As a social drinker in his early-20s, he admits he got drunk at a party and took things too far. But he insists he's just drinks in social settings and doesn't have an addiction. However, this time, he ended up in the hospital.

I spent the rest of weekend in the hospital recovering. It was a one time stupid mistake.
Yesterday, I went over to my parent’s house for dinner.

To summarize, he said that my family was worried for me and wanted me to go to treatment.
