OK, so you made a number of bad decisions, and have now made the far wiser decsion to clean up your act. Congratulations. Feeling guilty now, and brow-beating yourself for not having been brilliant earlier, serves no useful purpose at all. See a good local CBT oriented counsellor asap, and put a stop to this. There's no devil which takes hold of you at weekends. Don't go to any of the places where you drunk or drug ; don't hang round with the friends with whom you have been drinking and drugging. Stay at home till you have this mastered. Consider joining AA and NarcAnon, and get the help and support of others who have managed similar situations. The shrink will help yopu to make the Good you stronger and in charge
