Hi I am 16 years old

Every Friday,Saturday and sometimes Sunday nights I go out drinking with my friends. Well most of the time I drink too much and get full(Drunk) well I want to know is that to much Alcohol for me to drink 3 times a week.

The only reason I drink Alcohol is to have enough confidence to dance and to chat up woman otherwise I wouldnt be able to.

I have tried not drinking but its not as fun because I am always thinking about what people are thinking of me etc and I cant get girls as easy.

Plz help

To be frank, you should not be drinking alcohol at all, the legal age for alcohol consumption in England is 18.

So, that's really the only answer we can give you. It is not right/healthy for you to be drinking at all.

From the guidelines

Scarleteen cannot and will not answer questions which pertain to explicit sexual technique or illegal activity, and posts which request such material will be closed or deleted, which includes, but is not limited to, such questions and subjects as:
• How to perform specific sexual activities (i.e., "How do I give a blow job?" "What are some new sexual positions?")
• Illegal drug use or drug abuse (including alcohol use under the legal drinking age)
• Illegal or patently unsafe sexual activities (i.e., bestiality, statutory rape, incest, purposefully transmitting disease or infection, etc.)
• Stated intent to engage in potentially dangerous or illegal activities or practices

I'm not sure what sort of answer you're looking for. It sounds like you already know you may have a problem.

Binge-drinking is seriously unhealthy at any age, and drinking to deal with social anxiety is a set-up for dependency.

As Smurf's pointed out, it's illegal for you to purchase alcohol from a bar or licenced premises in the UK anyway - that limits the help we can give you here.

But here are some UK links to give you more information and support in behaving more healthily - some of them are specifically oriented towards teens:

Drinkline is a free and confidential helpline which can give you advice and point you towards local resources and supports:

0800 917 8282 (24 hours)
