Livingsober,
I can't believe your psychologist said that!! At the least it is a very insensitive comment to make. Completely irresponsible to, in not so many words, minimize your addiction to alcohol. As Lee mentioned we may have different patterns of drinking but when you can't stop at one drink I call that addiction. And addiction only gets worse over time. I experienced it with my drinking.

Keep posting, keep thinking and working towards sobriety. Make sobriety the most important thing in your life and do what it takes to stay sober. Having someone close by that understands what you are going through can be invaluable in early sobriety. Hang in there!!
