From Drinking Moderation To Escalation Initially we may drink alcohol moderately, as a reward, way of unwinding, relaxing, to relieve pressure, change our mood, the way we feel - maybe not liking ourself. Things may build up inside and we have used alcohol to mask these. What started off as being enjoyable, having a positive effect, may have become out of balance, detrimental, as we become more of a heavy drinker. We may have get caught in something we find hard to manage and turn to our familiar "comfort", so drinking alcohol gives us a structure to fall back on, becomes a crutch or a sedative to dull everything, get us off to sleep or be sexual. At some level we may get on with our life, yet we may feel scared inside, lacking our own structure, which may also point to an unhelpful relationship style. We may want to stop drinking, yet we let the lure of alcohol to take over. Our drinking routine may have begun to take priority over other activities. Used to blocking things out and turning to alcohol for some time now, we might as well continue drinking, "what the hell" - may be what we tell ourselves. By now we may have an alcohol problem, alcohol addiction, which we struggle to acknowledge. A part of us may deny we have any alcohol problems, yet another part, wanting to change our life, may now be seeking alcohol treatment, alcohol counselling.

Our level of drinking alcohol may be social, sporadic (binge drinking), heavy at times, problematic or too dependent. Our alcohol dependence now gives us a strong desire for alcohol, as we spend a lot of our time wherever we can where alcohol is available. It is as if we have to follow our urges, as our thinking and concentration becomes distorted and we shut things out. Getting slowly or blind drunk may have increased. Disconnected, we may have neglected other needs, pleasures, interests and relationships with those close to us, including our partner. "I can cope, or stop anytime I want to" may be our mantra. We may also experience loneliness, loss, anxiety depression and low self-esteem, as our moods rise and fall. Anger may play a role. Bypassing our conscious choices, we may have become slowly addicted to alcohol and now seek alcohol treatment, alcohol counselling.

Effects Of Drinking Alcohol Alcohol problems affect all of us, no matter what our education, profession or class. Over time we may have developed a physical or psychological dependence on alcohol, struggling to control our alcohol consumption. Apart from the range of health and physical effects, our level of drinking may also affect our work and relationships as the quality of our life declines. Sexual problems may also increase. We may slowly become isolated from our family and friends, and become increasingly lonely - even in the company of others. Conflict with those close to us may escalate and we may deny that the impact of our drinking affects other struggles we now have. We may also have financial difficulties or suffer the legal consequences of our drinking, e.g. drink driving. Alienated inside, we may also experience the world as alienating. As our levels of drinking increase, so too does the risk to our health and safety. We may have become permanently tired, forgetful, put off things, or not complete them. Alcoholics - we will never be one of them, so we may battle inside between not needing any alcoholism treatment, yet also realise help with our alcohol problem is exactly what we need.

We may now be in trouble with our drinking, whatever label we give to it: alcoholics, binge drinking, drinking problem, alcohol concern, alcohol problems, alcohol dependency, alcohol compulsion, drinking addiction, alcohol addiction, alcoholism. We may consistently hide, and often forget, what we do. We may begin to use alcohol as our "treat" (despite another voice inside saying "No"), an outlet for other difficulties we struggle to face. In despair, hungry inside we may turn to drink to try and fill this emptiness or anguish. A feeling builds up that we have to drink, and a red mist can come upon us. "Whatever I'm doing, wherever I'm going, where can I get a drink" may be our preoccupation. Becoming a shadow of who we were, our very identity can become interlinked with our drinking, as if we become attached to it and can't let go. Guilt, shame and self-hatred may be our companions. Our need for a drink may stop us taking care of our other needs, as if nothing else, no consequences really matter any more, as darkness may come over us. We may want to wake up and feel OK again, yet underlying feelings, e.g. our loss or grief, may be in the background. Despite previous promises to stop drinking, our problems with alcohol may have accelerated as a way of managing our pain. Hitting a wall and passing through it, we may be drinking ourselves towards oblivion, questioning how to stop drinking, seeking alcohol treatment, alcohol counselling.

Alcohol Dependency Counselling Alcohol may have a vice-like grip on us and we may be seeking alcohol counselling, whether of not we are addicted to alcohol or have an alcohol dependency. Each person's story is unique as is their road to a recovery in stopping or moderating drinking alongside overcoming underlying issues. Some of us will need to learn to cut down through mindful drinking (drink response-ability). Others to stop drinking entirely (alcohol abstinence). Either way we need to manage our triggers, no longer allow alcohol to dominate our life and alongside alcohol-free days, have plans, concrete, clear rules if, how, when we drink. We also need strategies for socialising differently, turning our life around. (See also Overcoming An Addiction)
