    Default @Whatever, I need your expert opinion

    @whatever how do you tell if you're an alcoholic vs just might have a small problem with drinking?

    I have to be somewhat amused at appearing in the thread title... I shall feel honored!

    there are always the checklists that appear online to assess your drinking problem level, but from a more personal viewpoint:

    - you NEED a drink after a rough day... it's what you think about and feel like you deserve/need

    - you may need a drink to fall asleep at night

    - you drink to the point where you don't really remember the night before... and you don't always do it on purpose

    - you feel uncomfortable in social situations without alcohol available

    - you blow off family, friends, work or some other major responsibility or even hobby to drink instead

    - you can't imagine celebrating or unwinding without immediately associating alcohol

    - you drink to like yourself better/forget that you don't like yourself/your life

    - you would rather drink by yourself or with strangers than spend an evening out with friends or family with no alcohol available


    I have to say that if you have to question things though, you might have a problem

    The thread title doesn't make sense.

    it's because I've been rather open and honest about my problems on the site, I guess

    it's alright. i have no money to drink anyways although if i hadn't told my therapist i'd take a break i'd probably run up debt. I still don't think %100 that i have a problem, i think it's getting out of hand but not a problem yet.

    To be honest, if all but 2 things on that list apply you do have a problem... I should know since I listed my own personal symptoms there

    yeah probably,but i'm not quite ready to admit it, i'm doing OK with saying i won't drink for a month, but saying i should quit all together is too much and makes me want to drink to oblivion, i want to do that now but i'm resisting. i don't think i can make it more than a month.

    Start drinking coffee, it helps! And it takes some time to put things in perspective sometimes!
