Girlfriend drinks moderately, and doesn't seem to care it's bad?

Ok, so I'm not going to be too personal, but I'm in high school, with my girlfriend of 3 months. She has repeatedly gotten tipsy or even drunk at parties with her friends, and no matter how much I tell her that it's not good for her, she denies me and says that she does it because it's fun and that she has other ways of having fun at parties. Both of my parents are doctors, so I know what drinking moderately as a teenager can do to you, and I just wish to get across to her that what she's doing isn't good for her. Maybe I'm not allowed to have my opinions towards her decisions, but I care for her well-being and I need to know what to do. Any advice?

I am sure her parents are not aware of this, tell her parents, tell your teachers, they can make her understand better.

Hello and welcome to EHF !


I went through your query and i understand your concern.Its good to be caring for your loved ones. You can use the card of relationship to help her out of this addiction. If she doesnt care about your suggestions, i believe you should find yourself another partner as a bad company could have a bad influence.



Take care
