How to Know if You Have a Problem — 21 Comments

  1. Wow. This is pretty impressive. You know that, right? Not that it’s a thoughtful list but because you had the guts to put it all out there, being honest with everyone and sharing the wisdom you’ve gained along the way.
    THAT is impressive.
    I only do #11 if the drinks are spectacularly delicious and I bought the booze. Like when I made everyone Gingersnaps at Christmas and only my sister and I liked them.

    • Thank you, Erica. May as well let it all hang out, if my looking like a selfish doofus may help someone – that’s my philosophy.
      And I think you’re safe – EVERYBODY would do #11 under the conditions you specify! 😉

  2. I’m with Cheryl. It would be great to do without #8. And I only do #3 on Saturdays when I’m taste testing my Saturday cocktail because you know…I need to get that post out before noon. It’s just dedication.

  3. Great job! What’s good about this list is you can plug just about any problematic behavior into it and it would be accurate with that problem too!
    I ran the whole race with alcohol and very blessed to still be alive today.

  4. Is it weird that I can replace drinking with food and it applies to me? Although I haven’t ODed (at least not hospitalized) for a food binge yet.

    Good advice. I hope the right people see it.

    • No, not weird at all…I love me some good eats, too, and have used food inappropriately in the past; hence, the “freshman fifty” (you heard that right – “freshman fifteen” is for lightweights). The only difference was the food didn’t try to kill me or make me a rotting excuse for a human being…;)

    • I am so with you there with the food replacement, Chris! Just because the saltines are wheat, doesn’t mean I can eat half the box in one sitting.

      Also, in all seriousness, this is a great list. You’re brave for putting it out there.

  5. I know a few friends of Bill. Been down that road in a couple of ways. My big problem- pizza.

    If it stands in front of me, it must be consumed. Oy.

    Not as serious as alcohol, but…

      • Ever had someone order pizza and it’s less than one slice apiece, and they cut the slices in half? Reminds me of a person who would leave half a $40 shot of Tequila on the bar and leave. How do they do that? Pizza is like alcohol with me, it’s either a six piece minimum or I don’t eat it. Same with alcohol, if I can’t get enough of it, I don’t drink it. Trust me, I don’t want to go there ever again. 🙁 I still eat pizza for sure, but at least I can get enough of it to taste it. 🙂
