After two months of being sober, I succumbed to addiction and have been drinking for three days every night.
Nowhere as much as I used to but still.

Hi I was just getting over a breakup last night and had I think 4 shots or so of Grey Goose vodka straight up and also a beer or two. This morning I threw up like really bright yellow bile. Am I gonna die?

Dang I think I'd die if I drank that much, and I'm 280lbs. Had a quarter of a 705ml bottle of gin some months ago and I was really drunk. I had totally understimated how long it would last too. We had an introductory evening for elementary school children at my school that day and I was showing films to those nine year old kids while being totally wasted, lol.

@Booteefool
Not giving a pic, but I'm 26 years old and get drunk about once every 3 days on average lately. Used to be more like every 2-3 days with a consistent mix of both, but from about 2013-16 it was essentially daily. MAYBE 2 sober days a month. Almost always liquor (just like now) and always straight if it's less than 50%. For 40% liquor, about 15-20oz (around 450-600ml) if I drink fast. For 50% liquor, about 13-15oz (390-450ml) if I drink fast. If I pace my drinks out over a long period of time, it's not uncommon for me to reach 25-30ml (750-900ml) of 40% or 18-22oz (540-660ml) of 50%. As for beer, I can get a decent state of drunkenness if I basically down a dozen 5% as fast as possible. If it's light beer (4%) then I'll probably need at least 15-16, chugged. If I drink slow, I could definitely get up to 20-30 beer. Then for port wine (20%) a single 26oz/750ml bottle can get me decently drunk if I basically drink it fairly quickly. For non-port wine (I think usually 8-12%?), I don't know, but I anticipate needing at least 2 bottles.

I've tried testing myself a few times before. I once drank 14oz of liquor (around 42-46% as I recall) within about 55 minutes. Felt pretty shitty in the morning, had a bad night's sleep, came CLOSE to puking, but did not puke. I can't do the whole Shoenice thing (he's a fat American guy on Youtube who can LITERALLY chug (without stopping) whole bottles of liquor and also does a lot of vids where he speed-eats crazy shit. Honestly, he seems pretty cool even though he probably has an IQ of 70) but I definitely think that in my years of heavy drinking I've honed my tolerance pretty well. I almost never get hang-overs, and I feel blessed in that I'm faaaar from an angry drunk. I'm generally really happy, laughs easily, and if I start to feel I'm being obnoxious or unpleasant I get VERY uncomfortable and get the urge to go and be drunk elsewhere.

If you keep it up for several years, it'll beat you up. For decades, I'm guessing you shouldn't expect to reach 60 years old. I am not a doctor however. I have an uncle who is an alcoholic, apparently drinks wine by the bottle and has done so since his 20s. He's still in his 50s but has had a few heart attacks and now finds it difficult to so much as walk across a room on bad days. I think he feels that he's lucky to still be alive, and wants to try and stay alive so he can watch his grandchildren grow. He's an outstandingly friendly and funny guy, very witty, lots of jokes, and an amazing sense of humour. When he goes, he will be missed by many, many people.

Fucking amazing, and depressing. Leftist-controlled education... an Iranian guy recently moved to Canada. Enrolled in a University. He left 3 months later. "Well, 'the West', you had a good run..." but then he discovered Ben Shapiro, The Rebel media, Lauren Southern, and so on and so forth, and he sees the west still has a chance. Referred to Muslims as 'they' so I assume he's an apostate... seems like a good fellow.

I think I'm a good singer, even when not drunk. In particular I'm a fan of Irish drinking songs. I can actually sing 'Rocky Road to Dublin' not only from memory, but at a faster rate than the typical recording of it. I dare anyone to attempt it even when sober. Also, HUGE fan of the Sharpe theme 'Over the Hills and Far Away'. Not an Irish drinking song, but bloody good stuff. Also, I'm not from the UK.

@Booteefool
not giving a pic but I also have a red face most of the time, it has gotten much worse in the past 2-3 years, and I started drinking pretty much every day about 4 years ago, though I have been binge drinking at least weekly since I was a teenager. I'm 28 now.

