How often do you drink?
I was drinking around 400ml of Jim Beam a day, but I quit cold turkey 2 days ago
6 years for me, it gets easier pretty quickly. I don't understand how someone just can't control it and let it ruin their lives.
I thought quitting would be harder tbh but I've already saved 20 bucks, by the end of the month it'll be 300. Plus cutting out 400 calories is nice
300??? On alcohol. Bro cmon
Drinking 400ml Jim Beam every day would easily cost me 400€ a month (I'm in Sweden)
it's a perfect system, booze is so expensive that any struggling alcoholic will go homeless, and then in winter all the homeless freeze to death.
lmao we have the same system in canada, except we euthanise them if they get rowdy
>I don't understand how someone just can't control it and let it ruin their lives
If you're touting six years sober then you probably should have a semblence of understanding how, you fucking retard.p
Nah he not part of them fag programs he got juice
For me it's about inertia. Easy to stay sober if I've been at least a week without a drink, hard to stop again if I drink more than a couple times. What winds up happening is if I've been drinking for a bit, I'll "quit" a couple times before it sticks, then I'll be sober for at least a few weeks.
I don't either. I don't actually enjoy drinking
As Andrew Tate said (yes, I know): people who "have fun without alcohol" are simply not having the same kind of fun. Their fun is playing settlers of catan, not waking up next to a model in a different country.
I usually agree with tate, but that's fucking retarded. Just go do extreme sports. Doesn't require alcohol consumption at all, and there are hot chicks in abundance
Be careful anon, you'll probably start getting anxiety, paranoia, and possibly hallucinations come day 3-7
If your symptoms get bad go to the hospital before you get seizures
dont quit cold turkey retard your going to have seizures and die
400ml isn’t enough to have seizures. I quit a 6 month 500-750 ml a night whiskey habit and barely had the shakes for like 2 days.
if you get the shakes you can get seizures tard
Never. Unless you count the occasional 1 or 2 beers.
That would be drinking, yes.
>I don't drink, except for when I drink
I don't anymore.
never, i have a perfectly good body and brain, why would i waste it on shit water? only fools and losers drink.
Three times a week.
Beer on Thursday.
Beer and spirits on Friday and Saturday.
Grow up no fun gay
>He needs beer to be fun
when you say shit like
it makes you look like a know it all gay that thinks he's better than everyone, hence why he told you to grow up
you could have just said "I don't drink" or not even opened the thread at all, but you wanted to look so cool, yet immature in reality
I think I'll have a glass of Macallan in your honor
Por que no los dos?
I can enjoy spending time with high-brow activities, having interesting discussions with friends or doing cryptic crosswords like a fuckin nerd.
But I can also have fun getting shithouse drunk at a club and sniffing coke off some girl's titties.
It's not a zero sum game.
This. I do enjoy my time sober, but all adventures happen when drinking
Why did you reply to his post if you think you're any better? Letting emotions get the better of you, typical drunkie. Go lay down.
I don't drink, eat steak and eggs.
Okay. But do you drink, eat steak or eggs?
Every week or so when visiting my mom. She often goes on about some lefty political nonsense and it helps me tolerate her.
I haven’t drank since July 1, 2021. I work as a server at a Brewhouse now and it’s almost second nature to take drinks out and not even realize I had a problem. I would wake up and grab the 750 ml bottle of whiskey to feel normal. I’ll never forget January 6, 2021 when I woke up with my pancreas and liver screaming. I started a hard taper and haven’t looked back. I would get hammered at work since I did night audit at a hotel. I don’t really miss it but being sober can be miserable sometimes. That feeling when you wake up in the morning and have that coffee and realize your alive and DIDN'T throw your life away brings a tear to my eyes most days.
based and checked ygmi anon keep it up. May 7th 2022 for me.
>January 6, 2021
were you in washington dc by any chance....
I used to drink a lot in college at parties or bars, but now I just occasionally go to a brewery/winery/cidery with friends a few times a year.
I don't really understand the appeal of casually drinking at home. My homes have never had alcohol in them.
750ml across two days once a week.
Last time was March I think
I've still got a big ass bottle of soju sitting around with like maybe a single mouthful gone
I dont, unless im at a concert or out with friends which these days is maybe a couple of times a year.
All day every day
Occasionally. Like I’ll get piss drunk every three months or so. Only fags and incels have meltdowns about not drinking.
Every friday and saturday night. Life at an American college. People only want to hang out while drunk. There are people I've been friends with for months that I've never seen sober.
