I don't know where this would go move it if need be - May 26th 2009, 12:43 PM

This thread has been labeled as triggering, particularly on the subject of substance use, by the original poster or by a Moderator. The contents of this thread might therefore not be suitable for certain sensitive users. Please take this into consideration before continuing to read.

OK so starting Saturday my family and I are going on a vacation to Canada and they want to go to a winery you know one of those places where they make wine. problem is my father or no one in my family drinks so I don't drink(no fake ID don't even know where to get one so yeah have no access to it). However even since I found out that father's father drank (not an alcoholic but more than he should have) I decide I miss him so much (he died YEARS ago like I bearly remember him that I would follow his habits). Between that and wanting to fit in I go NUTS around booze. I mean I get triggered just really want some and yet I'm just 17 just 3-15 months later and I COULD drink in Canada as it is no so yeah I don't WANT to go to that place for that reason and I am not going to tell my parents if I get around alcohol I will want some like heck.

P.S It is so bad that I feel unconfortable around my 24 year old cousin for NO other reason other than that I am jealous that he can drink(I'm next accual grandchild on that side to hit 21 is why I think)

I just get really trigged and nuts around booze and to state the duh one place they want to go there will be MUCH of it.

This could be the fact that you cannot drink yet legally, so you want it even more.

I am from Canada, andwhen I was 18, I was obsessed with it (19 is legal drinking age in my province). I always wanted to drink. I was jealous when people could drink, and I couldn't. Drove me up the wall. I got drunk the first time on my 18th birthday and that just did me in. I would purposely have parties so I could get alcohol and get drunk.

I calmed down after I turned 19. I realized it wasn't such a big deal.

There isn't much I can tell you to calm yourself around it, except if you feel the urge to drink, distract yourself with something else.Take up a sport. Start driving yourself everywhere if you can- this will put a limit on you knowing the risks and how illegal it is.

You shouldn't be jealous of your cousin. Just think- he has to deal with the real world and make money and stuff. Your responsibilities right now are minimal. He should be jealous of you!

Go on and hold her
till the screaming is gone
Go on believe her
when she tells you
'Nothings wrong'

Even if I tried could you be less than an addiction?
