    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.

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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.

    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 have a good life...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    It took over a year for me to realise I

    actually had a problem. I was always the one ending up most drunk at parties. I was the only one who had to drink the morning after to get up of bed. I used to have friends over, and they were shocked to see me drinking several glasses of wine on a school night. But nobody told...

    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
