    Last night I got really drunk.

    I feel bad about it. My mum and my boyfriend are concerned about me. It has always been a fear of mine but recently, my drinking has been going down hill. I drink when I'm depressed and to forget my problems. I like the feeling of being drunk. It's more difficult now as I've...

    Is alcoholism hereditary?

    The trait seems to run in my family. Or is the trait that we do not like to deal with things, so we drink? I don't know. But I do use it as a coping tool sometimes.

    So Easy....

    There are times when I have gone out and got completely wasted, because I thought it would have been better than facing the situation. Dealing with something numb, at the time, felt like a great idea, but it only made the reality a million times worse. I have dealt with the more...

    Like Father, Like Daughter.

     We can start with the fact that we all know that being a child of an alcoholic makes you more prone to alcoholism. I've been told this for as long as I can remember due to the fact that my dad is an alcoholic, my aunt is a recovering-alcoholic, my grandpa was an alcoholic...

    Insidious Drinking

    When I graduated from high school, I had hardly tasted alcohol. The most I had ever done was take small sips from my father's beer as a child, simply because I was curious; I found the flavor revolting and wondered how anyone could care for such a drink. I think the taboo my...

    Alcohol and depression don't mix

    but it sure makes you feel good when you have a few drinks in me forget about everything. It's why I avoid drinking because I'm afraid I'll start to like the way I feel drunk and want to do it more and more often.

    I fear becoming an alcoholic.

    Not because so drink excessively. Or have a high dependency on it. It's because of her. She's an alcoholic. And you know what they say "Like Mother Like Daughter". She's the reason Im scared of having children. I cannot treat them like she treats me. I just can't.

    Fear

    I Want To Be Better Than I Am Right Now

    I think I have a drinking problem. I drink maybe once a month -- however, I'm a binge drinker. I will forget entire conversations. I think it is really scary. My dad had a drinking problem which I found out about recently. He barely drinks anymore but it always freaks out my...

    It Can't Just Be Me

      This is probably my greatest fear. I feel comfortable if I have control over as much of my daily world as possible and I don’t want any addictions to get a hold on me. That’s the theory. I’ve seen alcohol creeping up over the last year of two, like a...
