When did you realise alcohol is fucking stupid?
brb killing gains, getting hangovers, doing dumb shit just to fit in/have confidence because you don't have any when you're sober
I realized after two years of lifting. I made sick gains in the first six months but never put on any more muscle after that. I trained like a sick cunt but i drank too excess every night. Now i probably have one drink every two months.
>mfw I go to the club / bars blazed and have a way better time then I did drinking
I still drink from time to time. I actually just brewed a batch with my brohon today. Had a single beer while we brewed. Every once in a great while I'll go ape shit and drink until the nights over.
Drinking is fun sometimes. I wouldn't want to do it every night or every week for that matter. Every so often tho I have a great time getting hammered with friends and family.
Working out is great I do it EVERYDAY. 4 day strength training, 3 days bjj/thai, stretch daily, mobility exercises, cardio and what ever else I seem to feel I need to toss in. I eat planned meals as well.
At the end of the day you've gotta be human imo. You've gotta enjoy life and the different foods, drinks, entertainment, etc... Life's short...working outs great and probably benificial but again you've also gotta be human.
I try to narrow it down to no more than 1 day a month of allowing myself to drink, even then not to a great excess.
inb4 only manlets get shitfaced, real men know their limits
>want to stop boozing so much
>try smoking pot
>holy fuck why didnt i do this a decade ago
after the first few times of legally drinking at 21, i didn't even have my first drink until i was 19 so i think i did alright
sometimes i drink to drown my feels though. at home, alone, with the phone and computer turned off
It's like a reward system for me. I lift 5 days a week so if I get up, get my ass to the gym and lift heavy, I don't feel bad having 2-3 beers on a Saturday night. Not getting shitfaced anymore honestly feels good after about 5 years if heavy drinking.
>not drinking occasionally i excess so you can be healthy most of the time but still not be a boring cunt
m8 it should be the opposite, if you lifted heavy then drinking alcohol will fuck up your recovery. I make sure not to lift if I'm planning on going out in the evening.
Nigga you don't understand.
I'll lift on monday-friday then rest sat and Sunday. Saturday is when I'll drink no more than 3 beers. It may not be ideal but I used to drink 5-10 beats every 3 days
Alcohol was my go to cutting food, as it kills my appetite and as long as I made sure I didn't drink too much or anything shite (whiskey masterrace) I could easily loose all the fat I needed on it.
Yes it has fucked up my liver in the long run. Currently eating and living very clean and hoping it will recover.
I go to the gym stoned all the time. I like being active when I'm high because it helps with the relaxation aspect of get fit. You sound like the type of guy who doesn't like anything.
I drink on pretty much every single one of my days off to relax and it's never done me (or my gains) any harm.
> vodka & Pepsi max master race
>in b4 'I only drink single malt vintage whisky' fedora fags
Real MVP shit. Similar, but less dedicated here. Got a DWI, and decided to have exactly one standard martini per day/night. When I go out with friends, one drink every two hours, so I can DD
Currently doing dry January. Until now really didn't realise how bad my drinking had gotten. 12th day in and my sleep patterns are so much better and my skin has visually improved. Not to mention the amount of empty calories I must have been consuming, add on to that the hunger for shit food alcohol gives you.
I'd like to think I could never touch the stuff again and I really hope I can stick to that
I did some hard drinking in 2015 and I work at place with a bunch of retarded people who get drunk on the weekends and go back into wage slavery.
Frankly I don't mind the stuff at all but it's a bloody waste of money when you buy it every weekend and a good way to keep yourself at scrub level for the rest of your life. I really will miss my Scotch Single Malts but it's probably best if I just stick to being selective about it.
But you're right, even if I could afford it, it turns you into a weak bitch if you drink it too much.
I used to drink heavily while I was at it but I noticed I get pretty agressive. So I cut my consumption to maybe a six pack per night which works nicely. I drink about once a month or two.
Also if I decide not to drink then the whole night is:
> OH MY GOD WHY DONT U DRINK FAG
>GET SOME SHOTS YO
>MAN WTF WHY ARE YOU WITH US IF YOU DONT DRINK
Since I quit uni my diet nor exercise regime has changed but I've packed on muscle. Drinking about 20 units on a night out (twice a week) was killing my body.
But damn do I miss it.
Why do women get so fat from alcohol consumption? Why don't they know any moderation/have self control?
