    Hey, sorry if this post isnt right for this forum. Not sure where else to post it.

    Anyway, I turned 21 a couple of months ago. I had never gotten drunk, mainly because I haven’t been that drawn to liquor. I am way more attracted to drugs that stimulate, but you know, you do what you can to avoid bad situations, whatever substance is involved.

    Last night, there was a wedding. And at that wedding, there was an open bar. I made it a rule to only have one drink- but one turned to four by the end of the night with social pressure and the increasing frustration I got with my mother acting way younger than her age. I don’t remember much besides little tidbits of stuff. Four drinks dont sound like a lot, but mind you, I am a lightweight and they were very potent beverages.

    Long story short, I learned that I don’t ever want to get drunk again, or develop a drinking habit. I am the only one today in my family to be having a ‘hangover’. My sister and my mom both feel they had a blast and they want to do it again, but I am frustrated, scared, and sad that I put myself in that situation.

    I do remember my mom being very loud, something that bugged me. I also remember drinking so I would more easily ignore her.

    So, in the end of the day, I feel like I learned a lesson and thankfully I wasn’t sucked in. I don’t want to look like my mom when I’m older, and I don’t want to be in another situation where I look like I have my eyes open underwater, and all that bad stuff.

    Today, everyone was talking about how fun it was to drink and party- except for me. I just kept to myself and felt ashamed of what I did. I was angry that such even happened.

    So, I don’t know what to discuss other than to get some other opinions and reflections. Thanks!
