You don't know you have a problem

until you try to stop. What is it about reality that makes people want to drink. Is it that bad? How come life was fine growing up not drinking but at a certain point every occasion needs to have drinks or beers included in order to enjoy it or get through it? Is it the stresses and problems of adulthood? Then why do we drink if there are good things happening?

Is it the insecurity that we feel? That if I have a couple of drinks it will loosen me up and I will be more social. And then over time it takes more and more drinks to loosen up? Until one day you wake up and you are an alcoholic?
