    Hello all,

    I am a 22 yr old recent college graduate and I am slowly realizing alcohol has made me forget that this is should be the best time of my life.

    I drank a good amount in college on the weekends, but not what I believed to be alcoholic behavior when compared to the drinking of other kids around me. A few months ago I started to notice that on Sunday mornings( after going out the past 3 nights with everyone else) I would feel much worse than I had in previous times of my life. The uneasy feeling would last all day, then I would have trouble sleeping. By monday night i’d feel fine. Unfortunately I did not realize the warnings signs, and repeated this process for most of the school year.

    At the present time, I am at the point where if I drink enough to feel “drunk” the night before, I feel horrible all the next day (w/ mild withdrawal symptoms). The worst came this weekend; I went out 3 nights in a row and felt pretty bad on Sat so I stayed in. Around 10pm I had a full blown panic attack and thought I was going to die. I realize the graveness of my body getting to that point and need help.

    I honestly don’t think I have exhibited alcoholic behavior over the last 4 years, but my body seems to be affected like I have drank every day for the last 20 years.

    If anyone has ever experienced a similar situation or has any advice at all, I would be thankful.
