I think I might be an alcoholic. I just went and emptied out all the alcohol in the house, because I find myself wanting it more and more and more, and I can't be drinking during the day. I have a five month old son who counts on me, and I need to be careful. I want to get drunk every night, but only do it once a week, because my husband would have a major problem if I drank that much at home. He won't let me buy it, because he knows I have a problem.
I have the genes, that's for sure. I've got alcoholism on both sides, genetically. Maybe I'm overreacting, but I constantly want to drink. When I say constantly, I mean I'm even dreaming about it all night, and wake up wanting to get drunk. I just don't know. Maybe I'm recognizing it early, or maybe i'm overreacting. Any thoughts?
