Amanda, welcome to FitDay and the forums.
I hear ya' about the drinking--I've been known to tip a few (and a few more....and a few more) from time to time. But, of course, we can't do that and lose weight at the same time. I limit my consumption to once a month now--gives me something to look forward to and is not enough to derail some decent weight loss.
Stick with FitDay and I know you'll reach your goal!
