    if i drink at home, dont even have to drink alot, i always feel desperate to socialise and go partying, even though my nights out arent that great. i never feel like this at any other time, only when ive had one or two drinks.
    i also feel like i wanna be more socialble and even though im known as really shy, i feel like i could just message someone i know in real life on the internet, even though theyd find it weird. its as if i want something to happen in my life. but i dont do anything cuz i know id regret it in the morning!
    though i have chatted to an ex friend when drunk once and was more confident and even invited her to my house....even though shes cooler than me and i wouldnt ask her when sober.

    does anyone else get these effects, even after just a tiny bit of alchol

    A lot of people find that alcohol gives them a bit of 'dutch courage' etc. People can lose their inhibitions :yep:

    I don't think you should worry about the effects of two drinks though, unless you are a major lightweight it won't tend to affect you too badly. A problem comes however if you start relying on alcohol to give you that little bit of courage and become more social.

    As for messaging people, if you know them in real life then I'm sure that they wouldn't find a message to be weird at all. Just go for it with a "Hey, how are you? Up to much this weekend?" or something.

    well i would say i know most of them , their more like people from school, but i was really quiet in school, so they wouldnt find it weird. i hardly ever drink...but you do kinda feel life might be easiier after a glass of wine
