My Mrs. has made me paranoid about drinking, i used to drink every day back in July / August last year - and this was only ever 2-3 beers after work max.
Then i went to 2-3 times a week from september to around december - again only 1 or 2 beers OR 1 or 2 double jack daniels and coke.
Since january i have had alcohol about 5 times in total but never really get drunk - only 1 or 2 drinks. The last time I was actually drunk was new years eve just gone. Other than that id be lucky to get even tipsy.
Whenever I DO have these few drinks I always get remarks like "i hate you drinking" or "your an alcoholic" or "take the drink out of the house you have a drinking problem"
So to stop all the grief I get over 1 or 2 drinks from time to time I stick to Jack Daniels as it hides in the coke mix, however she has even gone to lengths of smelling each drink... its like living with a detective.
So now ive even gone to "hiding" it upstairs hoping she would just leave off - but she is truly relentless... she looks everywhere.
I do like a drink, I never think of it before 6pm unless its a weekend or im really bored at home. I work full time and its never effected me financially. I am not violent on it, not one bit - the only difference is im happier then sleepier.... and if she hits a nerve with me or she is in a bad mood i go off the rails easier in an arguement and my fuse is slightly shorter but only when provoked.
1) Is this me being paranoid?
2) have i actually got a drinking problem but in denial?
3) is she just an intolerant nasty piece of work who wants to stop be having a few drinks just because she hates the smell of it and doesnt drink herself?
I have no clue and would really appreciate your opinions.
