    I can't focus on work if I am not drinking a beer.
    I drink at least 1-3 bottles of beer per day (depends if I do some work or not) I just simply cant relax without it and not able to start working.

    There are some days I am not drinking but I am not working either.
    And I do not mean some 9-5 job, I mean our IM job.
    What about you guys, do you drink while working?

    I don't think anybody here is not drinking alcohol before opening this website. If you can still see the characters on your keyboard everything is fine.

    Highly recommend you speak with someone with more experience than us IMers. If you're worried about dependence, start by taking a test like the following to determine exactly how dependent you are: https://www.ncadd.org/get-help/take-the-test/am-i-alcoholic-self-test

    If you go to a bookstore, get what they call "The Big Book" - the Alcoholics Anonymous book. You can probably find it online also. Read some of the stories there and see how it strikes you.

    Ultimately, 3 beers a day is not terrible for you and is likely not a problem, yet. Especially if it's what you do 'to relax' while you do this extra work. But everybody is different, and if you feel uncomfortable with it, then you should keep seeking assistance.

    If drinking any amount of alcohol causes you issues, then there might be a problem. Only you can determine that though.

    I stopped drinking beer a few months ago. They make you stink and get fat. I gained around 8kgs in the 6 or so months before I stopped.

    I'll occasionally go out for cocktails with my brother or a friend, but nothing too regular.

    That's what alcoholics usually say.

    Well, I try not to drink coffee and the water is boring when I go to cafes, so I drink beer regularly and it's not a problem at all. And you will get fat from the nasty food you eat while drinking and not from the alcohol itself.

    Try finding an alternative that tastes like beer but doesn't contain any alcohol. You'll notice a withdrawal most likely but it won't be as bad due to the placebo effect. Give it time, 2 weeks, then you should be fine.

    Try other alternatives to help you focus such as meditation.
