Alcoholism: It's occurred to me that I've spent the better part of the entire week (Wednesday through to Sunday evening and prior to that, a large chunk of the previous week) on alcohol. I am starting to wonder if I seriously do have a problem. While I've always been a good time girl and never need encouragement to go out / have fun / be the last person standing, I'm wondering what effect this is actually having on my head, my finances, my relationship with my friends and people close around to me. In short, I wish I could spend some time away from the bottle but it is such an entrenched part of society, especially in London. When I have those rare days of not having drunk (ie, chilling with specific friends, doing things I also enjoy, ie, drowning self in culture, or whatever), I find I feel really really great about things... And in turn, am kinder to self etc.
Is this self loathing, is it alcoholism in disguise, or am I just being an emo-self absorbed drama queen?
I am curious to know how often you drink, how old you are, and how much you tend to drink in a session.
Cheers (no pun intended).
