Hey there!

Welcome to Teenhelp. I'm glad you've found us here, and have reached out for some help! Take your time, look around and find the site features that are best suited for you

On to the reason why you posted. Every weekend is not always regarded as a problem, when you are a mature and fully developed adult. As a teenager, it can be dangerous, damaging, not to mention illegal. Take it slow, drink less, eventuallly you will be able to stop completely. There is a site here (click) with some good tips you could try. Some of which may seem a bit drastic and not apply to you, but I am certain you can find something within the tips that can help you.

Your friend has a right to be worried about you, and I'm happy to hear that she is. Friends can often be a wonderful source of support. I'm struggling with substance myself, and a good friend of mine has been amazingly supportive. Let her do what she should as your friend!

Take care of yourself, and PM me if you ever need anything.

Welcome to Teen Help. Seeking help is the first step to recovery! I am also addicted to alcohol, but not as badly as I used to.

You could consider talking to your mom and/or dad about this problem. You may think that they would be angry, but you would be surprised! You need to think about, why you do it. Alcohol is a depressant, and it could also promote aging.

Heres another site, where it has all this and other interesting facts.

You should consider talking to a therapist, they always help!

PM me if you need anything
