- Self pity
Kristie wrote:I guess I'm too new to figure this out. I have the blue book and I have read it. I didn't think I'm alcoholic and maybe I'm not alcoholic. I searched for answers and found this web site. When I first read this topic at the beginning I started to become convinced that I might be alcoholic. Now as I read through the rest of it I'm not so convinced.
Here is my problem. I drink too much when I drink. My friends have said I could be alcoholic and to check it out. If the first step is the description of an alcoholic and it means my life has to be unmanageable to be an alcoholic I'm not alcoholic. I'm young. I was on honor society in HS. I'm top of my class in college. I'm a successful athlete in sports competition. I have good parents and my family is well adjusted. I grew up in church and have morals and ethics. I haven't missed one day of school since grade school. I work two part time jobs. One job I am manager. I get frequent raises and praises for my work. I have never missed one day of work. I have never been in a bad relationship. I am honest. I don't steal or cheat. I have never been in trouble or had to go to court or to jail. I am happy and I take care of myself. I have many good friends. I have asked my pastor and my parents and my friends if they think my life is unmanageable. They are shocked that I asked them that question. They agree on no being the answer. That means that according to some of the things I have read here that I must not be alcoholic. I do drink too much when I drink. It happens everytime I drink. I go to clubs and parties with my friends and they drink. I intend to only drink one drink but I drink until I throw up or pass out. Can someone here help me to find the answer? Can I still be alcoholic if my life is not unmanageable or not?
