I Know that I am an alcoholic. I know that. I want to give up but I can't. I'm very tired of keeping this secret. But I'm afraid of stopping. I'm 22 and don't want to miss out. But I don't know what to do.

Miss out on what? The party life? Take it from someone who has been there, its not worth it in the long run, and even if its a secret now it will come out as you become more dependent, and besides we live in an age where everyone has a damn camera on their phone, and if your not carful some **** will upload a vid of you out of your mind drunk, so if you do drink do it around trust worthy friends.

Nauristar10, you are not alone. It helps a lot to share your secret. That is the only way to start. I don't know how long I have been an alcoholic, but probably a lot longer than I care to admit. Just confessing it regularly (once isn't enough - need to keep it front and center) helps me reduce my drinking occurrences. For now, today, maybe identify a friend to whom you can safely discuss this. That someone could turn into the person you go to when you teeter on the edge of a drink you know you shouldn't want, but do. Myself and many others on this site would be happy to be that person for you if you don't have someone else. I speak from experience, I have quite drinking a hundred times. I am now only on my second day without a drink. Good luck and let me/us know how we can help you or just be a sounding board for you.

Okay thanks so much I wish you well on you're new life choice
