It's been very helpful reading others' experiences so I thought posting about mine might help someone else, here's hoping! So, I'm a male in my late forties and have become used to drinking every day, mainly wine, no spirits (too easy to go way too far with no warning) and some beers. My gorgeous wife has had enough, I'm very restless in bed when sleeping after too much alcohol and I'm keeping her awake, this means she's (quite rightly) annoyed and tired, and it's my fault. So I feel guilty, ashamed, and say to myself enough is enough, let's just stop drinking. But I don't, and I don't understand why it's so difficult. I see the numerous benefits in stopping but then the evening comes and I think I'd like a drink to relax and so on, and so on, and there you go, you've done it again! I need to get out of this loop, for the sake of my family if for no other reason (and there are many). Anyway, this is my starter post, I intend to add more as I go along trying to reduce or even stop altogether (which I struggle to imagine right now, but anything's possible, right?) It's such a love/hate relationship, love how it feels (initially) and hate what it does to those around me.
