    I'm 21. I have been addicted to miscellaneous substances since I was 15. Mostly weed. My problem is this: the law says drink as much as you want as long as you don't drive and stay in the privacy of your own home. I have followed the law but how do you get past the fact that you don't want to do anything without a BAC? [flamesuiton]i have dealt with this problem for many years. I'm hoping someone has a helpful answer to this [/flamesuitoff]

    BAC = Blood Alcohol Content
    Use google.com

    Yeah, stop drinking and doing drugs, and get your ass to a meeting (AA/NA/CA). If you don't want to do anything without getting drunk, then obviously you've got a nice sized problem with alcohol. Do something nice for someone, be useful, get a job, contribute to society, stop being a degenerate and clean yourself up and be a productive member of society.

    OK, so I googled CA, and it didn't come up with the answer so readily, but ...
    CA = Cocaine Anonymous [www.ca.org]

    if you want to change, you need to do something about it.

    i suggest seeing a psychologist (who deals with alcohol abuse issues).

    I saw one regularly for about 6 weeks, after i got booted out of school for poor grades...cause i was drinkin basically every day.

    I found it really helpful...came up with different stratigies and shit to curb my drinking habbit. What's cool about where I went is they take a different approach then AA. They believe that with help you are able to successfully moderate your alcohol consumption...not once an alcoholic always an alcoholic...

    so i guess my advice is that if you have that option, do it...or do something...seek help!

    good luck mang

    lets suppose that 1 in 20 members of AA could be taught to moderate their drinking. Should we attempt to find that 1 person? no! in doing so, you'd ruin the lives of 5 people trying to find out who can moderate and who can't.

    the truth is... true alcoholics of the type outlined in AA never can drink moderately again. total abstinence is better than perfect moderation.

    I have tried many many times to moderate...and it just isn't going to happen. This past year was one whole attempt at moderation. Didn't get me anywhere.

    From what I understand, if you have to try hard to moderate, then it's not worth it, and better to abstain.
