Re: Parents think I'm an alcoholic
You are drinking/smoking Pot EVERY OTHER DAY until you PASS OUT.And your parents think that the problem is severe enough to warrant throwing you out of the house.It DOES sound like you have a problem to me.You did not mention how long you have been doing said behavior btw.And just because you are a 'mellow drunk', don't have the shakes the next morning, and don't get behind the wheel and 'drink and drive', does not mean that you do not have a problem.Here is a simple test, can you go for an ENTIRE WEEK without drinking and smoking Pot?
If you can't do it, then you do have a problem with alcohol to some degree.A.A. is not a cult, and you don't have to do anything but sit there and listen to other people talk about their problems.And for every mental health 'expert' who opposes A.A., there are a million such psychiatrists, therapists etc. who think that A.A. is beneficial for people that have problems with alcohol....
Go to an A.A. meeting, sit there for a hour, and just listen to some of the people talk about their problems with alcohol.You might find that some of their stories strike a chord with you.It's free, and all you have to do is sit there and listen.You have nothing to lose, and maybe something to gain by doing so.
Try to show your parents that you are committed to being clean and sober for a week or two, and are going to go to some A.A. meetings.If you can do this, then they probably will give you another chance, and not throw you out of the house right away.Something like that, is usually the LAST resort of concerned parents.Give it a try!
