I think I'm becoming an alcoholic.Watch
Consuming alcohol in large quantities for a week isn't really my definition of being an alcoholic, however, if you continue drinking it could lead to an addiction problem with alcohol later on. I suggest you talk to someone, maybe a close friend or family member? It doesn't have to be about alcohol, but other things.
Whenever I feel down or upset, I find exercise helps a lot.
I hope all goes well for you, and you have a good new year. Best.
Are you certain that you are in the early stages of becoming physically addicted to alcohol? If this is the case, the best thing to do is to stop cold-turkey. Find some resolve, put all alcohol where it is out of sight and make a serious note to yourself that your health depends on you staying sober until you can prove you are no longer addicted.
Question why you started consuming large amounts of alcohol in the first place. Was it simply an indulgence that gradually grew out of control, or is it an emotional crutch to help you deal with depression, loneliness or stress?
Although taking a swig of whiskey doesn't make you an alcoholic - love how some people think drinking anymore than at a weekend is alcoholism Alcohol does have a snowball effect, it starts with a little, turns into a lot. So if you're gonna keep doing what you're doing, stick to it and don't start drinking more and more each time.
It is 3:30 am, I woke up at 3:20 and went downstairs to empty my bladder. However, whilst I was downstairs I helped myself to a swig of whiskey, I'm doing this allot now. Swigging whiskey at night time, in the mornings as I prepare my cereal or as I'm revising in the kitchen. My parents are not home and I'm on Christmas break. My family has a long history of alcoholism. This has been going on for about a week now, I think I'm becoming an alcoholic.. help?