I have spent the last year trying to moderate/take breaks from drinking off and on, with pretty inconsistent success. When I am drinking and not trying to moderate I drink between 6-12 drinks a day. When I am trying to moderate it is generally less. A couple of days ago I bit the bullet and decided to take a long break from drinking (long for me. Almost a month). I'm hoping that drinking less will reverse some of the effects of aging and drinking that are making me look like a damn red-faced hag.
Not that you do. Just saying red face we have in common.

I think I'm headed straight to a fucked up life. I'm 21. Almost each day I go to slots. Down four beers in there because they're giving it away for free. If I win I go to a bar and get hammered by five shots of a cheap rum and go with another four or five beers with it. If I lose I just leave the check in there because I also work in there sometimes and just put it off of my paycheck, I'm a good friend with the owner. When I work there like once or twice a week I drink a whole bottlle. Fuck the stocktaking. I drink and gamble because I have no friends. Only friend I ever had I had to break away because I was in love with her and she could never reciprocate my feelings. She was gay and fuck this world. I feel that I don't see the status of a friend like other people do. There has to be a certain type of connection otherwise it's just blunt. I have tons of people, they're comfortable around me but it just doesn't do the thing for me. Never I was able to open to as her. I also feel like I never can find my place in this world and booze just takes the edge of everyhtingl. Started smoking back at high school. Never really thought of myself as a smoker. Now I'm at a pack a day. That's a minimum. It's one to three at regular. I'd go a waste if it wasn't for my parents. I don't see them often but I know they care and I see that they'd be desolated if I'd kill myself.

I don't think I'll outlive my thirties. From what I've seen though this world is a beautiful place. To take it back to the girl I truly loved, I wanted to be here forever just for the sake of it when I still was able to handle my feelings. This world is a glorious place, in a long run this whole life is like a single bet on slots. You can die happy or miserable.

pic related, its me ( the guy ) im 26
been drinking very heavily after job loss, which landed me in hospital with heavy withdrawals several times. prior to that, i've been beering for years daily.

after the last hospital time, i've take a 4 months break from any drinking, which surprisingly that, did me many wonders, I got to school, made many new friends etc. and am generally in terrific mood whilst sober. And no, being sober is not boring to me at all, in fact im more excited in general.

I decided to try drinking on weekends one month ago, and never in the middle of the week. So far it's working, I know my body well enough now to know when it gets dangerous and when I should stop drinking. So far it's working.

my dad got hospitalised and his kidneys aren't functioning apparently but that's all the information the doctors have got atm. He drinks a bottle of wine a day and more on weekends, I'm guessing this is down to alcohol? Anyone have the slightest clue on what the fuck is going on?

New_Cliche
New_Cliche

@Sharpcharm
You can absolutely have your kidney(s) fail due to long term alcoholism, pretty good bet that is the cause. It's also more then possible that he downplayed how much he drank, I know I do whenever anyone asks me about it. In any case I hope he's alright man.

Fried_Sushi

I actually stopped drinking in hope we could stop together but that doesn't seem to be the case. Kidney failure sounds really bad, is it recoverable or what? I've heard the word dialysis floating around

askme

@Fried_Sushi
I don't know how to explain this without sounding like an idiot but basically dialysis gives your kidneys a chance to recover and takes the burden off of them for a while. You know how a severe alcoholic will quit late in life and their liver will still be all fucked up even if they don't touch alcohol for decades? Same principle applies.

cum2soon
cum2soon

@Fried_Sushi
Dialysis is basically just externally filtering the blood, keeping up the electrolyte balance, etc. Since it only targets the symptoms and not the cause you'd need to find a permanent solution. One option would of course to stop driking and see if you can give him one of yours, life with only one kidney isn't all that bad (my father only found out in his 60s, that he had spent most of his life with only one properly functioning kidney)

Yesterday actually went great. At my gramps place I just had one beer and then two beers on the train ride home. By the time we got home I was so tired that I didn't even drink and just layed in bed watching TV until I fell asleep. No hangover today and i'm quite proud of myself for not getting shitfaced like I usually do. I think I'd be ok to drink occasionally if its just social drinking.

