It’s hard to judge your situation based on the description you gave. But soaked PJs from sweat (or urine!) aren’t a good thing. The post drinking depression isn’t good either.
Alcoholism gets progressively worse. I spent 8 years on beer or wine, no liquor. Then one day it didn’t do the trick anymore and I switched to vodka. I used to only drink after work and on weekends. Then one day it wasn’t enough anymore and I was sipping before work and well before noon on weekends.
I think if you’re honest with yourself, you’ll find the answer to your question. Good luck!June 20, 2017 at 8:57 pm #4968519
Welcome to 12 Step National Meetings Tony.
I hope you can come to a decision soon about your drinking. Waiting to long could become waiting until its to late. Usually after some life threatening events caused by alcohol drinking do cause many to face the fact that they do have a problem.June 20, 2017 at 8:58 pm #4968526

I have read a few things about Alcoholism and do think I have a problem?
I have always had beers most nights after work at home – though about 1 year ago I stepped it up a bit in terms of strength and moved on to Real Ale and kronenbourg. I have been finding that after 2 nights on the beer, usually Sunday night I wake up and my PJ’s are soaked – so wet you can ring them out and have a a full on depression the next day which may last 2 days.
Do I sound like I have a problem? The very fact this happens?
Thanks guys – all help appreciated
Not 1000 miles from me (Lancashire)!
For a long time I ignored my symptoms, advice from others, and tell tale signs too. Only you know if you have a problem, but you have definitely found the right place to discuss it.
Why don’t you start with the break which was suggested before – see how you cope, if you have a hard time doing without then maybe it’s time to consider whether it’s worth the effort drinking.
