    Try getting her to talk to you/a close friend about this, but if she still wants to drink socially, she'll continue to do so. Really don't know how drinking can help her feel in control though...

    ETA: If you try telling her to stop drinking etc, it probably won't help, as she'll feel like your trying to take control. Maybe talk to her about her reasons, what's going on that may be causing her to feel like this etc. I still stand by 'it's her life & body' though, unless it starts to affect her negatively.
    yh i agree that its her life
    i just care about her health i dont want her to do something that shell regret in the future.
    OK a new question
    What if she drinks everyday or like more then once a week and i ask her about it and all she says is its my life but she knows that its affecting her health ??
    what should i do then
    because i was talking to her friend today and he was encouraging her and he also said that its her life and that i should let her get drunk . one of the reasons that i dont like it is that im not there with her so i wont know what shes doing and id be getting worried as were in 2 different cities.

    Edit - Ok so she went out yesterday night and got drunk. she texted me a lil while ago saying that shes gonna go out so i asked what she was going 2 do and she sed "get drunk F*** about. i dont expect you to be happy i just want you to understand i need to escape"

    i dont no what to do anymore ill give her space and i think im going to take steffi.alexa's advice and ask for reasons..
