    Like many of you here, I planned on having a few and once I started I didn’t want to stop. I couldn’t get enough.

    If there was any question remaining in whether or not you’re an alcoholic, of which only you can know, then this last sentence should never leave your memory when making the decision. It’s quite a sobering statement in it’s stark honesty. Good luck in rehab. I hope it goes well for you.

    Go try some more controlled drinking, bearing in mind what you have learned about alcoholism.

    I would ask: Is there any event or combination of events that would make you wish you had given it up now? ie, loss of partner, family, freedom, liver, etc? Do you operate a vehicle while drunk? If so, what would be the effects of an arrest or a wreck? Would you like to quit drinking after having killed or maimed someone. (I know people who have started sobriety that way. It happens.)

    If you see something scary coming, one alternative might be to try a year of controlled sobriety. Abstain and apply the Steps as best you can, and don’t worry about labels. At the end of that time you can evaluate the results and retrun to drinking if that makes sense to you.
