the bottles of wyld wood organic SPARKLING were GOAT ony slightly surpassed byorchard pig truffler.

anyhoo. Every night I buy a 2 litre bottle of asda dry cider (the best supermarket own brand cider) and a bottle of westons vintage (8.9%). I drink the first pint out of the asda bottle then mix the vintage in so that the rest tastes slightly better and is stronger than usual. costs like £4 and gets me good and buzzed.

for me its the best cheap dinking solution in terms of strength, price and taste.

Any tips with minor tremors? I'm not trying to go clean but I think I went on too big of a bender last night and for the last two hours I've been feeling really weak and shaking a little. I suspect if I drink some more it'll go away but it's too early for that right now.

I'm a functional alcoholic. I normally wouldn't admit that, and in a sense my condition is sustainable at this point. Both of my parents have some issues with alcohol, my mom moreso than my dad. They make it work though and have made it thus far.

Although my mom fucked up and cheated on my dad when I was attending college, they got divorced and now my mom lives in her hometown, working retail.

I wasn't able to finish my first semester at college because I am retarded (autism) and now after much trial and tribulation I am a car salesman.

I teeter between indifferent apathy and extreme depression, I have arbitrary goals that I don't care about or think I can acheive just to convince the normies to leave me alone.

I really wish I were dead but I am too much of a pussy to kill myself. I know I don't want to die from alcohol related health issues as they are too long and painful, so I can't just drink drink drink.

I was thinking about getting a motorcycle, how much do you guys think that would increase my daily probability of death? Versus the probability I end up a vegetable? That's probably the only thing that could be worse than this.

@Soft_member
What do you think will get me somewhere? And how do I define "somewhere?" Alcohol isn't holding me back from anything (although I may be delusional) as far as I know. I consider myself an alcoholic because try as I might I cannot stop drinking. I drink like 20 5% beers a week, carefully drunk depending on circumstances. Usually 3 nights getting a buzz and finishing off the other 2 beers whenever. Something in that area. I stopped drinking liquor because I always (piss myself/crash my car/say something unredeemablely offensive) but those problems only affect me in a compartmentalized sense.

The main problem I have is that I am wholly unable to support myself. I can't have romantic relationships, I have no self esteem, and, I have a shit job. My self-esteem is so bad that I am even thankful I have this garbage-can job.

I will admit I am a whiny bastard but I don't know what to tell you. I would rather isolate myself than exude fake positivity. Every time I try and relate to somebody or a group of people it feels like I am shot down over open water.

Maybe this thread isn't the best place to ramble about my self-loathing but where else? Sorry to bother you man, thanks for responding.

@DeathDog
it seems like your self esteem is tied to your alcohol use as well. Can't tell which one caused the other but they do make one another worse.

Honestly, it sounds like you are not taking responsibility for your own perceptions of yourself. It can be comforting to wallow in self pity like you are doing (obv. drunks love to do this, a weepy melancholic drunk is a common sight!), and it will give you a million more opportunities to keep wallowing in self pity and never change.

Never change, Veeky Forums.

hangover? side effects?

DeathDog
DeathDog

@Flameblow

When you put it through a reflux column it's actually cleaner than commercial alcohol. Commercial vodka goes through a 'continuous still' and doesn't prune off the heads and tails like you can when you generate azeotropic ethanol. My booze tastes like vanilla and fire if you drink it at 93%

So, no side effects at all. Just dangerous to drink when it isn't watered down. You can drink too much very quickly.

Hangovers are light. The methanol doesn't exist(like it does in wine) ethyl acetate is removed at 77 degrees C. Ethanol is collected at 78.5.

@Need_TLC
How did you come to that conclusion?

My self-esteem is as low as it is because I have experienced too much rejection for me to cope with. This happened before my drug/alcohol use escalated to this level. No need to get into the specifics but I cannot trust people, I have no (marketable) skills to build a career, women don't find me attractive (I am not obese or dirty).

I have a few hobbies but I choose not to pursue them seriously because I tend to dissapoint myself. For example I like cooking and I actually consider myself a decent cook. I haven't really cooked anything in a couple weeks because last time I tried to make a nice dinner (shrimp kebabs) I fucked up and they came out raw. I may blame the grill but a good cook should be able to compensate for uneven heat, right? Or if I were smart I would have used the stove and a pan because I am familiar with its heating profile.

