Question problem or not a problem - September 14th 2011, 11:38 PM

I turned 18 not too long ago so i've been going out a lot more to pubs etc,,, i've noticed i'm actually drinking a lot more than i used to, i'm not really sure if i'm an alcoholic or not though as i go out roughly 4-5 times a week to have a few drinks at the pub with my mates,,, i don't drink to the point of drunk or passing out, but it's becoming a habit to drink every second day almost,,,
thoughts?

In my opinion, it's typical for people who just turned of age in their country to drink a bit more than normal. I think as long as you are being smart and responsible with your drinking and it isn't affecting your every day life negatively, it is okay. Just make sure to keep tabs on yourself. I don't think you'd want to keep this up TOO long as it could very well turn into a problem without you even realizing it.


"I've been there. I want to tell you it gets better. That pain in the pit of your stomach? That pain in your heart? It goes away. That voice in your head saying that there's no way out? It's wrong. Believe me. It gets better."

I wouldn't worry tooo much, its a student kinda lifestyle, as long as your drinking isn't affecting your ability to work/do schoolwork, or your relationships with others it's probably not a problem. Others may disagree, and if it does worry you you can just make an effort to drink less when you do go out (buy a more expensive drink and drink it slowly, or alternate alcoholic and soft drinks). It's not particularly healthy to drink at this level for the rest of your life.. but its kind of assumed that most people won't once they have more work/family commitments. So for now, I reckon you're good :P