>People only want to hang out while drunk
>There are people I've been friends with for months that I've never seen sober
college man, so many good memories. most of them being completely drunk though, i simply could not repeat the same experiences now in my 30's, as hangovers lasts way more than in my 20's
I quit 15 years ago
Maybe once a month I’ll have a beer
depends a lot in where i'm in life at the moment, but i'd say about once or twice a month and no more than a couple of beers.
the thing is i used to grab a gram or two of coke and drank my ass off until either alcohol or coke runs out. i fucking loved this ritual, but i knew it was very self destructive, as i was doing it almost every week and sometimes multiple days at the week.
gotta admit though i still do this rarely, but no way as often as before, maybe twice a year or so.
Seriously cut back 3 days, so its been sips of sweet liquor now before bed. I got really drunk this Thursday so I am disgusted by it atm.
Daily it would be 150ml of liquor with 100-200ml of liqueur. It's been almost a year now of straight drinking. I'm always alone after work or most nights so I drink a lot to help me sleep
i'd strongly advise to try to cut this habit. alcohol right before bed is a very bad idea, as you don't really get a good quality sleep.
try melatonin and/or heavy cardio 2 hours before bed. did the trick for me at least.
have a very physical job that beats me up, I've been semi consistently doing workouts before work to try wear me out. Melatonin has been in daily use for several years now. Considering zopiclone.
Melatonin is horrible long term, no good doctor will recommend it. Drinking is better for your health.
>Melatonin is horrible long term
provide source (you won't)
He probably got it from the Dr Hooberman Dooberman podcast that preaches "science based tools" (spoiler: the podcast itself isn't based). That guy is pretty anti-melatonin
But Matthew Walker, literal sleep scientist, says that taking it occasionally is totally fine, but also that it might be 90% placebo.
My Psych professor told so.
It's the only over the counter hormone you can get. Affects hormone balance.
dr bloomstein told me so, i know what im talking about
I'm a student so at least twice a week.
i only drink to get fucked up so i havent drank in a while because i have no self control
last time i drank was last month where i won money gambling and got so drunk and high that i passed out in my car
3-5 times a month, socially
Only in special ocasions like birthdays or when i meet with soneone i haven't seen in a long time.
I don't like drinking tho i hate hangovers
I spend my Saturdays drinking a 30 rack of PBR plus a fifth of Malort. Stone cold sober the rest of the week though.
Glass of scotch or wine a few times a week.
Sometimes have a couple beers socially when peer pressured to bars.
I save getting shitfaced for the holidays, like my birthday and christmas/new years.
>yeah i'll have four fingers of whiskey
I just don't drink simple as bros. You don't need to drink so don't?
>fall into stressful job with a lot of responsibility
>get urge to drink
>can't because too much responsibility
Just don't drink and tell your boss to suck your cock
Never unless it's a social event.
Alcoholic drinks are completely pointless and just put me in a shitty mood if there's nothing interesting going on around me. Once I left college, I found no reason to drink anymore.
I drink 500ml of wine every single day. Current lifts
youre drinking too much anon
Enjoy your glass of Roundup
about every three months
for two weeks straight
I need to get this shit under control
by this do you mean that every 3 months you go on a 2 week bender?
I hardly ever drank but i been struggling a lot with grief and loss because a bunch of stuff happened, and now im drinking like 3 beers a night. it sucks that it takes the pain away so well :/
Fucking lmao, they can't even label it as rum here in the UK because of how many additives and flavourings they put in it.
Hurr durr all the flavorings
No shit, they add Hispanices and flavorings to Hispaniced rum. Imagine that.
Rum by definition can't have anything added to it so all "Hispaniced rums" are not rums.
Not very often. My ex was a literal alcoholic and would drink a 40 of gin every 4 days, It really ruined drinking for me.
I binge drink on either Friday or Saturday (10-20 drinks) each week at bars, but it’s a waste of money and I’m very aware of the slippery slope alcohol has.
My dad was an alcoholic but quit before I was born, my mom never drinks. We never had alcohol in the house growing up and still don’t. Basically brainwashed me (in a good way) that alcohol is a useless drug. I think it’s fun but if you’re relying on a substance to have fun then something needs to change.
Decided to go sober for a while 10-11 days ago
Before then get blackout drunk (~900-1000ml vodka) once a week for 4-5 years. Sometimes I'd go 2-3 weeks without drinking.
good luck anon
Holidays and when friends are in town.
on weekdays I'll drink one portion of scotch every other day after dinner.
on fridays and saturdays I'll have 1~2 cocktails in the evening.
