How to poor alcoholic? >bought a 12 pack >told myself it would last a few days >drank 11 last night >just drank one this morning >on a super tight budget since unemployed >"dude its cool i'll buy on credit. i'll be employed soon"
You feel like you need to drink the most 'manly' drink, and care more about how others perceive you, instead of drinking whatever you're in the mood for? I sure hope not - That's sad. Amaretto is an Italian classic and goes really well with my breakfast. Pic related is my go-to drink and favorite otherwise.
>>701963410 If you're a proper alcoholic, there isn't must you can do to stem the hangovers because of the sheer volume you are sticking down your neck. I normally find downing a couple of pints of water before bed ease the dehydration. Have a serious junk food bender when you wake up -- not only does the grease mop up the toxins but the endorphins help with how low you're feeling. Follow this with an epic hard wank and some orgasm induced sleep and you are on your way to feeling much better.
>>701963737 It's related to the nerve endings in your brain literally getting fucked up. You should get an MRI scan as soon as possible - Make sure that you do not have any so called 'plaques' forming in your brain, because that can seriously fuck up your sensitivity in your entire body, among other things.
You know those stories about people who drink so much they literally go temporarily blind, before they pass out? That can happen if the nerves take too much of a beating, and in a worse case scenario can lead to permanently reduced vision or even blindness. You may also end up losing most of the sensitivity in your dick one day. Don't fucking risk it - Go see a doctor.
my worst negative with being alcoholic is the fucking acid reflux man, i wake up in the middle of the night with that shit searing my insides, im at the point where over the counter antacids dont even do shit anymore
>>701963956 I have always been a big fan of rum and have tried most of the popular brands and flavors and I have to say that Oakheart is the best - I strongly endorse it! I live in a shitty country where access to good booze is semi-limited so I have to get mine specially ordered but I still go through the trouble because I feel it's worthwhile. Try it! It's kind of smoky and richer than you'd expect.
>>701963862 I used to think the junk food helped. To lose weight and still be able to drink I started eating only once a day. Eating crap doesn't seem to be better than eating nothing at all as far as helping hangovers goes. For me, at least.
>>701961529 Here! And i have proof I have a drinking problem! Stay posted gonna prep a time stamp and grab coffee. I broke my back face and wrist from drinking and driving 4 years ago. Still drink heavy today
>>701964340 I find the junk food is just as much about the sustinence as it is about comforting myself cos I'm feeling so utterly shit about myself. It's science man -- filling your brain with endorphins helps keep the terrors at bay. Wanking and junk food tick that box for me.
>>701964453 Eh. I'd say that both MDMA and Xanax, in their own ways, stimulate my emotions better than alcohol - It just isn't as good for everyday use, and has a bunch of side-effects far worse than getting hungover.
>>701964361 Oh definitely me too. The longer the bender is directly proportional to how long the wank session is the next day. A good bender for me normally results in 3 wanks the following morning. Sometimes I leave myself completely exhausted from wanking so many times in one day, totally drained of all my testosterone and mojo. I have to eat a massive plate of red meat or something to boost myself back up. It's ridiculous.
>>701964712 Better as in more intense maybe. Though I've never tried it and only have a basic idea of the effects of that stuff. Alcohol is reliable and predictable though. I know when I'll get those good lows I crave and I know when I'll get the good drunkenness as well.
>>701964520 And how long have you been doing that? Any negative changes in your overall health? I know back in college I would drink about 13 beers and shots every other day and started getting really bad shits and heartburn
>>701964881 I'd say that Molly is just as predictable once you understand how it affects you, but it can be dangerous if you're the reckless type and don't take it seriously enough to remember to stay hydrated and whatnot.
Xanax on the other hand is like an orgasm in pill form - You'll feel good and after a while also very tired, but it'll fuck you up! Many people also experience memory loss far more severe than what alcohol causes, though it differs greatly from person to person. Withdrawals are TERRIBLE, though. Worst I've ever experienced.
Since this is an alcoholics thread I have a question for you guys coming from a guy who doesn't see the appeal in alcohol. I have a father who has been drinking a large amount of alcohol daily and it has landed him in the hospital twice. when we ask him why he continues to drink when he recovers he cant answer us. Just says he can do what he wants and that his families opinions don't matter. Do you guys know how he can keep doing this to himself when it obviously is putting a huge toll on his family? TL:DR > my dad is alcoholic >2 hospital trips last year from alcohol related troubles >recovers and drinks more than he previously did > says families opinions of him don't matter to him, just let me drink til it kills me >how can someone live like this?
