>try liquor out of couriosity
how do people even become alchoholics? shit tastes like shampo mixed with gasoline
>tfw never been drunk
I'm not even opposed, I just never felt the inclination.
I don't drink because it makes me feel good. I drink because it makes me feel nothing.
Alcohol is like any other drug, if youre in a good environment with good people, it makes for a really good time.
as for not tasting good, thats why cocktails exist. Long Island Iced Teas, White russians, Sex On The Beach, etc
that being said, im a beer guy myself.
>lose shyness for the most part
The next day is always terrible though, so I still find it hard to get addicted.
Also, it's not really fun unless I have a place to vent all my newfound confidence, it's terribly boring when I'm alone or don't really feel like talking to the people I'm with.
>Liquor tastes like poison
probalby should have said that i only took one sip and couldnt help but wonder if i was going to die if i swallowed, took a dew to revive my taste buds
kek, it had been sitting in the back of my fridge for 8 years, forgot how i even got it
>took a dew
well, children love their liquid candy
that's probably why you don't like it.
Have you tried anything softer? Depending on where you live, beer might be a good choice. Maybe some cocktails with sprite or tonic?
it tastes like shit at first but then you get used to taste and some people end up liking the taste.
for me it's not a bad taste, but not a good taste.. it only tastes best at first drink because thats first drink of day. like having a water when you're really firsty.. doesn't 'taste' good at all since its water and has no taste, but still does in a way
just don't fall for the IPA memes. they taste like shit.
buy a wheat beer for an alright tasting beer
i always drink to much when I drink around other people
You have to get something expensive to get something that tastes good on its own (and even then you have to acclimate to it). If you're drinking from the bottom shelf, find a mixer. Or, tl;dr, I too remember being 13.
I used to say the exact same thing. Only spent my birthday and christmas money on chinese food and videogames...then I started smoking weed...and then liquor.
I've only paid for weed like a handful of times, I usually just smoke with my one friend. Liquor tastes meh but it gets you drunk and being drunk is a great feeling. Better than being high honestly.
On the other hand beer tastes like liquid shit...I don't know how faggots stomach that shit...tastes absolutely awful.
depends on the liquor. vodka and tequila are the worst, avoid them always. cheap gin is also always nasty, but sometimes the slightly pricier stuff is good when mixed with things. some cheap rums and whiskeys are alright, but it varies. mid shelf white/gold rums are probably best for a booze noob like you; really smooth (to the point where a lifelong Wahhabi could take a shot without even making a face), and they mix very well with juice/soda
I've literally only been drunk like 4 times. I've been "tipsy" maybe twice. I'm too much of a jew to actually spend my money on degenerate shit like liquor or weed. Although I got $1800 coming to me soon, I plan on buying a bunch of shit but I'll definitely put $40 to the side to buy some alcohol to get wasted for a week or so.
>Drinking not to get drunk
I'm 28 and never have I once had alcohol when my intention wasn't to get smashed.
It tastes like shit. Why would I get a vodka and orange when I can just get orange? Why wouldn't I order a coke instead of whiskey?
I'd rather just drink tap water t.b.h.
okay lets be real here
i didnt drink until i was in freshman year of college, and i was still under the age to legally drink
i came to quickly realize that beer is fucking gross as fuck and i hated any kind of it, especially the shit every chad drank
on the other hand im always down to drink hard liquor, vodka being my favorite since how smooth and easy it is to drink straight shots and get effeciently drunk
wine is ok too i guess, but you have to drink a lot of it to get wasted
heres an idea, OP, you tremendous faggot.
take that dew, put a clear liquor (vodka, preferably) into it, and drink it. now when i say put the liquor into it, i mean maybe a shot (~3 oz.) maybe less because you arent accustomed to the taste, but just try that.
well make you an alcoholic yet.
for most cheap alcohol, I agree with you. but once you hit the midshelf range ($8-12/6 pack beer, $10-20/750ml wine, $15-25/750ml liquor), quality and variety greatly increases. myself, even without the alcohol, I would prefer a beer like this over the vast majority of other beverages
It's a lot like being high but its kind of different. The closest thing I can equate it to is when you wake up half asleep and you kind if stumble everywhere, everything's blurry, and you can't think straight.
Personal anecdote: Got absolutely smashed on vodka one night. Don't remember a thing except puking in the back street and being in hospital, being told to puke by a doctor. I haven't liked the taste since, but I still drink it from time to time because it's usually not too pricey and available everywhere.
>not drinking with friends to socialize better
what are you, a loser?
I must admit, I have mostly just had really crap vodkas. but as I'm unwilling to pay $15 or more on a bottle of grain alcohol and water, I guess I won't find out
tequila is really the worst though, tastes like someone took cheap vodka, sloshed it around an unwashed compost bin, then strained and bottled it. again, could have just been the brand (Sauza, cheap but not the absolute cheapest), but I really struggled to finish that bottle
I can drink Liquor fine but I hate beer and it all tastes the same to me. "No Bro try THIS it's lighter"
>Still taste like grain
The last time I got really drunk I blacked out.
Woke up in a holding cell on a ferry the next morning. As soon as the ferry had arrived at it's destination I was escorted off the boat by 3 security guards. There I was in another country, still drunk, broke as fuck, no idea where I was.
>$40 for a week's worth of alcohol
>$15 for a bottle of vodka
Where do you people live? $15 here will get you a nice bottle of beer. A bottle of standard vodka smirnoff or such would be at least $25
A night out drinking, taxis, club entry (if applicable) etc. would cost me around $150-$200 give or take.
For a week that's over $1,000. Now I know you probably mean just drinking by yourself at home but still...
Oh, man. you missed out. It was that time when adult Swim wasn't all wobbly and new, like home videos, but it wasn't played out and shitty, like when they played nothing but family guy.
12.99 for a bottle of Austrian vodka, here. Smirnoff and any American vodka is shit. The Poles and Austrians can do it. I'm not sure about Finlandia. Svedka was not very good and Russian Standard was mediocre branding.
Had a glass of this last night. Wasn't all that. There's some coffee porter that comes and goes, which is pretty good. You know, I hate to say this but Trader Joe's actually has really good beer, for the price. Like $8 will get you drink off of pretty Ugly Pug, St. Arnolds, and whatever seasonal faggotry they're pushing.
really? IMO, it's one of Lagunitas' better offerings, and they certainly make a lot of quality beer. and yeah, Trader Joe's beer is really not bad, Boatswain is quite possibly the best beer for under $2.50 a 22oz bottle
It's been about 6 months since my last drink and I miss it so fucking much. I don't even miss getting drunk that much, I would only wanna do that again if it was with close friends also getting smashed. But I can so clearly imagine the taste of a nice scotch with water, or bourbon or rye on rocks. Gin and tonics are so refreshing, as are rum and cokes. The variety of beer is limitless, and a good crisp cider is just the right balance of sweet and tart. I never found I cared for white wine too much, but a good red is better and more complex than even the best whiskies I've tried and goes so well with a nice meal it's indescribable. I even liked tequila, sipping it, not shooting it, there's actually a lot of nuance to the taste if you take your time drinking it.
Fucking addiction man, it messes your life up.
