    I drink 2-3 evenings a week. But sometimes I drink for the right reasons; sometimes I drink because I want to numb something a bit. But I'm so paranoid about becoming dependent on alcohol that I never drink more than 2 drinks in a day.

    Every night... I can't sleep without it. The last night I went without drinking was New Year's Eve, ironically. :/
    90% of the time I post of here I'm at least half drunk... But I'm completely sober right now. It's early.

    I used to drink or do some drug most days of the week. I did drink to just pass out too at night. I thought it was helping me, but in the end now, I know that it's just a coping mechanism that isn't useful for me anymore.

    Sure there are plenty of times that I don't to feel and I just want to numb out, but for me, I think to heal, I have to deal with my feelings, no matter how painful. I no longer drink, although not by choice at first. I started having gallbladder problems and when I drank, even one drink, I would throw up. So I had to stop drinking, now I'm glad I did.

    It can be an easy fix, but be careful, especially if you are one meds or driving.

    Maybe try another day without drinking and see how it is. I don't know.

    Be well and do something nice for yourself today (that doesn't include drinking maybe???) :blink::laugh::wink:

    Too much

    I made the mistake of setting the bar too high/drunk, LOL I mean there are certain situations where I started out drinking to be able to handle the situation and now every time I'm in that situation I do horribly unless I'm drinking

    Such as playing with my band. I can't perform or practice or make new material unless I'm relaxed enough to let go of fears that I'm not going to do well... andwhen I forget to drink or decide to skip it I always embarrass myself and let down the group.
    Probably about 2-3x a week but when I do I drink 3-5 at a time.,

    blah blah, I wish I wasn't so nervous and self-conscious and socially awkward but it's a trade-off- I really really really want to make music so I just hope I don't turn out to be a raging alcoholic.
