I have been drinking 20+ beers 5 out of 7 days for the last 3 years. Most of the time I drink over 24 beers. In the same time my salary has went from 60k to 130k. Also, my personal life went from gf to nada!
I just left my job because it enables my drinking. I perform extremely well but at times have been very short tempered while intoxicated. I told a few of my supervisors that I had drinking issues on many occassions. When i finally left the company emailed me telling me to 'come back soon'.
I am a functioning drinker. I can do my job sober or drunk. When I get drunk it is hard to tell. With that said i am ruining my life. My body is suffering. And no matter what i tell myself my work is suffering. Enabling is bad and mostly comes from family members. But sometimes it comes from outside influences. And when enabling is tied to high pay and bonuses it is a very bad thing.
I quit my job and am going to visit family. It was a tough decision. But the right one.
Be strong everyone. There are a ton of reasons to be weak. But zero good ones.
