Redditor alcohol aficionados belong on Reddit Edition
How does one detect a redditor alcohol aficionado via text only?
Oh, you'll know.
Ask him what his favorite IPA is?
I drink alcohol to get drunk
Coke doesn't do anything and it's fucking horrible for you, doesn't even taste good either
Back to the bottle for me. I just came to terms with the fact that I am not who my crush wants. She wants her best friend, and I can see that in how she talks about him. She tried to spare me from the jealousy and heartbreak, but in the end it was kinder of her to let me know. Still, the month or so that we were together was the happiest month of my life. My depression disappeared entirely, I legitimately looked forward to waking up, and I even stopped drinking. Now I am right back where I started, with my lips alternating between the throat of a vodka bottle and the barrel of a loaded gun.
they seized my fucking rifle
A little bit of carbs is needed to process the alcohol or you end up with asian flush symptoms.
end up with asian flush symptoms
what's wrong with that exactly?
How old are you, 20? Dont ever let a woman do that to you. Falling in love with them is a young man's mistake.
red face, hot flashes, hard to breathe, sweaty
Why the fuck would you walk around drunk with a BB gun in the first place? Especially in yurop with all Muslim hijinks.
that's how you react if you don't drink coke with alcohol?
maybe it's cause you're fat from all that coke
Drink Coke Zero or something retard. If you're going to be drinking alcohol to get drunk it's not going to impede that and also means you can buy cheaper stuff and down more of it over the same period. If you're downing spirits 24/7 without some sugar to break up the alcohol you'll not only fuck yourself even harder, you'll find it tough to get them down as early as the second day.
i SIP but i DONT GRIP because I HAVE NO GRIP ON LIFE ANYMORE
not what i said, at all. i didnt say you had to drink coke with alcohol, merely pointing out that carbs arent something to avoid while imbibing alcohol. most of the sugar in the coke goes to breaking down the ethanol.
Help me drink booze 24/7
Eww no Coke, that's bad for you
What the fuck?
Coke Zero has no calories. It's obviously not a health food due to whatever the fuck else goes into it but it's not going to make you fat as a mixer.
respond to post
links me back to same post
23, yeah. I knew falling in love was going to hurt me in the long run, but I underestimated the effect it had on me while things were good. I always thought I'd be stuck with my depression, but for it to dissipate so quickly was intoxicating and it amplified the inevitable heartbreak when I lost the feeling.
cause you obviously need to read it again
sure, i can understand what youre saying. learn your lesson and move on though.
Get back at her and fuck one of her friends. It always helps me get over women to know that they hate me.
You need to get your fucking logic checked. You want to drink booze 24/7, which is remarkably unhealthy, yet you're worried about Coke. You sound like a fucking retard.
I know, and I will. It isn't like I actively seek out relationships anywaye. Was just a rare thing.
Her friends are an odd mix between /r9k/ and /d/. That's just dangerous.
you do something unhealthy so you're not allowed to be concerned about your health
I drink booze all day everyday because I have an addiction to alcohol and I enjoy the effects of it.
I don't wake up and eat a 20 piece bucket of KFC every morning, but apparently I should?
Can someone explain to me exactly how this thread is Veeky Forums related? All the posts are from people wallowing in self hatred and regret, with almost no posts about actual alcohol and drinks, and how they taste.
it's barely Veeky Forums related
seems the mods just tolerate it/don't care
Nah, can't be bothered. Plenty of other threads for you though.
Nobody owes you an explanation, or cares what you want.
he drinks alcohol for the taste
Go back to Plebbit you fucking queer.
But I never even stated what I want. What I want is for things to be on-topic and for the shitposters to go back to their containment boards.
Maybe one day you'll finally become a janitor and someone will actually give a fuck what you want for once in your miserable life.
Seems to me like the only miserable lives in this thread are the ones posting about their miserable lives.
I like you
And nobody cares what it is.
90% of kitchen staff are alcoholic drug addicts, that’s why this started on Veeky Forums, now sod off with the passive aggressive crap. Hide the threads.
zero calories soda as a mixer is the same as a bucket of chicken
That hyperbole. You're either a woman or a think. No way you're a man.
i want my rifle back
The fucking OP specified you weren't allowed in here.
Al/ck/ has been a long standing staple of this board due to cooks and board culture
He wants the longstanding posters to leave to their "containment boards"
Fuck off back to where you came from, queer
get a grip and use a consistent title so I can block you fucking idiots shitting up this board
I can't fucking sleep.
I'm trying to stay sober about 12 more hours so i can drive to see my mom for the first time in months, Despite living 17 miles apart.
Been trying since 11pm, Now 5am and I've yet to get 1 wink of sleep.
How do sober people sleep? I haven't slept a night sober in 7 years
You must be new here. This thread has been around on this board since it was created. Fuck off back to Plebbit.
