My parents are alcoholics, but I only see them every 3 yrs. My brother is an alcoholic, but I only see him every 5 yrs. My husband and his family do not drink, so I am really not around it anymore,but all I can think about is an excuse to have a drink. I wake up thinking about wine. I love to drink! But it disrupts my life and makes me disfunctional and stupid. I hate hangovers. I hide my drinking well, and I have to. I have 3 kids, 3, 7 and 14. Sometimes they make me nuts, so I drink to chill out. I never hurt them, and I consider myself a pretty good mom and wife. Why can't I stop drinking? I'm not sure that I want too, though! I like it too much! Is an average 3 bottles of wine a week for about 6 years too much? Do I have to stop all the way? Does anyone ever just "reduce" drinking rather than quit? Or is it impossible as an alcoholic to control it?

I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
