I'm an alcoholic. Especially after reading any of Coottie's posts, I truly knwo I am...not that I ever doubting I wasn't. I've been lurking in the RR forum for a couple of years now under my husband account. I finally decided to get my own account without him knowing because I don't know how to get us both to stop our alcohol problems. With the drinking comes the weed and as of last year, pills came into play. Being drunk together is all we've ever known and it's been over a decade of it. I've stopped smoking weed before and have been battling the pills, but have been doing well. But this darn drinking I can't let go of. 4 years ago I was able to keep it to only weekends for about 2 months. This was a shining moment for me. The big problem is, it doesn't ruin my daily life (per say). I've never missed work, my family/friends would never suspect I drink EVERY SINGLE NIGHT. And have been doing so for 13 years. I look good, I work Mon-Fri, I have it all going for me....how do I stop.....especially with a drinking buddy for a husband that feels it's ok to be drinking every night.
