I am afraid of becoming an alcoholic. Alcoholism runs in my family. My father's Step-mom and dad are both recovering alcoholics. My mother's Mother, and Step-Dad are borderline alcoholics. My father is a recovering alcoholic, who still drinks here and there, and when he does, he is the person he use to be. I myself do enjoy to drink a little too much. I can go months without drinking, however when I do drink, I do tend to go over-board big time. It scares me so much that I might be an alcoholic, that is why the only time I really drink is sociably, and it doesn't happen often.
