By careful calculation and thoughtful choice, I am no longer on a particular wagon and I'm OK with it.
I think its been helping.

I have some big news coming in ten days time!

Well, not so big really, but I thought it strange that the first thing I thought of when I realised what date was approaching was this old thread!

The 13th of June 2009 was the last time I had an alcoholic drink.

!0 years without is quite an achievement for an alcoholic.
You're still an alcoholic and always will be, according to the AA members I've talked to. Right?

I'm sure that for some folk AA is the greatest organisation ever but it's really not for me. Ten seconds at their website had me cringing.

I definitely don't think of myself as an alcoholic. I don't think about the stuff, never feel like I need it and certainly never crave it. I'm happy sitting with people who are drinking without ever feeling like I'm missing out. I don't feel like I'm having to 'control' myself - I'm just not a drinker anymore.

That said, who knows what I would be like if I actually tried a drink. I'm as certain as I can be that I could have a glass of wine or a beer without it being a problem but for the moment at least that doesn't seem like a risk worth taking.

I've never been to their site, only know their dogma from hearing it repeatedly from people I've worked with over the years. I accepted their word for it as it didn't affect me either way.
I suppose like everything else, it won't work for everyone, but I'm glad you found what worked for you.

Puking all over the Bar is what did it for me, I get violently ill when i get drunk. I've been sober for 41 years, and I never did AA.
