Why can’t I have just one drink?

Some individuals believe there are only two type of people in the world: problem drinkers and those lucky people who can have just one drink and then stop.

why can't i have just one drinkMany also think that we are either born alcoholics or we are not. This has been a prevailing view for a long time, and though this claim may seem sensational to some, it does have some basis in truth.

Those who hold these beliefs have the tendency to be people who have experienced or witnessed the most extreme symptoms and/or the most severe repercussions of drinking, such as:

  • Being unable to cease drinking, starting from the first time he or she had a drink
  • Repeatedly having blackouts (i.e. can’t remember the next day what happened) after having just a few drinks
  • Being arrested multiple times for driving while intoxicated
  • When drinking, becoming violent on more than one occasion

I know from my own research that there are individuals who develop severe alcohol drinking habits and behaviors such as the ones just explained above. These are true alcoholics, but there are also a large number of people who don’t meet the accepted criteria for diagnosing alcoholism, but fall into a grey area of problem drinking.

The vast majority of people who come to the Stop Drinking Expert fall into the problem drinking rather than alcoholic category.

But what is the difference between alcoholic and problem drinker?

Staying SoberAnyone who drinks heavily is at danger for damaging health repercussions, but some individuals seem to face an enhanced risk for developing alcohol-related health problems. The reason seems largely biological, though environmental factors also most likely play a role in this difference.

Researchers have discovered, for instance, that people vary in how their bodies metabolize alcohol. Since our biological make up is established at birth, there is some truth in the idea that we have particular traits that make us more (or less) vulnerable to the effects of alcoholic drinks.

Why can’t I have just one drink? If you are drinking on a daily basis and can’t seem to slow down then there is a good chance that your brain is designed to light up like a Christmas tree when you drink alcohol.

This means you are never going to have enough resolve and willpower to just have one drink.

However there is some good news. If you fall into the problem drinking category (For example; asking questions on Google like why can’t I have just one drink?) rather than the alcoholic category then you can quite easy get back in control with my help.

Virtually all these types of drinkers have no withdrawal side-effects to deal with and if they follow my step by step advice, they will stop drinking with no cravings or medication required.
