I have decided to join this site in hope to get support from people, who too, are trying ot quit drinking, to get a better quality of life. I have been drinking a bottle of wine every night for years now and every now and then can be two. I have never understood why I wanted to drink at night until recently. I think It is to drown out the reality of being a single parent and not having a partner in my life. I can't do this anymore as it is clouding my judgement on the people I date (I have so much bad luck in this department), it makes me feel tired the next day and unable to think properly at work and recently, I have noticed I have been feeling depressed. I can't say that it has gotten in the way of my relationship with my child as I make sure he doesn't see me drinking most of the time. The only way it would affect our relationship is by taking my time away from him at night because I get tired and too relaxed to do anything with him. Can anyone identify with this situation? If so, it would be great to hear your story.
