that doesn't make any sense to me

I really disagree with this belief

I am definitely not an alcoholic and I drink alone sometimes up to three times a week

If I want a beer I drink a beer whether or not somebody's with me


Well I disagree with it also.

But I wonder if there's a reason we disagree with it.

It seems weird that it's only "ok" to drink when with other people. It's a poison what difference does it make if there's company around while you're poisoning yourself?

Even if you are doing those things you still stay antsy about not doing more.

At least I do.

Cracked a Yuengling tall boy, doing some light work, reading this thread. With you guys. I'm not alone.

Hmm, sorry, this is not the Thursday night drinking thread. Don't worry though, this is not at all a delicious beverage.

Yeah I handle this now by putting myself to sleep with two benadryl every night. Let's hear it for a life without drugs!

My anxieties don't manifest in any way. Like I don't have panic attacks or anything. I'll just get bummed about not doing more.

And I exercise constantly. Which makes me feel great while exercising and for like an hour after, but then it's back to the coal mine.

Not at all.

The amount of consumption for me is nowhere near alchi status, but I do find myself trying to get three or four drinks in me before I have to go to a party or something, especially if it's for a friend of my wife's where i'm likely to know very few people. I just don't have the socializing with strangers gene at all unless i'm a tiny bit buzzed. Drinking to face the world seems unhealthy, but oh well.

Maybe not "hearing myself think", but drinking calms me down like nothing else does. While it's probably a bad sign, I seem to get more work done at times if I have a beer or two. Hell, I have a paper due Monday, and I did half of it mostly in one sitting after having 2 or 3 Hopslams.

I probably rely on beer/alcohol too much at times to calm myself down and shit, but my consumption hasn't even come close to messing with me being a normal human being on a day to day basis.

rules:
drink no more than three nights a week
if you puke, it's too much
if it messes with your career and/or relationships, it's too much

if you cross these thresholds then you need to pull back

if you really have trouble sleeping, take a melotonin

you still have to live the life that got you there, now without the solution.

fester wrote:The same rules don't apply to everyone. The general one for a true alcoholic is just don't start, you lose if you do. I can be around people drinking no problem. It's just if I get a taste I want to keep drinking until I can't stand it. I don't get cravings or temptations. Sometimes I just make a conscious decision to do it, usually as a stress coping thing. I know some people who have what I would consider less severe alcoholism than me who can't handle even seeing the stuff. The result for them caving in is one crazy night, where for me it's a full week of life destroying behavior. I'd kind of prefer it the way I have it, because it's not a daily struggle at all. I just have to be self aware enough to know when things are building toward a breaking point and either seek help or divert course. Controlling yourself is really easy until it's hard.


this is me. coping gets easier the further away you get, but the debris keeps piling up. i'm slowing coming around and feel ten times better physically, but now i feel that much less a part of the world around me. it's a grueling process digging yourself out from the isolation and the soul-devouring loneliness that comes with it. and i've been alone so long that now that i'm jobless with no immediate future, i don't know what to do. i got through thanksgiving and christmas/new year's alone with no relapse, but only just barely. i don't think i'll be caving again, but then why live this life with so little to look forward to?