Regardless, the point is I am never dissapointed in the $10 I spend on a six-pack. It consistently gives me the same feeling.

Sometimes when I try to do other things I waste money fucking up. One of the reasons I dropped out is because I improperly accounted for my living expenses when drawing a student loan. I incorrectly assumed my parents (per our conversation) would help me out a bit during my first semester as I wanted to acclimate myself to a new enviroment and be used to the level of coursework before I sought employment.

Now I work 65 hours a week to make enough so that I can afford my libations without being bothered.

If I quit drugs and alcohol I would go back to being an autistic videogame/masturbation addict or read books all day.

My job is pretty good in the sense that I am well-respected and well-liked. I get what you are saying. You are right. I make a lot more money than I did working as an overnight gas-station attendent. I fixed my credit, bought a cheap reliable car and saved an emergency fund. I have nice clothes and good hygiene (I didn't 5 years ago).

Despite all of that I am entirely unfulfilled and expect to be alone forever and don't really see the point except to afford my drugs/alcohol. If I didn't allow myself inebriation the entire system I designed that allows me to expend the effort reqiured to maintain all this bullshit would fall apart.

Everything in moderation, including moderation.

@Dreamworx

Ummmmmm.

I'll try.

You'll need massive Brute food safe garbage containers. I make 2 x this..

115L of water
30Kg Sugar
1326ml tomato paste (8.5cans)
5tsp Citric Acid
380g Yeast
1 tsp Epsom salt
2 campden tablets in water

I think they were 44 Gallon vats? Yes. Then you need a 3 inch 5ft long piece of drain waste vent copper pipe. Then you need to build a condenser for that column still. The condenser I use is a Jackson Crossflow condenser I made by hand. A 36qt boiler with a 2.6kW heater I run from my stove.

How much did it cost you to build?

The crossflow condenser is the most meticulous work. It looks like this.. stuffed with copper mesh they use to deter rodents. That is soldered into a larger tube that you pump coolant through.

What (if any) safety measures does this have?

Poker_Star
Poker_Star

@w8t4u

I tread my still like it's a big coffee maker. I've probably run 40 distillations through it to date. It's not a pressurized system so vapour doesn't try to escape from your boiler. It rises up your column slowly to be "knocked down" by your condenser. You put PTFE tape on your giant pot, or even a keg, most people use a keg for better containment. The slow moving vapour moves up the column, gets condensed on the condenser and collects in the down spout that has a liebig cooler on it. It's all done at 1 atmosphere of pressure.

I have a single chemical fire extinguisher in the house, but I will never need to use it. I don't use open flame, I don't run it unattended. My stripping runs take 2.6 hours and I use wireless digital thermometers and timers to make sure I'm always on top of an essentially non dangerous process. It's literally like brewing coffee.

Quebec had its own crown corp for alcohol.

You moved to Quebec? How's it living there as an Anglophone?
My particular lifestory is fucked up. I grew up in an anglophone part of Quebec and then moved to Montreal, the most anglo major city.
It's an absolutely great city, even for anglos like me. The major happening parts of the city are almost entirely anglo. Like the artist/musician parts are all anglo.
If you like art of any kind, music, painting, poetry, this is the city to be in now.

But for me personally, my identity is fucked up. My dad is Quebecois born and raised, and my mum is Atlantic anglo. I've lived in Quebec nearly all my life and I have an extreme anglo accent. Shit sucks man.
It doesn't help that my name is very very francophone

25 days sober

Just did an all nighter. So Over 72 hours I've slept maybe 8 hours. No desire to sleep. No important tasks planned after a few hours of work. Waiting for the crash.

When I think of alcohol, I am more frequently associating it with nasty hangerovers, although I never actually really got one. It would be cool if that trend continues, for I don't want to drink for a few years.

Thanks for reading my blog

Welp, thanks for giving a shit, user my man. A lot of people had thought I'd died, apparently. But nah, I just needed, NEEDED to escape, so I went cold turkey. Tapering has never worked for me. CT From years of 60-90 units a day. It was bad, ended up in ICU in a coma.
Still, I'm alive for now. Don't know that I'll last much longer though; I'm not at all convinced that I won't relapse, and if I start again, I cannot fathom the hell I'll face.

