Hello all, I am a currently employed pilot with a first class medical. I have had substantial life changes in the last year which I believe has led to a bout of depression and also substantial amounts of binge drinking. I have tried to quit several times but without luck. I am not drinking (for now) but I worry after a bad day or meeting up with friends that elusive “just one drink” is going to turn in to me falling back off the wagon. I had an epiphany recently that if I do not change my habits, quit drinking, and seek help it is only a matter of time before something bad does happen. What are my options? Seek “family” counseling? Outpatient addiction recovery? I am completely at a loss here but want to do the right thing and get my life on track, along with getting help on my terms before I am getting mandatory help via the H.I.M.S. program.