Reporting in >>701964341 I drink shitty beer from the time I wake up until I pass out. Usually around 3-4 32 or 40 oz during the daybwhen busy. Then 2-3 more late before sleeping >I have night terrors when I don't drink until I pass out
>>701965192 it helps numbs my depression and stuff, but it also gives me satisfaction that im killing myself slowly in a way that people wont really notice, as i have no one really close to me, your dads a lucky guy, you guys should do all you can to get him into rehab or aa or beat the shit out of him, anything at all to help him out really
>>701964791 For sure. Glad I'm not the only one. The anxiety also really gets to me. I'll Be so fuckin anxious and so paranoid about the night(s) before, even if I didn't do anything bad, I'll just pace and pace and live in the hellish rhelm that is the aftermath. Its like the worst man. Drinking sucks. Yet I still do it everyday
>>701965185 Idk. Again, entirely inexperienced in the substance, but I get the impression they'd be too strong to really savour the emotions. I'm at the point where being drunk doesn't seem at all odd to me and I can just enjoy the feelz
>>701965625 So you would rather knowingly slowly kill yourself in front of your entire family who is trying to help you, just because you don't want to change your habit? He gets 80% of his calories from alcohol and only eats one small meal at dinner and calls himself "healthy" I would think he'd feel more like shit drinking that much rather than not drinking. Granted I've never been drunk before so I wouldn't know.
>>701965515 I used to get this but I found that changing my friends helps. If you feel guilty and paranoid everytime the day after a session, you're surrounding yourself with people who you can't be yourself with.
>>701965437 I understand that it can numb feelings, and im pretty sure thats what he is trying to do by drinking so much. His dad past away 36 years ago and he still bursts into tears at the thought of the man. But what I don't understand is we have all been trying to help him for the last 5 years and he refuses our help.
>>701961996 I "quit drinking" for two years......because I started snorting heroin. Now I'm off the methadone clinic and picking up the fragments of my life. Oh and back to at least a pint of bourbon and a couple six packs a day again. I'm hoping once I find a new job I'll have something to live for again and can go through each day without trying to numb myself.
>>701963410 Mixing kinds of drinks isn't a problem, it's just about the amount of alcohol.
>>701961978 Drink plenty of water and eat something salty every day. When I'm drinking I go through about a gallon of water a day. Never have hangovers, even when I have a shit day and end up drinking a half gallon of whisky.
>>701966311 Since its your old man, I'm really sorry you gotta deal with that anon, I truly am. My parents don't drink, but I do. Alcohol has the power to destroy beautiful things, and right now, your dad is powerless. I'm not a fucking expert, and I know it's hard to understand when you yourself doesn't drink, but an addiction means that they'll do anything to get a fix. Whether it's shootin coke or drinking beer. If he's not ready to except that he's hurting the people he loves, there isn't a goddamn thing that anyone in the world can do. I wish you the best anonymous
>>701967023 Than why didn't you write it that way in the first place? If they are both the same length one is not more condensed than the other, so I assume you mean more easily readable? Not trying to be an asshole, just generally curious. I figured you didn't know what TL:DR meant.
>>701965192 Addictions aren't logical, nor do they allow for emotional appeals. Your father, like many of us, is an addict. Drinking, for him, is far better than his family being "happier", and you need to realize that you wouldn't be "happy" if he just gave up drinking, you'd only be "happier". You want to take away what is likely the only thing in his life that gives him pleasure just so you and your mother can be very slightly happier, and that's selfish as fuck.
>>701967651 Protip. Keep an open bottle of hand sanitizer at your desk. The smell will throw them off. Also, if your place of employment has the hand sanitizer stands near it's entrances like some do, put it on your hands, but rub it on your clothes.
>>701967731 I was honestly curious. No hate. Just 8/10 drunk at 7:48 AM. Also, I was asking him questions, not picking on him. There is a difference. Based on the way you type I'm guessing that's a subtle difference you might have trouble picking up on.
>>701967750 no I would genuinely be happier because im not witnessing a man I actually care about slowly deteriorate to a pile of bones because going to the bar three times a day makes him happy. If drinking to him is better than seeing his three kids and wife happy than I don't want much else to do with the man.
>>701967739 So you posted the first part assuming people would completely ignore it and go straight for the greentext rendition? If you think people only want to read green texted stories, why didn't you just leave the first part out? By your own admission it was there just to be skipped. That's the point I was trying to make all along.
>>701968148 You would be only very slightly happier. In fact, you'd probably not be happier at all, supposing the man isn't an angry or violent drunk.
