I've been drinking in moderation for almost a year(partly because of a pill ovedose that really messed up my body and left me having to suffer horrible hangovers when I get really drunk) yet everybody is still openly calling me an alcoholic. My ex girlfriend says she'll only get together with me again if I completely stop drinking which is ridicolous(and also really hypocritical since she's a shrooms dealer-but apparently that disgusting stuff is ok because it's healing or something). My doctor also thinks I'm still an alcoholic and told me to go to rehab and that I'm doing serious damage to my body. My sister still doesn't want to talk to me untill I stop drinking. I think the whole thing is ridicolous. Untill a year ago I used to drink all day long and end every day in a blackout. I used to drink a quart and a half of whiskey(or more) or its equivalent in other drinks every day. Now I only have two drinking sessions a day. I drink a litre of wine in the moring and two litres at night. At no point in the day am I drunk(at night it's usually barely enough to make me fall asleep). Only about 4-5 times a month do I get really drunk(usually out with friends). I now do a lot of stuff I couldn't do when I was drinking all day every day; I read books watch documentaries, play sports etc. How do I get it through to people that I am not an alcoholic anymore? It's like they want to keep me in that bracket for some reason even though my drinking is not having an effect on them anymore(not that it did when I was drinking hard either, just occasion loans and being slightly more dramatic-never hurtful though). I'm never gonna totally stop drinking because I enjoy it way too much so that's not an option. Can any of you guys help me with this? Also I'm sorry if I posted this in the wrong category, I'm kinda new to this. Thanks for your advice.
