Okay, I think some of us need this thread. I definitely do.
I won’t bang on about it in here because I have done so elsewhere a lot, but I need to cut back on the booze. Not the regularity with which I drink (I can go for weeks without boozing), but a few times a year I overdo it and there are terrible consequences, mentally mainly, but also relationship-wise.
I tend to want to be the last person standing in these situations and often end up blacking out or being abusive. I find it really hard to say no to just one more. I need to cut back: either do more going out and not boozing, drinking less, alternating with softs / NA beers, whatever. I need to find something that works for me, and I want to talk about it and get support because it’s hard.
Please share your experiences / current boozing woes in this thread.
Goes without saying this is an #ssp thread.
