    I Can't Do This On My Own

    I think I need to admit myself. I don't trust myself to be home alone all day. I feel like someone else is living in my body.

    When I was 17 going on 18, I had a small drinking problem. I would purposely get drunk to numb the pain of losing my grandfather. The last thing I remember of him was him asking in pain "Why do you hate me?" I hated my self so much because of that. I found that quote, or atleast...

    Unfortunately I have an extremely bad drinking problem. Very bad I could basically be classified as a full blown hardcore alcoholic. What's even worse is the fact that it's illegal since I'm a minor. I believe I started drinking at 13 or 14 (I know "how terrible) I can just...