It's comfy, we put on a movie and make some cocktails at home.
then we go upstairs and have woozy sex with both being giggly and relaxed
Pretty much same, I'll make a couple of cocktails and drink seltzer with the wife.
What supps for alcoholic hepatitis
just go on amazon you retard
Thanks, but how many mg of each a day
every once in awhile when im hanging out socially with friends. i dont quite understand how people let the allure of being drunk completely destroy their lives
I think its mostly to help with emotional pain
Once a week max, I'm not that much into alcohol
I drink one glass of red wine every night
I stopped drinking for five years but then started again at the end of 2019. I started drinking one or two beers very often, like four or five days a week, and got drunk maybe once a week. It was my way of unwinding after work, I didn't have much to look forward to at home so I'd just go straight to the bar when I finished most days. It was a really bad habit and I kept it up for a long time. Recently started drinking a lot less, I'd like to stop again completely, although I think I'd miss the occasional beer/whisky and getting a pint with friends. Alcohol is really fuckin bad for you in so many ways
I don’t drink alcohol but I drink a 100mg weed elixir every Sunday
Once a week normally, I mostly do it to be sociable. Don't get me wrong I like the feeling of a few drinks, but if the people I hung out with didn't drink I would probably stop. I also don't get black out drunk anymore, when I was a nerdy DYEL with no confidence it was the only way I would feel comfortable at parties, now a few beers is my good spot.
I like making drinks and those are pretty caloric, so I end up drinking less not to get fat. Even then I only drink a bit and never by myself. If and when I want to drink more I always plan in advance to give myself time to think about. For example this year there's a friends birthday coming up and I'll drink my fair share and in the end of the year it will mark one year of my failed marriage and on that day I'll drink until I pass out drunk.
Once a week. Either Friday or Saturday evening.
Alone because I have no friends.
alcoholic here. used to be a daily drinker, then a weekend binge drinker (which was actually much worse), then every other weekend. Did a 20 day streak recently, then a 25, currently going for 30 days. Probably should give it up entirely but I'm not quite ready yet. The problem is when I do go out now after a period of abstinence, I almost always drink way too much in a single night
In July I got blackout drunk on a trip and ruined the night. Was ill and unable to keep food down for a week. Probably had really bad poisoning. The raw disgust I felt looking at any liquor after that was enough to keep me sober on it's own.
Since then I've had maybe like 2 glasses of white wine at dinners, and I nursed a single 3% beer over the span of 5 hours at a social gathering.
I should also add:
>Since I've stopped drinking I've literally blown up in muscle size and gotten a lot leaner despite still eating big calorically
>never had this many mires in my life, people I see regularly are somehow noticing a change all at once
Booze is a gains goblin, whether or not it's a life-goblin (as it was in my case)
>booze is a gains goblin
This is the biggest reason for why I seldom drink. Alcohol is literally terrible for you in every way and I really dislike the idea of throwing away my hard earned progression just to feel numb for a few hours.
Literally every day
7 days a week. Two weeks on, one week off.
Used to be 4 weeks on, one off.
Lifting makes me sleep as bad as alvcohol does.
I've been sick now for over a week and have been sleeping 6-7 hrs a night with no lifting or exercise. I feel better in every limb and have more clarity in my mind.
When I lift I always feel fatigued, exhausted and brainfog.
I wish I could sleep better.
Drank a glass of wine last Christmas. Probably will drink a glass of wine next Christmas.
Went from once every weekend to every day of the weekend to every day of the weekend and random week days and now back to just weekends. Weed/CBD helped a bit to sober me out for like 3 months but made me too paranoid. I need to quit this shit, man. That or learn to control drunk me. There is no such thing as "just 1 bottle" or "we'll stop here".
i was drinking half a bottle of rum every couple of days and when i stopped drinking as much at the beginning of summer i lost 20 pounds (obvs changed my diet too) but losing weight and seeing how its ruining my mom and sister was a huge motivator to not backslide that i dont feel the need for alcohol at all.
probably once a season I go out with me mates and get shitfaced
I only occasionally get shitfaced with my friends and then suffer anxiety next day, so i rarely drink. I don't drink daily, even small amounts because i get depressive when i do, so i prefer to stay sober most of the time.
