Does anyone feel qualified to offer an opinion about my drinking? I know there are criteria such as ability to perform at work/school, relationship health, physical health, drinking alone or in the morning. I don't meet any of those criteria. However when I do drink it is almost impossible for me to stop after one. I mean, I'm already thinking about the second glass mid-way through the first. Usually I'll stop by 4 glasses and I don't drink the night before I have to wake up early, make an appointment, work or go to class. The only problem is that I can't just have a drink, it needs to keep going until I'm a little more than buzzed or I feel somehow unsatisfied? the second problem is that sometimes I drink for what is the wrong reason... such as stress. or wanting motivation to get things done. Oh and I don't do any other drugs. Basically I don't think I have a huge drinking problem. But tips so I can understand how to stop or pace myself while drinking would be helpful. Other insight and advice is most welcome.
