I think I am drinking too much alcohol

I am a chronic alcoholic. Yes, I said it. It’s hard for me to admit this to myself and others but I think it is time for me to stop drinking.

The National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAAA) has established the following guidelines for men and women:

  • Women should have no more than one drink per day or seven drinks per week.
  • Men should have no more than two drinks per day or 14 drinks per week.

These guidelines are also known as “low-risk” drinking limits. Drinking more than this can increase your risk of alcoholism and other health problems, such as liver disease or breast cancer.

I figured it out

You may have just realized that you are drinking too much. If this is the case, then you should stop drinking alcohol immediately. The health risks of excessive drinking are well-documented and can be extremely serious, even fatal. When I realized I was drinking too much alcohol, I stopped right away. Now I feel better than ever!

I want to thank my friend who helped me realize that I needed to stop drinking so much. It was a tough decision at first but now that I have stopped drinking I feel great!

Something clicked inside me now

I have always been a heavy drinker, and I have never thought of myself as an alcoholic. I just assumed that drinking was fun and that it made me feel good. But recently, something clicked inside me and I realized that my drinking has become a problem. It’s gotten to the point where my body is tired all the time, even though it’s only 2 pm on a Tuesday! I don’t know if it’s because of all the drinking or if my body is telling me something else is wrong. Either way though, I think about getting healthy when I am driving around town during the weekdays with nothing to do but think about how much alcohol my body consumed last night at all those bars we went to last night…

I just want to be healthy

  • I have a dream
  • I want to be healthy and live a long life
  • I want to be happy with myself and others around me.

My body is tired

You may be drinking too much if you feel tired all the time, even on days that are not particularly busy. When you have a headache after drinking, it is likely to be accompanied by a pounding sensation in your temples and nausea. If your hangover gets worse every time you drink, this could indicate an alcohol problem. Some people develop a fever when they drink too much alcohol and their bodies are fighting off the effects of intoxication; if this is happening to you, it could mean that your body is trying to rid itself of excess toxins caused by excessive alcohol consumption. Passing out from drinking too much alcohol can be dangerous because it puts your health at risk—if this happens while driving or engaging in other potentially dangerous situations, being able to recognize warning signs will help ensure that nobody else gets hurt as well as yourself!

It’s not easy to stop but it’s worth the effort

If you’ve been drinking a lot of alcohol and want to stop, it can seem like an overwhelming challenge. It’s difficult because:

  • You can lose control over how much or how often you drink.
    Your friends and family may not understand your decision. They may try to make you drink again.
    It will take time to feel better without alcohol – at first, things might seem worse before they get better.

However, if you stick with it and work hard on your new habits, things will get easier as time goes by!


I know that many people struggle with drinking too much alcohol. It’s not easy to stop but it’s worth the effort. I hope that my story will help others who are struggling with this problem.
