Christi, you know what, don't beat yourself up over this.
Everyone has a drink occasionally, loads of people smoke, and do other stupid stuff everyday. You've drank once, and you've seen the reaction you got the next day. Life is about
chances, and risks. You know the consequenses and what choices you can make.
The reason your therapist didn't have a go at you, is because it's normal to experiment with alcohol. Noone can shout at you for that, as part of life is taking those risks and finding things out for yourself. You're still young and you're still going through this.
Totally denying yourself from everything, isn't good for you, you begin to feel less than normal, and that can be damaging too.
Don't beat yourself up over one drink, it's not the end of the world, it doesn't mean you're suddenly going to turn into an alcoholic and sprout horns. You're experimenting with what normal people your age do. You just also know that you have to be warey about
the amount you drink, and how often you drink. You know the risks and you know the consequenses and you know how your medication might effect this.
Just don't go overboard and be careful. Know your limits. And like Karen says, you are a good person, remember that!
