I've recently come to the realization that while I'm not an alcoholic, I'm definitely headed towards having a problem with binge drinking. I have known many alcoholics before and my behavior is very different to theirs. Among many of my friends binge drinking on the weekends is the norm though. I am finding that I am often binge drinking on weekday nights, as well as weekends. I have put a stop to that and I am aiming to 'drink in moderation'. I found the recommended maximum for an adult woman is said to be maximum seven drinks a week, with no more than three in any one session. So far this past week I've had one - when my partner brought a bottle home for me. I sipped it alternating with my water bottle so that I wasn't tempted to knock it back quickly, as is my usual style. I think the important thing for me will be the 'no more than three in any session'. Has anyone had a problem with binge drinking and tried drinking in moderation? I understand this approach might not work for me, and I might need to abstain altogether. I'm going to give it a try though as I would like to be able to be moderate about it. I will see how things go though!
