I drink, and I probably would be considered an alcoholic. Although there are many reasons why I drink such as having a toxic family, worries about finishing college and having a real career and future, and more so...i drink to numb the pain of a broken heart--despite these things, I don't point my fingers at people blaming them as if they made or forced me to drink, I know it's a choice and I must take responsibility first and foremost. It's been over a week since I last drank alcohol and I haven't had any withdrawals or cravings so much. And it's not like I don't want to drink, I just haven't really thought about it so much to go out and get any. I'm sorry for rambling, I guess it's just that it's not easy talking about my drinking with family because they blow it out of proportion all the while making dumbass excuses why it's for them to drink and do other habits. I would like to eventually open up about my drinking on this forum, and i hope to do it soon.
