So I don't want to come across as naive or silly, but I'm looking for some opinions on my alcohol consumption. My father is an alcoholic, he's been sober for years now but he had a rough time until then. He wasn't a regular drinker, but a binge drinker, couldn't stop when he started. He's always been protective where drink is concerned and is constantly warning me. I'm worried that I will fall into the same trap. I've never been a big drinker, having been rapes as a teen I don't like the loss of control so I will stop when I feel a certain level of drunk. I don't have worries there, but lately I've been concerned. I've never been able to stand my own company, I get bored and and, smoke more than usual and my mins goes wild thinking of all the things I don't want to. I suffer from depression and anxiety but not seriously bad, I have a good hold on it, I have a long term partner I spend most nights with but on the nights he is working and stays at his and I am alone with no plans I seem to spend it the same way. Drinking an entire bottle of bayleys to myself and going to sleep. The point I will walk from my home, to the shop to buy the bottle because I can't think of any other way to spend my evening. I realise this isn't very good but I've never had problems with drink or gone out that much, I never had the teenage years of getting drunk and passing out or throwing up everywhere so I also don my view it as that bad. It's about once a week at the moment. Sorry for the long post. Thank you
