I didn't even start drinking until I was 19 (I'm 20 now). The past 6 months I've drank nearly every other day or every 3 days, never going without it for more than 3 days. Recently, I got a DUI (with some other charges), and I'm doing the classes and paying the fine etc. I went a week without drinking after the DUI and it was HELL! I would never drive after drinking again EVER, but I made sure I could sleep at my friend's before getting wasted on Saturday. The real problem with not being able to stop is that my if my mom catches me drinking again, or at least often, she's most likely going to kick me out. She'll give me a beer every once in a while or if I drink somewhere else that's fine. But it's 9:30PM on a Tuesday night and I poured myself a mixed drink, knowing full well that if she smells alcohol on my breath when she comes home shit is going to go down. I can't stop! I need it. Every couple of days at least. I need it! I've tried AA. It's so boring and filled with people 2-3 times my age! I don't know how to stop this before I wind up homeless.
