Tenant/housemate with a drinking problem

My friend A owns a large house and rents out 3 rooms, while she lives in the 4th room. One of the housemates, D (the brother of one of A's friends), is a nice enough guy, but shortly after he moved in she discovered that he gets drunk every night.

1 night per month binge drinker

I know I have a problem drinking. I am a binge drinker that drinks once a month just before my period. Alcoholic Anonymous is the only answer I am getting. It has been helpful in the past, as I had 7 months of sobriety. As a binge drinker one or two nights a month, what do you think I should do, as I have found AA not the exact solution to my problems right now? Let me explain when, how, and why I drink. Please help! [more inside]
