I was about 9 when I first tasted a bit of alcohol, by my nan on my dads side, which made my mum pretty angry...
I started drinking when I was 11/12, but started PROPERLY when I was 13 and it become a problem as I'm pretty much an alcoholic, which is REALLY bad I know, but atleast I admit it, and with help from family and friends, I am so much better.
I'm 21 now.
Alcohol has messed me up, I'm completely like Ozzy Osbourne now.
I used to drink when I wake up, all through to early hours of the morning, so basically never really stopped.
Tralissa I really hope that you are able to battle your addiction. ((HUGS)) I've seen alcoholisim first hand from someone that I love dearly and is very close to me and it does alot of damage, I hope you can be helped before it's too late.
