Blackouts while drinking began and getting more frequent, why? I have been a social drinker since...
age 13 and am 20 now, my alcohol intake hasn't increased and I only experienced my first black out at 18, now they happen almost every time I drink no matter what the type of alcohol. I used to drink the same intake if not more at one time when I was younger, so why did they start and what causes them, I can't think of any changes!
You have answered your own question. No one starts drinking at 13 as a "social" drinker.
You've got a problem and should really be seeing a doctor. You may have a serious liver problem, a brain tumour or a heart problem. People do die in their 20's from these kinds of things. See a doctor.
I'm not a Doctor or a Therapist but I am very familiar with drinking alcohol and have written about it here on HP. If I were you I would give a try to leave your addiction behind. Blacking out while drinking maybe a sign for you to quit drinking. I would be scarred to death if I was blacking out as much as you say.
You are a young person and have a long life ahead, so why not slow up or quit drinking altogether and enjoy your life.
If I could do it you can too!! give it a try, you won't regret it.
Don't act like a idiot, stop drinking and go to your doctor, you need help. If you tell your doctor that every time you perform an action, something bad happens, he'll tell you to stop that action.
Take your brain out of your gut, your drinking mates, and your drinking hand, and refit it in your skull where it belongs.
Uhh okay guys. I'm not an alcoholic, I don't binge drink..I don't drink every day or because I need alcohol, I don't even drink every week. I've gone months without drinking before! It' really only when at social events I'll have some beers or mixed drinks..ya know..celebrations..new years..college parties? I was 13 as a Freshman in highschool..I don't know what highschool you went to, but occasionally drinking at that age is where most people began. I NEVER said I drank huge amounts! in fact I would say onaverage I drink LESS than most people my age. Ask any college student, they have blacked out alot, I just want to know WHY alcohol causes these black outs because I never experienced them before age 18, so why start now since I havent increased my alcohol intake and am not an alcoholic!
You say that you are drinking the same amount that you always did, but your body is responding in a different way. Correct?
If that is the truth for you, then I think it is reasonable to surmise that your body is responding to alcohol in a different way.
My prognosis is liver damage. Your body simply can't process the booze like it used too. Let us know what your doc says.

I was diagnosed with severe PTSD in 1998 by DRs in Sydney Australia. I was told that I fit into the 2% category which do NOT usually survive. I must admit, this has been the wildest roller coaster ride that I've ever been on. Blackouts, "waking" as if from a nightmare,...

Why do so many adults equate "fun" with drinking alcohol?Why do so many poke, push or prod others to drink and why do so few adults know how to have fun without alcohol?
