A Minor Alcohol Problem

by ME13

Alright, so I’m 16 years old, but in my opinion, life grows you up and not the age.

I’m studying in a very good high-school, I have few friends, but ones I trust. Now and then I go to parties organized by others as it happens in any high-school, but each time I drink, I can’t stop. I think I can’t control myself, as others told me.

Friends told me I fell once or twice. I couldn’t stop myself kissing and touching my girlfriend (the problem is I wasn’t doing it in a "romantic way" and that I was doing it in front of everybody).

I wasn’t paying attention to anything. I’ve been told, but still I was listening to them(a little bit funny, I know). Well now, I know I’m not addicted to alcohol. It’s not like I’m buying it and sit home drinking everyday, but it happens. It’s normal to drink at parties and I know I like to do it when I have some activity.

What kind of problem is this ? What happened to me? Since it happened only once. Should I stop drinking? I also know, it’s not a big deal, but it pisses me off.

I’m still thinking about what happened and trying to remember some things. Also, I didn't eat anything (well...I drank before without eating but I never did weird things).

Usually I don’t post things on the web, but this thought -- its just pissing me off.

Thank you for listening to me and I am sorry if my English isn’t that good.

Hi, look I think your just having fun, thats what 16 year old girls do. So I wouldn't worry too much about an addiction now.

My advice to you is, as you get older and wiser, make sure you use your head before saying yes to more alcohol or even drugs. These addictions are very hard to overcome, so from now on tell yourself I don't ever wanna fall victim to bad addictions.

Also think of your family before accepting anything that could harm you. And please, always say no to drugs, the devil likes to play with weak minds such as the minds of drug addicts.

Minor Problem???
by: Gill

I don't get it!! Minor problem? Either you have a problem or you don't.

Think about it. You drink occasionally, and when you do you can't stop yourself. You've fallen and don't remember (1 or 2 times doesn't matter). You've been obnoxious with your girlfriend -- and you don't remember (food, no food, what difference does that make?)

To me. This is a problem. You haven't lost your house, your family, your job, and you don't drink every day, but you can still have a drinking problem. You're only 16yrs old and your whole life is ahead of you.

Don't do what I did -- wait 45years to finally get help.

Open your eyes. You have a problem.
