When I have had a few drinks I harm myself. I wake up
With bruises. Why do I do this?

Might be a sign of some suppressed self-hatred. I'm no expert, so take what I say with a grain of salt. But when I self-harm, it takes the form of beating myself to the point of bruises as well. Maybe something about drinking brings out something in you? Hard to say, either way, welcome to the forum, I hope you find this place to be helpful. :)

Drinking amplifies how you feel. If you have something going on inside, drink will bring it out. So I guess the question is, what's going on right now?

Are you on medication? I have drunk twice since January, admittedly a lot each time. Have woken those times with injuries and bruises and absolutely no memory of how they have happened or what I have done, just having to piece things together with the evidence. If you think that it might be similar with you, please stop drinking. It’s too much of a risk.

Drinking has a way of making people angry. Without the drink you’d probably harm yourself less. But you still need to get to the bottom of why you feeling not good and this way to begin with. Prior to drinking that is.

drinking can bring out suppressed violence and feelings. maybe you can try drinking a moderate amount that doesn't make you black out
