Hello everyone, my name is David, and I am an alcoholic.
In fact, I have been one nearly non-stop since 1993. I quit for a few months around 2000, and for a few weeks in 2004. I thought I could control it, stopped drinking on nights before I had to work, but the catch is I drank even more on days off.
At any rate, there was a disagreement a couple of nights ago between me and a family member where I said and did some things I don't recall doing. The police were called, and I was really lucky something worse didn't happen, was also lucky they didn't throw me in the drunk tank.
I've had a few black-outs over the years, lots of crazy stuff I have done that I should be dead from. Guess there is someone looking out for me.
I've had enough, and am checking into what I can do about some rehab, and have looked into joining AA somewhere local. Looking like I will have to go out of town for that though.
Thanks for reading.
