I feel you - I have the tendency to come home after work and after having been fairly functional all day, I slip into this ugly scene of drinking and drinking and drinking and of course, add television and stir. pretty soon i'm numb enough to not feel anything bad and can atleast laugh a little at the terrible mess of me stumbling to bed. Cheery huh? On a positive note, I haven't done this in a few weeks which makes me think that my meds are working correctly. Usually my solo drinking project is directly proportional to how well my meds are working. Discovering this has been good - now when I get the urge to drown, I know it's time to make an appointment with the doc.
Anyway, that's my situation. I hope you are able to find a med balance that keeps the booze at bay.
