i really enjoy reading almost all of the discussion threads on the diet and weight management community because i feel like most of those people are in a very similar situation as me, thus their advice, struggles, etc help me understand my own issues and give me strength in the battle with weight loss. but, in this community i feel like i don't resemble many people here. i like reading your posts because addiction is a topic that fascinates me, even though i feel like i am not an alcoholic. my main problem is that i need to drink to have fun and that when i do drink i almost always end up saying or doing something i regret. thus, i see myself as more of a problem drinker, and because of that i should avoid alcohol altogether, which is hard because i have problems enjoying going out while not drinking. that said, maybe i'm just thinking to narrow mindedly about the definition of an alcoholic. maybe i am one maybe i'm not, but the bottom line is i would really like someone to be a buddy with me who is in a similar boat as myself: that you don't drink everyday or even once a week, but if and when you do drink it causes problems in your life because you say or do things to friends, family, etc. also, because i am a graduate student and don't have a family i am so very often in situaitons where i am expected to go out to a bar in order to be social with my peers. i can't go out to a bar and not drink because i get EXTREMELY bored so sometimes i avoid seeing people altogether.