Did Obummer take it? Go buy another one
The last 4 out of 5 threads have used this title
This tourist is demanding consistency
Dumb faggot. block yourself
Hm, yeah, maybe people were posting about drinks instead of their problems.
You need to get tired or tiredish. Exercise is key. Benadryl helps you fall asleep. On days where im still reeling from a bender I like to walk a few miles or bike a few miles. Anything to help get you tired.
he thinks alcoholics are happy people
Hue Hue Hue
They're right though. This is better suited to /r9k/ than Veeky Forums.
It's part of the board culture. Cut it off and it spills everywhere.
What's with all the resistance in this thread? Is it cause it insults all the redditors that have come to Veeky Forums and they feel offended?
They enter the thread expecting discussion about the hip new liquors and IPAs and instead get bitter drunks and alcoholics trying to get sober. So they complain and try to get what THEY wanted.
anyone go to large protests or community gatherings with fight juice? i like being around people and outside
You're that same faggot that was bitching about drinking coke.
Stop saying "Hmmm", redditor. It doesn't make you seem clever, it just makes you look like a douche.
tfw you'll never be a 19 year old NEET playing GTA SA until the early hours of the morning ever again
I spent so many hours on that and Unreal Tournament 2K14.
he drinks fight juice instead of riot punch
not same poster, but thanks for the laugh at how angry such a simple post got you
Yeah, take the high road on your way out.
But then you have to have a party to invite the girl? What if you have no friends and no party, that'll be weird to invite her alone and have dozen of bottles each on the table...
Alcoholic thread, not alcohol thread.
Many in the industry are alcoholics. Also board tradition.
If you're unhappy about it, make a filter to hide the threads. Click "settings" on top right of page.
You're better at expressing my thoughts about this than me.

All the reddit butthurt in this thread
plus you can add a bit of lime or strong cordial even
Thinking of getting a flask but it would be a step toward admitting I have a problem. I'd go for a water bottle and vodka, but I prefer the novelty of a flask. It isn't illegal to be drunk in public here, so it isn't like it matters in that regard.
actually fighting on fight juice
me but only for the first 11 seconds
Vermont. Public intoxication was decriminalized in 1978. Burlington has its own policies and often abuses the whole "for your protection" and "disturbance" thing, but it's Burlington. No one respects Burlington.
I'm always drunk in public and it's illegal here, I'm not blatant with the drinking though
Usually I'll use a waterbottle, something to conceal the liquid or drink in a public bathroom
Illegal here too. Coppers don’t give a shit. Alchies are absolutely everywhere in the uk
I want my brain to stop developing so that I can drink more
what riot is this from?
Just a normal weekend in any town in the uk.
Not exaggerating either, ask any Brit.
I bringe drank from 17-21 and I'm fine
Love my new pukepisspot apparatus. I’ve further upgraded. The 2x3L jugs were filling too quickly, so I’ve now acquired a 33L bucket into which I can empty those. Toying with the idea of installing a water pump so it’s automatically emptied out of a window, or using an old chest freezer to store 33L lumps of assorted alchie effluvia for disposal when convenient. Kinda tempted to drag them outside at night, and build a piss igloo from the frozen bricks... because why not. The local homeless bunch will love it
used to drink twice a week for 6 years
started doing intermittent fasting
now only drinking once a month, sometimes even skipping a month
Feels good, man.
I am drinking today and I don't even feel bad about it.
too drunk and lazy to get up to go to the toilet
installs dedicated indoor plumbing instead
tfw have been binge drinking since the election
Fuck Drumpf man
Same man, what the fuck happened? It was #Her time! I can't stand this anymore!
mfw people now laugh at me when I'm wearing my HillMissile-shirt in public
Get over her or at least don't be her friend/shoulder to cry on. Don't ever text her, if she texts you either ignore her or give very short vague responses. Be emotionally detached like this works on girls that try to friend zone you, then you finally hit it one more time and ignore them for real. Fuck roasties bro and GL.with your booze problem.
Oh wow, this heartburn is pretty damn sincere. I just curled over in pain because I swallowed some raisins. Legit felt like red hot blades flowing into me. Awesome! Fuck trying to eat like, ever again.
changes pain-induced; sweat-drenched clothes
I get really bad acid reflux and its brutal, I can actually hear the acid bubbling in my esophagus
after binging on vodka for 4-5 days and saying fuck drinking is really hard for like the first week because my sleep gets totally fucked, on top of withdrawals and lack of sleep. learned exercise is key to getting back on track.
i get super anxious and little things spook me.
wow, twice a week?
youre hardcore bro
Just found this thread. I'm 30, shitty dead-end part-time job, I drink 1 to 2 packs of strong beer a day on average. Most of my days became unproductive and shitty. I try to fight the craving especially when I'm at work, but I'm not ashamed anymore to order alcohol on every lunch. The rest of the time I live at home, lost in my procrastination. I've been stucked in this mess for almost 6 months now.
drink a lot of milk or eat yogurt. It neutralizes the acid and helps with the heartburn.
just because you're alcoholics doesn't mean you have to be faggots as well
this is a good one, also helps rebuild gut flora
Same bro except im 26 and work full time. This job is a dead end basically but can't afford not to work. Been drinking about a 750ml a day for the past 6 months. You're not alone but the answers you're looking for are probably not in this thread.
