    Whats good people.

    Basically I used to be anti-drugs, anti-drinking. Was sober until I turned 21, and recently I went to a family house party. I met family that I didn't see in years and so in happiness I started drinking too much alcohol - to the point where I just don't remember anything.

    I'm under the impression that I may have said nasty things to people there, given that I hate some of them - but when sober I tend to be quiet.

    The thing is, as much as getting drunk is bad - don't you think that it maybe unfair for someone to hold a grudge against you for saying something when you were drunk?

    It depends on what you said. Sometimes it can be said that when we are drunk, we have no filter, so we can speak the truth that we hide within ourselves. Or on the other hand, we can talk to make others feel bad, there is no filter to stop this.

    It was a really bad idea to start drinking. There is no shame in being quiet and sober. Learn your lesson. If needs must, apologise to those who you hurt. Within time, if you can show that you are committed to change, those family members will start to respect you, and you may think differently of them.