meth
Ugh. Why? Even high purity stuff just makes me feel hyper, makes me want to clean each individual atom of my house, then stops me from sleeping for days.
High quality crack on the other hand, ooft. You'll need to make the stuff yourself or I guarantee it'll be diluted to fuck, but if you're lucky enough to get something like an exquisitely pure Peruvian fishscale and you process that into uncut crack? Just... just wow. I never used crack again after that one night. I knew I'd reached the absolute pinnacle of physical pleasure it's possible for a human being to experience. For a few minutes I was while conscious, unable to think. Not a single chatter, worry, thought... my mind was simply blank, dead, and I just looked around the room seeing nothing but exquisite beauty. I felt like the fucking Buddha, just for a few minutes. Then my ability to think returned, and it rapidly dissipated. But wow.
You will never find it on the streets. That single hit cost me a lot of money (maybe $3,200/gram for freebase ( http://www.sigmaaldrich.com/catalog/product/sigma/c8912?lang=en&region=GB )) and took forever to prepare. Years of street crack have left my lungs in terrible condition. Would not recommend unless you're a chemist, or have been a dedicated psychonaut for many years.
Erm, in fact even then I wouldn't "recommend" it. All drugs are ultimately shit for those among us who have an addictive personality.
Sorry, kind of went off on one there, but drugs and booze have been my life for 23 years, and I've never understood why anyone enjoys using even the highest purity meth.

You could have picked up any other recipe without alcohol... Do you really fear you're gonna drink, or did you already relapsed when ordering the bottle?
Because it would be an easy "back to the wagon before this relapse goes too bad" if you cancel the order now (or plan another meal and trash the bottle as soon as you receive it.)

Thank you kind sir. Give it a few weeks though and I'm uncomfortably confident that I'll be back to thrashing around in my sleep, pouring with sweat, not eating for days, checking my phone every ten seconds for messages from 'her', waking halfway through the night just to down enough vodka to stop WD, and tearing my skin off to stop the crawling, excruciating pain of addiction.
What's more, I'm now in so much debt that my house is for sale. Gotta move yet again.
If I relapse before I move, I think I'll just leave every possession in my house except my phone and the clothes I'm wearing, crawl into a cab, limp into the new house and just lay on the floor in an empty house, drinking vodka and listening to Alan Watts on YouTube.
I'm such a cheerful character sometimes. Wonder why she left.

I miss alcohol too. It was rather close to killing me, I still suffer from pancreatitis, I'm over a year dry, smoke pot to maintain "sobriety", but I still miss it.
There is no shame in that. You just have to live with it, day after day.
It gets easier with time, now I'm not thinking about drinking all day long, only every few days.
I can't teach my subconscious that it's suicidal, and it's supposed to have self-preservation instinct, not self-destruction. (Maybe hypnosis or EMDR can, it's worth looking into.)

Wait longer before "testing" yourself. (Plus, I mean, there were talks about drinking vodka from a piss jug or a dirty sink syphon recently in /alc/, you're not fooling anyone but yourself with >rice wine is fucking disgusting.)

Thinking about it, I relapsed on gin and tonic, even though I hate it. I guess part of my subconscious knows that it's bad and tried to pass a message to the conscious.

I'm not an alcoholic. I just drink to get drunk, but lately it's getting harder and harder to get it down.

The last thing I got drunk on was cheap-as-dirt rum (10 bucks a liter) and it was terrible, but I was at least able to get a good throatful down at once. Now I've got pic related and can barely stand to take a sip. I don't usually chug from a plastic bottle, so that's probably it. Somebody give me advice on how to get it all down like a boss.

And why does it have to be plastic? Even my dirt rum came in a glass bottle.

I once got a girl pregnant while she was on the pill and I pulled out before I came. 'Precum' was apparently all it took.
She had an abortion. We were young.
In the gagging heat of the moment we fucked again several years later, and the same thing happened.
I have a daughter now, and her 6ft8 dad looks after her. I've literally fought the bastard, put him on the floor with a carefully aimed elbow one time, but he's a fucking millionaire. Court cases are hopelessly expensive. I'm not allowed near her.
So I drink.

Oh and uh, yeah, your dick is probably perfectly capable of making healthy babies. She wants to be an astrophysicist.

Ive worked in bars for 7 years. From nightclubs to 5 star hotel bars and I'm currently doing a stint in a gin bar trying to go cocktail bar.

Bartending is fucking piss. Pints are easy, spirits and mixers the normies all ever want are easy. The only complicated thing is getting into the beautifully autistic world of cocktails

Just rock up to a bar. Ask if they have openings. If not. Move on to the next bar.

