Yup, still an alcoholic

I was starting to notice quiet insidious worsening nature of this habit. That's why I want to get to a place of being able to enjoy my life without "enhancing" with alcohol. I want to learn to socialize without, to listen to music without desiring it, and to watch a movie and remember it the next day.

Don't let atheism keep you from AA. You are in good company in AA with reservations about spirituality. There are a million reasons I could tell you why AA was not for me until I was ready to accept recovery. Good luck. And, thanks for your post! I need these reminders. Your story is mine.

This illness is clearly progressive. I went through the 90% ok and finally stopped when I got to 10% ok and 90% being drunk, hungover or obsessing about getting a drink.

Stop now and save yourself that torment...

I just looked at recent credit card statements. I noticed the charges to liquor stores dates were getting closer together. So, the process was happening.

Thanx everyone. I'm on day three. I do take all of your suggestions to heart.

Being a self employed artist, I've come to accept that I'll never be rich but the amount of money to be redirected away from self destruction is significant. I simply don't know how I ever afforded it!
