Our expert says:
Of course it is Possible that your current troubles are in part related to the troubles you experienced with your mother and her alcoholism, but this seems unlikely to be a useful or complete explanation, and should be viewed more broadly. The problems you describe, though, akin to a form of panic when the guy you like is to be drinking alcohol, even though he apparently has no drinking problem, is surely related to a form of over-generalisation from your experiences with your mother.
CBT ( Cognitive-Behaviour Therapy ) is probably the most useful form of treatment to help you re-evaluate this set of fruitless automatic assumptions and responses to such situations, and to revise your habitual manner of responding to more useful ways.
