Kicking the shitmonkey.
    #599623 - 12/04/11 10:37 AM (5 years, 5 days ago)

:lahey:

This time I'm serious boys. No more until the new year. Only greenery for me for the rest of the month. I can't keep drinking like this.

So do you guys have any tips? I know I've asked before, but I'm asking again...aside from "just quit" (which is the only REAL advice), whatcha think guys? I don't really have any alcohol sitting around the house, I drank everything that was sitting around.

I'm sick of spending so much money on booze.

Find things to occupy yourself other than sitting around at home otherwise you'll just feel like drinking. Hang out with some friends that aren't drinking buddies. Use your new found powers of sobriety to read that really good book you've been putting off.

While keeping in mind that psychedelic trips are FRACTAL's advice for everything from sobriety to cancer treatment, to erectile dysfunction. :lol:

:lol: You got me, but there is some evidence to back up that claim. I think they had a 70% success rate with alcoholics and LSD back in the 50's and 60's.

I've contemplated my alcoholism on acid more times than I can count. Still drink.

Ya I constantly tell myself I'm gonna quit.

I'm pretty sure that supplementing my drinking with more THC is the thing thats gonna do it for me :lol:

Since I started working, I don't drink on week nights anymore, but I go hard on the weekends. Generally only 1 day of the weekend though...I just have to further reduce it.

Its just real tough when its all my friends are doing. I don't think I even have any friends that I don't drink with. Sad to say, but true. I don't know a single person who doesn't drink.

I don't want to cut it out completely. Probably just holidaze and stuff.

Good advice. Stay occupied. Pick up a new hobby or 2, or dive more into a current hobby (except drinking). I'd tell your friends that you are trying to abstain until the new year so they don't inadvertently pressure you.

Ya, I'm sure they'll understand if I just tell them. But going to parties with them will be tough not to drink haha.

I guess more than anything, I'd like to be able to pick up a good buzz and just ride it out rather than getting blackout drunk every time I drink. It'd be nice to be able to stop at 6 beers.

Maybe I can just pick up a sixer of some good beer and just nurse them all night.

Is a 16 year old guy having sex w/a 16 year old girl a pedophile?
If not, then how is a 30 year old considered a pedophile for doing the same thing?
I think y'all need to look up the definition for pedophile.

I've been drinking like a fucking fish for like 6 years, maybe more.

I find when I only have 3 or so beers I just am wishing I had more because it seems like a waste to only get a tiny buzz. Thats probably what makes me an alchy lol.

True, and its been repeated since.  Switzerland has never stopped studying it.  They use it to help with all kinds of things from eating disorders to sexual relationship enhancement.


That said it is done in clinical settings with real psychologists and specialists.  They are not just dosing people, lighting incense, and cranking up the tunes.

I am not a cannabis grower.  I find the cannabis growers to be the most open to experimenting and sharing out of all of the different botany groups I enjoy.  I frequently use the suggestions that I find to apply to own organic gardening and food production.

I could write pages of advice but not without knowing everything about you, so that is useless.
What I will say is this though. You have 3 options regarding your use of alcohol.

1. Abstinence
2. Recreational Use
3. Abuse

Pick a path, but you probably know by now that 1 & 3 suck. Unfortunatley for some people these are the only options they allow themselves. Nobody is stopping them from enjoying option 2 but themselves.
If you're serious about controlling your drinking but you don't want to quit, then think about implementing some kind of regime with you're drinking. An example for me... I don't toke before 4:20pm on a weekday. Its my rule, if I break my own rule then I suck at life so I don't break it. Of course there are exceptions, but they are few and far between and if i'm going to break one of my drug rules, I do it knowing there is a legitimate reason to. In other words I don't comdem myself for not sticking to it. It's all about having trust and belief in yourself.

Just drink less and shift your attention more to what's going on at the setting. That helps ease your mind off the booze and have a good time, whilst maintaining a good buzz.  :shrug:

I dunno but that technique has been working great for me as of late.

Option two is out for me.
If I start drinking I'll drink for a week or longer and end it with the last half being a 1/2 gal a day.

Looks like option 1, abstinence, is the only way for me.

Get a hobby like mellow said. Since I stopped doing dope I had to find something to eat the time that nodding out filled. I have started to find time to read a little here and there and lately I have started sketch drawing. I am not very artistic so I usually find images from the net and attempt to reproduce them and maybe alter them a little bit. Not true art but it's fun and kills hours and hours of my time

I was quite the alchy for awhile and then I got my DUI and it literally changed my mentality. I dont drink hardly at all any more. Once every week on average probably instead of 5-6 days a week

Good luck man. Just set a realistic goal for yourself (like you did) and stick to it no matter what

I just realized I said "not a drop". I'm already going to retract that, because I'm going to be taking small sips of my mead every week or so to see if its OK to give to my friends for Christmas haha.

My problem isn't so much that I need to drink constantly, its more that I once I start I just don't stop until everything is gone or I'm asleep...so I figure taking a baby sip of some mead is a good test more than actually "drinking". :shrug:

I can't do that.

This will be a good test for you.
