Our expert says:
Sadly, teens ofen decide something is "cool" when it's actually dumb, dangerous and looks truly stupid. As you know well, a "couple of drinks" is fine - but more than that is NOT fine, and you become someone with lousy judgement, liable to do foolish things with major repercuissions, to make a fool of yourself, and if a driver even to risk other people's lives.
Memory blanks is a really good sign of drinking to the point of severely disordered brain function. And then you don't actually know what you mau have done ( your friends might not be a reliable source of information, and may not have seen everything you did ).
THis is a very false sense of confidence the alcohol creates - when drink or drugs makes someone confident they can fly ( as happens ) or that they can do things they acually cant ) real and serious damage can happen. It's a fake.
As you seem to have some concerns about being a bit stiff and inhibited, and wanting to relax in company - see a psychologist for something like CBT ( Cognitive-behaiour Therapy ) to solve these problems without creating further problems. And compared to the cost of drinking that much ( let alone the eventual cost of a liver transplant ) it's a bargain.
