I am a stay at home mom and I think I am an alcoholic. I never used to be like this. I used to just drink on the weekends with my friends, maybe 1 or 2 nights socially during the week, but I went to work everyday and it did not affect my life. Fast forward four years, I now live in a different state from my friends and family (with my husband and child) and now I drink every night. Does that make me an alcoholic? I don't feel physical needs to have a drink, it just has become a routine and I think I would die of boredom if I didn't. I actually look foreward to when it is an "OK" time of the day to start drinking. That time was never before 5pm, but lately I find myself making excuses to start earlier. Does that make me an alcoholic? This is my first entry and I would love to hear from anyone in the same or similar situation or from anyone with any helpful advice.
