Why am I acting like this?
I am an alcoholic, I’ve been clean for 5 years, been with my girlfriend for 4.
When we started dating I asked her if she wouldn’t mind not drinking around me, I said I was fine with her drinking, I just didn’t want her to be drunk around me or put myself around alcohol.
She told me she just wouldn’t drink at all. I told her she didn’t need to do that, but she insisted it was no big deal, she wasn’t bothered by drinking and it was healthier anyway, I appreciated the gesture.
Well, time went on like this, I stayed sober and gradually found it easier to be around drinking (still not bars etc, but quite comfortable at dinners etc where people are having a few drinks).
My gf still didn’t drink but at her sisters 21st birthday she drank a glass of champagne as a toast. I think i’m being out of order but I was annoyed, I kept thinking we have been to loads of celebrations, weddings and the like and she didn’t drink, why now? Why didn’t she let me know? It was a while ago and she hasn’t drunk since, but it’s been playing on my mind..
