>>675546347 im a functioning alcoholic and i just drink straight alcohol because the less i need to get drink to get a buzz the better. fucked up part is im a delivery driver and im always drunk but noone knows.
>>675545525 All alcohol can be smelled on your breath. The lungs are a two way street for blood transfer. When you become mildly intoxicated (for an alcoholic) you are exhaling alcohol molecules with every breath you take. These molecules can be smelled by all normal people with a normal sense of smell if they catch some of your breath in their nostrils. You are a fool, inexperienced, or misinformed if you do not know this.
>>675552869 I get high super easy, so bongs just put me in a damn coma. I used to smoke multiple blunts a day, but now I just take a few hits or so every couple days when I have a good buzz going on. Back in my younger years I could rip a whole bong pack on my own, but I just can't do it any more.
>>675553321 It's weird as hell, too, cause I'm a pretty big guy. Back in my early high school years when I was short and scrawny I'd smoke week all day, pretty much every day, and be perfectly fine. Now I'm ~6'2 and 230lbs and I can barely smoke at all.
I first started out not being able to smoke at all because I was on oxys all the time and I just felt like I couldn't breathe. I got clean, started smoking a little bit and would be high as a kite. Now I drink pretty often, which is the only time I ever feel like smoking, and 2 hits off a bowl or 4-5 from a joint have me feeling like it's the first time I ever smoked again.
To be honest, it's actually pretty nice getting high so easily. I barely smoke so I never really pitch in with my friends, which means 90% of the weed I buy goes straight to me. A quarter lasts me fucking forever
Straight seagrams vo because I didn't pre plan my stash. Started off the night with 3 highland park 18 yr and it's too shitty out already to hit the liquor store. Feels bad man, but VO isn't that bad for a shelf whiskey.
>>675554310 >miss being 22 and being able to drink myself to death...
You pretty much described me to a Tee, lol. My job is pretty extensive physical labor, and I only work with 2 other people. One smokes a ton of weed, and the other just drinks a ton of beer. I do a bit of drinking, a little smoke, go to bed 5 hours before I have to get up for work and I'm 100% functional while the other two guys are at 70% max every day.
I honestly don't understand how because I feel like I get the most fucked up, most days of the week. Then again I've been working hard pretty much my whole life so I'm probably used to it
>>675555147 This. I drink a lot of liquor and I can even smell it coming off of myself most of the time.
Anybody who says the smell of any liquor is less than beer is a fucking idiot. I've gone to work/concerts/social gatherings/family's houses after taking a few shots of whiskey or vodka, and that smell is straight ingrained into you. Brushing your teeth and putting gum in really doesn't even help most of the time, like with beer.
I almost got fired from my job before because I walked in reeking of vodka. I showered, brushed my teeth, used mouth wash and ate breakfast. It was still all anybody could smell apparently
one of my favs to get shitfaced on a budget without resorting to some nasty ass cheap liquor is 32's of bud ice with some orange juice. ghetto ass mimosa/brass monkey whatever but it gets the job done nice and its not that bad at all
>>675556841 Anybody who drinks liquor knows that there's really nothing to do to mask the smell on your breath either, though. Maybe if you're drinking fruity smelling mixed drinks, but shooting any sort of liquor is going to leave a distinct smell coming off of your breath for a long time. That was my point, really
>>675545060 Finally a thread I can relate to. "Beams 8 Star" Bet you fags never had this cheap 3 dollar gasoline whiskey before. Washing it down with Budweiser and peanuts. Go ahead, go to your liquor store and ask for "beams 8 star" (not jim beams mind you, this aint jim beam whiskey) Its a blended half whiskey half gasoline that just barely makes the Food and Drug minimums
Don't let this turn into a get thread. This is honestly one of the most civil drinking threads I've seen in a while. Aka it hasn't turned into a pissing contest on who drinks the most retarded, abstract beers and spirits
>let the quads of truth drive you to true, cheap alcoholism
>>675545060 I'm on my 10th day of not drinking, but no worries, I don't do this often but when I do it's always short lived. Other than a few brief interruptions I've been at it pretty hard for about 15 years. Mostly a beer guy, but I like gin or tequila or a good bourbon sometimes too. Pic related, recently discovered that shit. Very good and pretty reasonably priced.
