Re: OCD & Alcohol
I am exactly the same.
I recently put a post about my obsessions and I deal with them with alcohol.
Like youreslf, it is not the taste and I do not feel dependant... I just drink every night and weekend, I can easily drink over a bottle and a half of wine a night minimum.... which is a lot for a woman.
I never thought of it as a part of having OCD, but I myself are worried too that I am slowly going down hill, drinking more and more.
I cannot seem to stop.
I do not know know whether it is a compulsion or a drinking problem.
I know I need to stop, but I don't think I can.
It is such a huge and normal part of my life.
I look around me and I realise that nobody drinks the way I do and therefore it must be a problem.
I do feel I turn to alcohol to relieve my OCD, but am I using that as an excuse? as although my compusive behaviour subsides when drinking, my obsessive side becomes ten times worse and I just switch characters.
I honestly don't know what to suggest, I just want you to know you are not alone.
