If you want to be OK you will be. I'm not sure what the incident was or what you've done besides the drinking to start to work through it, but asking for help is the most important step. How serious is this problem with alcohol - you say you're grades are only down in one class, but what is REALLY going on? I can relate to this in more ways than you know - I was a classic overachiever with great grades and every prof loved me - I also spent most of my time drunk or high and none of them ever knew. When things started to slip a little I told myself it was just one B on a test, or one term paper that was late. I didn't stop it there and get help so it got worse. Stop, take stock of your life and how this is really affecting it, not just school but work family friendships, and ask yourself if you are working through the incident or covering/numbing it with the alcohol. Decide what you want to do, what you need to fix and then talk to someone you trust, or if you really have a serious problem a substance abuse counselor and get yourself back on a path you can live with and thrive in.

Substance abuse counselor here: Just say no, and really that is all there is to it, often we start to party, and never get that the party is supposed to end, and then begin again. its a power of choice, you know are aware of the consequences of your choices, so get back to work. Do not get caught up in crap where you can blame this or that for your choices, just get focused on what your priorities are, reinstate your goal oriented behavior, and catch up, you can , you know you can, anything else is just a story. Sure if something bad happened, you can numb out the pain, but pain is a good indicator so that you get your lessons or modify things. sooooooo no story, just school work, these experiments with drugs and alcohol is like quicksand, some can get out before they are up to their nose in sand, some can't why wait and see?
if at this point you think you need a counselor by all means seek one, or an AA meeting or two, but the truth is, if you don't buy it, accept it, consume it, there is no problem with it. Right?

STOP!!!!!!!!!!!!!! You don't need to ask us that question? You know why? Only you can determine if you'll be okay or not. But if you believe in God, I can tell you yes. Go seek help and get through these issues. Your education is too serious to play with. I say you'll be all right if you seek help. But you shouldn't need me to tell you that, if you don't know you'll be okay then there is another issue we gotta deal with. You'll be all right just stay strong. Remember with God for you nothing can ever come against you that you can't handle.