Can confirm, I live in Glasgow and sauchiehall street looks pretty much like that if not worst every weekend after 10
worked a dead end job straight out of school
realised it was going nowhere, so applied to uni when I was 21
started uni at 22
way older than everyone else, nothing in common
drink alone at night because there is fuck all else to do
zero social life
course is pretty easy, get ok grades
progress from 6 beers a day to a 70cl bottle of vodka / gin / whisky / whatever a day
applied for a grad job at a small firm and got it
starts september next year, I graduate in June
tell myself I will quit the alcoholism between June and September
will get myself in shape and really apply myself at work
It isn't going to happen is it
drink a lot
nothing in common
You couldn't find a bunch of other boozers at college?
make that 2 years
I went along to a few parties but it was all high school tier drinking games, talking about sports, and trying to get laid. They went to the nightclubs really early and I fucking hate clubs. Too loud, queues massive, can't talk to anyone, I can't dance for shit, and drinks were really expensive.
I prefer to stay at home and stick a film on and slowly get smashed
making your happiness this dependent on others
fawning this hard over someone who probably doesnt think about you at all
how did you not get this out of your system at like age 6
if it has no calories it doesn't have carbs either
that anxiety is one of the THE most unpleasant things in the world
brb moving to Glasgow
if the booze is getting you through college then so be it, but when the time comes to transition to a career, you should visit a doctors office and talk with them about various alcoholism meds. i currently take naltrexone for cravings and it works very well.
God damn those are some ugly whores.
Technically it just has such an insignificant amount of calories that it can legally be counted as zero.
the answers you're looking for are probably not in this thread
Probably not, but I came here to feel less lonely and your replies gave me that. I wasn't a heavy drinker before, alcohol invited itself slowly into my life to ease the anxiety. The worst is getting up in the morning, wait a bit, generally until noon, and be given the thought that you won't be able to do shit if you don't have a drink before. You end up drinking and doing shit, regretting, self-shaming and the next day you're back into the loop. Anyway I wish I was still at 750ml per day, be brave user, you're far from irredeemable.
Especially when you are having visual or auditory hallucinations or both. Tends to make a feller a tad jumpy.
Britannia rule the waves
Holy fuck. My peeps.6:33am, onto the second bottle of vodka, and you guys are here. It's nice not to be alone. Thankyou
The one in the middle needs to be placed about 5 feet off camera lol
So why not do a beer taper like a civilized person? I dont get why you people make yourselves go through hell.
Potatoes need love too... And a bottle + a cock ring to keep it up while your nailing that potato from behind because if you saw the face you'd slap it silly...
Its like their faces got to 75% loading and then the computer crashed
Going through ferocious vodka WD, and cannot keep a single shot down for long enough that it’ll take effect, lol. Have drunk 350ml and managed to keep maybe one capful down. Having seizures and throwing up while fucking unconscious. Shaking is absolutely insane, like, limbs almost feel like they’re going spontaneously to start flying around. Eyes and nose streaming, entire intestine on fire, terrible fever and I’m bleeding. lol.
Hospital will not have me because I keep relapsing.
Fucking rodeo, motherfuckers. This shit is white-knuckle surreal, I feel like any moment now I’m going to uncontrollably begin screaming and run into the woods to... somehow escape.
Gents this is do intense. Oh my god. It’s so hard to explain this feel, but yo EVERYTHING is somehow.. PAINFULLY vivid. Everything is a threat, and all of my worst imaginable fears feel real. I’m not certain I’m going to cope all night. I’m very very unheard scared.
There we go.
Need to burp user. Something fizzy. It'll help keep the stuff down. Not going into specifics, it's what you need.
Go to a hospital. If you cant make it on your own get an ambulance or a taxi. C'mon man.
Right there with ya man. Shit sux but we keep doing it to ourselves
Yeah I'm in that same loop, wake up puking bile and snot, can't muster to do much work during the morning, start drinking at break, drink more a lunch, come back to work then don't give two shits to work and end up getting hardly anything done. Thankfully I work an office job n it appears my other team members are worse than me or its hard to be fired here doing a mediocre job.
This chat is usually welcoming and comfy so post whenever you feel. I'm not here everyday but here when I need it.
Where is the bleeding coming from?
This is important.
I thought I just got allergic to the cats but... Yeah, black puke every morning. Well, black puke after I finally sleep after 4 hours. And uncontrollable sinuses. This is the booze?
Oh yeah, someone was asking about grog way back, it's O.P. Dark rum. 53% minimum, so you guys in Burgerstan would say 106 proof. I think.
If the bleeding is Anal you gotta get to hospital quick. That's a runaway ulcer in your stomach.
