Drinking - November 6th 2012, 06:39 PM

I don't know if I have a drinking problem, I enjoy drinking with my friends I do it every weekend. We go to a place to party, have fun. Sometimes I get too drunk, sometimes I don't, most people do that so that can be considered normal.
But then I think about it and my mentality started to change a lot, I start to feel ripped off if I go to a cafe/bar/restaurant and don't get a beer or anything with alcohol. I guess I enjoy the buzz without being self aware of it, I've never driven drunk but I've done stupid things like spent a lot of money or saying things I shouldn't have.

I kind of want to stop drinking completely but then I think about it and there's no way I won't do it this weekend.

For me, finding out if i truely was an addict, and coming to terms with the fact that i was, was the hardest part of recovery. Alcoholics Anonymous promotes the idea that the only person who can determine if your an alcoholic is yourself, and this is wisely put. Try to go a few weeks without drinking, if you can't i'd recommend Alcoholics Anonymous. Go online and they have a hotline you can call to find a meeting in your area.
