My confession: I fell off the wagon

I'm an alcoholic...  not a terribly bad one, but when I drink I almost always take it too far. That is why I do not drink. I've been going through some stuff lately and I have been really depressed, so last night I got two bottles of wine and drank them. I just sat in my living room and drank them. I feel like an idiot, I'm hungover, and I hate myself. 

I'm sure no one cares, but I can't talk to anyone in my real life. It's embarrassing and I feel like a failure.

One day at a time, right? Stop feeling sorry for yourself, that will only lead to more depression. 
When you fall off things the best course of action is to get back up.

There are no levels to alcoholism. If you are an alcoholic, you are just as bad as the alcoholic next to you.

I am the child of an alcoholic. From my experience, you need to get help. Alcoholics can not have a drink. You need to find different methods to deal with stressors.

Good luck.

I know how you feel.  I'm an alcoholic... a terribly bad one.  I have been working on my sobriety but when I have a stressful day at work or fight with my husband, I hit the bottle.  It's embarrassing but you can turn it back around.  Good luck.
