Hello Emmy

Welcome to SR.

Yup I had a serious case of the - I had no withdrawal symptoms, never had a DUI, no arrests, no broken relationships, - so what is the big deal. Conclusion - I am not an alcoholic.

I quickly got off of that bus. I do still not completely believe that I am an alcoholic, but it doesn't matter. I could clearly see the destruction that drinking was causing and could see the probable path I would travel if I continued to drink. So I stopped and so far have stayed stopped without much trouble.

Instead of going on and on with the alcoholic vs. not alcoholic debate I consider myself very lucky that I figured it out before it got so bad. Now that I don't drink, I can't see what positives there are to drinking. Headache, empty calories, expense, etc. No thanks.
