[175]

Ive never openly talked about this but I struggle with just having one or two drinks. I'll buy myself a 12 pack of beer after work and tell myself that I'm gonna stretch it out a couple days but then after I have one I'll just keep opening another bottle till the packs gone. I'm pretty good about limiting myself at bars but chances are I'll buy a 6 pack of beer or a bottle of whiskey so I can keep the buzz going when I get home. I'm 25 and this routine has been pretty steady for about 5 years. Parts of me feels like it's just a phase but then I realize I cant go more than 3 days without drinking and I'm worried that it'll become more of a problem in the future.

@Troy3
thanks for the reply I have been looking at support groups in my area ,my partner is supportive,but I feel I have given him worries and he is a worrier anyway so now I feel guilty all the time I havnt had any alcohol for a few days now and have had urges but have resisted even when I have been on my own ,which was always a danger time for me ,so I just have to keep focusing on being positive it been a very stressful time for the last 6 months which isn't an excuse just the reality of life but I have to focus on the good days

@n5etc wow I can really relate to the part of trying to keep it secret. When I first got with my ex I was living in my own apartment and on nights when she didnt stay over I would just drink out of boredom mostly. I'm pretty sure she could tell whenever i was hung over but never questioned it until she moved in a couple years later. Thats when she noticed how frequently I was drinking and it became a problem throughout the relationship and was partly why we split. I've gone dry for a month at the longest but once I get a small buzz I'm right back to my old habits.