Almost never. I occasionally have fruity cocktails or spirits when drinking with friends but I'm not particularly interested in alcohol outside of a social context
i quit for a few months here recently but a few weeks ago i started drinking every friday, now i wanna drink today on a monday after drinking last friday. i can already see the writing on the wall and i worked so hard to get away from the shit... fuck
fuck it i caved in boys the day was just so fucking boring and felt like itd never end, and i kept having this nostalgia bugging me about the early 2000s and how fucking great it was. heres to this 6 pack
>the early 2000s and how fucking great it was
Rose-colored glasses. Post-9/11 popular culture was pretty trash. Even internet culture peaked around 2010-2013 imo.
yeah ive learned that lesson about nostalgia over the past few years its never as good as you think it was. better to create new memories and live in them in the moment than dwell on shit of the past. nostalgia still a motherfucker though and you believe it anyway when it hits. the rise before the fall i guess
I just have a beer or two at restaurants. Or if someone offers a drink at a family/friend gathering I'll have a couple usually. Never actually keep alcohol at home though.
around once or twice a week, I usually over do it though
I love drinking but I get brutal hangovers, like debilitating hangovers. I think I developed an allergy or intolerance or something. I cant have more than 2-3 drinks in one sitting now days. Sucks.
My parents are casual evening wine drinkers and instilled that mindset into me.
Used to have a couple glasses of wine with dinner, and maybe a beer afterwards (3 drinks over the course of 2-3 hours).
Nowadays though, I'm basically a functional (mild) alcoholic. I have at least 3 drinks every night after work (usually 5 to 6), and a bowl or two of weed. Periodically I'll also take a shot in the middle of the work day (I work from home), which is a bit worrying.
I'm not even really sure what the draw is for me. I don't really like getting drunk. I guess being slightly tipsy makes life so much less boring, so I try to maintain that feeling as much as possible
only on the weekends
Every day. I drink because I can't feel anything except anxiety.
Maybe 2-3 times a year at family events.
I have a little wine once every few weeks. I just bought a handle of brandy though because I have the sniffles.
>consuming alcohol because you have a cold
>will literally make your cold last twice as long because your body also has to process the alcohol
I've been drinking nearly a whole bottle everyday yesterday is my last day, this is it boys
Every weekend from friday night until i pass out on saturday. Sunday is pure hell
Having recently turned 25 im noticing a sharp decrease in my tolerance and increase in severity of hangovers
My first 2 years out of college i worked a truly miserable job, began drinking every day, the minute i got off work and wouldnt stop until i went to bed at midnight, often 4-7 beers a night and 7-10 on weekends.
Became severely depressed and anxious between that, the job and 5-6 hours of sleep a night
Quit the job, less depressed now, cut back to about 2 beers/day and 3-4 on weekends, usually 5-6 days a week.
Anons, if alcoholism genes are in your family, be careful. Youre still having fun and fitting in with other young people when you cross that line into problem drinking- it only becomes apparent that you have a problem when youve developed a serious addiction.
Alcohol can be very fun. Its about how you use it. One single drink can "loosen you up," give you something to do with your hands in a social setting, etc. Theres never a reason to push it too far.
Dont make drinking daily a habit. You will lose your gains, your hair, and eventually your job and your friends
>didn't start drinking until 21 (junior year of college)
>day it happened I buy pic related
>get only halfway through before tapping out
>fast forward 11 years
>find the same cheap vodka I did the first time
>empty the bottle without losing control
Bros do I have a problem?
damn I didn't know you could get drunk from a chinese cartoon character
i prefer drinking picrel
I meant this
800 ml of vodka per day except sunday bc liquor store is closed. sunday is normally beer
I got to the club once a week
About 6 days a week. In the evening I drink about 4 beers and smoke a joint. On the weekend it might be 5-6 beers and 2 joints.
Feels good man. I get 8+ hours of sleep every night and rarely get a hangover.
That strategy works really well when you're 22 and your body can handle that type of shit. By 30 you will be in hangover city
You wont get hangovers if you drink regularly.
Hard liquor can cure cold fast
Once every 1-2 months. Only problem is that I only drink hard liquor and will usually drink an entire, or almost an entire, 700ml bottle of either Jack Daniels no.7 Tennessee whiskey 40%, Johnnie Walker 40%, Smirnoff 37.5%, Wild Turkey 40.5%, or Capitan Morgan Rum 35%. I'm 105kg right now, and I'm cutting to 83kg, so I hope it will take less alcohol to get me drunk like it used to when I was that weight previously.
My girlfriend is a bartender, so nearly every weekend, when I visit her at work.
I dont like the next day.
