I do not have a drinking problem!?!

Question: I do not have a drinking problem!!?
So I am having this problem!. My family thinks I might have a drinking problem, and I know that I dont!. How do I convince them otherwise!?

Background info:
Im 20years old and in college
I havent been drunk in over 5 months
If i drink its only on friday or saturday, never both
I dont drink every weekend
Im not aggressive when I drink
I drink in social situations
I dont drink to get drunk
I rarely have hangovers and always remember my nights
On average I drink four times a month
I usually only get drunk on special occasions (ie birthday)
Uncle and brother are alcholics

Now what sparked my mother to think i have a drinking problem is because last friday around 4:00, right when i got out of work and school, I had ONE beer!. I was stressed out and i just wanted to relax with ONE beer!. She flipped out, told the whole fam, now they all think I have a drinking problem!!

WTF do i do!?Www@FoodAQ@Com

Your mother is proabably just worried about you, considering your family has a history of drinking problems!. Instead of flipping out on her and yelling at her that you are NOT an alcoholic, you need to be a bit more rational and understand where shes coming from!. Be calm and sincere by telling her, there is no problem and nothing to worry about!. This may not fix EVERYTHING but it may get her off your back a bit!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

i think you need to sit your mom down and explain exactly what you did up there to her add your grown and in collage having a beer after work doesn't make u an alcoholic, your young having fun and sound like your smart enough not to get your self really drunk and into a sticky situation your mom probably just worries about you and will realize your just young and having fun you don't have kids and aren't married,Www@FoodAQ@Com

Your drinking problem is that you're not drinking enough!

Really now, it's none of their business!. If one beer makes you an incorrigible alcoholic in their eyes, then there is nothing that you will do or say that will convince them otherwise!.

It's enough to drive you to drink I tell ya!Www@FoodAQ@Com

This is a screening test designed to help you determine if you have a problem with alcohol!.
