My mother has admitted I can drink socially again too. So I don't understand why drinking everyday is so bad and makes me an alcoholic or have a problem when I am very well allowed to drink in the future. I mean I'm legal and it may be a depressant but I will continue to drink. Just like a nice cold pop or water is refreshing everyday, a nice cold beer or rum and ginger drink everyday is just as refreshing. I'm not hurting anyone and I even have a job. Yet everyone seems to think I have a problem.
