Hi, I just wanted to say Hi to everyone. I don't concider myself an 'Alcoholic" I don't need to drink every day...but I do get out of hand a lot. Blacking out around twice a week. Last weekend my on again-off again bf and I got into a fight and we both blacked out, the cops came and apparently I hit him, bruised his lip, and now the police are charging me with assult, even though he didn't want to press charges. I am so scared of getting a criminal record and never being able to get a good job again. I decided to stop drinking, and to stop hanging out with my friends' who are bad influences. It's my first Friday night not drinking. (6th day sober) My bf was supposed to hang out with me tonight for the first time since the fight but instead he ditched me and said that he wanted to go out with the guys and thought it was better. So now he is at the bars getting drunk with his friend's and I am here alone. Anyway I feel very proud that I am still home and despite all the other problems I am having I am watching tv instead of drinking and going to the bars with my friends. I am still confused though, and bored out of my mind. I hope I can handle tomorrow night as well! Thanks for listening.
