Do I have a drinking problem?

Hallucinations, distortions, micropsia, macropsia, oh my! Lately I've experienced some weird effects after taking no more than ONE DRINK: 1) heightened taste sensation (a single sip can strike me as tasting like cherry tart, custard, pineapple, roast turkey, toffy and hot buttered toast, all rolled into one), 2) weird body dysmorphia (is that the right word?), in which I feel smaller than a mouse one moment, and the next, it's like "Attack of the 50 Foot Woman" or something, then 3) suddenly I'll find myself crying a river. Literally.

Additionally, 4) I'm seeing and hearing things that I'm pretty sure cannot be real (talking rabbits? don't even ask), 5) I lose all sense of time, and 6) I'm never sure what I'm going to be, from one minute to another.
I'm healthy, under 25, don't do drugs, am a light social drinker (tea, mostly). Again, this happens after taking one drink -- and it's not like the bottle is labeled "poison," or anything. YANMD, but wtf? Would you tell me, please, which way I ought to go from here?