working my way through a 26 of rye. question for everyone >bad heartburn for 2 weeks off and on throughout the day >go on a bender last week >wake up after about 4 hours of sleep and about 500 ml of water and a 60 spread between 36 hours >have coffee and 6 inch assorted subway sandwich >take Tylenol extra strength >halfway through coffee h get sudden urge to shit >in stall pulling pants down and throw up after everything is out I puke again except it's cherry red blood
its been over a week an no more blood, i had a blood test 2 weeks prior to this event a d my levels were slightly elevated but okay. bit freaked out and didn't go to the hospital because I read online Tylenol can sometimes do that and I suspect I have an ulcer as ive had an ulcer not from alcohol before and it maybe popped
>>675558983 >Not a huge bourbon fan. I actually totally feel you. I had a bad experience with Jack as a teenager and was put off of whiskey for a very long time. I still can't even stand the smell of Jack. I think most of us have that one alcohol we can't fuck with anymore. I only recently started warming back up to it. I guess maybe I wouldn't recommend you go out of your way to buy a bottle of Buffalo Trace, but if you see it at a bar or otherwise have a chance to try a taste, you might surprise yourself.
>>675558529 they are man, and I hate hairy balls. I got chest hair, back hair, lost of asshole hair, Hair around and ON my dick. 2 inch long nose hair. My name is Harry (im not shitting you dude, my name is Harry, not Howard, Not Henry, Harry) And I am the Hariest motherfucker I know. I'm also the only guy who can stomach this Gasoline cheap ass blended whiskey. If I dont drink 8 Star I drink T.W. Samuels. I also think I got an ulcer. I feel all chewed up inside. Best way to describe it.
>>675558725 I am a hardcore alcoholic who is going through similar throws. Fire hearburn, No fucking kidding absolute FIRE HEARTBURN. Regular benders. Drink the cheapest whiskey available. Cut it out bro. Best thing that helped me was "Sleepy Time Extra" Tea. You will have bad withdrawals, maybe need to taper yourself down. But for the difficult sleep and anxiety ( YOU will have that coming off the sauce) Drink "Sleepy time Extra Tea" Its gotta be the "Extra" Only the Extra has "Valerian Root" Will chill you out slow your hearbeat, and make you sleepy time. Best luck brother. Alcohol is a bitch.
>>675560793 thanks I'll check out the tea. >>675560361 I tried, I've tried AA, counseling, so I go to my family doc and ask for some physciatric help or a therapist referral anything to solve the underlying issues that caused me to start drinking and know what he said? Go to AA. fucker has a PhD and told me the same fucking thing Google does. I don't believe in the ideology and I don't wanna listen to a bunch of my future selves recant shitty events in their lives. You can't help alcoholics they say so I'm going to taper off and go cold turkey and hope the hand shaking stops
>>675561099 cool dubs, and I'm drinking my usual 8 Star chased with budweiser. Yeah I feel like I'm gonna die before 40. But I dont have anyone who will help. Sure I could call one of those help numbers, but I'd have a recored of alcoholism the second I do. I feel chewed up inside. But the sauce kills the pain. Only pain I feel is when I got a few hours without a sip. If you (You man, the guy who just asked, not the anon guy, but you personal and real life) If you ask me... stay away from the booze. I'm only 28. Havent even been drinking that long. But I feel all torn up.
Fair enough. In the same boat as you except I'm pretty much in fuck it mode now. I've read about about how LSD can somehow instantly cure alcohol addiction, I'm curious if anyone has any insight into that.
