    I have a bit of a drink problem but I can usually withstand from alcohol if I want to for a while. But then something happens (even if it's something really small and insignificant) and I suddenly NEED to drink. Beforehand I won't even be thinking about it and won't have thought about it for days, but when something happens I just have this sudden need to drink, almost like flipping a switch.
    Anyone else get this?

    It sounds like a trigger happening Have you told you doc about it. When it happens have you tried to replace that need with something more positve. Talkto someone okay there are ways to deal with this type of trigger. hugs
