Am I? I Don't Know

I don't know I am an alcholic or not. But every alcoholic says he is not. Sometimes I drink regularly for 15-20 days without a miss but there has been time when I don't drink for 15-20 days.

 

Whenever I am mad at something or I am depressed. I drink and talk to myself as I don't express my feelings to others expect my gf but she ditched me last year.I drink when I am happy or sad...lolz

When I am happy then I usually have a company of my friends but I am sad ,I don't need anyone with me.

I don't know if there is any measurement for Alcoholics.. I don't drink daily... now days I drink only on weekends and its fine with me....Is drinking on weekends means I m alcoholic??

Only you can decide if you're an alcoholic or not, but you can diagnose yourself rather easily. First off, you don't have to lose everything and everybody in your life, or have DUI's or be any particular age. You do not have to be a daily drinker. If you cannot take a drink and quit or if when drinking you have little or no control over the amount you drink, you are probably alcoholic. This comes from the Big Book of AA. If you can stop but can't stay stopped, you are probably alcoholic. Alcohol is cunning, baffling and powerful. One of the baffling parts is our inability to leave it alone.

Today I wanted to drink but I stopped myself

Take from me, you're an alcoholic. I am too, sober for 8+ years in the program. You can do it too, it's worth it. It's fun!