>>675561966 i'm 28 too and have been drinking regularly since high school. i have a family history of alcoholics and all of that shit. i'm on and off with it. i really only think about getting fucked up at night and can go days without drinking but for the past month or so ive been drinking pretty consistently. i have a job that requires me to be sober for two nights a week at least, so that keeps me in check. i know the struggle but i dont feel that i have it as bad as most
>>675561762 No sweat brah, Its a pale blue box with a pic of a bear in pajamas. I dont drink as much as I used to (Could drink 2 pints of that 8 star shit and be sober next morning). But I still drink. I'm being better tho. Just go all day telling yourself you dont need to drink but you can have a night cap. Instead of a night cap brew 2 bags of "Sleepy Time Extra" twice as long as it says to. Sip it up. Relax, You will feel fine. Its my best booze remedy and I consider myself a seasoned alcoholic. God speed bro. I know first hand alcohol is a fiery bitch.
>>675562603 There's anecdotal evidence, but I think that's all. Worth a shot though, if you can find real LSD anymore. I used to do it all the time when I was in my teens and early 20's but I'm 35 now so it's been a little while.
>>675562755 nice dubs bro, I'm the most seasoned alcoholic here. Take a little piece of advice. You have a job, you dont go to work drunk, But you may very well be the kind of guy who is drunk all hours except for working hours. I was that guy too. Lay off the sauce for a while. You will have anxiety and heart palpitations. Drink some Sleepy Time Extra Tea. Is available in pretty much all supermarkets. "Valerian Root" Thats what you're looking for. Will slow that heart rate, calm the anxiety, and slow down the tremors. God speed bro. I' been there, I'm still there, take a tiny bit of advice from a hardcore alco.
>>675564089 > sipping booze Some got nothing, but wish they could!
Earlier in the thread there was a talk about things you had a bad experience with and can't warm back up to it... I had that with long islands. I have 45-60 dollar bottles in my freezer for them, but haven't touched em more than twice in the last year.
>>675547916 Try a 10% man, but if you're only drinking three 8.1%, you might be a pussy, or at least not so stuck in alcohol that you can't easily quit. >>675549576 And absolutely right. All alcohol can be smelled by a non drinker. Don't be stupid and claim otherwise. Just because you have a shitty job where no one cares, doesn't mean they can't smell it.
>>675564882 ps what kind of welder are you? a.D if u don't mind me asking, pay, hours, country? I'm an auto apprentice and we have to do basic braze so butt joint, overlap, form a T, use filler rod or not just the basics but fuck I loved it. my only experience with MIG was fixing shopping carts at my old store/shop like replacing castor wheels and broken joints bUT i still enjoyed it
>>675564882 >>675566152 Different fag here. My problem isn't acting drunk in the morning, it's smelling like alcohol in the morning. It's not on my breath, it's just coming out of my pores. But it's gotten me into a couple of uncomfortable and almost dangerous conversations with upper management. If I don't get 7-8 hours I run that risk. Fortunately these days I'm at another company and my boss lives in another state. I'm sure some of my people have noticed it but I treat them well and get the feeling I'm pretty well liked. None of them has ever thrown me under the bus so far, at least.
>>675565355 This, I try to deny it all the time, no matter how much I shower, no matter how often I brush my teeth. Non alkies can always tell when I have been drinking. Its fucking embarrassing. I posted some of the earlier responses. I am not shitting you when I say "Sleepy Time Extra" Tea has helped me come off the sauce. You get them tremors? Then anxious doomsday feels? Those heart palpitations that make you wanna call 911? (but you dont call do you fag? you never will. me either. I felt like I was dying, but I lived) Drink a 'Sleepy Time Extra with Valerian Root. Best thing you will ever do for yourself. It will calm that heart rate, give you a few hours of sleep. and Chill your tremors. Youll be ok alco anon friends. Take my advice if nothing else. Ive been on the sauce pretty bad.
>>675566622 >savage dubs trip dubs youre playing with fire bro if you're doing that on a regular basis. they may be nice and treat you well but they also could be talking about you behind your back labeling you as the company drunk. we have a guy like that at work, nice guy, well liked. he was sober for a year. he fell hard off the wagon a few weeks ago and now everybody knows it and he's getting a bad rep again
>>675567116 They don't work in the office with me. They only stop by if they need something. Other than that they're in the field. They also barely know each other for that same reason. But yes it has crossed my mind anyway.
