>>26181334 It's really a matter of personal opinion, but not even that can be trusted because everyone has different ideas of "acceptable" drinking. My determination of an alcoholic: >1+ drinks per day >drinking in order to suppress emotion on a regular basis (more than once per week) >drinking hard liquor (3+ drinks), alone or with company, more than 3-4x per week >partying and getting trashed every weekend or more than twice a week
Having a beer or one hard drink at the end of the day does not make you an alcoholic, even if it's every day, unless you feel that you need to.
I rarely drink- only at parties or when I pick up a bottle (once every month to every 3 months)- and MAYBE 2-3x per week (when in possession of said bottle), max
>>26182220 Well I think there is a difference between drinking to get drunk(numb) and drinking to enjoy the taste. You should be able to distinguish. But that's just my opinion, so don't take my word for it.
>>26182288 Well I for one must have some kind of genetic disposition towards very mild hangovers. My ancestors from fathers side have pretty much all been known to drink a lot. Honestly I've never puked the second day, worst thing that happens if I drink a slightly larger amount of alcohol(like 12 beers or a pint of 40% alcohol) is that I feel a little washed up, but I can function normally, my head never hurts once I drink some water in the morning. Only time I ever puke is during drinking(which is rare anyways) so it's not a hangover as much as alcohol poisoning.
Compare that to my relatives who spend their whole day in bed unable to do fucking anything. I've been blessed in a very strange way. I've actually made couple people sick by waking up after a party and taking a shot first thing in the morning.
I don't have any problems that would make me an alcoholic i just enjoy drinking, i like when you're quite buzzed and music is like someone spraying squirty cream into your ears. (really really fucking nice)
>>26182650 One pint of hard liquor? I mean that's a lot, even if it's just 40% liquor of just one brand. There is no shame about that. Also not having hangovers isn't that great really. It just removes the inhibition and I drink more than I would have if I had hangovers like a normal person.
It's kind of like pain. I mean sure, it sucks when something hurts you, but without it you wouldn't know something is wrong.
Personally, I think you're an alcoholic if you drink in the morning. Or any kind of planned day drinking. Thats what separates to from society when you get sick from not drinking so you compensate by drinking constantly...
>>26182481 >drinks to get drunk, not because they enjoy the taste >drinks more than 4 units in one session (men) or 2 units in one session (women) >drinks over 12 units per week Fuck.
>drinking in order to suppress emotion on a regular basis (more than once per week) FUUUCK
Right now I've wanted to drink ever since I got home, and I'm just staving it off. I also stopped tasting my wine, I just slam it back as if it were soda. I know I have a problem but I don't really want to stop either.
I know. My point is that drinking hard liquor for the taste is no different from drinking beer or wine for the taste. If he personally doesn't like the taste of hard liquor, that's fine, I'm not going to be one of those guys who calls him a pussy for it, but he shouldn't be projecting his personal distaste for it into: "I don't enjoy how this tastes, so anyone who does must have a problem."
And once again, this is coming from someone who has no problem admitting he has a problem with the amount he drinks.