There was this one bartender guy that I asked about the Alien Brain Hemorrhage. Actually made one for me, it was amazing to see but he wasn't satisfied with it. Ended up making three more just for practice and then the three of us (He, I, and the chick I was with) enjoyed one each. After that the chick I was with bought me a shot that looked like the Irish flag which was quite cool. I've got huge respect for that dude.

I'm a cook in a very busy in Seattle. You can get a bar back job. Just get one, let them know you want to move up, and just do it.

Make cocktails at home for your friends, you'll learn more doing that than most places. It's not hard to be a bartender, you can do it. it is however hard to make a great cocktail. Most people (in the US at lest) are pigs who will eat and drink actual slop. They are awful morons who would eat and drink real shit if you charged the right price. They want cheese, beer, and once in a while no carbs. That's it. Starting.. most people won't even order a "real" cocktail, they just want whiskey gingers and Manhattans. Just go do it.

Yeah maybe you're right. There do seem to be a couple of people who dislike al/ck/ for whatever (likely petty) reason. Perhaps it was just someone trying to derail or cause arguments in what I think is a really nice, probably rather fragile, supportive community. Quite an accomplishment when you consider that we're all unhappy as fuck irl, ill and generally desperate. For a bunch like that, on fucking Veeky Forums of all places, to form a community like this is, I think, very admirable.
I'm gonna try to refrain from political/sexual discussion. It just stirs up emotions in the threads which cause conflict. Not looking to turn this into some sterile knitting circle in which bad language is banned and we all have to pretend to be nice. Fuck that cuntery. I want al/ck/ to be real and raw, but I for one hope that we might gravitate away from some of the more petty disputes, and be wary of 'trolls'.

Anyway. Brb, wanking over (lovely, thin (aren't chunky monkey wobbleslob hamplanet chicks revolting?? Kill them all)) chick Zoe Kimball and going on an anti-capitalism march, then kerb-stomping some queers and burning crosses on lawns. Cheers.

I used to hide a bucket connected to transparent fishing line in our spare bedroom at the back of my house. When I went out, I'd tie the line to a chair in the room, chuck the bucket out of the window, behind a hedge below. On my return I'd place vodka in the bucket, walk into the house with my innocent purchases (and sometimes be searched for booze, shit you not) then when the coast was clear, reel in the bucket from upstairs, hide the bottle in a box of cereal that only I liked, then get smashed when she'd gone out or fallen asleep.

@whereismyname
That's a lot.
To have got to that level, I imagine you already have some idea of the horror which awaits.
I've been there, bro. Aside from the 'go to hosp asap ffs' line that you've no doubt heard 100 times already, all I can say is that your psychological state while in withdrawal, as far as I'm concerned anyway, has a huge impact on the extent to which you'll experience the innumerable symptoms-from-hell you're about to find hitting you like a steam train. If you can stay calm and keep reassuring yourself that the way you feel is nothing out of the ordinary and that it'll pass, I think you'll find the task of stopping to be a lot easier. Just try to remember that the fear, the nightmares, the hallucinations, the petrifying feeling of impending doom, all of it; it's all normal, we all get it, it's unavoidable and, assuming you survive, it will pass. If you can do 4 days sober, there's a good chance you'll begin to gradually feel better. The nightmares for me typically get worse at that point and I become more than a little delirious for a few days, but that too passes and the majority of the other symptoms will have significantly dissipated.
Smirnoff is a hardcore drink, dude. Spirits are absolute fucking serial killers.
If for whatever reason you can't go to hosp, acquire benzos or taper, just try to stay calm. I don't know what else to tell you, other than 'iktfb'. Good luck.