You wouldn't have any more quality time with him than you do now, because he'd very likely want nothing to do with you little shitheads without the alcohol there to numb the feeling of having to take care of three ungrateful assholes, he wouldn't be spending the money he saved on you kids because he knows you can get by with what he's been giving, and you would probably just spend as much time at your computer so you wouldn't even see him more often.
How would your life significantly change if he stopped drinking? It wouldn't. You're just a selfish prick who can't stand to see someone else trying to do whatever they can to be happy for a minute.
>>701968068 It's soda water with quinine and a little bit of sugar in it. Quinine glows under a black light, so for Halloween I freeze a bunch in an ice tray and make glowing Gin and Tonics out of them.
>>701968599 That's a pretty normal amount for grabbing a drink to get you out of bed in the morning. You start when you wake up and stop when you go to bed, chasing a buzz the whole day and finishing drunk.
>>701968565 this is spot on.. you cant live your life waiting for someone else to make you happy because that will never happen. People tend to disappoint when it comes to living to please other people.
I dont know about you but I know Im responsible for my own happiness and it usually involves a few smokes and drinks.
>>701969463 >Why bother trying to leave a dignified, pretty corpse? That is not the point but the living part is the point. What i meant is that going on like you are you are not gonna live for long and the rest of your life is going to be suffering if don't try to chance your ways.
>>701969734 >>701969385 why freeze that shit, when you can freeze natural fruit... like grapes or berries, most commonly used for wine, but still serves the purpose of keeping drinks cold without watering them down, plus you get a tasty treat
I know what your dads mindset is, iv been there, and right now his mindset is insanity basically.
You see it all starts with the warm cozy feelings alcohol give you.
Then you start having a few more drinks around bed time, because it puts you to sleep and you dont need a prescription for it.
You would be amazed that most alcoholics also suffer from anxiety related sleep problems.
Alcoholics have too many thoughts and worries entering their brains all the time, and they need to shut it out.
All the genius's/writers/inventorrs throughout time had to have one form of addiction to another to shut out the constant electrical surge of brain energy. They all shared one thing in common also, is they never slept.
Anyway, if you have ever been an alcoholic, you will remember the day when if went from being a pleasure to drink to A CONSTANT NEED TO STAVE OF WITHDRAWEL
Thats all it becomes, a game of drinking, nothing matters anymore, you start rationing your booze, putting of things to drink, getting loaded at night to sleep.
You father is too proud to admit that the withdrawals are a straight up hell on earth.
His nervous system is so used to him using alcohol as a reward system, that his nerves have become dependent, and when you suddenly take away that instant reward,
His body goes into insanity, quite literally.
>wake up with a weird inside shake and shocks in your body >anxiety consumes you and you have this terrible fear of impending doom >you cant make rational decisions >you skin and nerves are rapidly firing off >you thought are also firing off into randoms which causes more confusion and anxiety because you cant control your thoughts >cold sweat >you start visible shaking and having hallucinations
I have quite literally jumped out of bed and ran to my vodka bottle and sat on the kitchen floor sobbing and taking massive gulps to relieve me of this insanity.
>>701969939 because the stones or steel is much more dense than water so it will stay cold for a longer amount of time. Using fruit is good if you are interested in a blend, but it is still mostly water. There are companies that make ice cubes for wine now that are pretty much plastic filled with a gel that doesnt ruin the taste of wine.
You an Americunt? As a Britfag when I'm tight on money I buy three-litre bottles of some nasty 7.5% abv cider (like White Ace) and mix it with blackcurrant cordial. I don't know if they sell that kind of disgusting cider in the States though.
It costs about £4 a bottle and contains around 24 units.
>>701967651 im 27 anon, and I have been out there and back like you have, i can see the pain in your eyes.
An old black lady once held my hand and sobbed for me, i asked her what she was doing and she said
" i see the pain, the longing in your eyes son, you need to fill your life with love, stop hurting yourself, tell yourself you love yourself "
It was then that i had a massive break down righ there in a fucking shopping mall of all places, i cried like a little fucking baby anon, all the hurt, the pain and the sorrow came out in one instant "
I took a few weeks off of drinking, stayed locked in my bedroom for two days under blankets writhing of withdrawel.
Then my mind was clear, and i realized what kind of fool iv been.
I still drink, but never like that again anon.
If you have to cry let it out, and just tell yourself you love yourself, and stop hurting yourself anon.
>>701964341 I've managed to get my shit together a bit (not completely) but this time last year, my average day would be: 4 cans of bitter 4 cans of lager 4 cans of cider 2 alcopops A half-bottle of whisky or vodka.
I was on that every day for about four months (and smoking 40 cigs a day too).
