    A lot of people change when they drink and yes, it may not have affected you early in life, but prolonged exposure to alcohol can chemically change people.

    There are various mentalhealth problems associated with drinking, especially it impairs a healthy eating habit.

    Just like everything else in life, that is bad for you,it will eventually catch up with you. Some are more resistent/resillient than others, just depends on the person.

    I never believed I changed either until my husband at the time tape recorded me.

    ​He kept saying I was "mean".  I was NEVER a "mean" drunk.  But, when they would try to take my drinks away so I couldn't have them...he said I became VICIOUS and escpecially to my kids.  I didn't believe it.

    ​He taped it...and for sure he was right.  That was a real eye opener for me. You should has your girlfriend to tape you when she thinks you are being "cheeky"...so you can hear it for yourself.  It will definetly change how you think about drinking.

      Its a bad idea...LOL.

      ​But, good for your drinking...because once you HEAR yourself...you can never forget it...deny it....etc.

      ​Tell her to do it when you don't know about it.  That is when it will be most valuable.

    Yes I used to be a normal drinker but something changed they it's progressive. I wish I could help you I feel so sad for anyone going through this. We don't mean any harm but we are not are selfes when we've reached that point. They say we have to let go of our guilt or it will bring us back to drunk. I say if give up you'll never know - but that only worked for 10 days for me and I told myself I could be a normal drinker again. HaHa. Nope - just be kind to yourself that's all I'm trying to do
