I’m afraid I’m developing an alcohol problem... I’m not even drinking to numb the pain anymore, I’m drinking when I’m bored, lonely n then out to have good time with friends also! I’m getting hangovers more often than before n I’m not sure when it’s too much... do you think every week is too much? Every day? I think I’m drinking like 2 to 3 drinks every other day.

By reaching out signifies that you may believe you have an issue with your drinking. Your behaviors that you are mentioning are problematic. One of the first and foremost realities is you must be true to self. The feedback from NS100 and JGraceD are excellent. I would take heed and remember that denial is the enemy.

Well, just because you're lonely that doesn't mean you have to resort to alcohol. Try finding newer activities to keep yourself involved. First and foremost, control on your urge to have a drink every time. But if you aren't able to control your urge, start by limiting your drinks. Like when going to a party limit yourself to one small drink.

@jyotisharma2859 thanks for advice, I don’t drink at parties really or in public much and at home like one or two to relax so I think it’s more related to anxiety and I’m self medicating.... I decided I need to stop buying and having around the house bc I think this could easily get out of control which is bad... I’m working on new activities to do n trying to get a life back together again after this terrible nightmare of a marriage!!
