It is admirable that you would like to help suffering alcoholics, and I don't wish to deter you, however the sort of drinking you have explained to be your habit, may not be that of an alcoholic. The following from our Big Book may explain it further :-" Moderate drinkers have little trouble in giving up
liquor entirely if they have good reason for it. They
can take it or leave it alone.
Then we have a certain type of hard drinker. He
may have the habit badly enough to gradually impair
him physically and mentally. It may cause him to die
a few years before his time. If a sufficiently strong reason—
ill health, falling in love, change of environment,
or the warning of a doctor—becomes operative, this
man can also stop or moderate, although he may find
it difficult and troublesome and may even need medical
But what about the real alcoholic? He may start off
as a moderate drinker; he may or may not become a
continuous hard drinker; but at some stage of his
drinking career he begins to lose all control of his
liquor consumption, once he starts to drink".
This is a section from pages 20 & 21, and you may view a pdf version of the book online for further information. But basically what it says, and what is true of alcoholics who use this site, is that even if a doctor said stop or you will die, we would be unable to do this without spiritual help. It seems you didn't have that much trouble stopping, and you say "once I had a couple drinks and a second time more than a few", both of them being in April, well an alcoholic can't do that, we just would not be able to stop at a couple. Perhaps you can look at the book to see what I am talking about, best of luck to you.
God bless all who contribute.
