Likewise like many others it was starting earlier and earlier.....used to be an evening drinker....then started as early as 1pm. Looking back it was perfectly timed so that I could "fit in" my family duties etc. What a fake I was.

Used to be one or two times per week, then it became every other day. And the quantities I was consuming were scary. At one time, a 750 ml bottle would last me weeks, maybe even months. But recently, I could polish one off in two days. The weekend before last, I actually started in at 10 a.m. on the Saturday. Kept going all day. And downed the entire bottle. Scared the hell out of myself.

I drank heavily every day for a little over a year. Before that binge drank. On the weekends I drank more than most would even think would be possible for a person my size.

That is exactly what I would do. 6 out of 7 nights I would wake up at 2ish in the recliner and stumble to bed. Weekends I would wake up at 2ish and fix another drink. I definitely wasn't living. I was a slave to the bottle.

Hah! At least you had your two recommended alcohol free days every week! Had to laugh and crack that one. But hey, I'm laughing with you, not at you.

At my worst I drank all day and night non stop. I always had vodka and if I didn't I should have been hospitalized because of my withdraw syptoms. I had to crawl from my bedroom to my shower. I started taking baths because I couldn't stand up and be safe by myself. I think I went through about a gallon of vodka every day and half to two days for a while.

Every Single Night... And day. Unless I was too hungover to bare it. Normally I'd "power through" regardless.

Before I went into rehab I was drinking all day, every day. I drank from the time I woke up until the time I went to sleep. It was so bad, that I'd open a beer, and set it by my bed to have it waiting on me in the morning to drink before I even got out of the bed.

I drank daily. Then I was on prescription drugs and would binge when I didn't have the drugs. I would stay home to drink all day. If I woke in the middle of the night, I drank. If I had a party, I would hide bottles in my bathroom. Sneak a drink when I could. I never drank out anymore, my mother before she died advised me to stop. It was ruining my rep. She was also a functioning alcoholic (as far as I knew). Now, that I think of it she would b e off work for weeks and months and would be drinking. I realized now I probably went to work still intoxicated from the previous morning hours. It's a miracle I was never fired.

I never was a daily drinker I was more a binge drinker so that added to my denial over being an alcoholic. I was the type it talks about in the BB I could just go have a few the problem was that I never knew which time it would be. One night I might have just wanted a few and I would be in a black out. Other times I would plan to get ripped and leave after 2. I used to say I was never a morning drinker but what about the times I was drinking bloody Mary's at 9am oh yeah=morning drinker.
So I guess I fall under the 3 to 4 X's a week.

Binge drinker here

Would go nuts drinking up to a 750ml give or take in a day, spend a few days recovering, rinse repeat.

On really bad day, I would lose a whole day. Seriously, one time it was friday afternoon.... then it was sunday afternoon.... =p

I put every other day, but thats not true. I drank every time I could. The only thing that got in the way of my drinking was work. Since I am an alternating 12 hour shift worker my drinking varied.

The most important thing is that when I wasn't drinking I was wishing I was. That is so stupid and such a waste of what could have been a good life.

Everyday. And since I work at home, I could "close up shop" and start anytime I wanted to. And it was getting earlier and earlier.
