So, I like to drink whiskey. I'm Scottish and I bloody love it. I'm not justifying drinking massive amounts of whiskey because of my heritage though. My problem is what happens when I have a few. I'm 19, and on nights out I tend to just drink whatever tipple the bar has, on the rocks, and normally it's fine. But now, I've started blacking out long before my 'normal threshold' and I have no idea what happens for about 8 hours afterwards. I'd say it was spiking, but it happens to often to be coincidence. Several times, I've come home with other people's wallets as well as my own, or signs I've picked up off the street on the walk home. Once, I had a garden gnome in my bed. I digress. The frequency of drinking sessions are increasing, and the amount of money I spend every session is massive. I can't seem to go out without spending at least £90. I'm starting to worry that I'll do something really bad when I'm not aware of it, but I keep catching myself thinking of nothing but the amazing first whiskey after work. So, this was mostly ramble with no subject, so...essentially, what I would like to know is what people started doing when you noticed warning signs, or if you noticed them at all? I'm getting concerned about this and I don't want to end up alcoholic. Memento Mori, Scott.
