    I Can't Do This On My Own

    I think I need to admit myself. I don't trust myself to be home alone all day. I feel like someone else is living in my body.

    Shut Up You Drama Queen

    I don't have real problems, and am perfectly comfortable with my low level alcoholism. (230 lb, married man (10 yr) no children almost 40).. For about 15 years I have enjoyed 6-7 drinks a night to help me escape any minor irritations. Aside from some future liver issues, I dont...

    IS It a Problem? Is It?

    I am not an alcoholic.  So many would argue I DONT have a drinking problem.  When I start drinking whether its social or its just me at home with a beer, sometimes I just want more...and more...and I just cant stop.  I KIND of want to change...but at the same time...

    I Drink Too Much

    Since I discovered alcohol at age 12, I have drank alcoholically. There have been periods of sobriety in my long run, but it is not over yet. I sit here and drink again. Knowing I will hurt in the morning, knowing the hangover will haunt me for hours and yet I still put this...

    I Just Ruined A Wonderful Relationship

    6 days ago my lady friend detected alcohol on my breath. I had drank heavily the night before. In fact, I always planned my drinking to coincide with the days I wasn't seeing her. I had forgotten about her keen sense of smell. Well, that was the last time for me, no more chances...

    7 Years Is 7 Years Too Many

    I've always been a once-a-week binge drinker but over the last 7 years I've been an everyday abuser. Monumental changes in my life - a child and a husband- has left me not knowing quite what to do a night. With very little time available for myself I resort to cramming down as...

    Illegal and Unhealthy

    Unfortunately I have an extremely bad drinking problem. Very bad I could basically be classified as a full blown hardcore alcoholic. What's even worse is the fact that it's illegal since I'm a minor. I believe I started drinking at 13 or 14 (I know "how terrible) I can just...

    Story Of My Goddamned Life

    I LOVE drinking, because it makes me feel so much better in the moment (like right now). But I hate how I feel when I come down/the next day. Also, I get very paranoid when I drink. O_o And it runs in my family, so it is nothing to be proud of. *sigh* I dunno, man. I really...

    When I was 17 going on 18, I had a small drinking problem. I would purposely get drunk to numb the pain of losing my grandfather. The last thing I remember of him was him asking in pain "Why do you hate me?" I hated my self so much because of that. I found that quote, or atleast...