I’m shitting and puking pure rd blood. No joke,I haven’t eaten for days, just lots of blood keeps building up apparently. Face is really scarily white/flushed looking and it’s taking me fucking forever to reply, my eyes are streaming so much that it’s hard to see
I’ve had an idea. Halfway through this post it has occurred to me that I can squirt vodka up my asshole. Brb
Not gonna help. Hospital. Please.
Guess I'm going to have to watch Leaving Las Vegas again...
Fuck man. Get to hospital.
If you're puking blood it's most likely either esophageal varices or a stomach ulcer. You need to speak to a doctor, preferably today.
Dying of enlarged veins in your esophagus bursting is no picnic, user.
Idk if they pass into the blood as suppository, but it may be a solution if your dealer can deliver to your place.
Good luck bro.
He's been there too many times.
% should be similar to wine.
Also, what tool do you have for the enema?
Guessing the turkey baster didn't work. Hope user can yell for help now :(
It's so fucked. I'm literally on the other side of the world, and I can't do shit. Except have another.
He's in England, if I recognised correctly. London I think, but I'm not sure.
Can hospitals really deny you help. Yeah if ya just detoxin i can see them turning you away. But the mans leaking blood surely they have to help.
NHS will take him in, yeah?
Well, we need a Burgerstani to answer that.....
Not in bongland, they can get pissed off with you but they cant turn round and tell you to fuck off.
Get to the hospital lad. How much have you been drinking for it to get this bad?
al/ck/ I think my vodka syringe worked. Hurt like a bitch but suddenly the terror seems to be rapidly dissipating and all symptoms are being replaced by an overwhelming exhaustion. A quite comfortable albeit overbearing sleepiness.
Crying, but think I’m alright.
Thank you all so much for, well, just for being al/ck/. No fuckers understand this shit except you.
I think I’ll be ok. I have to sleep now, a lot.
Tc all. Thank you all again just for existing.
See you in 8 hours maybe when it fucking starts again.
Apparently they grew bored of detoxing him every month for a few years. They treated him when he went in a coma.
3 to 4 70cl bottles of Smirnoff every day for over a decade.
(Again, if I'm not mistaken on the person.)
Add water, enema is supposed not to be stronger than wine. The tissues there will die like bacteria in disinfectant.
And eat something. Not eating for days has always been what made me puke.
Um, I've been doing more than 700ml/day for the last 5 years.... Am I in the downward spiral or can I still taper without naltrexone?
tfw you quit drinking
Shit. Saw cl, my bad. Ok, I should be good, he's in Duff McKagen territory.
You have to taper with alcohol or benzodiazepines.
I don't think naltrexone helps with withdrawals, it's for cravings once you're on the wagon.
See a doc for an outpatient rehab/benzo prescription.
A bottle a day is still a lot, even if some rock-star or Mesopotamian-cave-painting-board-star drink more.
how long on the wagon?
You aren’t mistaken.
I’m sorry all, for that unpleasant episode. I just couldn’t get alcohol into me and I could tell that delirium was looming, threatening, imminent. FUCK DT’s, I think I might rather die than go through it again.
I feel back in control now. In fact I’ve managed to keep the better part of a pint down, and I feel pretty good.
Panic over. Brb sleeping for aeons. Ily al/ck/.
It's kind of hard to say. Once I realized it was a problem I went nearly cold turkey. I had a few slip ups, but every time I did I hated it. Like it just would make me feel dirty when I was sitting there drunk. It's probably been about a year since I've been drunk drunk.
I still have a drink now and again though. I'll have a beer after work, wine for a fancy meal, a margarita with a meal at a mexican place because goddamn I love sour. It's rare though. A six pack of beer will last me a month. Any time I do have a drink I never MUST HAVE MORE. I have my one beer and I'm happy.
God, it's so nice to have solid shits like a normal healthy human bean.
The rare successful moderator. I tried this but everything goes wrong when there's liquor about. With wine and beer I can sort of walk the tightrope. Maybe.
See you later alligator.
Any time I do have a drink I never MUST HAVE MORE
Any time I have a dri-
Why do I wake up on the ground next to my bed with my pants inside-out and an empty 1L bottle of vodka next to me? And who's blood is that on my face?
i hope i get to where you are one day. especially this part:
Like it just would make me feel dirty when I was sitting there drunk
Ty, will see how it goes in straya. Fucked up thing is, I have a biological brother who's a rehab administrator... Might have to leave the state (NSW) to get unbiased treatment.
calculate what your vodka intake would be in 5% alc or less beers of brand of choice
switch to said beer
allow yourself your daily vodka intake equivalent of beers at first (you probably won't even get there becauseo of the volume)
start drinking a few beers less each day
gently land in soberland in about one or two weeks
Don't expect it to be completely smooth sailing though, getting off booze is never easy, not even with a slow beer taper.
Love to, but allergic to wheat. Explains why the first one would always shoot out the mouth 5 minutes after drinking it.
