Whenever i have a little alcohol i need to drink pretty much til i pass out, and i actually crave it, i didn’t know craving alcohol was even possible but i do crave it. i can last maybe 2 days without drinking but then i just cannot mentally or physically function without it, i believe it’s real but feel like i’m a weakling saying the reason i drink is cause of an “addiction”. So what are your thoughts?
thanks, yeah i just don’t know, cause it is one of those addictions that gets called a “false addiction”. what should i do?

thanks chimom. i’m so happy that the people commenting actually are real commenters an not trolls. i’ve probably dissapointed you all by drinking heaps more whilst you’ve replied. dammit i feel stupid

Alcohol Addiction Symptoms: How to Quit Drinking and Smoking at a Young Age and What Will Happen to My Body?

Question by y2j: How to quit drinking and smoking at a young age and what will happen to my body?
OK I am 17 years old, and have been drinking since 14. I never really considered my self an alcoholic. But I would drink heavily at times specially this last summer probably every weekend Friday, Saturday, at times even Sunday. I really enjoyed drinking because I would make me feel good and I always had a good time, I always made excuses to drink. Smoking wise I also started at 14 when I started high school Probably Before school, and after and many if I would ditch. At home I really would not smoke because of my mom. I only smoke when i drink or go out with friends so It wont be that hard. I want to know the best ways to avoid drinking and smoking when I am offered them. I also want to know what damage has happened to my body and what will happen as I stop drinking and smoking. BTW its my new years resolution to quit these and start hitting the gym more to be more fit by the summer time.
