I think I got a drinking problem.

Lately I've been hitting the bottle pretty hard. I promised my girlfriend I wouldn't drink, or at least not drink around her in honor of her choice. It's just I might've gotten addicted to my whiskey...it doesn't help me either because I'm not feeling my usual self anymore. I'm more sad and angry at times when I drink. It's just 6:42 in the morning, I'll want it later, but I'm getting cravings now because I'm already deficient in certain things like Iron and drinking is making it worse. Ugggh.

So, let's take a poll. Do I dump out what's left of the bottle and sober up?
Or do I keep it and just not buy anymore of the hard stuff?

That's your choice. I recommend doing a search for online quizzes that can help you decide if you have a problem.
Search ,"do I have a drinking problem quiz" and just spend some time reading and thinking about your life. Good luck either way. I started drinking when I was 17 and stopped at 23. If you need to stop then doing so now will be easier than when you're older.

I think you should keep it! Put it up on a shelf in full view at all times. Let it remind you of yesterday, every time you look at it. Always remember, the whiskey was made for people who have no willpower and lots of disposable income. But also remember, it's not the whiskey! It's your addiction that you are really having a problem with. If the whiskey is gone, something else will replace it very quickly! The whiskey has nothing to do with this conversation! It only serves as the current scapegoat.

Get sober again and enjoy living

Just stop. You get nothing out of continuing down this path. The longer you wait the harder it'll be to stop and the greater the chances you'll lose what matters to you.

[@422459,AcidBurn] Very true, and I am not losing her over a bottle of whiskey!

How often do you get drunk? Do you ever drink alone? Do you find it hard to start drinking once you start i.e struggle to limit your drinks?

The more you drink the more damage you are doing to yourself get rid of it and stop drinking

Sober up now. I carried on into my early 40s and did a lot of damage.
