I have struggled with alcohol for some time. Took me a while to realise I even had a problem but then it began to cause problems all over my life. I tried to cut down and couldn't. My Dr referred me to a counsellor. It has been (and still is) a bumpy ride. Sad to say despite everything I really believed drinking is the greatest thing and it was the highlight of my life. I am a binger so my counsellor realised it's easier for me to decrease my drinking days than limit the amount. I have got down to 1 or 2 days a week now and I could never have believed how much more fulfilling and enjoyable my life is. Yesterday I had the opportunity to drink and chose not to but not because I thought I shouldn't but because I preferred to do something else!!!! I thought I would share this so people who want to cut down but simultaneously feel are depriving themselves - you aren't! My counsellor likened it to ending a bad relationship.