Off to a good start, good on you. Having alcohol around and not tanking it on a whim was a big step for me when I fell off the wagon. First week sober I caught myself constantly glancing at the bottle of cooking wine in the kitchen, thankfully when I gave in there was only half left and it was too late to go and buy more. Sobriety is a lot better than where I was, but it is fucking boring

@TurtleCat
I know. Oh lord do I know. The fucked part is I've only been 21 for about a month now. I have an interesting situation financially (no, not mommy and daddy) and a few good friends who'd been helping me stock up until now. Since I've turned, the privilege has been rough on me. My gf gets a bad hangover every once in a while, but absolutely can't comprehend what you've described. I have done it several times, the hot/cold/hot/cold, horrifying nightmares, and insomnia. After abusing my body for so long (it's been years, but only got to 1.75l/day as of late), I can deal with the physical symptoms. I have access to benzos, so thankfully I haven't seized yet. Largely, it's the psychological symptoms that really fuck me around. The paranoia, feelings of impending doom, total worthlessness, etc. I can't deal with them, and as soon as I feel the warmth of the liquor ant-farming around in my belly I get that endorphin rush and am suddenly much more tolarable to everyone around me, and the same regarding me to them.

So I used to work in a hospital (internal medicine ward), we always had quite a few alkies (ironic, that I'm one myself now) and mostly we'd give them Distra, but we also had beer/wine on hand and would ration it out to certain patients, I think the most we gave a day to one regular was like 2L wine. All of this was legal, regulated and documented.
Do you know if this happens in other countries, would it even be considerd?

I know in the UK they give you whisky to drink if someone comes in having drunk methanol, apparently ethanol gets processed first by your body so if you drink the correct amount the methanol passes through and doesn't fuck your shit up.

FYI: So you have an enzyme that processes alcohol (alcohol dehydrogenase, ADH), now it doesn't really differentiate between methanol or ethanol (they are chemically similar and are both called alcohols). It turns the alcohol into a higher oxidized state. Now with Ethanol it isn't a problem, but the product of the reaction between ADH and Methanol produces a fairly poisonous product (Formic Acid). Giving Ethanol as a "medication" keeps the ADH enzymes preoccupied with converting Ethanol and the Methanol gets bullied away, and gets pissed out. I hope my autistic ramblings have at least interested someone (the more you know)

Totally understand, living a kind of NEET life myself right know (student, with gov. support, but don't really go to uni anymore). I somehow lost self control after a certain incident 2 years a go and can't seem to find the energy/motivation to get back up and do something decent. I hope we both get back on our feet.

Yeah, dude. I've had a lackadaisical and happy go lucky life for the last few years with really good friends who finally moved away (and I did too). I'm in a new town and have no interest in talking to anyone, and all my bills are paid (of my own volition), so I don't have any real motivation to get out of this rut. I just need to want to do it for myself, and maybe the turning point is near. Let's hope so.

Thanks dude. Always interested to hear easy to understand, biological explanations/approximations as to how we might avoid not being alive any more. As long as al/ck/ doesn't fill up with med students and we all end up too confused to bother reading, s'all good imo.

Interesting, pertinent fact: Medical doctors are more likely to be alchies than those in almost all other professions.

I genuinely really like it, very complex but doesn't burn much. Must be because of the age - and it is "cheap" (for a 16 year old whisky) in Costco. Not something to drink in a night in true al/ck/ fashion but nice to have as a treat every now and again. Make sure you like smoky / peaty Islay Malts first before commuting to a bottle.

Never seen Parks and Rec but it does seem to be gaining a lot of attention recently

Couldn't read the specific article, but know about the problem (they say most of the coke in my city is sold in front of the main hospital). Most of the staff I worked with had a tendency to alcohol, although because they saw so many alckies, they tried to go for weed, and they smoked a fuck-ton, but were some the best people I've ever met on this planet.
Also I'm not a med-student, I studied biochemistry for 2 years, and have been studying normal chemistry for 2 years now, hospital work was unrelated.

After a while nothing makes sense anymore as far as cost/abv, and you just want it to take effect as soon as possible. The warmth feels so damn nice.
It helps miles to chase, first by taking a small sip of juice/soda/water, and then massive gulp of vodka followed immediately by a few drinks of the aforementioned chaser. Try it (but not with gin, dude).

Reminder, just for my peace of mind, that the quantities of alcohol people in these threads consume, would kill the average person in hours, and that with spirits, it is very easy to overdo it without realising you've done so.
Furthermore, take note that almost without exception, everyone here is desperate to stop.
This is not a glamorous lifestyle, you will ruin not just your life but the lives of those you love.
Drink if you must, but treat the danger these threads present with the respect they deserve, and drink slllooowwlllyyy, allow your body to react to your last drink before taking another. Try drinking a whole bottle of Smirnoff without years of tolerance? You'll likely die. It doesn't take much.

