Are there any alcoholics in recovery here?
I was close to hitting bottom. Too close. Four days sober now. It sounds like bullshit, I know, but I've never counted the days before. I've never really tried.
What was your poison, /ck/? I always loved a bottle of red wine and 12 beers. That was just enough to get me where I needed to be. Enough to get me high and then send me to sleep. But I know better now.
I've been realizing lately that I'm an alcoholic. I've suspected for a while that I had a drinking problem, but when I started drinking more and more in the mornings, taking my flask with me when going out, making myself puke in the morning to avoid a worse hangover, etc. I started to realize it was a legitimate problem.
But here I am, skipping class and drinking bottom shelf whiskey and watching Netflix. Fuck. Glad you're doing better OP.
During my first year of University I had a 6 month period where I started to drink myself to sleep, every night via half a bottle of ruby port from Aldi and would binge drink to go nightclubbing with some friends; this eventually slipped into daytime drinking.
It got bad to point that I would steal alcohol from my parents when I stayed over, my Dad eventually had a sit down with me and pointed out what I was doing.
I'm now capable of going two weeks without a drink and stopped binge drinking.
It really does help if you have someone you can talk to about this shit in your lives Anons.
