As with a lot of people, I enjoy the odd drink, my father was an alcoholic and having recently become a father myself, it's caused a reflective state of mind on how I handle myself and my habits. And the main thing I worry about is am I an alcoholic, and if so how can I get my way off these tracks, and if not, how can I keep it that way.
I'm 27, I work hard everyday, I would happily admit I'm addicted to coffee, and drink ridiculous amounts a day. Alcohol for me, I don't binge drink, I don't drink in excess at a given time, but I do have a small 330ml can of beer EVERY day, which at a maximum will be two, if it's a holiday or a special occasion. From what I have experienced through my father I would be inclined to say, I'm not on the heavy end of the scale, but then again, what makes me worry is the fact that I habitually have a can of beer everyday, if you were to ask me when was the last time I felt drunk, I couldn't say, because I never let myself get past the 'well that was a nice little treat' phase, but at the same time if you were to ask me when was the last time I had gone a day without having a drink, I equally couldn't tell you, because a small can after dinner has become such a habitual routine that it is a part of daily life.
I don't live in the UK anymore and it is night here and I need to get to bed ready for an early morning and therefore won't be able to read or reply to anything in the immediate time frame, but will be interested to read what people have to say / recommend when I wake up.
Thank you for taking the time to read,
