AA meetings for teens? I need help?!

Question: AA meetings for teens!? I need help!?
I'm 15!. I drink every day!. Sometimes before school starts I take a couple of shots just to get me in the mood of wanting to go!. My friend has the same problem as well!. But she loves doing it!. I love how it makes me feel but I feel like I'm dying inside when I wake up the next morning (no I don't mean a hangover)!. I party usually every weekend and a lot of my other friends drink as well!. We get the drinks from her house or guys from our highschool!. This has been going on for about a yr now!. There are AA meetings for teens right!? I want my best friend to go too but she just won't stop!. She loves drinking!. And how do I stop if everywhere I turn there's alcohol!? Please no mean answers, yes I know what we're doing is illegal and damages our insides!. That's one of the reasons I want to stop!. And our parents, well my family is pretty preoccupied because my dad just got out of jail and her parents are just stupid!. Really!. We've gotten so good at hiding being drunk it's amazing!. A yr ago I wouldn't even of imagined me doing all this!. Help please!. My friend and I drank a whole bottle of wine yesterday!. I feel so damn bad!. What if I can't stop!?Www@FoodAQ@Com

Let me start off by saying that I am a police officer in Wisconsin and just 2 days ago I busted an underage drinking party!. The parents showed up and they were pissed as hell to say the least!. It sounds like you may be lacking the guidance at with your parents and your peers of what a normal teenage life should be like!. I can tell you with great certainty that the majority of arrests that I make working the night shift are in some way alcohol related!. I deal with the same drunks over and over!. I drank in high school a little bit and in college quite a bit!. I now see the real impact that it can have on someone if they let alcohol control their life!. They lose a grip on reality and it is a continual downward spiral!. You are young with all of life's opportunities ahead of you!. Now is the time in your life that you begin to define yourself!. You do not want to be an alcoholic in 5 years going in and out of jail and detox for reasons that you can't remember because you were to intoxicated to remember!. I don't know you, nor do I know the circumstances around your alcohol use!. I do know that you have posted this question because there is a voice in your head telling you that the path that you are headed down is the wrong one!. It is only now that the voice has gotten louder and you are realizing the gravity of the situation that you are in!. Wherever you live, there is help!. Every underage drinker that gets arrested in my city has an alcohol assessment course that needs to be completed!. If you contact your local PD they will be able to provide you with that information!. Don't be afraid to ask police for the help!. We would rather see you once to give you the information you need and never see you again (meaning you got on the right track) than to see you every few months when you are arrested!. If you have to lose your friends because they no longer want to hang out with you because you don't drink then really how good of friends were they!. I wish you the best!.
