Wesking,I'm glad to hear that you finally told your wife what's been going on. It is important to be honest.However, I'm going to say some things here and I may get flamed (hopefully not) and they are probably going to be things you don't want to hear but.....If you are truly alcoholic (a lot of us can't spell <g>) you will not be able to stop on your own. That is the nature of the disease. The person has lost the ability to control their drinking. You may not be alocholic. I can't answer that for you, only you can. My personal experience has been that I tried 3 times to quit. Twice on my own. It was sheer hell. I was ready to commit myself to the psych ward because I was so miserable and wanted so badly to drink, but knew what would happen if I did. I finally got sober and stayed sober by coming to AA. It was easier to do it with the love and support of a Higher Power and the other members of AA. These are people who understand me and love me anyway. I can only again suggest that you try Mike's suggestion of going to 90 meetings for 90 days. If you feel then that you want to do it on your own you can at least say you gave AA a try.Good luck and post again. We want to know that you are doing okay.
