I don't usually drink, like.. before this all happened I probably consumed alcahol 4 times a year. It's not my kind of thing at all.

But about a month ago my Mum came home with 32 bottles of Beck's because they were on buy one get one free; because of the amount we had, I was told I could have one whenever I wanted (mainly because they were taking up valuable fridge space).

Since then, we've re filled the fridge twice.

So that's about 100 bottles of beer in a month, between me and my step dad, and about 10 for friends.

45 bottles in a month, roughly 3 units a day. For me that's a lot. A hell of a lot. I'm only 16 and before this had never drunk 2 days in a row.. we're about to run out and I'm getting quite.. nervous.

Am I just being meladramatic (sp) or should I actually be worried.

I don't think the pit is going to be much help when it comes to alcoholism. Particularly in preventing it.

Depends, are you worried about the fact that you're going to run out? Or just that you might have a problem?

So you're from Britain, you have free access to as much beer as you want, and you're complaining?

It's just that it's such a HUGE leap for me.

To go from a champagne at weddings and christmas to 3 beers a day for a solid month is like.. huge for me.

And I know.. probably the wrong place to come for advice on alcaholism, but I know everyone will be brutally honest with me no matter what; ie. If I'm being a bitch, I'll get told.

Edit: Worried I might run out.

You're only 16? It may not be really good for your liver in the long run because you're not yet fully developed and you're already giving it loads to process. Take it easy.

And yes, you have a problem: you went to the Pit for advice.

Kidding.

Naw, he's only grumbling. If us Brits actually complained about things, it'd be a very different place.

At what point should I start worrying then..?

You're fine, dude. Like it's been said: just take a break once in a while. Beer isn't that bad. What you don't want to develop a problem with is vodka and whiskey and that ****.

It's only like 1-2 beers a day, and it's not like you're getting drunk every day. Stop drinking for a week. If it's difficult, then worry.

rofl.... i drink beer when i get home from work. i have ppl buy for me since im 18 and the drinking age is 21. but i figure if im old enough to live on my own and have a job i should be able to enjoy a beer or two when i get home. 3 beers a day isnt bad at all. unless u start to build up a tolerance and it goes from 3 to 4 to 5 then u should prolly stop.
#23
Ha, you've got nothing to worry about. It's not like you're drinking a bottle of vodka a day or anything stupid like that.
#24
Dude, water, pepsi, juice, whatever, don't drink alcoholic beverages regularly. It's NOT good for you. I only drink at parties, and just enough to get drunk, that's it. Drinking that much a day, in a couple of decades, your liver's gonna be f*cked. Only drink alcohol on special occasions, if you must at all. That's yr best bet Good luck (Y)

Even though if you regularly succeed about 10 units, you're more than likely gonna have alcohol related organ problems?

The main factors of being British are getting involved with other countries affairs, not relavant i know, and COMPLAINING. I take pride in it. I even love queueing up for stuff.

If we get involved in other countries affairs, then what the f*ck is America doing? :S

Seriously, you should cut down. Putting that stuff in your system at 16 can be dangerous. so i think just cut down alot. you dont want liver problems.

Dude, if your more worried about running out than the actual alcoholism part, you have a problem. Beer is absolutely horrible if you drink it while your brain is still in developement. If you're drinking three times a day, your brain is going to be seriously ****ed up.

Thats bull****, the legal drinking age is 5 years old in the UK. It won't hurt you short term unless you are getting absolutely wrecked every night, but it could cause liver damage in the long run. It will not have a worse affect on your liver than someone of legal age.
