    Hey everyone,

    First of all I just want to say thank you for reading my words. It is so nice to have a website to share my thoughts and feelings on.

    My story: I started drinking pretty heavy in college. Getting drunk on the weekends to start, then eventually getting drunk a few weekdays and weekends to boot. Hey, why not, its college… everyone does it right. Well I graduated college but my habit of drinking has stayed with me, and I am now 31 years old.

    Right now I am holding my life together ok with still drinking…. My entire week revolves around the next time I will be able to get drunk. I work full time, am married, own a home etc. But drinking is really taking a toll on my marriage and my job and my health. The control I used to have with my drinking has slowly gone away, I used to NEVER call in sick because I wanted to get drunk or had a hangover. I used to NEVER drink when I didnt feel like it just because I had the time. I could go on and on about what has changed this year for the worse with my drinking…

    I am not sure if I would be labeled an alcoholic, and I am not sure that even matters. The point is alcohol is very negatively effecting my life and I am scared, because I am losing control. I dont drink for fun, I just drink because its what I do… I am not a daily drinker probably 4 out of 7 days or so, and I only drink beer, about 14-17 a time….

    Well July 4th sounded like a good day to have my last drink. Here to share my thoughts, feelings, fears and hopes with all you…

    Take care
