I think I might have a problem with alcohol. Or rather, I have a problem with the amount of alcohol I ingest.
I don't drink everyday, or really feel the need or urge to drink. I like to drink, and when I do, I usually get drunk. This doesn't seem like a huge deal to me, and when I look at my friends, it mostly seems to mirror what they do.
Now, where the problem lies is that when I DO drink, I never seem to have an off switch. I never get to that point in the evening where I realize that I have had a good amount of drinks, that I am having a good time, and now would be the best time to stop drinking, or at least dial it back. And this is when I can be a dick.
It doesn't happen all the time, or even most of the time, but occasionally, when I get pretty ripped, I am the silliest of geese. I don't like that part of me, and I try not to let it out, but sometimes it does. I hate it when this happens. Nothing usually comes of it because I have the best friends in the world, but I don't want to push that, and I don't want it to be a defining character trait. I also don't really get hung over at all, so that's not even a deterrent.
I'm looking for a method to just get a little squiffy. Not blasted. I don't want to give up drinking entirely, because as I said, most of the time I have a good time, and things don't happen. Any advice for me?
