    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
    That's it the min I have 1 wine the next night I feel like I need another and then that leads to alot n then drunk :-/ I'm trying so hard not to drink I went n brought lemon lime n bitters n poured the alachol down the drain felt good to do
    I fell in love with you when you were in my womb but now i carry you in my heart instead of my arms

    Can I just say, as a daughter of an alcoholic, I appreciate you taking that step. My Dad went to AA meetings (court ordered) for a year, but after fulfilling court requirements stopped going.

    He recently had a devastating motorbike accident after drinking, which is not his first DUI accident. He is lucky to be alive. I understand that you may not be at this stage, but as a small child I remember my Dad occasionally getting 'tipsy' as a coping mechanism. This is how it turned out.

    Years, years, years later, we are still dealing with his addiction. I live in Brisbane, the rest of my family live in Central Queensland (a place riddled with the drinking culture). I still have a young sister and brother living at home and this worries me.

    Again, I thank you for your reflection of the effect this could have on your family.

    Sending healing thoughts

    Default you are brave!!

    wowsers! just read your post and can identify with you! Goodness me my DP and I love love love a drink! Its what makes our world go round lol (sort of) We would share a bottle of wine over dinner every night, and thats a well behaved night. We've just done our first round of IVF and unfortunately it was not successful. Before it all started i wondered how i would get through without a drink. I had a couple of drinks 2 nights a week while on lucrin and stimming and nothing after ET and 2WW. It really wasnt as hard as i thought. . .but god i was bored at times . .parties and dinners out just aint that much fun without alcohol . .. it was good practice for the 9 months im hoping is ahead of us soon. Thinking about becoming pregnant helped me stay focussed . . .I drank lots of non alcoholic soda mixers, it helped. Good luck .
