i can't stay sober each week mainly friday and saturday i am finding myself buying booze and drinking, this friday i drank two bottles of a vodka mix drink, and saturday nothing, as my friend was round, but i just cant stay sober i try not to drink, most nights i think about drinking i think about getting drunk but i cant drink because if i turn up to work with a hangover i loose my job but i constantly think about drinking, even when im at work im thinking about drinking, i just cant stay sober. and its got to the point where i am hiding booze in my rooom so i know i have some, the other day my mum found it and took it away, i went mad, told her to put it back in my room she didnt she refused to. help.

Listen, it's a devil, a devil in your ear which is telling you to drink. I've dealt with this devil, you need to grab it by the horns and rock it until it shuts up!

I'm 15, so you can take my advice or you can't. I started drinking, so I could be cool and have a good time and deal with my problems without thinking them through, but you know where that got me? A $220 fine and now my life is gradually sliding down hill. I don't drink anymore, it was a hard demon of mine to conquer but if I can do it at age 15, you can do it at your age!

When I want to drink, I call up a good friend or someone I love to be around and I go chill... It shuts the devil up. I'm now at a point, where I can go buy a quart of Kelly's Wine, and still have half of it at the end of the weekend. I was basically an alcoholic, which is what your turning into I believe.

Control your drinking, then you have no worries!
