Is it possible to drink alone, miday, healthily? I mean there is a very negative stigma surrounding doing this, but I'm home all day, and get really relaxed and cozy with a nice buzz, why shouldn't I enjoy a couple drinks?

Not if you're underage.
>>
>>18604782
Possible, yes, but if you're drinking alone it can be very easy for it to become habitual, or to lose track of your consumption. And that can be dangerous.
>>
>>18604782
Everything in moderation desu.

If it's your day off than do whatever the fuck you want, it's 5pm somewhere in the British Empire anyway. If you're some NEET who just sits around all the time than daydrinking is just going to fuck your life up even more.
>>
>>18604782
It depends if you're an alcoholic. I read somewhere that those people who like to get completely wasted are the way they are because they get a high off of getting drunker. Not being buzzed the actual process of turning up. I don't get that even remotely so I consider myself ok for day drinking.

because it easily turns to a very bad habit

Oh i am laffin

OP here, how is this different than smoking weed I always wondered. Like I feel way better drunk than I do high, yet toking alone is not as frowned upon
>>
>>18604836
Because alcohol is a social drug. It's also dinner to be drink with others.
>>
>>18604782
Who is going to judge you if you're doing it privately?
>>
>>18604840
maybe its just me, but I feel very happy and relaxed drunk, often times the negative stigma is accompanied by depression and anger
>>
>>18604782
Water, juice and even soda is fine to drink during the day. Just stay away from alcohol.
>>
Here in Spain it's not really uncommon for someone to have a beer or 2 with their lunch and then go back to work. If you feel ok with it then I don't really see any problem. Of course, it would be "healthier" to have a glass of water but if your drinking in general is kept to a moderate level it's unlikely to have any tagible consequences. Just be careful with that "couple of drinks"... 1 is fine, 2 is ok, you probably shouldn't exceed that

Because it inevitably leads to addiction, although maybe just a mild one. Social drinking compartmentalizes the drinking, so you can say to yourself, "The bar is the place to drink," and then avoid the bar if you want to abstain. If you're some guy who is sitting in his house full of liquor like, "damn liquor makes me really happy in itself" then an addiction is going to form more directly.

Its not likely to be as bad as people who drink to quell panic or people who get divorced and sit on the street corner to drink, but the fact you're asking for advice shows you know it's a risk on some level.

>alcohol is the same as weed
far from it. alcohol creates hyperactivity and a false sense of contentment until it wears off, leaving people tired and drained.

weed speeds up activity in the brain, leading to more interesting and vivid experiences, at the risk of triggering panic and depersonalization.

>Because it inevitably leads to addiction
Not true, it is not at all inevitable. Alcohol isn't heroin. If someone is relying on alcohol to make them feel good or be satisfactorily functional (usually in a social context) in their daily life, this can be a pathway to problems. Some people are especially prone to developing addictions this way. But simply having a drink on your own from time to time does not have to be a negative thing and shouldn't be "shamed".

I used to pretty frequently drink a beer and read a book for a while when I came home from work, it was just a nice way to relax. I've had some problems with my stomach recently that have necessitated me avoiding alcohol, this has not been difficult for me and I can't see how my after-work beer would ever have turned into a problem. Lots of people like to have a beer or a glass of wine in the evening, the vast majority don't suffer any problems because of it.

By the way I'm not really an alcohol-positive person, it causes a ridiculous amount of problems in society and in many countries (such as Ireland, where I'm from) it's basically normal for people to have incredibly unhealthy attitudes towards alcohol, but like most things it's fine in moderation.

I didn't do any shaming, and I'm just listing facts. Eating candy corn is also an addiction, and so is using /adv/.

Anyway, if a person indulges in an addictive substance (or activity) on purpose, it becomes increasingly easier for them to slip back into it indulgence. Time and time again it has been shown that a certain type of indulgence (particularly the kind people are warning OP about) only increases over time, and that abstinence from that particular kind of indulgence is the only way to avoid it's harmful effects.

Like you said, your perception of the world shows that indulgent addictions (porn, sex, alcohol, cigarettes) can be quite harmful, but you aren't ready to accept this fact on an emotional level.

Everyone needs a vice in modern society, from what I've seen. OP is just a person trying to have a decent time.

>6 beers is a borderline alchoholic
Assuming you are an average guy then if you are an alcoholic your developed tolerance would have made you switch to hard liquor.
>>

Also
>I had one drink a day, and stopping was easy
I admire your self-control, and I drink alone too, but we both understand what alcohol is in a broader context. If you started overindulging, you'd eventually have no choice but to stop, just like you did for your stomach problems - except for alcohol addiction.

OP asked why people react to drinking alone, and I told him. I never said he's a bad person, or destined to slam liters of vodka.
>>
well no, but you're gonna build a tolerance so watch out for that, it can become an addiction too ez
