Ussually once weekly.
I drink 2-3 evenings a week. But sometimes I drink for the right reasons; sometimes I drink because I want to numb something a bit. But I'm so paranoid about becoming dependent on alcohol that I never drink more than 2 drinks in a day.
I used to drink about 5 times per week, now I don't drink
very rarely.. none at the moment tho.
Today I'm gonna try not to. Early doors though.
Four times a week.
One heavy bout about once every three weeks.
New years eve champagne , a whiskey sip once in awhile over a card game with friends, the occasional party but thats rare.
last time i drank was november 22nd i dont want to drink anymore
Im drinking right now.....!!!!
Every night... I can't sleep without it. The last night I went without drinking was New Year's Eve, ironically. :/
90% of the time I post of here I'm at least half drunk... But I'm completely sober right now. It's early.
I used to drink or do some drug most days of the week. I did drink to just pass out too at night. I thought it was helping me, but in the end now, I know that it's just a coping mechanism that isn't useful for me anymore.
Sure there are plenty of times that I don't to feel and I just want to numb out, but for me, I think to heal, I have to deal with my feelings, no matter how painful. I no longer drink, although not by choice at first. I started having gallbladder problems and when I drank, even one drink, I would throw up. So I had to stop drinking, now I'm glad I did.
It can be an easy fix, but be careful, especially if you are one meds or driving.
Maybe try another day without drinking and see how it is. I don't know.
Be well and do something nice for yourself today (that doesn't include drinking maybe???) :blink::laugh::wink:
Very rare only when going out clubbing or parties..
Not often enough. I ran out but don't have the energy to get more.
(I changed my mind about commenting on this)
Only on occasion. Like Christmas, New Year, the freshers' party at Uni (good times :tongue: )
I made the mistake of setting the bar too high/drunk, LOL I mean there are certain situations where I started out drinking to be able to handle the situation and now every time I'm in that situation I do horribly unless I'm drinking
Such as playing with my band. I can't perform or practice or make new material unless I'm relaxed enough to let go of fears that I'm not going to do well... andwhen I forget to drink or decide to skip it I always embarrass myself and let down the group.
Probably about 2-3x a week but when I do I drink 3-5 at a time.,
blah blah, I wish I wasn't so nervous and self-conscious and socially awkward but it's a trade-off- I really really really want to make music so I just hope I don't turn out to be a raging alcoholic.
I don't drink...I gave it up about six years ago.
about every 4-5 days..but when i do i drink loads......
