    I would strongly suggest you reduce your alcohol consumption.

    i will never understand this... just stop drinking to get wasted, drink a bit less, get drunk by all means but theres no need to get completly off your face.... I always have a better time when i can wake up in the morning not feeling too bad and i can actually remember how much fun i had the night before.

    i generally stop myself from drinking when i feel that i just about still have control over myself and actions. from that point it's water until i'm completely sober (usually bedtime)

    stop drinking so much.

    QFT. I like getting ****ed up once in a while, but most of the time I just like to have a good time, not go out to get wasted.

    Bull. You know that you are binge drinking, you know that this is very unhealthy, and you know that it is already affecting your cognitive functioning. I think you also know what to do next.

    Peer pressure is a bull**** excuse. Next it is: "I can stop anytime I want, I just don't want to is all...". You're heading for a drinking problem and you know it.

    And it's nothing to be proud of, either.

    i wouldnt put it as strongly as Nexxo but if your mates are being annoying just ignore them (or get them another drink and watch/laugh as they stumble around like a blind one legged clam)... a little self control goes such a long way

    21 in a matter of weeks, I've only had one hangover in my drinking career which is just passing the sixth year.

    I'd say you should drink less, or drink higher quality alcohol (No, not higher proof). The better stuff, IE, not the cheap **** from bars (Carling, Carlsburg etc) makes a world of difference.

    Dude, forget what your mates say. You're giving in to peer pressure. I got out and usually have one or two drinks then i'm on to coke and water. You'll notice how much money you save too. heck, get a pint of black current and lemonade, it'll look like cider n black!

    When your friends instruct you what to drink, they are hardly friends...

    Not drinking at all (Another pint always sounds like a good idea after the first, doesn't it..) is probably the best idea. If your friends get on your case about it, get some better friends or tell them to **** a few miles of off.
