don't believe i am an alcoholic--i drink and usually set a limit---and most of the time i stick to it--i know when to stop--i don't drink every day and i can go weeks without drinking without a problem--but on 3 occasions i have slept walked and went to the bathroom (only in 2 of the 3 occasions)in odd places--after a nite of drinking with my friends and it terrifies me--i remember everything about the nite--i remember going to bed--i remeber all of my conversations---my friends remeber me going to bed etc.---but i guess at some point in the middle of the nite i got up---with the recent episode i at first didn't think anything of it---i woke up the next day and had remembered that in the middle of the nite i opened the door to our hotel room (in search of the bathroom)and remember thinking opps wrong door when the bright lite from the hallway "woke" me--then the next day i woke up and found the waste basket by my bedside--and still didn't think much of it---but then later on i was looking for pen and paper and found something wet in a drawer by my friends bed with paper towels soaked---and thought oh she must have spilled something--and i saw the phone book lying on the floor---still i didn't think much of it---but then after asking her she said no she hadn't spilled anthing and thats when i put two and two together and concluded i must have gone to the bathroom in the drawer....the thing is im young and i want to be able to go out with my friends and get drunk every now and then and let loose---and no i don't need alcohol to have a fun time--as i sometimes volunteer to be the dd---i don't want to give up drinking nites with my friends---but i am really worried becuase i never know when or if i am going to sleep walk after a nite of drinking---becuase i will feel fine when i go to bed--i mean i may be drunk---but i am fully aware and have all of senses and even my friends say i a good drunk---becuase u can't tell--i walk a straight line and can talk normally...so should i give up drinking all together or is there a way to monitor this sleepwalking thing...? ---is this normal----what is normal in terms of drinking for college students--are our norms the same as the greater population--or are the different---i mean i know alcoholism is alcoholism--but how do we define the norm for college students...?
