Good Morning everyone. Because I'm posting in this section, I'm undoubtedly pretty new here. I woke up this morning realizing that I cannot control my drinking, or drink in moderation. I live on the east coast where the hurricane just rolled through knocking out power. With that possibility in mind, I went out and purchased a bottle of vodka right before work. Got home, power was still on, my 3 roommates were home and hanging out, thought it was a good time to start drinking. Had drink # 2 while doing some homework, trying to pace myself drank a bottle of water, until the power went out. Then it was board games with friends by candle light, and a bottle of vodka at my side. About after 1/2 the bottle, the power came back and we proceeded to watch something on tv. My 3 friends order food, and I kept drinking. This is where my night ended, in my mind. I woke up around 5 am with a slamming headache, and noticed my bottle of vodka, empty completely in the trash. I also know that I had thrown up last night in the trash in my bedroom, but the trash bag is gone, as well as the shirt I was wearing last night. My roommates are still sleeping, and I feel I should ask them if they had to help me. If this is the case, I am embarrassed of my actions beyond belief. They are pretty new to live with, and because they drink/smoke they do not view my drinking as a problem, but rather embrace it, which is a bad environment. This is the reason I am on this forum, and I hope that today can start a new page in my life, one not plagued with alcohol.

Welcome to SR! Good that you're wanting a sober life. I got sober almost three years ago and don't regret a minute of it.
I'd rather live in my car with my dogs than live in a castle without them.
Dogs may not be our whole lives, but they make our lives whole.
