My addiction came to be when I started liking wine and mixed drinks. I didn’t really think I had a drinking problem until I started drinking too much. I started going to the bars and buying wine coolers and beer and all kinds of drinks. Sometimes I think I did it to have a good time, but in the end I wasn’t really having a good time, and I made myself miserable. Sometimes I think I drank to escape reality but in the end it was just plain depressing and debilitating. I just wasn’t having any fun anymore. It was getting more and more out of hand.
