Hi there and welcome to Ask Alex.
Thank you for sending your question to Ask Alex. We’re glad you were able to get in touch.
You asked if it is normal to go through 12 bottles of prosecco in a week. We would be concerned for your health if you are drinking 12 bottles of prosecco in a week. The recommended low weekly alcohol guidelines for adults are for men, less than 17 standard drinks (170g pure alcohol) spread out over the week, with at least two alcohol-free days and for women, less than 11 standard drinks (110g pure alcohol) spread out over the week, with at least two alcohol-free days.
If you have a look at the following websites and articles, spunout.ie/signpost/how-to-know-if-you-have-a-drinking-problem and www.childline.ie/how-i-feel/ you can find out more information and advice.
We also feel that chatting to someone about it can help. Have you a trusted adult that you could speak to, to tell them how your feeling? This could be a family member or a youth worker.