>tfw I rarely drink so my tolerance is constantly pretty low
>tfw the most alcohol i've had at one time was 3.5 shots of 151
>woke up drunk the next day, but didn't wake up hungover
>tfw I've never been hungover or vomited from alcohol consumption
I kinda want to shift more from alcohol to pot because I hear about the relaxation, no hangover etc. which sounds like a good deal but then again I've tried weed once (as pot brownies) and I was high for like 36 hours, at my peak at 4am I was watching The Croods and I couldn't understand a single fucking thing and every time the camera zoomed in or out it felt like the TV was travelling at fucking warp speed towards or away from me, so I kinda just want to stick to alcohol
Most drunk I've ever been was after a bunch of 151 shots. I don't remember anything from the night and woke up on the floor next to a garbage can full of vomit. At least I hit the can
Edibles are incredibly strong and long lasting. It's much more powerful than just a single bong rip. No one would just have edibles constantly, you'd be baked out of your mind 24/7
A lot, I consumed somewhere between 2.5 and 3 grams of brown on my own. I fucked up to say the least
>one hour after eating my first brownie, feel nothing. Eat some more
>two hours, okay I think I took too little because I can't feel anything and my friends are starting to feel good. Eat a good deal more.
>three hours, I feel a bit distant but my buddies are fucking spaced out and I'm not there AT ALL. Eat more brownies
>4 hours in feel a bit more distant but whatever
>5 hours in and my brain is fucking melting, literally EVERYTHING is too hard to comprehend and I'm floating in empty space
When I had to eat a quick dinner to get to the bar on time, then spending almost $200 on drinks/uber, then being hungover for the next two days, then trying to workout and cant even get close to my working weights, and ended up fucking up my shoulder.
>doing dumb shit
>have confidence because you don't have any when you're sober
>This is the only reason to drink for me. Feeling confident is fun
am I the only one who doesn't feel more confident when drunk?
it was not what I expected
I grew up drinking, because I live in Newfoundland. Now, at age 24, most of my friends continue to drink 3 or 4 nights a week, usually about a dozen beer or a 26 of liquor.
I have mostly given up drinking to excess. I still occasionally have a beer at night and I drink during the Christmas holidays (usually still get on with daily drinking shenanigans from about December 23 to January 2), a bit more than normal in the summer, and on special occasions (ie not just "the weekend" but if it's celebratory, usually once every 4-6 weeks). Moderation has helped me enjoy alcohol more, require less of it to become intoxicated, and pace myself when I'm drinking so that I can get that "soft" thinking feeling without losing control or blacking out.
>try edibles for the first time
>hour in don't feel shit
>double the dose
>suddenly high as fuck
>guess it takes 2.5 hours to kick in for some people
>keep getting higher
>mind detached from body
>takes 5 minutes for body to make any movement when I want it to
Woke up fine the next day, though. Jut my eyes were bloodshot as hell
Does anyone else get extremely depressed when they drink?
I think it has to do with set and setting like with psychedelics, but the last few times i've gone to bars, I wind up standing in a corner while contemplating suicide and then I leave all of my friends to get a sandwich and pass out.
Kind of like me.
> never a drinker, occasionally a beer
> never drunk

Why do people do this?
This. Although its not for everyone, I can vouch that getting high - but not so high that you cannot communicate - and going to a bar or club is underrated. I used to feel really anxious, but once I got over it, I turned into a social God. Like, I swear, I can just chat up a random chick and have her laughing in less than 20 seconds, and Ive actually done this, numerous times. I sorta just see things for what they are and, I suppose, really just let myself be who I am.
But anyway, OP had a bad night, probably involving a female, and has retreated to his favorite Colombian newspaper trading community to demonstrate his pathetic display of denial.
>upstairs fuggin some girl
>it's her birthday party some beta threw for her
>pastor's son was last seen in the garage drunk as all hell and eating the special brownies that he didn't know were special
>3 hours after coitus was initiated it's just me, girl, skinhead cousin (who was surprisingly mellow the entire night, he must have found the brownies), the pastor's son (who was still mia), and the now angry beta who was blacked out drunk in the kitchen trying to make biscuits and gravy
>girl and I go look for pastor's prodigy
>find him in the garage sitting in a seat he ripped out of the car parked in there
>his eyes are half closed
>doesn't look like he's breathing
>hear a rumble starting from his stomach
>goes up into his throat
>turns out to be him mustering up the strength to let out a rumbling whisper of "biiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiitch"
>girl and I laugh, go back to fuggin upstairs
Socially my confidence doesn't increase, I'm a very confidant guy normally. The only thing it really does is make me care less when I dance, and even then it's barely anything.
I usually get drunk so I can think less, it's a good release
This. Drinking does not have to mean getting shitfaced on gallons of nasty beer or fucking medical alcohol, just drink what you like, how you like it.
It's seriously pussy shit to drink yourself silly simply because you think people are expecting you to.
> Drinking does not have to mean getting shitfaced
that's what I keep telling myself before drinking and then I get annoyed I'm not buzzed enough, drink some more and end up finishing a 1L whisky bottle a few hours later
