Welcome!

I'm new here myself and already this great community has given me a huge amount of strength and advice. Two weeks is huge, well done!

Jen, I totally agree about the 'labelers'. There was a time when I told myself I couldn't possibly be an alcoholic because I only drank beer and wine, or I didn't drink in the morning. Alcoholics, we're told, drink spirits all day long and aren't professionals holding down responsible jobs. How wrong that is.

Not so long ago my brother, who also has a drinking problem, told me about one of his friends who had died because of alcohol poisoning, but he qualified it with "but he'd started drinking vodka." We're not okay if we stay away from certain types of alcohol, we need to stay away from alcohol period.
