I really dont know who to talk to about this, so I figured this would be a good place to begin. Im a college student, and about end of summer last year, I began drinking a lot. I drank about 4-5 times a week at that point and I was taking at least 10 shots a night and some mixed drinks on occasion. I started to cut back some, and now i have cut back to about 3 or 4 times a week, and not as heavy drinking. I still have nights now where I drink a lot, and I never have hangovers, which is why it didnt bother me to drink so much. I had a lot of nights of blacking out, and I would have pictures and videos on my phone to show the night. Ive had a lot of bad things happen to me during this drinking. (car accident, unprotected sex, risky behaviors, bad decisons,) honestly, writing this makes me really upset with myself. But i have had some of the most terrible things in my life happen to me since my drinking habits have began. Ive been blacking out a lot lately, and i feel like im starting to get a little out of control. I dont understand why i cant stop drinking so much, I would think i would have more common sense to not drink so much, and I tell myself I'll be good and I just end up waking up and not remembering parts of the night. Two days ago was the first time I woke up still drunk, and even after not remembering a thing from the previous night, I still took 4 or 5 more shots at 9am. I dont know whats wrong with me, my friends think Im over reacting and that I dont have a problem but im starting to get concerned about my health. I started doing research on alcoholism, but I still dont really know if my behavior is normal or not. I dont know if I have a problem, but if I do, I want to get better. I dont think this is something I should take lightly and the fact that i even think I may have a problem, says a lot to me.
