Recognising alcoholism by LamouetteHi there slightly different angle on this. But i wouldn't class myself as an alcoholic and in fact its taken me 3 yrs to even consider i have a problem with alcohol. I dont even like alcohol or need a drink however whenever i go on a night out it usually ends up (9/10) with me black out drunk and i start to say everything ive been keeping to myself. this often presents in the form of aggression. Often when i am upset with people i will verbally attack them on nights out. I just seem to have repeated this pattern of behaviour for years. its starting to really affect my friendships as it obviously leaves my friends feeling upset and angry. i am lucky in that i have very forgiving friends. Just was wondering if anyone else has ever experienced this and if this counts as an alcohol issue. Just quite confusing as its a grey area.
