To Quit Or Not To Quit.

Well this is what it's come to I guess, finding random sites on the internet to hear random peoples opinions.. anyway not trying to sound unappreciative to anyone that even takes the time to read this, I've just been a little bitter these days. I'm a 20 year old female I've been drinking since I was about 14-15 years old and I drink once sometimes twice a weekend, I personally don't find that to be to bad but my family seems to think that's to much, I say they should be worried if I were to drink everyday and they just say that's what it's going to lead up to, My mom even said "the first time you black out, is when you know your an alcoholic" okay I black out once in awhile and yeah I can't go a weekend without drinking, well I did once and it was the worst weekend i've ever had, I have absolutely no sober friends.. they all drink every weekend too, they do more then that actually they smoke weed, smokes sometimes even do harsh drugs. I don't do any of that I just drink. so I don't think I'm that bad, I'm currently in a long distance relationship and my boyfriend doesn't drink, smoke or do drugs infact he hates all of that. he doesn't tell me to quit, he doesn't force me to do anything but I KNOW he doesn't like it and he makes that pretty clear. I don't know if I want to quit for him and my family, or if I wanna quit for myself.. a part of me wants to because I know i'll have more money in the end and now that I'm 20 I gotta start thinking about my future, I worry more about partying on weekends then I do anything else in life. I would like to quit I just think my social life would be over if I do.

I just think my social life would be over if I do? Ok, Think about your social life? Where is it going? There's nothing wrong in looking into other places to go and do that dosnt evolve alcohol. At 20, your still finding yourself. Are you an alcoholic? Thats up to you to decide, When you look down deep inside, you will know, I just hope you do it soon, before the babys come and your a mother. But your still somebody's little girl in the mean time, your mom still see's you as her baby, and she always will. She's not trying to talk you down when she says stuff to you. She dosnt know what to do so she says the only thing she can think of to try and help you. And theres nothing wrong with saying, Maybe I have a Problem with alcohol, Its when you dont ask your self them questions things go bade in a hurry. Dont be ashamed to ever ask for help, I am an Alcoholic and I am still chasing them demons at age 49. I got a few more to beat, but I'm going to keep trying. I wish you all the luck in the world.

Well think about it..Do you want your entire social life in the future to be about parties and drugs? It's all up to you whether you're quitting for yourself or family/boyfriend.