Honestly, Thank you. There are people more deserving that need more help, but the fact that you offered your help in terms of your own journey... Man that shit just makes me feel like we can get through this together. On Veeky Forums, of all the fucking places! In all seriousness, thank you. I'd buy you one... But it'd probably be better buying you the meal, because I'd mess up the drinks!
Depressingly dumb image for that post, but keep up the good work with your sobriety. Congrats.
Why aren't they selling any breakfast stouts in my area, I've had it once and realized my life fucking sucks
No more friends because all they want to do is drink
Have no clue what to do now that I don't drink
Even years later I'm just kinda milling around going "Now what?"
Guess I'll go to church or.. something.
I suspect this is how non-alcoholics live their lives from the start. Just an eternal meh.
Do it fgt
In fact, everyone do this immediately.
Musical instrument? I'm off to buy some drumsticks, Guitar Hero my only friend :P
tfw no prime shue whore gf
where are my fellow benzo addicts
He couldn't get it up, remember? Sure you've been there. God knows I have...
It really is the ultimate alcoholic movie. Mandatory viewing.
Fly safe user
What do you guys think of Summer Breeze by Seals and Crofts?
Didn't mean to quote you
3 to 4 70cl bottles of Smirnoff every day
so 2100-2800ml per day? Jesus fuck is he going for a record
how would you even down that from a physical viewpoint
or build up to that point, like how would you even down 1500ml a day every single day
if you're awake 16 hours a day, downing 2800 would be 175mL per hour which is about 4 drinks an hour
surely you'd have to train your body to do this the same way sumo wrestlers can just gorge on food
Explain, as if I'm drunk, how much 1500ml exactly is. I down a half a handle of 35% rum every day. Who's in deeper, me or him?
You just drink everyday morning to evening, your tolerance raise, so you slowly drink more daily.
That's how I went up to about 100cl daily. I would most likely drink more now if I hadn't stopped.
The hard part is having enough money without working, and maintaining enough health to not be forced to rehab in hospitals. Eating food once a day and taking multivitamins seems to be enough.
a handle is 1750ml
175ml an hour
every single hour
every single day
I just don't get how people do it
Confirmed this tonight. One of my main problems is that she is one of the only people I've talked to for months. Had a falling out now though, so unless I kill myself I'll probably learn from it.
Eh. Too late. Already did for two months. Funny that it never goes both ways though.
Probably offing myself though. We'll see after I finish all the alcohol I have in the house. See you on the other side.
is that even a woman on the right or a man in drag?
staying in hotel on business
Not Drinking Tonight
room has minibar
r.i.p minibar at 10x price of buying if from a store
fuck my life
did you want to bang her, but instead just talked to her for months?
I didn't want to bang her. I just wanted to protect and treasure her more than anything. I saw her as wife material rather than mate material. She's manipulative though, and tried to get money out of me near the end. It was all just an act. She lied about a ton of things.
I’m currently trying to handle my urges to drink with the help of Xanax. I hit 50mg to avoid the lunch trigger and another 50mg to set off the high risk situation that is the end of the day when I leave the workplace.
Welcome to women in general! Brought to you by autocorrect
I'm a lez, user. It's a generalization to call all women bad, but definitely most if not all bisexuals and all straight women are whores.
tfw she had casual drunken sex with a literal stranger, was banging some guy for months and said with a straight face she was a virgin.
Is there anything better than the palpable, slow descent into drunkenness?
are women are at least slightly bisexual, there are just differences in how open they are about it
That happened to me too many times.
Stop talking to the succubus, delete her from FB, live the solitary life in needed.
There are decent girls out there. There are also monsters leeching on less fortunate souls. Don't let them reach you.
Work on social life and having decent human being as friends first, then you'll see about dating.
The sweet release of death after the slow, painful and hellish descent into alcoholism.
the first few days after withdrawals end and you start to feel happy, clean and full of vitality
then of course boredom sets in once you get using to not killing yourself and you start thinking about a drink
Nah, I'm legitimately not in the slightest. It's kind of like strawberries vs passionfruit. I love strawberries and can eat them all day. One taste of passionfruit just kills my appetite and makes me wanna puke. I'd say that's 0%. I don't even like penetrative sex.
It's rare, though. Sure.
go fuck yourself
I hope you mean .5mg
yet if someone took an MRI of your clitoris while showing you gay male porn you would still get turned on, just like every other "lesbian" on the planet. The vast, vast majority of women want to be dominated by a big strong man, regardless of what they say. Because they evolved for thousands of years to expect to be raped, pillaged and taken as war prizes
you're a fucking idiot
you have it backwards, it's incels who are more likely to be ignorant of what gets pussies wet, who believe every word that comes out of a woman's mouth
alright im done shitposting sorry dudes
Wait until you're in your mid twenties to develop a habit.
Good on ya lad. Nothing wrong with drinking responsibly.
