I've gone from being effectively being teetotal to drinking a bottle of vodka a week (plus beers) which my dr (and support worker) says is way too much! My father was an alcoholic. My brother IS an alcoholic but it's never been my problem. Yet now I feel I need it every day. Not a physical need but an emotional one. I don't feel it's a problem but not sure whether it's going to become one. It's the unconsciousness that drink provides that I'm after! Don't know?? What do you think???
