Recently I've been a real asshole when I'm drinking with my friends. These are the same friends that I've been drinking with for years. Before, I would just drink and have a good time. Never really getting angry or mad after drinking too much. Usually by the time i realize that I did something bad, I quickly apologize at the end of the night or the next day. The reasons why I'm posting this is the fact that I know I drink a lot. As my friends do as well. But a lot has happen this year and one of the main thing is a kind of recent breakup(off/on for 4-5yrs) with someone I cared about. Its been around 8-9 months since this happen, and as you can see I'm the one who was lefted. Do you guys think that my drinking somehow releases all this pent up anger that I have? So is this considered a drinking problem or an emotional problem. I have also decided to quit drinking for awhile, mainly due to the fact that I don't like the way i behave when I'm drinking. Any advice is greatly appericated! Thanks guys.