Inflammation for long periods of time often leads to cancer, so yeah it kinda sucks. It's one of like 50 medical conditions I've been diagnosed with as a result of my boozing.
It's microscopic not macroscopic; i.e invisible to me, but every time I drunkenly bareback a gril I freak out and have myself tested for STD's, and without fail, every doc for like a decade and a half has expressed concern because they've found blood in my piss. I'm negative for all STDs and shit like non-specific urethritis; no pathogenic micro-organism is causing this shiz, and the most recent diagnosis I received (from a G.U.M consultant) was: stop drinking, faggot.
So, yeah. Booze makes me piss blood. It smells like the blood you'd find in a fresh animal kidney from your butcher.

They give valium here (France), and taper that.
It pretty much works the same to taper alcohol, or switch to benzo and taper them, main difference it that it would cause public outcry if they gave alcohol to alcoholics because it sound counter-intuitive to normies.
I went to a UK hospital for stomach bug (possible undiagnosed pancreatitis), they looked at me with big eyes when I asked about valium, and told me they just let alkies go have a beer at the nearby pub. I guess they don't do detox in that place.

I'm the guy from the other thread who was diagnosed with pancreatitis on Saturday. It's been 48 hours since I went to the E.R., the pain has mostly stopped now after 3 days of agony. Also just finally shit out the 2 McChickens I ate after being discharged, no blood or anything worrisome in the toilet. Pain is at a level 1/10 consistently, no intermittent 9/10 stabs in the sides.

Tomorrow, I will reach the goal of going 48 hours without a drop of alcohol, then have one small drink as part of the tapering process. I'm absolutely done with alcohol after this experience.

Good luck to anyone quiting. It's always hard, as we all know.

I live with a friend of mine and his gf. The gf and I got in an argument 2 weeks ago. She's knows I'm working to stay sober so she bought a bottle of the vodka I used to drink and has left it unopened in the freezer for about 12 days now. I spent my life savings keeping all 3 of us afloat, while we were all out of work. Now they're both working and she's trying to kick me out since I don't have any money left. I wasted almost $5k on the 2 of them.

We'll all make it together, we have to.

Horrible stuff. It's in control, you are not.
Try light/med doses of LSD if you're sure it's pure, but shrooms for an al/ck/? Not sure that's a great idea. DMT would be better. But frankly still almost useless imo.
In my experience, pure, unadulterated lysergic acid is the only drug which has helped me to observe my addictions from an objective perspective and as such, obtain some kind of control over them.
Public ignorance regarding these issues and how relentlessly addicts are tortured as a result, will go down in history.
The peasant public simply does not care as long as it has it's TV and it's faith in the oh-so-trustworthy politicians and corporate elites.

No benzo, just morphine. Last weekend, Aug. 4th-6th, I was drinking 8 Icehouse Edges per day, usually on an empty stomach. After the vomiting and other usual horrible effects, I spent the week tapering again. By Saturday morning, I started having the terrible pains that led to going to the E.R.

Because I had been drinking much lower amounts for the previous 6 months, tapering has gone faster without any serious withdrawals. I've done all this before just to not get caught by a drug counselor, so it's easier to gauge amounts and times needed to cut down quickly without serious effects. This time, I'm doing it for real, I don't ever want to feel like that again, it was constant torture and they didn't send me home with any painkillers to complete the recovery.

I don't see how coffee could help. Heroin, sure, that helps with alcohol addiction, is easier and less dangerous to stop, and don't destroy the body as badly. I don't have to tell you that heroin addiction isn't exactly great either.

It's an addiction, and a bad one. There are no easy solution.

back in high school me and some buddies decided to invite our one friend who didn't drink alcohol to come hang and drink with us. He overdid it and i'm still baffled how this kid did not die right in front of us.

He managed to down an entire fifth of jack (like he chugged the entire bottle with us watching) and then proceeded to drink half a bottle of crown. He ended up puking/shitting/pissing himself the entire night while screaming in agony saying that everything hurts. We were terrified and so close to calling the cops or an ambulance but we were underage and had a lot of drugs with us too at the time (friend only drank the booze, didn't do anything else) After that night none of us really spoke to him ever again and i'm convinced he did die and i've just known a ghost ever since.
