Hi there, I am a 35 year old female with two children. I have various medical conditions... type 1 diabetes, crohns disease (though in remission), depression and gastroparesis.
On various occasions and by various health proffesionals I have been labelled an alcoholic... I refuse to believe this.....
I do drink most days.... sometimes vodka, sometimes wine, sometimes cider... I do not drink until I feel drunk though I know I do drink more than the advised units per day.... I have learned when to stop providing I dont drink too much... the more I drink the more I want to drink.
I cannot imaginr going out and not drinking.. though it is very rare I go anywhere these days... I drink alone 5 nights out of seven... I am convinced I could stop though always seem to find an excuse to buy it even though money is an issue.
I dont want to stop drinking... I enjoy it... its one of the few pleasures in life..
However.... I NEVER wake up and want or feel the need to drink in the morning.... its normally about 5 pm when the urge come on...
Do I have a problem or am I just lonely and bored??
My councellor and diabetic nurse think I am an alcoholic but I do not get withdrawal syptoms and like i say I wouldnt dream of drinking in the morning.
Your thoughts would be greatly appreciated.