Yes 0.50mg (2x0.25). For now I’ve found the method to be effective but it slows brain activity so much that I’m growing sick of it rapidly.
I only drink less so that I can continue drinking
when I go on a huge binge I can't drink for at least 12-16 hours afterwards
I became admin of a cryptocurrency group with 30k members
I'm getting offers to promote certain tokens and I've been making more than $1k a week just from shilling. Should I quit my job?
you can answer that question better than anyone here, and you probably already know the answer you want to heae by asking such an open ended question
it's not that pleasurable anymore
I just have to drink more, right?
Some people have trouble with passionfruit. I can't remember if it's an allergy or if it's like genetic like cilantro/coriander tasting like soap.
And then a little bit more
it's not that pleasurable anymore
Because you wake up withdrawing too much to be able to drink, and have to shove vodka up your ass to not go to the hell that DT are, and as soon as you're able to keep anything down, proceed to drink yourself into a blackout and pass out, only to repeat the circle every few hours?
Drinking more doesn't help on the long run.
This is why
I can only drink on the weekend because of my job.
I get black out drunk on my 2 days off and I think it's ruining the only free time I get.
That's what I did for a long time. Now my schedule is more chaotic so I just get buzzed every night but never drunk. I'm not sure which is worse.
i know how you feel, was doing the same thing for 6+ months
felt like my days off were non existent and then id return to work feeling hungover and shit
mostly just lay around on the couch watching tv getting drunk and sleeping all day
i find if you can at least do one productive or enjoyable thing you feel much better
for me it was just the smallest thing like going out to buy groceries or cleaning up my house a bit
I wake up every day with some scotch then get into the kitchen. I'm getting severely depressed ever since I had to split with my ex (heroin addict, needed to get away from the area) and I didnt go with her
I thought she was dead, then she texted me the other day and said shes coming back in december for christmas
I'm trying to get in shape again and stop drinking so I can improve my life, I've been in a dead end job for too long and I need to start teaching art like I'm supposed to.
but fuck I love scotch so much, I've gotten too used to the depression. but if I cant get her back this time, I'm just going to drink myself to death
I do get out of the house and do stuff but most of the activities I'd do involve drinking.
I go fishing a bit but I take a cooler full of booze.
Sometimes me and a few friends go for a bicycle ride along this beach path that has a lot of bars along it, we stop at every bar and by the end of the path we're drunk.
If it's a hot day we go kayaking and swimming in the local creek, end up drunk every time.
Just typing this out makes me realize I really enjoy doing these alcohol fuelled activities.
face is on fire
just like every other time I've taken my medicine over the past 3 years
Flushing sucks bros. Don't get sick. Alcohol makes it worse.
I take multivitamins to stave off malnutrition and antidepressants to stave off suicide
What gives you fire-face?
Medicine that helps protect myelin sheaths. For a neurological disease.
yeah, I'm not really seeing the problem
sounds you like you do what you enjoy and have a good time doing it
I was literally getting home from work, starting to drink and the next two days would be me in and out of consciousness drinking and lying on the couch/bed with absolutely no human contact
sounds like you have a pre-conception that you can't enjoy the activities or your time is wasted because you were drinking
If all my friends are busy I'll just drink myself into a coma at home alone on the couch.
I do get out of the house and do stuff but most of the activities I'd do involve drinking.
Same here, playing pool and playing disk golf.
usually my buddy and I slam a case or 2 of hamms and end up passed out. Pool is tougher since its usually in a bar.
I found it helps to actually try an get really good at something, and I'm shitty at everything when I'm drunk
get drunk to the point where I'm drooling onto my pullover
I don't want to become an alcoholic, what do I do?
but you made it sound as if that's not the regular
I mean really if you're getting out of the house for at least one of those activities or other things in those two days I don't see a problem
just because drinking is always involved doesn't make it a bad thing to go and do
mainly curious if people thought it was sustainable, I've also never quit a job
Pull up a chair and get comfy you're among friends here senpai.
It's been more than two and a half years, but I still miss the Everclear. I would black out quite frequently, but I was also taking benzos daily too. I actually miss blacking out. Beer makes me feel bloated and most liquor makes me feel like shit.
Why not? You're still plenty young and have a future ahead of you. Start a taper and enjoy life. Leave this board and never look back.
I FUCKING HATE MYSELF
I DON'T WANT TO BE A STUPID ALC
I JUST WANT TO BE HAPPY AND MAYBE EVEN HAVE A GF
I DON'T WANT TO BE SUCH A FAILURE
No wonder the Brits took to the seas and colonized most of the world when their options back home were so dire.
