I use to drink a lot. Everyday almost, including getting up early in the morning to get drunk until I fell asleep and waking up to do it all over again. I gradually weaned down. I went to treatment but left and continued to drink, though not nearly as heavy. Now I only drink once and a while and it's not much when I do. My stomach can no longer take it and I now have a life without it. It seems to work well this way. So, is it possible for me to live this way without treatment? I just don't drink that much anymore. It makes me so sick when I do that I can't stand it! I don't know if I should be in treatment or even talk about it anymore. To be honest, it brings me down when I talk about it. I have enough to bring me down as it is. I don't feel that I'm cured but I do feel that I can't possibly drink hardly at all. I am in therapy as well. Is this a good thing? Should I still consider AA, even if my life is much better?
