Ok got a weird question

How do I know I am a high functioning alcoholic or just a regular functioning alcoholic? I function pretty well in what I have to do but it's not much when you think about it. I know I could achieve way more in my life if I weren't and maybe soar professionally. How do you decide enough is enough? I appreciate any support coming my way, I hate it, yet I still overdo it. Every fucking time.

Is It Normal?

  • It's a matter of priorities. Do you feel you're missing out on achieving things important to you because of your drinking?
    (Work goals? Relationships?)

  • You are not high functioning enough to tell if you’re high functioning.

    You answered your own question.

  • I think its not that important which label applies to you better but you know you're better off giving it up.

      • I was assuming you're the guy who asks alcohol questions alot. You said you drink everyday. You know that shit aint no good.

  • I second getting to an AA meeting. Try not to let the God stuff put you off. It'll make sense in time. You choose your own higher power, it can even be a dog. They just say God for the ease of it.

  • I think you asking this is enough of a sign you need to stop drinking. I had to stop because of medication, but it's the best thing I ever did.

  • Wtf? This is offensive, as well as highly insensitive to people struggling alcoholism.

    What kind of human being are you?

    • How is it even vaguely offensive to wonder if one drinks too much?
      Its a normal concern to have and the first step of healing from an addiction is realizing you might have a problem in the first place.
      You sound kinda like an addict in denial.

      • Because he's using the tragedy of alcoholism for his troll posts, stupid.

        You sound like an addict, because only an addict would be this oblivious.
