Well, one beer definitely isn't enough to get drunk, but if your struggling with drinking you'd be best to talk to someone. There are life long consequences from jaundice and liver disease to social consequences, like not being able to spend time with your friends without alcohol or missing work because you drank to much the night before. If you struggle with alcoholism you'd be better off not drinking to be honest, there is a difference between enjoying having a drink and being addicted to it. It's a huge struggle and it'll be so hard for you to have to go through that so I'm sorry. If you need to talk PM me

I dont have a drinking problem yet but I know, i will develop one because I have self control issues and I dont regret drinking it.

I want more of it. It helps me forget about things....

Drinking isn’t a solution to problems you have in your life. It’s fine to enjoy a social drink to have a good time. But if you are drinking to try to fix something, I’m just going to say now that it’s not going to work. Alcoholism only creates more problems, it doesn’t fix them.

It can be hard to stay away from alcohol, especially in a house with an alcoholic. But I am sure you can see that drinking does not improve your mother’s situation, it only harms herself and those around her.

I think it might be a good idea to talk to a trusted adult about how you are feeling, like a teacher, or a school counselor. They can help redirect your emotions into a healthier outlet. Creating bad drinking habits now will only cause more mental and physical problems later in life. You can avoid that by getting help now.

Hi,

Lizzie has pretty much summed everything up in my opinion.

I just wanted to say... You can obviously see yourself heading towards alcoholism, you've grown up with it and struggle to control your impulses. But you're posting here for a reason, you obviously want help and to take a different route. This should be your cue to gather outside influences to support you, not just let it happen. You're one of the lucky ones, believe it or not. Many dont realise what they're falling into before it gets really quite bad.

You've seen your Mother descend ino alcoholism, you know what it does. You clearly resent her for whatever reason so why would you let yourself fall into the same traps.
