    I'm not sure if I'm just an abit party goer, or an alcoholic.
    My family seems to think I have an issue with drinking, my doctor doesn't, but I lied to him about how frequentley I drink.

    I'm 17, I started drinking at 14.
    At first I was drinking once a week or so, by the time I was 15 I was drinking twice a week, at 16 I was drinking about 2 times a week still with the exception of summer and spring break... But since this summer I have been drinking alot.

    The last two weeks of summer I was drunk everyday, now during the school year I drink 3-5 times a week, depending on how much money I have to my name.
    Even on school nights, like tonight, I get drunk.

    Also, my immunity to alcohol has skyrocketed since I started, at first I couldn't drink 6 beer without staggering, now I can drink within the range of 20 beers before I even start to stagger.

    Well an alchoholic sorta needs alchohol to function in normal life....hopefully it's not that way for you.

    purely depends on whether you need it to function, yeah. i had to calculate my current intake of alcohol for a medical thing (and of course i lied) but the real amount was about 63 units a week. i think if you feel like you need to drink before say 12(noon) then you have some kind of problem.
     
  4. I am an alcoholic and i drink any time of day. I don't even drink beer anymore just 70 proof and up. I usually get up and take a swig of wutever I got. I started heavy drinling at 18. I would go out to parties drink about 20 beers or a bottle and drop a friend off then drive home. I've been very lucky. Its not a good road but like me and most alcoholics its not a big deal till its too late.
