. Hopefully he is able to get it at home, and not have to rely upon virtual friends who are well meaning but not trained and not geographically able to assist
