    I’m not looking for excuses or to sugar coat anything…i am not in denial…I fully admit I have a problem with alcohol…Can someone explain the interchangeable wording of “alcohol abuse” and “alcoholic” …and quite honestly it doesn’t really matter what anyone calls it, the outcome, for me anyway, has got to be to stay away from alcohol completely.

    I am a 43 year old single mom, I work full time and have basically been on my own for the last ten years or so. I have been in a relationship (not a good one) for the last 6 years and alcoholism runs in my family so I get how I am more likely to have a problem to start.

    Things have definitely spiraled out of control since the death of my mother 4 years ago..and again, I have always had a “problem” …not every time I drank and I certainly never drank every day either. There were/are times I can be very responsible and have a glass or two of wine, or a beer…I’m really not into hard liquor.

    In the last 2 years alone, i can probably count at least 5 times where I got so drunk I fell down, blacked out and have even drove drunk. Totally irresponsible of me and I feel so ashamed.

    I have, on my own, stopped drinking only to start with an occasional glass here and there and before I know it, every Friday, Saturday…more recently it’s been at least a glass of wine a night.

    This past Saturday night I got completely trashed in a bar, fell in the bathroom and proceeded to embarrass the **** out of myself and friends. I have not had a drink since…

    Glad I found this place :thanks
