I'm in my mid 30's and i've had a problem with binge drinking for the last 10 years. i only drink white wine and i only drink alone. I started drinking when i was between jobs. At various times i have become worried about the volume i drink and i've always cut down, usually i will average about 1 & 1/2 bottles in the evening if i have the next day off work. Problems at work recently have made my drinking worse - I now drink in the evenings and have turned up to work with hangovers. I have been off work using some of my leave for the past 2 weeks and i have drunk 4 times 3 bottles each time. Although i've always known my drinking is excessive and have read various forums i have always been put off seeking help as everyone elses problems always seem to be far worse than mine and I didn't want to seem to be making a mountain out of a mole hill. I haven't had any bad side effects from my drinking (health, work, etc) but i've got to the point where i now realise that i'm giving up the chance of a healthy social life just to stay in and drink. I dont want to go to AA or tell my GP if i can help it. But i dont know where to begin helping myself! Any advice would be appreciated.
