The Crying Drunk - Why Always Me?

Updated on October 10, 2010

Think Before You Drink

Why is it that so many people tend to drink too much and then, feel sorry for themselves and cry in their beer as the old saying goes.

They feel so sorry for themselves and always say "Why me"? Why is it that the alcoholic that tends to drink a little too much alcohol, always starts the crying blues and wants everyone to feel sorry for them.  They figure if I cry hard and long enough, someone will pay attention to poor little me.

The alcoholic that gets in this stage of the crying in my drink thing, is a true sign they have had too much to drink.  Do you think they would carry on and cry like this being sober?

I can relate to this for sure, and remember all to well those nights of the crying drunk why always me routine.

I had so many wonderful ideas when drinking alcohol. Everything and every thought came so easily into my mind and the more I drank the better the ideas started to flow, so I thought.

Is Anyone Listening?

The problem that I had was people that would hear my brilliant ideas said I was crazy and it would never work. I thought to myself, "it seems like a great idea to me".

Sure it seems like a great idea because I was drunk and really nothing made sense at all to the sober people. So, as the ideas were a wash out, the feel sorry for me routine starts. No one cares. They all think I'm crazy, even though these drunken ideas where great in my eyes.

They of course, had some great ideas for me and that was I should stop drinking alcohol and come down to planet earth. That was not what I wanted to hear. I wanted to hear my brilliant idea was good, but not a chance.

Cry Yourself To Sleep

So here we are with no one to listen to us and feeling as low as came be. Our ideas or thoughts up in smoke. With nowhere to go now we now have the feeling of poor little me. Why is it so difficult to get my point or idea across to anyone?

Could it be that I am making a fool out of myself and not making any sense at all, even though I feel I am right? Do you think by getting the crying drunks into action will make these people feel sorry for me, and then agree with everything I say just to shut me up?

So, if you find yourself in this situation of crying in your drink, you're better off doing it alone because no one is going to listen to you.

      @ Salliebb Thank you so much for your comment and a Huge Congrats to you for 27 years sober That is wonderful and it is great that you gave back by being a Prevention Specialist. I never went to college but I am very educated in the field of drinking alcohol and the effects it can do to a person and their families as well.

      God Bless you and yours!

      Been there done that. I understand perfectly. Celebrated 27 years sober in July, which was exactly how many years I drank. The way I gave back was to be a Prevention Spoecialist for 10 years and a SA educator for 5. You give back by sharing litereature and your articles on the subject. Keep up the good work and stay sober.

      @ VioletSun, Thanks you for the follow and thanks for the comment as well. It took many years to surrender to this horrible addiction, but I am so glad I made it through and found my sobriety.

      I think you are doing wonderful work in writing about alcoholism as you overcame this. I come from a family were my Dad and brother had alcohol issues, as did my ex, so I can understand this world; glad I am not part of this anymore. Life is better without the shadow of addictions.
