I was not drinking at all for 2 weeks. I had to craving to drink or none of that. my main reason I stop drinking completely is to be healthier and lose weight. I used to drink beer, my trainer said if you go out and have to drink, try vodka and only two drinks. So I am not used to drinking liquor I really dont like it. anyhow it was a coworkers bday I went out with her and her friends. I end up drinking way too much. I was driving and I did get in a wreck. didnt hurt no one but myself. I went out on a curve. I was so lucky not to get a dwi. I had left my car there, so cops showed up to my house and yelled at me. I was in tears, I am still having a hard time believing what happened. I already been in trouble once so I do have a DWI that I havent even been to court yet. I feel like dying... I dont drink every day, if I drink it was more like social. but I am starting to believe I do have a problem it seems I dont know how to drink and stop when I am already feeling buzzing. I hate myself for this, once again I put my family in a situation that no one wants to be. at one point I started thinking I should had died in this accident. which I did went unconscious for like 2 hrs. I am in so much trouble money wise. my car didnt get totaled but it needs mechanic work and bodyshop work. I feel very ashamed, and I dont know what to do. or how to get help. I am very embarrassed, I let myself down. and everyone else that knows I already been thru a dwi once. so Am I an alchoholic??? I dont feel like drinking everyday. I dont have cravings. I actually was doing pretty good having this healthy life style change. all it took me was one mistake. one time I slipped. and I am back in feeling depressed, worried, sad, thinking so little of me. please any advise, comments. thank you.View Thread
