Chrissy, I hope I didn't guilt that out of you, but I'm glad that you were honest, nonetheless.
I think that if you are worried that your drinking is a problem, then it IS a problem and you should address it with your Psychiatrist and therapist as such. I'm surprised that your therapist dismissed your concern so easily. I grew up in a family with a dad who drank anywhere from 3 to 6 beers a night and more on the weekends. He was never rip-roarin drunk, but he was drunk enough to not be himself. He never thought it was a problem, but the rest of the family did. I'm sure that he thought that it was no big deal and that my brother and I never noticed when he had been drinking, but let me tell you, we did and it was very hard on us.
Over the past 10 years or so my dad has become a totally different person and rarely drinks anymore. We live five hours apart and talk on the phone weekly. I can tell just by talking on the phone if he has had a couple drinks or not because his personality changes, even if ever so slightly after just a bit of alcohol. If he has had more than a couple of beers I don't even want to talk to him because I know that it isn't him that I'm talking to, it's the alcohol. I know that this might not seem very relevent to you, but I just wanted to show you the flip side of the story -- the side that could be your children someday. I haven't even told you any of the specifics, like how my dad used to want to have "heart to heart" talks with me after drinking and would always proceed to tell me that how when my brother and I graduated from high school he was going to divorce my mother. That's a hard thing to lay on a 12 year old. He doesn't remember this at all, so evidentally he didn't realize the impact it had on me. Or how there was a year after I graduated and my parents had just divorced that we didn't talk. I could tell you story after story, but that would bore you.
Once we have children our actions no longer just impact us, they impact our family and have a great influence on who our children become. I would likely be a totally different person with less baggage if my dad hadn't drank. I don't dwell on it because I can't change it now, and I have a wonderful dh and a great family. Don't let drinking affect your family like it did mine. If you have any questions, or just want to talk, please PM me.
