Hi, I've been drinking since I turned 16 and I'm now 23. My Dad is a recovering alcoholic and I've always been afraid that I might be too. The reason I want to stop is because it seems that when I drink I always do something I regret, say something or worse blackout and can't even remember. It sounds stupid but I feel like I'm to young to stop drinking. But I know that if I keep putting off quitting I may lose the people closest to me. The reason I'm really afraid now is because I had my first panic attack on Saturday when I was driving hungover. Now its put me in a terrified state of mind. I've never realised how fragile my mental state is. The thought of drinking again freaks me out...
I also went out on Friday night with the mind set that i didn't want to get drunk. But ended up staying out until 4am and can't remember much of the night.
I'd love some advise on people's younger days of drinking and if anyone got sober at a young age..
