I'm a 15 year old girl, and I've only ever had alcohol once (though I had no idea what it was at the time). I've always promised myself that I'd never smoke, never drink alcohol, and definitely never do drugs. However, whenever I'm at a party or any sort of event that involves alcohol, my mum has began trying to convince me to have some. Obviously I say no thanks.
Yet, inside I did want to try it. I've noticed recently that I've been getting, I guess “cravings” if that's the right word, and I've really wanted to try alcohol lately. I kept trying to shrug it off and just put it down to being curious, and that worked for a bit - but the urges are back and I've found myself even trying to secretly take some of my mum's alcohol when she's asleep. The only thing that's stopped me is anxiety and fear of being caught.
Does anyone know how to stop this? I have no idea where these “urges” suddenly came from, and this is all new to me so I don't know any ways to curb it.
Thanks in advance ^^
