>>7236288 alcoholism is a relatively new disorder, we havent had strong enough liquor for more than 3000 years and even then it was restricted to upper classes. It wasn't until the 1300s we got really strong liquor, hardly enough time to breed it out of humanity, esp since it doesnt kill you untill your 50s, past prime breeding time
Addiction is addiction. No matter the chemical or stimulus. Women treated for a shopping addiction get the same therapy as someone coming off drugs or alcohol...with the exception of the extensive medical treatment necessary to ween people off chemicals.
Don't rationalize your mental retardation to me, I'm not your case worker or parole officer.
Yeh Im taking a break for the month too, also going off porn and sugar, but the aim is for the porn and sugar to come back as a special treat and for alcohol to come back as a 2-3 day a week thing. Not alcoholic, just need a break from the holiday period. Porn and sugar are just bad for you.
>>7236321 What's with the meme that alcoholics only drink spirits? I drink mostly cider. You can get drunk on anything, and if you get drunk every night, can't do without it and regularly stay drunk for extended periods, you definitely fit the bill.
Actually I'm almost certain it's an American thing or something to do with older folk. My dad drinks cider too and has been an alcoholic since he was my age. However my friend's aunt is convinced he's an alcoholic since she found a single whiskey bottle in his room, which he kept because it looked nice.
Can anyone shed some light on why people think this way? But I guess my point was that you can get black out drunk on almost anything you drink fast enough, unless you're really overweight, and so alcoholism has probably existed since humans have had easy access to any sort of alcohol.
please help me /ck/ i mean i love you guys. so i like to drink. ive always stuck to beer and wine. but ive gotten into harder shit. right now im drinking rum 35% straight. and is this ok? i mean it wont hurt me right? i feel good. but even though i feel that little burn when i take a sip, its ok? its not indicitive that something is wrong? im sorry im a hypochondriac?
but when is a hard drink "too" hard? like, is it "ok" to drink vodka or rum from a glass, in the same way that one drinks beer or wine from a glass? im drinking rum out of a wine glass. how will i know if its seriously compromising my health
took a half a xanax my bitch gave me and HTG it seems to be working famslam. Didn't drink more than a glass or so of vodka last night and on track to get to bed with less than a pint under weigh tonight
No not even close. Already drank this year. But I'm not an alcoholic and wasn't trying to. >>7236288 lol don't be silly. we're never going to breed out addiction-susceptible personality traits. Most addictions kill you slowly enough that you can reproduce first.
besides, there's a very real chance it's actually mostly a product of normal brain processes in odd circumstances. There may not be a way to breed an addiction-proof human.
Is dry January a thing? I've only ever heard of dry July. That makes sense because it rhymes. January is totally arbitrary, and a horrible idea in both hemispheres. The northern hemisphere wants spirits for comfort in the cold, the southern hemisphere wants beer for comfort in the heat.
I'm doing pretty good so far. But it's not really a surprise. I fall into the category of alcoholics who go through long periods of drinking and then periods of sobriety. I can stay off the drink if I have to, but I always go back.
was in aa for 9 yrs out of it for 4. taking time off to lose a lbs n let tolerance drop. most people picked up cause they stopped going to meeting I picked up so I could stop going to meeting. once in awhile I go to an anniversary meeting.
>>7237301 For me, it's the point between Wild Turkey 101 and Everclear. Haven't had Bacardi 151 in a while though, so it's a big range. 101 goes down smooth, but Everclear will make you sound like you were just in a couple's shouting match.
>>7240516 I mean, I don't doubt that's what the cause of mine was. I've been drinking very heavily for like 5 or 6 years now. Both men and women in both sides of my family have thick hair, so I know it's not attributed to genetics.
I just want my luscious thick hair back. I hope my doctor can get me back on the right track next week.
>>7240506 I remember you. Just get used to your hair getting thinner, nothing escapes the ravages of time. If you're up to it, get propecia, but make sure you cut that shit if you get any of those wacky side effects ASAP
