That's where we are different, I didn't look for excuses, I drank. Every day. I would have to have a reason to go home! Usually the reason is I had no more money and no more credit!I think for me it was more about looking for excuses to have a drink.
I never relied on alcohol to help me through bad situations, I would never get home and go “bloody hell, I have to have a drink to get over today.”
I just liked booze a lot and if I could find an excuse to have some, I would.
I was just as likely to have a drink to celebrate a good day or because the sun was shining and it was a nice evening.
I didn't wake up of a morning and think maybe I will have a drink - I worked out when I would get the first of the day.
I didn't drink to hide problems, I drank and problems found me.
I am an alcoholic who has not had a drink since 05/08/2009 - some people say they are "Recovering Alcoholics", I see myself as an alcoholic but a recovered drunk.
