>>743377708 Yeah it sounds like you just have really bad general anxiety. I used to work as an assistant in a doctor's office and I've seen so many people who think they're dying, their body is shutting down or are dependent on alcohol. You really aren't experiencing withdrawals and believe me, you'd know if you were.
Take some Vitamin B complex and I promise you will feel better. It's a start but you still need to try to drink less and less over time. Don't quit cold turkey.
I drink about 3 beers per evening, but it's more like controlled drinking... I drink every day, but I just try to drink less and less and less... there were times in which I drank about half a bottle of vodka per day.
>>743378324 Anon are you drinking shit straight or something? No shit you're going to feel bad if you drink anything 100 proof straight. I did that shit for a couple of years and even touching my lips to the bottle in the morning would make me throw up every morning. Are you drinking straight out of the bottle?
>>743378381 >15 beers Why not just drink less of something harder at this point? You must be pissing like every 10 seconds and your stomach is getting fucked up. And that's not even that much alcohol overall, you're just retarded.
I used to go to the bar every single day from 2011-2015. I was there from open to close and I honestly don't want to know how much money I wasted. Then, I said fuck the bar scene and started going to state stores. I drink at home and lurk now.
It's just not worth it. All the drama that comes with being a bar regular, putting up with drunk women and their ADD, risking public intoxication charges every night, etc.
My wake up call was when I woke up in an abandoned warehouse covered in my own feces. I took a shit on the floor and rolled around on it in my sleep. I had to walk 2 miles home in the cold covered in feces while people driving by stared at me.
I have no ambition to get wasted anymore. I drink most of the day just enough to get a slight buzz so I can function better and that's it. I don't know how I even survived some nights. Not just from the alcohol intake but some of the shitty areas I ended up in including no-whitey land.
Speaking of, I've been drinking liquor for a couple years now and beer doesn't seem to do it for me anymore. Anyone else have this problem? I had 6 Bud Light Platinums yesterday and it didn't really do anything. I'm too used to the high proof liquor.
I reduced my amount. Half year ago almost drank every second day a bottle of hard liquer and a beer from the way back from the supermarket. Now half a bottle every 2nd day. Vodka mostly. Depends what is most cheapest. Sometimes sparkly wine. I drink sparkly wine fast to get drunk fast. But often get sober when i go to bed. So win win. And for 2 € cheap as fuck.
I'm only 20 and live in America so getting alcohol isn't the easiest I try to get at least a handle of tequila or at least a couple 40s of hurricane per week with the help of my cousin which either way only lasts me a week either a 40 a day or a handle for the week started getting into mixing the hurricane with jose cuervo silver it's surprisingly super good and it's the best of both
Was an alcohol abuser for years. Bordered on full-blown alcoholism. I quit a year ago (29 now.) Now I only drink every few months on special occasions and I rarely get wasted when I do.
I had to find something to occupy my mind because when I would be alone with my thoughts I would start thinking about every bad thing I'd ever done and every mistake I'd ever made and booze was the only thing that silenced those thoughts. So I replaced drinking with playing music. 4 hours a day of guitar. Now I'm pretty good at it and it's opened up a lot of new social opportunities.
Tl:dr find a productive hobby and let it consume you instead of the booze
A lot of you don't seem that bad to be honest. I don't recommend you drink that much but when I worked as a doctor's assistant, I met people who drank liters of liquor every single day. I met a 60+ year old man who had been drinking for several decades and could put down nearly several liters a day because it's all he did and he chugged it constantly. He even had a flask in the doctor's office, would show up hammered. He stopped showing up to visits but he's still alive as far as I know (somehow).
I use to chug vodka almost every night, and wake up the next morning for work. Id just pour a general amount around 5 to 8 ozs in a solo cup, and then drink later through the night. I'm only 19 but this one liquor store in the niggy land never carde so I always went there.
My favorite was svedka, id get a 1.75L for $20 and it was some of the smoothest for the price in my area. I had tried smirnoff, but that was too strong to chug comfortably, I would still be able to get it down, but it'd leave me drooling.
I still drink kinda heavy and pretty regularly, but not every day, probably 3 or 5 times a week, and I'll usually drink half a fifth or more. Sometimes I'll get a 6 pack and run through that after some shots.
im in the process of trying to quit. I used to drink Graves (190 proff) everyday, went down to vodka but i started puking blood so now im only drinking beer and wine. Im also going to a substance abuse program three times a week
Yeah, I'm American, I know alchies so bad that they have been banned from all the liquor stores. You know you are bad when you show your face in a store and the pajeet owners starts shouting "out". They usually have to get others to buy for them. I didn't realize you were under 21
>>743380733 well yea everyone thought i was crazy being 115 lb girl drinking that shit everyday and my group also deals with mental illnesses too so its less bullshit than other programs ive heard about
>Woke up today >Chest felt like it was burning bad after some vodka and four loco >Drank a four loco last night and it gave me bad heartburn >Lay down on the floor >Heart's beating out of my chest >My arms and legs feel weak >Every tiny bodily sensation sends my body and mind into a panic >Start sipping on vodka >It goes away 20 minutes later
This is my life now. Every fucking day. There's no AA program around this stupid town of 10k people. I have to be drunk every second I'm awake or my body feels like it's going to war with itself.
