OK, am I an alcoholic?
I just asked a question if my Dad is an alcy. But I drink a lot myself. OK I’m pretty drunk now. Its a monday night and I’m sitting alone. I’m doing a PhD, I shouldn’t be doing this - I have to function tomorrow but I’ll just have a hangover.
I’m single and I know if I wasn’t I would’nt be drinking as much because I would never want anyone to know how much I drink. It’s harder to hide with a boyfriend. I guess I feel a need to feel something else, something different to what I feel when I’m sober. Maybe a substitute for lust and love?
I’ve been drinking every day, getting drunk maybe 3-4 days a week, with only 1-2 of those days with friends. I’m 30 yrs old and female by the way.
I’m only worried because of the alcoholism and depression that runs in my family. I’ve already been pointed out as the next one to ‘go’. I will point out my family are wonderful and I thought this might have been an aside, but maybe not??
