I Have An Alcohol Problem

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 149 People

    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...

    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 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 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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    on paper. Great wife, incredible 2 kids, a nice home, a great career...BUT, I have been drinking (quietly) almost every night after work for the last year. I used to be the definition of healthy and much happier, but I think I am suddenly an alcoholic. I am extremely...

    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...

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

    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...
