Hello! I just need some advice really. Im 22 years old and I really struggle to control my drinking when I go out! I don't drink every day and not even every week! Maybe once a month. But when I do go out for a few drinks me and my partner always make an evening of it as we don't go out much. I used to be fine with my drinking (just waking up with a normal hangover and probably been sick the night before) but ever since I have had sepsis every time I drink now I cant stop in the way that if I have 6 drinks for example and im probably merry by then I just keep going until I black out (not physically but don't know what im doing or saying) this has got quite bad as it has caused huge arguments and fights with my partner and family and I want this to stop happening. I don't want to STOP drinking completely at 22 years of age as when me and my boyfriend go out the first part of the evening is lovely and we have a proper laugh together and I love having a drink with him but its always the last hour or so just completely turns! Its his birthday next weekend and he really wants to go out with me and says "we will have a lovely evening just control your drinking" but it isn't that easy, and now I have really bad anxiety because I really want to go out with him for his birthday but im terrified im going to ruin the evening (it isn't always like this by the way just 90% of the time, sometimes I can go out and im not that bad at all) Does anyone have any advice on what I could do to still have a good time, get merry but don't get black out drunk?! thank you in advance.