Buddy I say this in all sincerity, see a doctor. dark/black vomit is a sign of stomach bleeding. Also the sinus stuff is related to alcohol, not positive why but when I quit that resolved first thing.
what you drinking buddy?
a bunch of super depressed anime highschoolers usually makes me feel better.
went though a handle in less then 24 hours
some point in there my mother came over to discover me shitfaced and cutting the grass
lectured me about drinking and cutting
lectured me more when she went home though text
What are really bad withdrawals like? Also, talk about your worst alcohol-related health problems. I'm on day 2 of sobriety trying to pull myself out of a slow spiral into alcoholism and motivation would be helpful.
really bad desu, only withdrawals from benzos and opiates are worse, kratom and nonalcoholic beverages help in a pinch, but you have to make lifestyle changes, don't go cold turkey, wean yourself off slowly
I get this. You open your mouth and it sounds like popping candy on a tongue coming from the back of your throat.
maybe you shouldn't have shot it out of your window in the middle of a Canadian city then you goof
Why didn't Elizabeth Shue have a better career? She was hot and talented.
She didn't let (((them))) jerk off in front of her during auditions.
Even minor withdrawals sucks. Waking up every night at 3AM sweating your asshole, severe mental guilt, anxiety about what you are doing to yourself, yet at noon you already feel cravings it's awful.
Then once you progress beyond that point it's not even just sweats, general sleeping issues, difficulty sleeping unless drunk. General confusion, heavy fog about you for weeks until dry.
After you go deeper into alcoholism it becomes much worse, morning sickness, general inability to function well, if at all, without a few drinks leaving you small windows daily to operate. This is the point many people lose jobs and relationships.
Once those are all gone it just becomes a downward spiral to constant drinking and literally just living in a stupor until you get out of it.
fuck man i wouldve called an ambulance at that point go to the hospital
Guys I need help
I just transitioned from drinking a half bottle of whiskey a day to a few beers a day.
Today after I got home and tried to relax after dinner, I began forgetting things that happened earlier in the day. I'm still having difficulty remembering things.
I know there's a word for it but I can't remember that either. My heart rate is up, I can't remember a lot of shit right now. I'm trying to calm down.
I just cracked a beer thinking it was the DTs.
Is this the DTs?
What do I do?
This is probably it, she wouldn't put out on the casting couch.
It really depends on how long you've been drinking user. A half bottle (750ml?) is not actually that much. Now if you have been doing it for decades, that's different.
Definitely taper off, but know this. I only drank heavily for 3 years, roughly didn't drink 2-3 days a month in that period, and I am currently 10 days sober and I forget a ton of shit I do earlier, conversations. It's a typical mental fog that can last from a week to about 2 months depending on how long you've drank.
It will pass, you are more anxious than anything.
i get sweats if the withdrawals are significant enough. are you shaky? sweating? drink the beer over 20 minutes and see how you feel then. if you feel better, you were getting withdrawals.
Imagine the most crippling anxiety on earth, Now imagine that 10 fold with seizures and hallucinations.
Stop drinking while you can
Sound like moderate withdrawals to me and brain fog. Relax, that anxiety is definitely withdrawals.
I've accepted I'm going to die from something alcohol related and I will never live a sober life.
Oh well, God and the afterlife aren't real so fuck it.
We only get one ride around, Might as well make it a happy/drunk one.
you sound naive to be honest mate.
lel. there is pain and fear ahead that you can't even imagine.
Nah, I'm with that user. The day drinking is no longer fun I'm taking the Big Sleep.
That's a different approach which leads to less suffering. user is planning to die from something alcohol related, which is more like this:
Actually drinking yourself to death is literally torture.
Trees Lounge also.
Under the Volcano is the pinnacle of Al/ck/ kino and /lit/. I cried bitch tears friends.
Love this shit
I went to Mexico and did a lot of drinking there after reading that book. After I got back, I read the wiki for it and discovered how much I didn't know. Really a classic.
pretty sure the only drugs with withdrawals that can kill you are benzos and alcohol
I have constant bladder pain from nerve damage and I'm only 24
those are the only ones that are still common yeah. barbiturates, ludes all other sorts of downers have the same problem.
explain how alcohol fucked up your nerves
I usually start drinking myself to sleep at midnight. I have an appointment tomorrow at 1100 hours, so I started drinking 2 hours early. Think it will work?
first thing from Google
I've got peripheral neuropathy from the alcohol. Feet always hurt, fingers numb.
Alcoholic neuropathy isn't controversial user
shit sucks. I've got to piss almost every hour.
I don't have that one. Sounds terrible. When is it catheter time?
tfw tingly limbs
So is this shit reversable? Probably not, right?
Weight loss user here; tldr 6ft 160lbs dropped to 138lbs during a hardcore 7 day binge. Stayed busy today, bought another bloomin onion. Things are gonna be okay, God willing
right. Nerve damage is a one way ride. For now. Maybe they'll come up with something someday. It's also a symptom of diabetes, which is usually part of the alcoholic sequela anyway, so it's all tangled up. You can get it from taking statins, too, and since alkies usually have high cholesterol, their well meaning doctors prescribe those, too.
i thought that shit was mainly caused by diabetes and congenital disorders. you learn something every day
it's always catheter time. Just shove that bad boy in there and never have to worry about going to the bathroom again
comes with free UTIs
i get that stuff during w/d's but it goes away when i sober up. i think its related to b vitamin deficiency but i could be wrong...
