You can go weeks and weeks (even months) without alcohol, but when you finally have some, you can't just have one or two, it has to be eight + and usually until you're completely wasted beyond belief? I have never really thought of myself as someone who had a massive drinking problem until I came on SF, because this is how my drinking is. I go weeks and weeks without any. I mean half the time it's not even on my mind. I have no real desire to get drunk or to be drunk (okay so every now and again I do think "man I could use a drink" but it's not a daily or constant thing). Anyways, when I do eventually have one, it's never one, it always turns into a binge drinking huge bender and I am not satisfied with my evening unless it's like this. For instance, a couple of weekends ago I met a friend for what was supposed to be a couple of drinks, I made him stay out until 2am and we did shots and drank at least five or six instead of the three or four we were supposed to. And even then I could've gone on until 5am and drank a couple more... Does this mean I have a problem?
