Highlights of “Do I Just Abuse Alcohol Or Am I An Alcoholic?” – Casey’s Story

Casey didn’t struggle with alcohol, until her career identity became wrapped up in it. Check out the details of her story:

  • Casey was a self-proclaimed “good girl” who feared getting in trouble while in boarding school
  • In college, she joined the women’s rugby team and entered a ritualized binge drinking culture. Alcohol helped her escape from her anxiety of “always getting it right”
  • At the end of college she began feeling the pressure to find a job and a place to live
  • Living on her own and working was stressful and drinking helped her cope
  • Alcohol was a big part of her job and was always present during afternoons in the office and business on trips
  • At home, her bottle of wine helped her through motherhood and connected her and her husband
  • She rationalized her drinking for years. But she began questioning if she was just abusing alcohol or if she was an alcoholic
  • She joined a private Facebook group and began sharing her story with others. A woman invited her to join an AA meeting with her
  • Casey rebelled against the idea of identifying as someone with a “problem”. And feared a life where alcohol was completely removed forever
  • She quit drinking for the birth of her 2nd child and thought she could return to drinking without a problem. But she quickly found herself back in her same drinking patterns
  • Joined Facebook group again and was introduced to a sober coach. The coach helped her find the freedom she was looking for through accountability and new coping tools
