Whelp, fuck. I'm an alcoholic I think.
    #576922 - 08/06/11 01:30 PM (5 years, 4 months ago)

So I've felt like I was probably an alchy for a few years now. It started out drinking only once a month or so, then every other weekend, then every weekend, now its multiple times a week.

I have liquor and beers in my fridge non-stop now that I'm 21, and on the occasion I run out, I have more just a 15 minute walk away. I can't save money because I always end up just buying mad beer and liquor for me and my friends.

I hadn't gone a single day without at least 1-2 drinks in probably 2 months before yesterday. I've been without any alcohol for the last 2 days, and I can already tell I'm going to drink tonight. I just fucking know it.

I don't have this problem with bud. I can keep it for months on end and just smoke a little bit when I feel like it. When I drink, I make it my goal to drink until its fucking gone.

Goddamnit. :sad: Of all the dangerous "addicting" drugs I do, I've never ever felt the pull to do them like I do to drink right at this very minute.

Yes, the drinks allure is strong for sure.  Does not help that it is so widely accepted and sold everywhere and so many events are centered around it.  I have cut back significantly from where I was a year ago though. I still like getting crunk'd up though drinking martinis.

You are already in the right direction though.  The way I see if I have a problem is see if I can go a week without.

I am exactly the opposite. Alcohol is not a problem (I cant stand it) but bud sure is.

Well, since its raining I'm unable to go to the concert I was planning on going to, so I'm probably gonna drink after all.

:lol: Theres always an excuse - "oh, I'm goin to that concert, of course I'm gonna get hammered"...

A week eh? I'd like to see if I can do that.

I didn't drink for 3 days, just to see how bad my withdrawal would be, it was pretty bad even though I had benzo's, since then ive only had 1-2 beers every few days, I'd like to think I can quit entirely but stress makes me continue... You might wanna slow down now that you recognize it, I know if I had quit cold turkey for those three days I woulda been in seizure hallucination land, I was still shaky, and had terrible nightmares/ half dream states that were vivid as fuck, but not cool because they were scary, evil fucking dreams, and some brain shocks, i still don't feel right.... goddamn drink is the devils piss

Boozing............  damn that's hard one. The fucked up part is the only real advice is stop or drink less and that has never helped anyone.
Good luck dude, I rode that slippery delicious beast for about 9 years and still haven't fully tamed her. Only thing that made me cut down was going broke and wanting to spend the little money I did have on weed instead.

Weren't there any studies utilizing acid as a cure for alcoholism.

Bud, yeah. I just enjoy being high and forget the beers in my fridge.

Psychedelics would probably help...permanently. But I'm not sure I want to bombard my brain with all of that just yet. Or, ever again for that matter. :shrug: Kinda feel like I might be past that part of my youth haha.

I think people should use acid or shrooms(I per-fer shrooms) once a year to burn out the cobwebs in the brain.




Just a thought.

I think its been a full 2+ years since I tripped.

I dunno. I just know its not gonna go well so I've been avoiding it. A lottttttt of bullshit in these past 2 years went down, and I'd rather not have to deal with it. I know that sounds horrible, but I'm just not ready.

Edit: Wait, fuck no. Thats not right at all. I've done DMT and some mescaline and probably a bunch of other shit lol. Wtf am I thinking.

"Oh whiskey you're the devil, you're leadin' me astray..."

I too know how you feel, man. Like everyone says there are really only two ways to go about it: become a functional alcoholic (ie come up with some sort of rule set under which you can drink responsibly) or just don't drink, which almost never works. Personally I've had to give up bourbon and scotch because I just love it too much - I don't think I've ever had just one glass of bourbon but I can make and drink just one gin & tonic or white russian pretty easily (all the extra fat in the white russians helps the alcohol absorb a little slower too). For awhile I tried never drinking alone but that never sticks, I always end up wanting a cocktail or a glass of wine with dinner, I just try not to have one every night.

The way I deal with drinking socially without getting so plastered that I go into full-out boozing is to just tell my friends "No thanks, I'm a light-weight these days" when they offer to put in a round (ya know, unless I'm not actually buzzed yet :wink: ). Slight bruise to the ego but I'd rather be a light-weight than "that guy".

Alternately you could do what my brother does and get a good enough job that you can actually afford to drink like a fish all the time and just be uber-healthy with the rest of your life to try to even it out :lol:

Edit: Totally agree on the cathartic use of psychedelics. If you don't feel like you can handle tripping perhaps you're taking too much? I'm usually ALL SET on a gram and a half of shrooms.
