drinking too much again?
I'm not sure that I could classify myself as an alcoholic but I USED to drink a 6 pack a night, I'm 22 now and that was 3 and a half years ago. I stopped drinking as much because a close friend of mine came to me concerned about me and telling me that I need to cut down or we wouldn't be able to hang out as much and that made me upset. That seemed to be enough to make me cut back. Now 3 and a half years later I feel like I'm getting close to what I was. I've been drinking drink if 3 or 4 a night maybe 3 nights a week for the past few weeks. I know that's not extreme but do you think that makes me an alcoholic or do I have a problem? I hate to say it but drinking does make me feel better from depression or something happeni ing thats upsetting. I would never say that out loud to anyone :/ idk I don't know what to think about it. Is it bad yo drink 3 beers 3 nights in a row? I don't know based on what I used to do :(

I personally don't think that makes you an alcoholic or even a binge drinker. I used to drink twelve 500ml cans of strong lager twice a week and that pretty much was going overboard but I could stop and go weeks without. If you are worried you're drinking too much just stop for a while and take a rain check. For me I've been sober 10 weeks and feeling much better, my complexion is better, lost some weight as well.

See I feel like my problem is I can't drink just 1 or 2 drinks if k drink and I don't get really buzzed or drunk then I'm on edge after drinking 1 or 2 until I get to that point. So I can't just turn it down or drink a little :/

That's good you have gone so long with drinking nothing though. I tell myself I will and never keep that promise. I'm 22 so I tell myself it's the newness of being "allowed" to drink lol I guess I feel like i binge drink but I overthink

It really depends what size beer you're drinking. You know loads of people find it difficult to stop drinking after they've had a few, something in beer that activates the brain in wanting more.

I'm in the same boat, kinda wondering if I've got a problem or not. I only have 3 or 4 pints a night. But if I don't have them I get seriously stressed and pissed off :/ Hmmmm...
