Jsbodhi, me too. I even had doctors, therapists, and friends say I'm not an alcoholic. But guess what? They were basing that decision on "criteria" and each person is different.

On a deep level I just KNEW I have a problem. I started healing when I stopped comparing myself and started doing recovery work.
I've found the same thing, over the summer I was actually drinking the reccomended guidelines for alcohol, sometimes a little over, sometimes a little under.
But no one knew how much I was obsessing over my intake, it was exhausting, I just had to let it go completely.
Maybe I wasn't drinking as much, but I sure as hell thought about it all the damn time.
