I am 21 and addicted to alcohol.
I guess it’s my way of coping with day to day stress, but I can see that it’s becoming an issue. I am spending around $100 a week on drinks, so financially it’s not great for me.
As soon as I’ve finished work for the day, my first reaction is to buy drinks and come home and get drunk.
The worst part is, I don’t want to stop. When I feel this buzz from drinking, it’s the only time I ever feel happy. I know most people say it’s a temporary fix, but for me, it genuinely makes me forget about all the crap in my life , and I really do feel happy.
I guess the main reason why I feel bad about drinking is because my partner doesn’t drink at all. And I feel like I’m letting him down every time I have a drink.
I also feel like I’m the only person my age who has an alcohol addiction...
Is there anyone else my age who is going through the same struggle??
