Well first off I'm not an alcoholic I never drink but when I do it's not good I've got alcohol out of my life. It's a decision I made that I think is for the best. But here's my problem I wet out with a close friend of mine and her good guy friend I got soo drunk just drinking and walking around we decided to go in to this bar I didn't even realize how drunk I was until we got there. Anyways too make a long story short I was talking gibberish I insulted a few older men that I thought were hitting on my friend I freaked out and was terrible to my friends good guy friend. I don't even know him that well and was a complete jerk to him now I am depressed I acted like such an idiot I've been down on myself and can't stop thinking about I've been just crying on and off feeling ashamed guilty and awful I wanna make things right but am so ashamed of myself that going out in public is really hard. I'm just wondering how can I recover from this and go back to the way things were please someone help me I'm looking for advice not negativity I feel bad enough already. Thank you for your time.

If you have problems when you drink, maybe you should try not drinking. That eliminates the problem and ensures you won't embarrass yourself or your friends anymore. There is help here and out there. Just ask around. Good Luck. I used to embarrass myself, my daughters, the neighborhood, onlookers, you name it. I feel for you. Sober now 23 years. It's not a death sentence.

Hi Unsuretoo,

Welcome to EmpowHER.  If you continue to have this problem with alcohol, of not knowing when you have had too much to drink.  It's important to get help from a counselor soon, before it can become worse of a problem.
