Hello everyone. I have had a few short stints in recovery, longest being 17 months. I came to this website trying to figure out once and for all if I am REALLY an alcoholic. Denial is an ugly thing I guess. I just want clarity. Thank you all for being here.

Welcome to Newcomers

I replied to your other thread - I still think the better question is 'do I really have a problem with my drinking and if so what can I do about that?

You'll find a lot of support here

Welcome to SR!

Like Dee said, I think it's more important to decide whether or not drinking is affecting you negatively. If it is, then I think the only thing you can do is quit.

I'm glad you're here, should you decide to try sober life again you will find a lot of support here.

Welcome to SR - you will love the support & encouragement you'll find here. I drank all my life, and never realized there were so many who shared my same story. When I stopped feeling alone, I began to heal.

We are here to listen & help. Keep reading & posting - we care about you.
