Has anyone else had a problem with acting irrationaly upset when drinking? I have not been able to explain that when drinking to much I do not say what I think I am going off into pschotic behavior.

Hi there,
When my partner was drinking, he would become totally psychotic, i was not afraid of him physically, but it was his mental state that scared the hell out of me. I don't know why this happened with him, but i knew it was not normal, it was like it unleashed all his depression and problems at once instead of them being constantly buried by him when he was sober.

Since he has stopped drinking I have not seen that part of him come out, mainly I think becuase he is dealing with his issues instead of burying them away. Now problems are talked about calmly instead of being brought up in some drunken confusing episode.

He learned since stopping drinking that his body is VERY susceptable to any kind of toxin. Even caffeine and sugar can affect his moods, and processed foods too. I think he had an increased intolerance to alcohol, which is common in binge-drinkers, they can be very affected by alcohol.

He is now not drinking and has even found problems with certain foods as i said, so now trys to keep whatever he puts into his body as simple as possible and has to avoid over indulgence of anything! Even eating to much junk food can start of a bout of "mad" behaviour, because he basically has an addictive personality. He has learned to apply moderation to EVERYTHING not just alcohol of whatever becuase it is his addictive personality that is the problem and that can manifest itself in many different areas,

I don't know if this helps at all, but just to say that in my experience the psychosis was definetly only partly due to alcohol problems. The alcohol brought it out into the open but it was really an issue about extremes and addiction. Someone who cannot keep things in balance but always takes eveything to one extreme or another. Extreme emotions, extreme anger, extreme eating, extreme paranoia, extreme drinking, extreme love, passions, happieness, sadness etc etc etc
The key for him was learning that he was an addictive person and trying to apply more balance to his life and re teaching himself to keep himself on the middle path and keeping an eye on his tendancy to take EVERYTHING to the extreme!
This has helped him, but your story may be totally different, you need to do a lot of self evaluation or get some councelling to find out why you have these feelings, IT IS NOT THE ALCOHOL causing these feelings, they are there inside you, the alcohol just lets them out to play for a while. You need to find out what the reall issues are and work on ajusting yourself accordingly! easier said than done, but it will be worth it, if you are bahaving anti socially when drinking, it will hurt your life and that of those who love you, so you will be doing yourself a real favour by getting to the root of it.
Peace
Hazza

Alcohol decreases inhibitions, but amplifies whatever emotions you are feeling at the time you start drinking. Alcohol induced psychosis usualy happens to long-term binge drinkers and/or alcoholics.

You should contact your local AA chapter to get more info on this. This usually signals a drinking problem and needs to be dealt with immediately! My father was alcoholic for 12 years, but is 29 years sober. Even now, though, if he gets drunk, he'll go into psychotic rages (possibly due to his PTSD, but also related to his alcohol abuse).

Good luck, I hope everything works out for you!

Alcohol affects the brain. The brain is the 'control centre' of the body and naturally if you drink too much alcohol then thought processes and behaviour will be affected.
