Go to the store at 7am on your day off after a big night to get "beers for fishing" later that day.

You know you’re an alcoholic when you’re diagnosed with acute alcoholic hepatitis, quit for a week, and drink every night for another year before quitting.

You keep thinking you are ‘different’, not like THEM, but you really know you were going to die if you didn’t take control.

You wake up with a sore abdomen and wonder how long you have left, or if you quit right now, will you be healed enough again in a month 😂😂😂to have just ‘one’ over the weekend?

You think that buying only one bottle of wine for the evening (for you to drink, not sharing with others) is huge improvement in cutting down your alcohol consumption.

Trying to stop at two is harder than not drinking at all.

You go into denial mode, have one glass of wine, 😂😂😂, and follow the three glasses of wine with two shots of bourbon and two shots of gin. Puke in morning, and have urges again in the next evening. 😩😩😩

You worry about your health screen due in 6 weeks, about liver blood test results.

You hide your wine bottles where daughter can't find them so she doesn't know you're still drinking. (she knew)

You go to the closet where there is sweet vermouth to cook with and you guzzle half the bottle. Then you sneak buy another bottle, and fill the original one up to where you remember the level was. Hide replacement bottle so you can repeat that....

You thanked God for Covid because wearing a mask meant people in shops couldn't smell your breath.

You're on a first name basis with multiple liquor store clerks.

Your SO has to tell you that you will promise to stop drinking after 2 drinks when he says to stop. And then you sneak a few drinks and he wonders why you are so hungover when you only had 2 drinks.

You know you are an active alcoholic when the phrase "one drink", is reworded to "one drink, after another, after another..."

When you are taking Antabuse on a regular basis and still drinking heavily.

It goes like this. "It's Wednesday now, I better not take my Antabuse today, tomorrow or Friday because I want to drink all weekend. "

When you go out to dinner on day 70, and realize how glad you are to be free of the chains.
