    As is the tendency with depressants.

    But is there something else you want to tell us? Everything alright?

    yeah I'm alright, I'm not ever going to get 'into' drinking though..I don't see how it takes off since the comedowns are terrible..but then again thats the same with many drugs and people still take them.

    Better to try and get better naturally.

    I got to the point or drinking half a 30 pack a night by myself in the dark. I drank because I held my emotions in all day at work and the booze helped me to get a quick release of all the sadness when I got home. Id go home turn on the stereo as loud as I would go turn off all the lights and sit on the couch in the dark and drink untill my emotions exploded out of me. Then id pass out usually.

    If you drink everyday for a couple months you no longer get hungover. you just get used to it. So then you slowly lose the downside of drinking and get used to the release.

    I just have to comment on this cause its so false!!!! I'm a very heavy drinker myself and I can tell you that the hangovers never go away. But like he said, eventually you get used to the feeling and it becomes normal, you learn to adapt to it.....but its still there. And as far as losing the downside of drinking goes...........thats total bs!!!....the more you drink, the more the downside becomes apparent to you...Any real drinker could attest to this, its a living hell!

    I think the body's reaction to alcohol is a personal reaction. I've had one bad hangover in my life. I drink heavily and honestly, it makes me feel much better - short term and long term. Am I depressed after drinking? Sure, but I'm not suicidal. And that's something.

    Some people are natural drinkers. Those people, people like me, should be extra careful regarding substance abuse. But no, in my little sad world alchol is a major stress relief. Case and point - I've been suicidal for the past three weeks while sober. Got gin a day ago and am quite content.

    But if it doesn't work for you, no need to copy my own self -destructive path.

    My wife drinks - and drinks - and drinks- once she starts she cannot stop - until she passes out - there lies our problem - SHE NEVER gets a hangover and is NEVER sick

    On a good week? G&T in the morning, martinis mid day and whiskey's at night. But I binge drink so some weeks it's really heavy, other weeks it's dry and I'm miserable.

    On average: 3 Beers a week/ 1000 ml hard liquor.

    Though sometimes weeks go by where it's dry. ...Just to reiterate :laugh:. I don't want to presume that I understand what you mean, but I don't experience hang overs. No headaches, dry mouth, fevers, or chills, or nausea. My liver / pancreas has started to hurt after heavy nights but I wouldn't equate that with a hang over. Especially since alcohol also helps reduce any prostate pain I have... so... it works and doesn't. But I'm not saying I grow accustomed to the negative effects as much as my life is almost always improved through it. Though socially I may stink of it more.

    case in point. 3 beers and 1 liter bottle of liqour is like 25 drinks or so(give or take a few)

    I average about 60-70 per week. One a particularly bad week...i'll have 100.

    your drinking may be "binge" by normal standards, but its nowhere close to heavy, by alcoholic standards lol

    If you ever get up to those quantities...then it won't be fun anymore.....the "downside" will be obvious to you.

    Man don’t talk about alcohol that way! Show some respect :tongue:
    The only time I feel alive is when I’m drunk or stoned!
    Everything that happens in between is a waste of time, real world sux so alcohol allows people to be in their own world. We should be praising the magic juice.

    Hello my name is FPS and I am an alcoholic. :wink:

    I have been to enough AA meetings, and I have heard enough stories and I know of my own personal experiences that for an alcoholic, drinking doesnt do any good at all. There is a friend of mine who has been sober for 15 years. Still goes to AA meetings. Last year, he went to 10 wakes in 10 months. All of them were alcoholics. This disease is fatal. And for a guy like me diagnosed as a manic depressive, alcohol is like putting a loaded gun to my head.

    And then there comes the blackouts. I remember one morning waking up and wondering how my apartment got clean. Well I cleaned it the night before, and couldnt remember.

    And then there is the insanity of this disease. At the height of my drinking career, my wife told me on a particular day, that if I didnt stop drinking, I was going to loose them. So I did...for a week. And then I was right back out there, in full flight from reality.

    Why did I start again? Physical or mental addiction....don't really know? Why didnt I seek help then? Why didnt I go to AA then?

    But my story is typical of the alcoholic. If you really want to know more about drinking and alcoholism you should read the section titled "A Doctor's Opinion" in the AA Big book.

    And there were other things I did. things that should have killed me, hurt others, or at least landed me in jail....but for the Grace Of God, none of that happened.

    Alcohol was my best friend and worst enemy.

    And I still like to and want to drink.

    I stopped drinking around a month ago and only drank a bit since then, never more than a few sips of a drink.

    When I used to be in a bar drink a lot I would often resort to suicidal thoughts when left to myself but now can control my thoughts better. I feel so much better now and can't see how you can enjoy being drunk every single day of the week.

    I still miss my pint of lager but for me it's worth it.