>>675567371 i see. theres a pretty big promotion coming up and the guy i'm talking about was first in line depending on if he got a certain certificate by then. he has cancelled his exam twice and it's looking like he wont get the cert in time because he rather get shitfaced on his days off
>>675566622 been there done that, when I was a tire installer my old service manager loved me because I busted my ass 24/7 then went home and drank for 5 hours, passed out and repeated it. I never stopped cleaning, maintaining equipment, basically finding shit to do when there was no work. so they loved me but...Now I was sober, I hadn't had a drink in more than 24 hours. One day I backed a bmw into a trailer hitch by accident because I thought I was in 1st and asshole in his lifted f 150 backed into with 1 inch of the beamer. $2000 for a new bumper and HR fired me with my service manager beside her. My manager never looked me in the eye because she couldn't help me but 6 months later I visited. Shops a shit hole, my replacement stole one of the department managers phone, got arrested in the shop in front of everyone, most techs left and Im happy they're suffering >basically they can ad will turn on you if you give them a reason
>>675566130 $18/hr doing shitty construction work in FL, all stick welding. Used to do MIG shit at a mechanic shop I worked at, but they wanted to pay me peanuts and the bosses were all total assholes. Wish I'd learned TIG so I could sit in an air conditioned shop all day doing fabrication.
>>675568013 Thing is, I'm not actually drunk anymore, but the metabolites still ooze out constantly and make me smell like it. And perception is reality in the eyes of the perceiver. Or the nose, as it were.
>>675568169 that feel when you check the compressor and see your own handwritten note dating the last time the compressor fikter and oil level was checked >6 months and 3 days so much for preventative maintenance
>>675568922 I know it was just good to see that they really didn't know how good it was until it was gone despite my personal issues. My dream now is too get a position at the porsche dealer down the road and roll up in a 911 during a road test just to say hi.
>>675568957 I'm starting to feel like it's a thing among those who do actual fucking work. Like, I spend 8 hours a day lifting steel bar stock and melting it together. You spend your day fixing peoples cars that they fuck up. We gotta do fucking something to unwind.
I'm 38, been drinking whiskey for 20 years, everyday for at least 15 years. I'm completely hooked but i don't seem to have a real problem with it. yea I feel like shit sometimes but I have a job and no DUI's and shit. its not so bad if you get a grip on it and don't chug it all day and all night
I should have named this thread "Working class /b/ that also drinks" because I feel like we're all functioning members of society, even if we get drunk every night. None of us are NEETs that put expensive bottles of liquor on daddy's credit card and that makes me feel good.
>>675566622 See, that's weird. I used to have to show up at any fucked up time for my job. It wasn't just around coworkers, but around 10 levels of 3rd party customers also. I'd talk to some of the guys I trusted most they might say they noticed, but no one else ever said shit, supervisor included. Not sure now why it never became an issue. To my credit I was pretty good at timing it out.
friction welding? but then again if I was a white collar who sat behind a desk staring at spreadsheets on a PC I'd slam pencil through my ear. I can do it but I like to learn about cars so that's why I'm where I am. now I just wish I had the math skills to become an automotive engineer so I can design stuff that's actually logically and easy to wrench on because obviously no engineer has ever used a fucking screw driver >pic related
>>675570575 my plan tonight was to get shit faced. went to the bar and shot pool. came home and poured myself a huge vodka drink and came on 4chan. that was two hours ago and i just finished my drink. if anything, this thread kept me from getting as fucked up as i originally planned
>>675569827 see >>675570874 forgot the post >>675570575 not totally true if you go to an AA meeting you'll see the redneck next to the guy in a $2000 suit. Alcohol is a succubus and targets all kinds of people. Those who ate high educated usually have the good sense to avoid this literal poison but one of my old counselors had a patient who was a judge in appeals court if I recall correctly and despite having a degree in law and 15 years plus on the bench they dealt with the stress of their job by drinking
>>675570874 Honestly, I was in college for Mechanical Engineering but the amount of paperwork I had to do made me want to kill myself. Also, if someone gets hurt or dies when a structure collapses, it comes back on the engineers and not the construction crew, so I probably avoided a few lawsuits. Also, fuck the math classes you have to take for engineering. Everything post-calculus was absolutely useless.
