So here I am, no idea what to write so just going to come straight out with it. I have a drink problem and I can finally see it. My wife has warned me for years but never really paid much attention to it as I always thought you have to be drinking every day. When I do drink I can consume far too much, I have no control over my life when I do drink and worst of all I have had one night stands which luckily my wife has forgiven me for. This is not who I am when I sober but I do drink to forget, its either all or nothing. I'm former military and it's a common culture amongst serving members and ex serving. I been a civilian for just over 3 years now and I'm not going to lie it's been a struggle to go from military to civilian, not so much work wise but friends and more so a sense of belonging and purpose. I need to stop not only for the sake of my health but my son and wife. Always seems so obvious even when you know whats at stake but doing it is completely different ball game.
So yep thats me, nice to meet you all.