In Los Angeles, the police threaten the liquor stores (and 7-11) with revoking their liquor license, so they don't have any choice. This lady I used to hang with was hooked on steel reserve. When she said, "I'm thirsty" it mean getting some. She'd walk in, show her face and the clerks would start shouting for her to get out. This happened in stores from Santa Monica all the way to West Hollywood, it was funny.
I saw it the other day in Northern California, this homeless guy came in stood in line, got all the way up and the clerk says, I can't sell this to you.
>>743381150 >There's no AA program around this stupid town of 10k people I remember you from a thread a few days ago. Like we were trying to tell you last time, that town is totally big enough to have an AA meeting somewhere.
shit, I tried a grape four loko on a hot summer day outside a 7-11, that shit tasted like Kool aid. So I go in and get another, chug it down, man I started puking grape vomit. For two fucking days, I wanted to kill myself.
>>743381476 I used to drink two at night so I could sleep but now they just give me heartburn. I tried watermelon and some black cherry flavor and it made my throat/chest burn like crazy. It made me vomit probably an entire day's worth of drinks and food.
>>743381386 Imagine having a nightmare, while being awake. A horror movie that you can't escape. Bloody visions of mutilated bodies, demons, parasites and cancer tumors. Then at very rare occasions there are tremendously divine hallucinations. Like Gandalf fighting evil wizard on a mile high tower or an erupting supervolcano.
>>743381386 Oh I've had hallucinations from those. I was sitting at my computer desk and I saw a vision of a girl standing in front of my office door laughing and stabbing herself in the face. I saw a clown riding a bike running towards me then disappearing a few feet in front of me. You fucking know if you're suffering from a DT. I saw some of the scariest shit that no horror movie could produce and they're so real. They're not like when you go two days without sleep and see faces in your eyelids when you close your eyes.
They seem very very real. I heard people screaming my name and talking to me. I've had a couple of them and I used to write down what I saw. I cannot stress enough how real they feel and it's like they're actually there. It was always people being murdered or doing really weird shit to themselves. That's not the worst part of DTs though.
The worst part is when your body goes into panic mode, your heart beats like it's going 500 beats a minute, your heart feels like a feather, you can't breathe and you can't think straight. You get so confused that you can't even dial 911 or find your phone, you start having random thoughts that make no sense and you can't comprehend.
An alcoholic and drunks are different. Some people drink because they don't want to stop and they enjoy it. Alcoholics are people who can't stop. They feel dependent on alcohol and cannot function without it.
Drunks could stop drinking and feel just fine. Alcoholics can't.
i used to drink a lot ,i was like everyday something light alone or going out 3 days straight hammered,then just started getting annoyed byt the situation,got really fat etc so started working out and only drink 1 day per week,that worked out fine
>>743376862 I drink 1 - 4 times per year and I can only drink one night. I puke if I even think about alcohol the next day. But when I drink, I drink a lot. Beer, drinks, shots of vodka and whiskey, glasses of cognag, absinthe. Completely blacking out every time. Spending 200 - 1000 € per night.
>>743382234 the withdrawal causes seizures? I used to have epilepsy before getting cured, and if I drank alcohol socially I'd sometimes get seizures the next day from the withdrawal but ofc I was already prone to seizures anyway
every night unless i feel sick from the night before >32 oz beer, i like corona og >4 miniatures of 100 proof cinnamon or peach liqueur >if i start too early i'll bribe my gf with icecream from baskin robins to take me into town for more
>>743382540 >>743382498 There is no good medical definition of an alcoholic. There are guidelines and things to look for but in the end it depends on a variety of factors, you need to judge it on a case by case basis I think.
This is what I'm saying. No matter the level of dependence, being dependent on something in any way is an addiction. So even if it's "oh I'm only drink coz I'm bored at home" or "oh it's just to help me sleep", its still addiction. And addiction to alcohol is what defines an alcoholic
What do you mean, cheaper? get you drunk faster? I just know a bunch of hardcore types and they all drink steel reserve. I tried it and I think they suck, if I was still drinking, I would drink natural ice or bud ice
>>743383357 Different fag here. I used to drink the shit out of Icehouse for a long time, but any other ice beer was complete ass to me. When I was first drinking heavily it was the Beast, but I never could enjoy Beast Ice. Rainier is the patrician's choice of swill beer, but only available in the northwest as far as I'm aware.
