    Please help! If you've seen my profile page, you'll know I'm only a teenager, so this may come across as a bit shocking. You see, for a while now, I've had an urge to drink wine. At times it's not so bad, other times it's all I can think about. I do drink wine on occasion, but recently, I've been wanting it more and more. I went to a local precinct with a friend and saw a half-empty wine bottle. If I'm being honest...I wanted to take it, but there were too many people around (Goddamn you good summer weather!) and now I'm in turmoil. I don't know if this is an indication of alcoholism or anything, so I've turned to TSR to help. Please give me a reasonable answer, instead of ****ging me off and calling me an alchy! This is serious matter.

    On the first one, I had to answer ALL the questions after getting three out of twelve on the interview version. On the second one, I scored two, which indicated I have a problem...

    Thanks for the help, I guess...

    The fact that you didn't grab the bottle suggests you have the ability to control your urges but I suggest you see your GP if you're worried it's influencing your mental state as it's not ' normal ' to have such a relationship with 🍷

    It's certainly worth having a chat with your GP or a drug and alcohol service then , there;s not a lot to say other than that and if you arethe kind of person who gets theshakes if they don;t drink stopping cold turkey is a bad idea.
