i started drinking at the beginning of this year, at least all the time, i've drank since i was 18, but then, in may i turned 21. i never had much of a problem getting it before i turned 21, i just had to go through a friend, but then when i turned 21, i was buying a six pack every night and drinking the entire thing. not even drinking socially, but in my room, alone. i did it to try to numb the pain and the depression. now, almost 6 months later, i am still drinking every night and now during the day i've been going through withdrawal. so i end up drinking in the middle of the day. and i can't seem to stop. i'm in counseling for my depression, and i've told her that i drink quite a bit, but i tend to make it a point not to show that it worries me and that i'm starting to think i have a problem. i have always had a lot of issues with addictions. i was a smoker from age 12 to 20, the only reason i quit that is because i had to be put in the psych ward after a suicide attempt, and you can't even smoke on the property, so i went almost 2 weeks without a cigarette, and when i got home i tried to start again but it tasted like crap and while i was in the hospital i was diagnosed with asthma. so i quit. and i am still addicted to self-injury, and prescription pain killers. i also have another addiction that i choose not to mention. so i am prone to addictions i guess i could say, and it runs in the family. my grandfather was an alcoholic and basically drank himself to death, he had liver cancer. so i'm just wondering if i really do have a problem???

I'm trying to exercise daily. I was doing fairly well until I sprained my ankle 2 weeks ago but now I'm getting back on the horse. Today I walked over a mile with my arm weights that are about 22lbs total. I was out of shape and it was hard on my arms. I also did my 30 situps. I'm also going to drink a lot of water and try to eat healthy. I do tend to have a sweet tooth but I'm cutting...
