    I'll have a beer or two maybe once every couple of months.

    sometimes rarely, and sometimes every night.
    Comes and goes in stages.

    Daily for a long time. I get horrible withdrawals when I don't, but I sometimes run out of money :sad:

    when i need to die, or need to go to sleep and shut things off. it isn't too good an idea but i feel it's worse than taking a sedative because...i dunno. i just remember a few months back i was scared at how i was thinking about it, it was a lot like being obsessed with food/bulimia and i realised, no way are you going there again and i managed to stop whatever was going on right there. (i don't know how i just did my best and i suppose i had some control over it then even though at the time i felt out of control a lot.)

    To be honest with you, its not that bad. When I worked for the samaritans, we had people going through DT all the time and the biggest hurdle is the fear of taking that first step. After that, its comparitively easy.

    Occasionally. sometimes only once a month or so. sometimes more but usually not that often.

    Used to drink (binge) twice a week, usually about the equiv. of 3 bottles of wine.

    Then it went down to once a week.

    Then every couple of weeks.

    Now I am completely off the stuff, it just makes me flip out and that's something I can do without. :(

    I would kill for a drink. I don't know who will buy for me today. If I get any it probably won't be until Thursday.

    i drink everyday,more and more depending on what my body can handle.Sometimes I just can't drink that much..which I always thought was a blessing..but it is slowly getting more and more..and the urge is earlier in the day.I buy the biggest jug of wine I can afford,and the cheapest and am going through them faster and faster.I can't be buying wine at all because I dont even have money I am using a credit card.AA is an option I know but hey..whats the point when I go home and there is no aa meeting in my house to stop me.

    I get home from work on weekdays at 6pm most nights, drink until 1am. I've noticed if I get home later I compensate to more or less the equivalent time I was out after work for. Weekends are a free for all.
