My therapist said I have a drinking problem

I didn’t not go to AA meeting, but me and my therapist did a test on my drinking habits. It said that at risk of drinking. She told me not to drink for a month to see where it goes.

I don’t think I care do it, selfish I like having a few beers on the weekends and make depressed I can’t do that. I already deal with self harm issues and it just another thing to add to top of the list.

It sad I’m like this way, I tired of feeling like on the problem. People think I’m being paranoid and I think I’m being paranoid.

Fuck I don’t know what to think.

I think I was talking to you about alcohol a few days ago, that it’s a depressant, therefore using it to address depression is about as useful as using gasoline to put out a fire. The thing is, halting a habit without an alternative way of coping, leads to frustration, and usually doesn’t work. Paranoia is a manifestation of anxiety. Alcohol can numb such feelings, however, the feelings tend to return with greater strength, once the alcohol is gone.

What bothers you about going to an AA meeting?
