How bad is it to drink by yourself?

Ok so this guy that I was kind of seeing was actually seeing another girl behind my back and I've just got into a fight with my housemates, who are going out. All my friends are either out or busy working, and there is a box of wine with my name on in the fridge.

Would it be wrong to drink myself silly tonight?

I really just need reasurance that it's fine, not sympathy, so it would really help if you just vote that it's ok!

Yes. It makes no sense and it won't help to make you feel better

Re: How bad is it to drink by yourself?

yes, it'd be wrong.
instead of dealing with your issues like an adult, you resort to drinking the pain away. first sign of alcohol dependency. you start doing it now, you'll do it whenever things get a little rocky.
go for a walk or something instead...or rent a movie.
anything but get wasted.

It might relax you. It depends how much you're looking to drink.

But isn't she like one of the most spoiled people on this board? Maybe she doesn't know how to do those things or they are too hard?

That is a potential short-term happiness that could potentially lead to long-term unhappiness.

I understand that you feel like crap, but it's better to eat a bucket of ice cream or something than to actually use any substances that are that addictive.

i'm sure many alcoholics have said the same thing.
but you've made up you mind to get fucked already, so there's really nothing that anyone can say to persuade you to deal with your issues differently.

good luck with everything though.

Re: How bad is it to drink by yourself?

having glass of wine with a meal is fine. even if one is alone.

however drinking BECAUSE one is pain or otherwise unhappy is ALWAYS (yes even once) a bad idea even if it is just one tiny glass of wine or beer.

Thank you for being so understanding, but if I do become an alchoholic one day I'll pm you and apologise!

Re: How bad is it to drink by yourself?

DON'T DRINK BY YOURSELF!

Alcohol is a depressant and being by yourself won't help matters. I already tried committing suicide once when i was drunk after a night of drinking with my friends because drinking only made the problems i had seem worse.

If you lived closer you sure as hell would be able to go out with me tonight!

Not to sound shallow, but why don't you go out anyway. You're REALLY hot, i don't think anyone will mind if you randomly walk into a party(if you're still in college). If not i'm sure if you go to the bar you might some people you know or you could always try to be friendly with some people there and have a good time. That's definitely depending on the bar though.

But like the other poster said i guess there isn't much of a reason to discuss this further. Sounds like you already made up your mind.
