I really didn’t know if I was an alcoholic until I answered these 20 AA questions. I kinda vaguely thought I might have a drinking problem. I answered three or more of these questions Yes which is supposed to mean you are definitely an alcoholic.
I posted this because someone was wondering if they might be an alcoholic in another thread.
This is why I keep attending meetings.
3/20 im not an alcoholic. But i have potential to abuse substances
Couple years off the bottle, had a one off slip, and a few years before that.
Yes I am, And that’s ok. I stay away from it now.
I remember flashes and glimpses of years of hard drinking. I was so bad I would wake up to the shakes in the middle of the night, just needing a few extra shots too sleep.
I’m lucky I didn’t kill myself, or anyone else with my recklessness.
I know I’m an alcoholic. I do my best to avoid the sauce these days.
Because when I get too saucy I’ll tell you all I love you. And if I get saucier I lose my marbles!
Old AA line that always stuck with me.
“Some people drink to unwind. I drink to completely unravel.” Lol
You don’t love me?!?
Yeah! That’s very true for a lot of alcoholics.
I used to get drunk to numb the voices. It took me years to realize it just made everything worse. Two trips to rehab knocked my hard noggin really well!
Oh I do love all of you!
I was just being silly my favorite couch bug.
You’re my fave bedbug.
Same here beetle buddy, I also drank the most when unmedicated and symptomatic.
Hard to hear voices when you’re in a coma from alcohol poisoning.
