I hope that all who visit or have visited this board are doing well.

gapfan and any one else--

I go up and down about drinking. I might not have a drink for weeks.
Then I might buy some wine and for a few nights I might drink too much. How do I know it is too much? Because once the first glass of wine is downed, the amount I continue to drink seems to be beyond my control.

Once I begin, I guess I don't rationally stop. I stop because it's time to go to bed. Not becouse I feel I've had 'enough'.

I guess I would like 'better ways to cope' (gapfan). How do you all find and enforce for yourself these 'better ways'? I am not going to AA meetings for whatever reasons; I just wonder how you do what you do?
