Fuck Labels!

Yesterday, I was finally able to figure out why I have never been able to click with AA or call myself an alcoholic. Let me put it this way, I do drink, and when I do, it’s no surprise that I always binge for a couple of days. The thing about my drinking is, that when I do it, I only do it on some, not every, some weekends and never on workdays. As a matter of fact, I can go months without any alcohol and don’t even miss it. I believe that the problem lies, when society and the medical community classifies someone like me as an alcoholic.

To be honest, one thing that I did learn from my research was, that even though I occasionally binge drink, I worry way too fucking much what society and the medical community labels me as, and I have to stop that shit and worry about really important things. Sometimes I do feel that my worrying stems from my OCD, but I really can’t say for sure. So now you know the reason, why you won’t see me posting a lot about drinking and shit.

  1. I think a lot of people are realizing the label “alcoholic” can be harmful in a few ways. One being that many people never end up getting the help they need because they are “gray area” drinkers who don’t fit the stereotype.

  2. Technically, I guess medically I’d be called an alcoholic. I’m the same as you with the drinking. I don’t do it during the week only weekends and then it could be 0 to 2 litres of vodka between me and the bf + some. But they say it’s the binging. So even if we don’t drink we make up for it. I don’t know about you though but I go through moods. Sometimes I cbf. And that’s when I think I’m definitely not an alcoholic.
