I almost have to laugh when I read your posts...You remind me of myself all the time. I seriously doubt you will end up with any of the SERIOUS mental issues you read about on the internet. I am guessing you binge drink and then search topics like "alcohol and brain damage," etc. Yes, those things are real and out there, but they take a LONG time and a LOT of drinking to develop.
What that doesnt mean is that you should continue your current ways. Im guessing you have these intense worries and high stress for the next 3 days or so after a heavy drinking binge, and then you start feeling fine again...until you do it all over.
I havent completely cut drinking out of my life, but I have cut way down, and eliminated binge and solo drinking completely.
