    Default Drinking problem

    So I've gotta admit it n let it out I've got a drinking prob
    Was brought a bottle of wine thought to myself yerp I'll just have one glass one lead to 3! I've just tipped the bottle down the sink so i don't get drunk ( could feel myself wanting to get wasted) I just don't understand why I can't stop at just one it's so frustrating I need help b dunno where to get it.

    I completely understand. I feel like I can go ages without having a drink - bit if I have a wine I find it difficult to stop at one.

    Hey there Jagamoe,

    It takes a lot of courage to ask for help with an addiction, and I applaud you for your courage.

    I don't have any personal experience to offer, but I believe that admitting the problem is the first, and often the hardest, step.

    I think talking to your GP is an excellent idea.

    Good luck

    Must be a wine thing then ? I dunno I can happily have just 1 beer or rtd cruiser etc but with wine I feel like oh another glass won't hurt and end up drinking the whole bottle n wanting to get drunk n I know I use alachol as a stress relief kinda thing but just don't understand why I have trouble stopping at just one :-$

    hi, I think it is wise of you to seek help from your GP. I wonder if there is something in wine that triggers you to want to go overboard.?? I think most people with alcohol problems cant stop at the first drink no matter what, but you can have only one beer. ?? I am sure AA will have plenty of support and information for you, so that will be worth following up, after you see the doctor. all the best, Marie.

    I love my wine... I have a glass every night, well I used to. I don't touch it now. I don't think you have addiction. I have family that have addiction to alcohol and that is another story all together! Don't be so hard on yourself, maybe take it as a sign that maybe you need a break. If you can have one beer and stop, in my honest opinion, I don't think you are addicted.

    I just want to give you some big hugs and congratulate you on your strength and courage in admitting you may have a problem.

    You have inspired me to to get something off my chest, a deep dark secret I have held onto for way too long:

    I am a mother of 2, I have a very successful career, I have a loving husband and a beautiful home, I am nursing my mother who is dying and I have nobody to help me with that and finally - I think I have an alcohol problem

    I have 'googled' the definition of alcoholic and am sad to say I tick a few of the boxes, I like to have a glass of wine everynight, sometimes 2 (or 3), sometimes if I have had a horrible day it could be 4 glasses and like many others I can go weeks without having a drink but the moment I have 1 its like I literally fall off the wagon and am back to a few drinks everynight. Sometimes I get tipsy, rarely I get drunk. Sadly I cannot imagine my life without alcohol being part of it in some way shape or form. I have a huge work event coming up in 8 weeks and I mean huge and my weakness for wine is kinda scaring me as I would hate to make a fool out of my self in front of my collegues.

    Sorry no point to my rant (can you tell I have had a few glasses of wine ) I guess for me all I can do is be aware of what I drink and continue to reason in my own head and force myself to stop like I have so far managed to do
