    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.

    Drink less. Sounds like you're on top of it. You've recognized that it's destructive, and are curbing it. You can't really control what you do when you are drunk, you can only control if you get drunk.

    The reasons why i decided to quit drinking for awhile is the fact that I'm in college now. Most of my friends when going out, we go to hooters, football games, bbq, and esentially areas that involve drinking.

    So I don't think drinking less will help now but maybe later on.

    A guy walks into a doctor's office, puts his left hand on the back of his head and says, "doctor, it hurts when I do this."

    The doctor replies, "then don't do that."

    If you don't like the way that you behave when you're drinking, then don't drink. If your friends are around you when you start acting surly after a few drinks, then they'll understand why you don't drink anymore.

    I kind of think that the problem isn't the drinking but the emotional problems. I like to hear other views on the problem.

    Drinking just causes subtle emotions to come out

    I'm gonna go out on a limb and say you haven't dated anyone since this girl......?

    Who cares? Look, everyone has emotional issues that we cope with. Sometimes we cope well. Sometimes we cope poorly. He copes poorly when he's drunk.

    Stop drinking.

    I'm kind of going through a similar situation. My boyfriend was drinking a ridiculous amount.. he was drunk on an almost regular basis. The past few times he got drunk, he was pushing me around. I asked him to stop drinking, he's complying, but the subject still comes up because he wants to know for how long, because it's only when he drinks hard alcohol, blah blah blah. :dunno: If you act a way you shouldn't when you drink, the solution is to stop drinking.

    ugh, if your bf is pushing you around when he is really drunk then you should find himsome help. Being drunk is no excuse for being abusive.

    The first step is admitting that you are an alcoholic, the second step is posting about it in the road to recovery forum, the third step is getting all the support to get out of it and to realise that you don't need alcohol to have a great time.

    He isn't neccessarily an alcoholic. He just needs to not drink.