>>743383357 Well they are both the same price or maybe not I haven't really gotten Steelies since I found hurricanes around here you can get 25 oz tall cans of them for 99 cents and alcohol content. 8.1% or what ever just hurricanes taste so much better than the Steelies
>>743382454 >>743382296 I used to be a drunk, or so I thought. Then I tried quitting and found it surprisingly hard. Managed about 18 months sober before touching alcohol again. Now I only drink on weekends, but I anything from 6-20 beers (0.5L each, ca 5%) starting friday and usually ending sometime late saturday. Sunday is now recovery day, preparing for work on monday.
>>743384151 People just hate admitting they're alcoholics because of the strong stigma against it. It's really unfortunate tbh. I would never try to guilt trip someone over how much they drink but I just think people should be self-aware. It sounds like you're doing okay now and I'm glad for that.
A pint of whisky and 2 40's a day for a year and half Im 20 and had severe WD's 6 months ago after going cold turkey and almost died because of it (DT's and a Seizure) Sober now for 6months. Got hypoglycemia now and i can't smoke weed or drink alcohol And i grow
>>743385056 But people often brag about how much dope they've done. I for myself drank ~1000 bottles of 80 proof, smoked nearly six pounds of weed and also drank the equivalent of several (7?) bathtubs full of beer.
I used to drink about 40 beers a week, most of them on fridays and saturdays. Got some help and was sober for about six months. Now I'm on about ten a week but they want me to sober up completely again.
>>743376862 only really started a few months ago, but i drink at least 5 swigs of vodka and 3 beers every night. I don't day drink though, so all that goes down within a few hours. only drink cheap beer (around 4.5-6% usually) and 80 proof bottom shelf vodka because i don't have the income for the fancy shit
>>743384802 >be 20 y/o me (2015) >go to beach with friends >drink half gallon of strawberry shit vodka cause liq fiend >totheface.wav >go back to house >get 12 pack to get extra toasty for night life feels >chug 6 >get ready to destroy internal organs at club space >only pussies don't drink and drive to club >go to gf house >bitches taking too long to get ready >decide to leave >blackout moment I leave neightborhood >wrap car around tree >medivac to hospital >flatline on the way >wake up next day on that sweet sweet morphine drip >6 broken ribs, L1-L3 slightly fractured, hip completely shattered >go to court after year for accident >DUI conviction >still drink like nicholas cage in leaving las vegas >get rekd in november 2016 >smoke some of the giggly bush >violate probo >rehab for 3 months >leave rehab >see judge >shortens 18 month sentence to 12 month >fuckingwinrar.webm Still don't drink
>>743386256 Nigga just get on Okcupid or Tinder or some shit and find a chick who wants to drink with you. She doesn't have to be hot. Remember, you're the 27 year old KV here, not her. Just find someone chill and fun to hang out with and fuck her.
I avg about 12 a day for the past few years. It has set into me so hard that it is compulsive. I am become spirit. I don't want to but my body has become accustomed to this state of mind. Even though I feel as though I am coming closer to death every morning. Even though I absolutely love the feeling of not waking up hung over, and the clear-headedness even more.
The train of thought is as this "oh, well you're not shooting up or slamming rails anymore. but beer is okay because it is a "classic American past time, it's okay."
Every tomorrow is a tomorrow in which I will not drink. I will only have 1 to dullen the edge of yesterday.
I lucked into a medical research program, they give you placebo/meds for 8 weeks then give you iv of alchol til .08. Then reverse to meds/placebo for another eight weeks, iv again. It was a Japanese pill and I'll tell you, I don't have any afinity for alchol or gambling, I can go into the stores and see it, or by a casino and have no feels at all for it. I understand that they are going to try it for meth, also.
>>743376862 Skimmed through the thread and was surprised to see that there aren't that many more 'harder' alcoholics. I drank between a bottle of vodka a day minimum. sometimes 2 bottles and a bit for 7 years until I started projectile vomiting blood turning yellow. Almost died of liver failure. Was definitely a life changing experience.
A bottle of wine per day (anything cheap), A few cans of cider sometimes (orchard thieves), 2 or 3 shots of whiskey at night and some mornings (bushmills, black bush or regular). I never go anywhere without the flask my mother got me
>>743387371 I would usually start about 6:00 after work and finish about 10:00 or so and go into work. I'd get worse on weekends.
I don't miss the hangovers. No headaches,just zero energy. Close the curtains, do mindless shit like MMO's and movies.
The one thing I noticed in my time being sober is i'm exhausted all the time. Before I was getting by on 5-6 hours of sleep a day. Now i'm sleeping 10-12 hours. I go to bed at old people times and wake up at 5.
>>743387832 I have massive anxiety too, but I'm afraid of taking meds for it. I don't know why exactly. I think they'll rewire my brain or something. How are they working for you? I'm starting to think I drink too much, and should explore other options. >inb4 smoke weed I smoke weed too.
Weed made it worse for me, I'm taking 100mg of Desvenlafaxine and I feel great, never on edge and angry like I used to be. Decided to give it a try after I almost beat my wife, I'm a mean drunk. Give it a try man good luck
