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.

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 .