I was only catheterized once, when I had a kidney stone. They they gave me dilaudid. Worth it, desu.
Hopefully never. I carry something to piss in in my car though.
It was no treat. They went in dry because I had the audacity to wake up the ER doc.
I'm this guy.
Oh my god, I've never been hit with the DTs before, but jesus christ that felt like I was dying. I went to go get some whiskey because I was trying to detox on high percent beer. Not a good idea.
Looks like I'll be weening off on whiskey for the next few days to weeks.
DTs are scary man.
Transient global amnesia. Not unusual. Short term memory gets short circuited. It should come back.
How do I stop myself from drinking? I've had hard liquor every night for the past couple weeks. It's not too bad (relatively) yet, but I got a new job recently and am starting to get my life back on track, and I'd rather not succumb to alcohol dependency so quickly.
That shit was frightening. Thought I was having a stroke there for a few hours. I couldn't recall anything that happened earlier in the day. After two shots of whiskey everything is coming back and my heart rate is going back down. Starting to recall things that happened earlier in the day.
Doesn't TGA affect the person while they're under the influence, and not when they're sober/detoxing?
It's like dissociative disorder. Very frightening when it is happening. This is not some "where are my keys" level of mental instability.
It can happen before, during or after.
One bite of apple and I feel quite a bit better.
Ever heard of Hookers? They fucking changed my life.
I’ve only been sober for days so I’ll try to be optimistic.
I love how these threads help me to keep taking drinking seriously as a problem. It’s easy to forget once you’re sober even if you have been through horrible withdrawals.
Nobody cares but I managed to get back to 152lbs as of today. I go back to work Thursday. Been eating entire jars of peanuts. 6000 KCal each. Also so much Taco Bell. I want to be back in fighting shape by Thursday . You wouldn’t imagine my poops
they went in dry on me too, when i came in with public intox (benzos and alcohol)
woke up to a mad-looking nurse yank the dry cath out. hurt like a bitch.
you are right about that.
everybody cares. you are doing well right now, keep it up man. and if you gotta binge try not to go more than 3 days for christ sake.
Thanks user. I don’t PLAN on ever drinking again. But of course 1 day at a time and all that. Praying hard.
Really? Hookers helped? How?
I wish I were wealthy. Hookers are just too expensive for anything more than an occasional treat.
I wish alcohol was illegal. I can't take this.
tfw I completely lose my appetite on a bender
woke up at 5am drinking hard spirits again
here I am at 2pm waking up with a horrible hangover
why is morning drinking so difficult to continue all day
i say this to everybody. look into naltrexone. makes it easy to stop it from becoming a bender.
Because the body actually hates alcohol and does all it can to let you know it's time to give it a break
you drank yourself retarded, retard.
it really should be
Prohibition does not work. Illegal alcohol simply means you risk jail, it costs five times as much, tastes like hell and is filled with methanol.
I would never drink if it was illegal. I don't even go out of my way for weed.
What's the consensus on hand sanitizer, boys?
The girl at work dared me to squirt some onto our tongues to try it out and I was shocked at how palatable it was. It sorta numbed my tongue but it tasted just like a strong, floral vodka.
I'm guess it'll make me blind though, right?
not to mention that first good night's sleep after the withdrawals end. so fucking comfy.
stop doing shit women dare you to do
Does sugar make withdrawals worse? I swear to God, I can't stop fidgeting and shaking. I'm going fucking insane.
i started drinking regularly at 11...
absolutely. fructose (byproduct of sugar) directly competes with acetaldehyde (byproduct of ethanol) for metabolic resources within the liver and therefore slows the rate at which your body can break down alcohol. sometimes very significantly, like, more than double.
Lovely. This is going to be a goddamn long night.
here, sorry, i thought you said hangovers. i'm not so sure about WDs, although what i said is possibly still relevant depending on how far out of the woods you are (but you also probably already knew it)
Well I managed to quit for two weeks then hopped back on board with a Canadian mickey of 45% vodka. for 5 days.
bullshit. sugar always helps me get rid of asian flush (buildup of acetaldehyde)
Dat slav lyfe.
Any tips on what to buy al/ck bro? When to sell etc
Anyone get moderate but near constant abdominal pain that migrates around the gut area? Sometimes it feels like it would be my kidneys, sometimes liver etc. Been going hard (10ish or more beers oer bight) for going on 10 years. Its not a chronic pain but after months with it i am getting anxious i've done some permanent damage
you might be fucked, you might also just be bloated or having stomach issues from constant irritation
try taking a few days off of drinking to see if it decreases, see a doctor otherwise
I had a week off and it did seem to settle down but not go away entirely. Am.only 32 this is fukd
This, you’ll end up married with children
radical. you alright dude?
