Well, congratulations on taking the absolutely first essential step towards cobriety--- you have to recognize that there is a problem and that you want to stop. ANy good local counsellor or shrink should be able to help you , there are some meds that can make it easier, and there is no need to be a party pooper --- you can have a good time, and not reduce anyone else's good time, while drinking non-alcoholic drinks. And you are right to recognize that the solitary drinking you describe is more sinister than moderate social drinking. Echelle, the problem is that some people have an awful lot of blue moons every week !