Also I have a felling I already did so many shit in my life that messing with my perception for pleasure is me again wasting myself in ways I never will get back
I am 34 yo and I want to age as well as I could.
Sure if I am with friend somewhere I will drink. I did it last month and got a very energetic buzz from very little beer. Next day I was 6am inside a smoking river and all my friend totally wasted. I was proud of myself. And more than that, what is different from the last time you got drunk?
Nothing... Its all the same.
Fridays when my Dad visits and once in the middle of the week.
at college, usually 3 nights a week (thursday, friday saturday). Sometimes 4.
I'm at my senior year so I'm trying to soak up absolutely as much of the fun as I can. I told myself that as soon as I get a girlfriend or graduate I'm chilling out, whichever comes first. Until then I'm constantly hunting for girls at the bars. I don't really get blacked out, just until I get decently drunk until I either get kind of quiet or all my friends leave and then I wander home by myself.
I've realized that drinking at this capacity makes me pretty depressed throughout the week. I am usually at my peak happiness thursday, after I've gotten to work out a couple of times. My hangovers have become two-day ordeals, on sunday just sleeping and sweating and rolling around in bed, being crampy and weak and then monday being slightly under the weather
I'm just ready to graduate and move so going out becomes boring. I know how to be happy sober, but I have such severe FOMO seeing all my friends out and knowing that I'll miss out on opportunity for easy and available pussy that I'll never have the chance at ever again. Going to the bars is basically the only time I have for socialization throughout the week, and I'm an extremely extroverted person. If I didn't go out I'd basically on talk to a bunch of autistic engineering students.
I try to keep drinking pretty strict to only after 6:30 Thursday, Friday, etc. so as not to let it creep earlier in the day or start doing shit like drinking in the morning. I've maintained the damage a decent amount so I'm not ashamed of my body but it's not what it used to be. I'm excited to get out and join a gym and just do that. Over the summers I would go to the gym like 5-6x a week.
IDK I think if I stayed for another year after this I'd either be on the cusp of having a serious problem. Luckily when I get drunk I don't cause problems, break shit, say rude shit, be creepy etc. I just get quiet and realize I can't hold decent conversations
the post did not need to be this long. holy fuck this is IST not tumblr.

The old asf zooomer to boomer melody. Enjoy while it lasts.
i wanna get a fat sack of coke and pretend to be the man, ? do i do it or no
>Sober 4 days
When do the nightmares and shakes stop?
about twice a year.
If I go to a conference, I get tipsy every social event so i can talk to people.
havent for almost three years. still smoke weed every week or two so i don't feel like a total square tho
Several times a week. I think the other day I was BBQing steaks and got bored so I bought two 24oz of bud light. When I'm doing a shit load of cardio I do tend to drink more beer while I'm out and about (I know, fucking degenerate as hell). If I feel like getting wasted I will grab a fifth of wine but that is a pretty rare, maybe twice a month.
Never. Sober my whole life
I think you can only survive 3 days without doing so.
I quit drinking forever. That was 7 seconds ago.
I have to drink water everyday or else I suffer.
Why do you ask, fellow Human?
When I hangout with people after work, I don’t really mind if they don’t drink. I just don’t wanna hear about how you don’t drink, or that were being loud,or even see that your not having a good time because were all drunk. Fucking mood killer, just go home then.
>Start going to gym with mate
>He's a big drinker since be travels a lot for work and stays away most weeks
>Couple months pass and he gives up on gym due to being away too often and not being able to stick to a routine
>Always inviting me out for drinks
I don't wanna decline since he's the only mate I actually hang out with and he's a good lad. But every week I'm falling off the gym wagon and skipping days to go drinking.
>skipping days to go drinking.
Unless you are only physically able to gym in the evening, going out with your pal shouldn't really hurt your gains too much.
Friends are important too man. As long as he isn't convincing you to get annihilated drunk constantly, you're good.
Everyday for about 14 years, now decided to get sober. Still, it's only been a week.
I like it
This October is the first time in 2 years that I haven’t had alcohol for more than 2 days.
Never have, never will. The only recreational drug that I use is ecstasy every 3 months when I go to a rave which is only a fiver for 1 pill
Never. It makes you easy to brainwash.
but you're a redpill weaboo incel, anon. You're already brainwashed
Projecting really hard
If I'm not smoking weed, I'll have a bottle of Coors a day, just to have something to "take the edge off" the day to day misery of being a wagie.
This is usually enough to give me a bit of a buzz, because I'm woefully skinny so I don't spend too much on it. Or considerably less than I would on weed.
