When I drink, I always find out that there are new ways to fail myself.

Its depends. If you enjoy it, and it doesn't run or damage your life, then you're most likely in the clear. Its about disicpline- drinking in moderation.

Shall we recap:

1. you are only 19 and have been drinking for 7 yrs
2. you are asking others if they think you have a problem
3. you justify your drinking by saying "you are having fun" news isn't a daily event
4. some are telling you or giving you different measures of how to tell if you have a how often, how much, what you are drinking
5. you have a genetic predisposition to alcoholism (look at your brother) like other illnesses, addiction is genetic
6. there is NO level of functional or not........addiction is mental, social, physiological and even if you play "the game" of how much and when, if your mind or thoughts are consumed with "when and what" then YOU ARE
7. if you do something 1 or 2 times....its trying /experimenting
3 or more using it
It is sad to know that you don't think that you can be in the same situation as your brother........I bet he thought the same do all addicts. Please get some help so you can have a BETTER life. I so thank you for protecting our freedom but want you to learn how to be free from the life that will be ahead...............
