A--
I believe that if it takes a glass of wine or two to get through the day, that's fine. And if it takes a couple more to get through the night, that's ok, too.

I don't believe in driving under the influence, but, self-medication is a well-known phenomenon...especially with us who have mood disorders, and don't have the right med "cocktail", self-medication occurs quite frequently. Whether it is Tylenol-PM, Sudafed, wine, whiskey, pot, etc. And, there's no shame in trying to survive.

In fact, the world believes the shame is in trying NOT to survive. So...go figure. It's like dammed if you do, dammed if you don't.

You can always pull back on alcohol usage, but you have to be around to do it. And, you are just a kid! You have many years to go!

Winston Churchill once said "My rule of life prescribed as an absolutely sacred rite: smoking cigars and also the drinking of alcohol before, after and if need be during all meals and in the intervals between them."

I'm just saying, if that's what it takes to keep you around...OK.