>>701970637 And we choose a life of chasing the happiness and satisfaction that sobriety cannot provide us. The endless work days, too-frequent PTA meetings and five year old soccer practices, the agonizing dance recitals, the vapid couples that you're forced to befriend for your children's sake, a society in which the only course of legal action is to be a dickless whiner instead of a decisive and powerful person, the failing marriages, the unrealistic childhood dreams that fall to the wayside as the obligations of adulthood fill your day-to-day. For many of us, the only true freedom we are allowed, the only choices we are given, is what to drink that night.
"You know, just sometimes in between the first cigarette with coffee in the morning to that 400th glass of corner shop piss at 3AM, you do sometimes look at yourself and think... This is fantastic. I'm in heaven." -Bernard Black (Black's Books)
>>701964665 It's entirely subjective. If you can't do without it, if it's affecting your life in any way, or if you're hiding it from people then yes you have a drinking problem. That's an incredibly small about for a real soak though, I'd be able to do maybe three of those a day with relative ease when I'm at a low point.
>>701962515 A 12 pack is usually more expensive than bottom shelf piss whisky/vodka. Do a cost analysis of standard drinks per dollar, and I think you'll find you can get a liter of liquor far cheaper than beer.
>>701971386 My buddy got blackout drunk and pissed in his sleeping bag on the first night of a 14 day backpacking trip in the Hoh rainforest. Had to sleep in piss smell the rest of the trip. He got it at REI so instead of cleaning it afterward he just returned it like an asshole.
>>701971316 Black book is awesome. i have them all. You really have put some work into being miserable. anything can be shit if you want it to be. And you can be happy if you put some work in to it. Yes life isn't easy but deal with it. Actively ruining your life is not really a good plan and complaining constantly never really works for your own good.
>>701972094 You need more tequila in your life your too high strung. This is a peaceful place and you should be too. I prefer 13-15 shots (14Gold preference) early about 8AM then glide through the day with rum and coke. Not fancy run though or that spiced shit. Distilled keep ya drunk but not get you drunker shit. End the night with vodka and Dr Pepper. Half half on all mixed.
When I was younger, I never realized that growing up meant drinking a lot more to deal with how terrible the world actually is.
Once you grow out of that childhood/teenage mindset and see the world for what it really is,
A bottle of golden brown whiskey is the absolute escape at the end of the day.
Helps you wash away all the dirt and grime of your day, the awkward social interactions, the childish jerry springer bullshit from girls, the constant retarded garbage on the news about faggots and feminists.
Just wash it all away, wipe it away and start new in the morning for the next round of earthly torment.
>>701965714 Medfag here. Yeah, your liver is most likely fucked and I wouldn't be surprised if your memory is affected. You might want to seriously consider a change, as you are still young. I've seen more than one case of alcohol-related dementia in younger adults (mid to late 30s). It's horrible but can be somewhat reversed.
I'm not one to judge but consider help. And a protip: if you're not already on it, get your GP to but you on b1 vitamin injections (Thiamine) - you most likely, or more than likely, have use for it. That goes out to everybody of you heavy-drinkers.
I'm 31. I drink every day, a 6-pack of 16oz beers and a couple of nips. I've been doing this for almost 10 years.
To be honest I don't experience any of the medical issues people are describing ITT. I wouldn't be surprised if something was going on internally without my knowledge. But my memory is fine, I don't get the shakes, or any nerve pain, I'm 6' 3'' 205 lbs. I do have these tiny red dots on my skin, but I've been told they just come with aging. I don't know. Am I lucky? Can I still quit while I'm ahead?
I've quit drinking completely now, I'm 30. Been binge drinking for 10 years since I was 15, got worse from when I was 25 as I was just drinking anytime I could anything I could. Feel great now. No anxiety or depression, alcohol really fucks with your mental state, worse than your organs. but been clean for 7 months bank account is looking so good too, I still like going and socialising with friends but spend on average about £5/10 a night out rather than £80/130. Anyone can do it.
>>701971910 Now that I'm back, I can answer you. Happiness isn't something you have to work for, it's something you have or you don't. You could save your money and go to that concert, and it might be fun, you might be happy, or you can pour some liquor down your throat for less and guarantee that happiness. It's cheap, it's everywhere, and it's a surefire fix for an evening, and you can do it over and over and over and it never gets any worse.
"Ruining your life" is far too subjective to even bother bringing up. This is my life, and it is not a ruined life. I enjoy it, I'm happy with it. It isn't ruined. We don't tend to complain, either. You've asked for reasons, and I've provided them in a straight-forward manner that doesn't defy my only rule in life--write well.
"The world is a hellish place, and bad writing is ruining the quality of our suffering." -Tom Walts
