    Alcohol Will No Longer Be In My Life

    I'm making a promise to myself to stop drinking, I don't drink every day if anything maybe once a week or twice. But I've realized that when I drink I always go h.a.m and I make poor decisions, like drinking and driving or being a bully or getting into arguments. I will stop...

    Over A Week

    I've been sober for over a week and feel great about it. I've been to several meetings and plan to go to many more. I can't wait to put this dark part of my history behind me.

    My Biggest Problem

    Is alcohol. Now, i'm not drinking everyday-In fact I abstain from the drink on nights before I go to work (getting up at 4 am is a really good reason not to drink to excess). But now I'm in school full-time and working less, and I've developed a habit of drinking almost every...

    I like to not think I'm an alcoholic cause I

    know I can live without it and don't feel the need to drink constantly. I have been in situations where I can stop drinking before the point of becoming a blacked out monster. But then there are other times where I go way past my limits and black out. When I do this it causes me...

    Day eleven. I feel like I'm gonna snap.

    I just want to get away from everyone. Wife has been snapping at me most of the day. I swear she's trying to push me over the edge.

    Stop It Now, Before It Gets Worse

    I started drinking at a young age. I was expelled my first year of high school for coming in drunk. At age 16 I was diagnosed with Cirrhosis of the liver (not from alcohol). And I didn't drink for 4 years. Before New Year's Eve, about a month or so I began slipping back into old...

    I Thought I Just Liked The Way It Tasted.

    The burn of strong alcohol pushing itself down to my stomach, the slight warmth of beer, the tickle of champagne...I didn't have a problem. I was a social drinker. Then I noticed that it put me to sleep when I had trouble closing my eyes, filled me up when I couldn't bear to eat...

    I Was Drinking Before 2pm Today

    I like to think that I don't really have a problem, and I only went to see an alcohol counsellor to get my care-co-ordinator off my back. But I obv. have a problem, it's not a physical dependency, like, I don't get the shakes but I do get craving and it's the first thing I turn...

    I can drink moderately a few times a week,

    and I can also not drink for a few weeks. It's come down to the point that when I say I haven't drank and my partner says I have, I have agreed to do an alcohol breath test in front of him. Before I've hidden wine, and tried all the tactics to cover my behavior up. Of course he...

    My problem isn't drinking every day.

    My problem really is that I have a hard time not getting completely hammered recently when I drink. I just don't even think of it and I keep going. It's bad. I have alcoholics in my extended family, but I don't feel a real addiction to alcohol. I just somehow have no tolerance...

    I'm a binge drinker and have major issues with

    Problem Drinker

    I am a problem drinker. I wouldn't consider myself an alcoholic because it doesn't happen every week, and I don't drink every day, but I'm definitely a problem drinker. Sometimes when I drink, it gets out of control.. I have this need to drink more and more, to prove I can, or to...

    The $hi*****t Box

    This is seriously getting ridiculous. I have something a little beyond an alcohol problem. Like an obsession problem... it just so happens that alcohol is the subject of my self-destructive aggressions right now. I'm not an alcoholic, because I'm fully capable of not drinking...
