    I've been at uni for approximately 4 months now so I'm starting to feel comfortable with the people around me. However, after numerous alcohol related incidents involving regretful actions I've decided to quit alcohol. I began to feel that I relied on alcohol to engage in the social side of student life. Safe to say I know it's going to be difficult, I'd love to hear from anyone who has been or is currently in a similar position.

    Why do you need help? I don't really drink as it can interact with some medication I take. I find it hardest when it's pre-drinks or similar as I'm the only one not drinking. I also feel incredibly responsible for all the people I'm with when they're drunk. If something happened to them and I'm the only sober one I feel I have to:

    a) look after them
    b) might get blamed for whatever happens to them as I should have stopped/protected them as I was coherent.

    Other than that it's kinda the same apart from the getting drunk bit. Not drinking means that you appreciate your friends and the banter/jokes/times you have, instead of letting alcohol make things funny for you.

    Good on you and good luck!
