Resumé of the amount of empty bottles of wine this week (and hé – the week hasn’t ended yet) – 9 bottles.
According to the labels the bottles contain between 7-8 standards standard drinks.
Taking the 8 – which is fair, as I had a few drinks outside my safe home – will bring the total at present to 9 * 8 = 72, which is way more than the 14 units they advise is healthy for women.
Have read quite a few books in the last couple of weeks about this subject and started a 4th today
- Drink : the intimate relationship between women and alcohol (Susan Nolan-Hoeksema)
- The sober revolution (Sarah Turner)
- Cleaning up : how I gave up drinking and lived (Tania Glyde)
- Mrs D is Going Without (Lotta Dann)
So much to recognise, especially the guilt, the guilt, the guilt and angst.
When will I make the decision as I’m starting to realise I am one of those who can’t control the drinking?
