If you are struggling with alcohol you may ask: “Will I ever be able to have a couple of glasses of wine with dinner? Do I need to stop drinking forever?”
The answer is not a mystery. How many times have you managed to stop at two drinks recently? How did that happen? What was different about those times compared with the times that lead to binges? What enable you to stop? Did anyone help? What was happening in your lives at the time when you stopped? What were you thinking and feeling at that time? Can you replicate this in future? Would something prevent you? On a scale of 1 to 10, how willing are you to stop at two drinks? On a scale of 1 to 10, how confident are you that you can do it? The answer to these and other questions will help you find out whether you can drink again. And, if so, how much.