Can't stand retards like you who always have the worse view on balance. I myself only drink on my days off now after drinking 1-2 fifths and day, sometimes don't even drink. It's perfectly possible to moderate it. I understand for some it is not a possibility, but for many it is.

drinking with hobos
Used to do this all the time. It's amazing how intelligent and interesting some of them are. (Try watching 'Brian's story' on YouTube. Cambridge educated journalist turned homeless alchie)
Very dangerous people to be around, but you'll have access to every drug, weapon, girl, anything illegal you care to mention, and they won't care how much of a drunken idiot you are.

Got some McDonalds with a local hobo a couple weeks ago. He was pretty cool and recited poetry in "exchange" for his burgers. Also an alcoholic; his backpack was philosophy printouts from the library, water, and vodka bottles.

Pretty heartbreaking story 2bh. He was from Scotland and somehow made his way down to near London (where I am) to see his son who had cancer or something. We were near a hospital too. Just asking him about what he does to get by, where he sleeps and shit like that. I found it interesting.

I've braised pork shoulder with onions, carrots and apples in some hard cider someone left at my house after a party before. It came out really well.

Anyone read the biography 'The Diceman' by Luke Rhinehart? He rarely made decisions for himself. He'd present a set of options, each linked to a number from 1-6. He'd then roll the dice and whichever number was revealed, absolutely dictated the path his life would take.

Every decision I make turns to shit. I'm hereby using post numbers to determine the path my life takes from now on.

If this post ends in an even number, I'm going to start drinking again. Odd, I get back into heroin. Doubles, I sober up and try not to kill myself.

My recent bender was really shameful. It seems I'm starting to give less of a fuck about my drinking just publicly being a wreck these days

The worst feel is when you talk to a girl in a bar and it goes really well then she bumps into you in the morning and all she says to you is 'you haven't slept have you?' And you can see the disgust on her face before she leaves you. Just sums it up.

Review: "Fisheye" $4 wine is pretty tasty. Basically "dry" grape juice. A shitty wine but a smooth drink that's for sure.

Oh nice. My Gutedel tasted like water with a hint of diluted wine in it (still has 12%, though). Honestly my beer tastes more like alc.

Anyway while on the subject of public benders, I rarely feel much shame when just going through town or whatever, when it's in front of friends or family it's much worse. Although I think my 'tism might play a role in there, I always beat my self up for social situations (even when sober) regarding family/friends so idk.

@Deadlyinx
You did it wrong. This isn't my first batch, I just forget to set up a new one till I'd drunk through most of my old one.

You do it right, and it'll turn from sugar water into a very mellow yeasty alcoholy water. Add about a tablespoon of concentrated juice to a pint and it tastes like juice. I like to add a splash of grapefruit juice as well. I don't care if it isn't manly, it tastes better this way.

TurtleCat

@Flameblow
Actually, closer to half a tablespoon, now I think about it. I find it's better to make sugar wine and add a bit of juice than try to ferment juice straight, anyway.

Shot in the dark but how would you legit alkies recommend someone to handle/reach out to one of you.

Family member became an alcoholic and ive already lost a lot of money and sanity, how would one best approach you?
Is it "cant help unless they want to be helped/wait for you to hit rock bottom and then swoop you up"?

by the time i could try again i could just go to the liquor store and buy some. was an issue of being too autismo to get people to buy me alc than not being able to afford it
Though these days it's been spending more money on alc than food...

I can't follow what you're saying at all. Did you leave it under the sink for 6 months or something? What the fuck? It only needs 2-4 weeks.

Your chances of being able to help are slim to none.
Sorry.
Making them feel as good as possible is the best advice I can fathom. Giving them new hope, something new to enjoy, something fresh to which they can dedicate themselves.
Find him/her a 10/10 to screw 24/7 and a lottery jackpot maybe.
Yeah.
You're powerless.
Just remember that making them feel bad will make them drink more.

I'm sorry that you're dealt the shit hand which is that of having to deal with one of us al/ck/s. Don't feel guilty about being powerless. Alcoholism is not a trivial affair.
