what is /sci/'s official position on Sat. night inebriation?
carpe diem, amirite?
You don't need an excuse to slowly kill yourself. It's happening anyway.
My official position is that I like to drink with my brothers, and I should not be drinking around certain people of the opposite sex.
I think letting go and relaxing and having a social life is very beneficial for mental health, which will probably increase your life span a lot more than alcohol would otherwise decrease it.
That's why I usually drink a decent amount Thursday, Friday, and Saturday, and usually black out one of those days.
It's not impossible to enjoy life without drinking, it's just more enjoyable to drink.
People that don't like drinking really just don't like that they don't have any friends to drink with.
The world is not as black and white as you think. You need more flexibility and nuance in your thinking.
Occacionally drinking alcohol is not the same thing as needing it to talk to other people. That you would believe this tells us something about how autistic you actually are.
Also, stop being a mad, pathetic faggot.
>being this deluded
>this tells us something about how autistic you actually are
this only tells me how stuck in your bad habits you actually are.
It's not too late to improve, subhuman.
> oh yeah lets sit down and have a beer
> oh it feels good lets have another one

> You know meth goes great with cannabis right ?

> i'm so glad i had beers
Time for you to leave your room and experience life. This kind of anger will give you a heart attack.
It's fun to alter your state of mind now and then, even if it's to an inhibited state. In moderation, it's not going to do you any more long term harm than the anger you feel while reading this thread.
Ask me how i know the only fun and really down to earth people you know (and maybe even cosider calling your friends) ALL secretly make fun of you when you are not around. I'm sure you are "that guy" all of us who have a passion for living and enjoying life only befriended out of pitty and empathy. You simply do not understand social concepts. There is much more to enjoy in life than perusing anonymous image boards.
>You simply do not understand social concepts. There is much more to enjoy in life than perusing anonymous image boards.
>there is much more to enjoy in life than what I'm currently doing
we know anon. Do you?
>I'd say that falling for intoxication shows a bigger lack of self control, as opposed to resisting the temptation.
They both do. If you can't enjoy any alcohol without losing yourself to it, then that's weakness. Granted, if you know you have that weakness, it is better to abstain completely.
don't get salty anon. I didn't plan for that to seem so harsh but if you are disagreeing then tell me. Who is the person in your group i described who you all are awkwardly friends with? Think about it
My position in terms of that which is founded in science is that alcohol is harmful, even in moderate amounts.
> pic related, from a lecture
I posted all the relevant slides in the last thread on alcohol. Here is a link to the archive:
My personal opinion, however, is that people can do whatever they like, if it doesn't harm others. And taxation on alcohol likely covers the cost of health care for the damage it produces.
My only issue is that people aren't honest with themselves regarding the harmful properties of alcohol. If someone wanted to drink, and admits it's harmful, and doesn't care, then how can I complain? Pretending it isn't harmful, however, is retarded.
> The royal colleges of physicians, psychiatrists, and general practitioners have therefore advised men and women to drink less than 21 and 14 units a week, respectively, whereas the UK government has recommended no more than 4 and 3 units a day, respectively; 1 unit is 8-10 g of alcohol.
The cans of alcohol people consume regularly exceed 5 a week. Look at the risk of the first cancer listed. 5 units increases risk almost 30%. That's disregarding the minor increase in every other condition.
