relationship problem : drink

I'm with my boyfriend 2 years, We are so good together, honest, attracted, in love, love each others company, basically can't get enough of each other. But with vodka we are both a nightmare. We get paranoid, angry or upset. Its sickning that we can be so perfect but when we drink together, its horrific.Once i was so angry i ended up hitting him, i've regretted it ever since and he's forgave me. Do we need to break up or is there anything we can to do that can allow us to socialise and drink with our friends,we are so in love, but it is getting too much.

please help

It sounds like both of you have problems with alcohol. Usually, when people have significant problems when consuming alcohol, they have to give up drinking totally. They can't be "social drinkers". That is not to say, that it can't be done, but it would take a lot of effort on both of your parts.

You should both seek counseling, individually and together. You are only 19, so this is probably just going to get worse with time.

Good luck.
