Is there any way to get the social confidence that comes with being drunk without actually drinking alcohol?

    A single puff of weed, not enough to be a lazy ass but enough to take the edge off the bullshit. Outside of that, fake it till you make it

    if youre going to drink alcohol you should try to limit it to 2 days a week, maybe 3 at the most. I drink regularly and i think its important to have days off your body can rest and not process it out. also you have less tolerance that way so you drink less and spend less money too. Its more enjoyable when you dont do it every day/ every night. try not to drink at all for a week or two every few months also, if nothing else, convince yourself its to get a strong buzz later. but really this is for your body to recover and heal. do not drink every day.

    Instead of finding productive and healthy ways to destress you destroy your body to feel freedom from anxiety

    Confidence is built on battlefronts and fields of battle. You are confident in your friends because they didn't frick you over. You are confident in your car because it didn't fail you. Confidence in oneself is looking back and seeing undeniable proof of greatness. Of achieving every goal you go for. Of even if you fail you giving your best.

    You can't do that. You are weak man, a boy at best. Don't deceive yourself in the future anymore and stop fearing things.

    Frick confidence, I don't have the mental wiring to care about what people tell me. Any drugs for that? For professional settings mostly.

    Things that have worked for me:
    >low dose etizolam (you must be disciplined and keep it a low dose or you will lose control of your life)
    >amphetamines + etizolam + a couple of beers = god mode (short term solution, will frick you up long term)
    >beta blockers (these help especially if you have physical symptoms of anxiety e.g. racing heart, sweaty palms, mom's spaghetti)
    >low dose opiates (again, don't make it a habit and keep it a low dose. Don't drink too much, but the whole fearmongering about mixing booze with opiates is over the top if you keep it to a couple of drinks).

    Everyone here is saying benzos or phenibut, but OP look into beta blockers such as propranolol. They basically eviscerate any physical anxiety and are not addictive.

    Seriously, look into it and thank me later.

    Alcohol isn't really poison. If you over do it sure it is bad for you, but a little bit here and there is fine and is pretty healthy. Don't fall for the no alcohol psyop. All the most successful people are former alcoholics or some other type of drug addict.

    Fake it til you make it. Also helps to realize that a) few people care that much to obsess about you negatively or really care about some social faux pas and b) even if they did we're all dumb monkeys in the end so why bother

    Anon this will not be the answer that you want because I know it was not what I wanted to hear at the time either. And that is you need to socialize sober. I don’t know what type of drinker you are so maybe you can have a few drinks with friends and it’s a positive thing but for me I needed alcohol even before preparing to be in a social situation. This made me 100% reliant on alcohol for personality. But you can’t drink for every anxious social occasion which left me totally inept at socializing at work or in scenarios where being drunk would not be an option. Swapping alcohol for benzos or another drug (can’t speak for beta blockers) will not address the cause of your problem. Socializing without alcohol was very uncomfortable at first but I became confident in who I was while sober because I was making good decisions and getting shredded after not drinking gains away. TLDR: it’s going to be hard but don’t use alcohol as a social crutch because it’s not a real long term strategy learn to like who you are when you make good decisions and be confident in that. And make some extra gains in the process

    I hope every single one of you in here makes it. I believe in all of you. If you want something bad enough and are willing to put the effort in, you can do it. Even though progress is not always linear and there are setbacks, you will get there.

    You aren’t functional and social, it’s delusion telling you that alcohol will magically fix you. It won’t. You’re defective and there’s no cure

    Just take a beta-blocker? No withdrawals, no alteration of brain chemistry, no tolerance, and no health affects (unless you are a fat frick). You will still have anxious thoughts, but your body just wont give a shit.

    You wont feel any different until you are in a situation that gives you anxiety. I remember the first time I took one before a presentation in front of my class in college and I spoke and talked without any stutter, sweating, or having a rapid heart rate like I would have. It doesn't make me any more confident, and yet I can talk to people without a sweat.

    I'm in the same position as you , I've exhausted all options for social confidence with the last exception being meds. Like I fricking hate meds because I'm autistic and I see it as cheating. But I failed to hang my self after having a melt down and I don't really wanna die so I guess i'm on meds now, and I recommend you trying it as well.

    and if it doesn't work it doesn't matter since I'd just die anyway. Also alcohal is literally a placebo man to an extent , I realized a lot of the time I thought I was drunk I wasn't and I just gaslighted my self into acting normal and stop overthinking but its hard to do it consistently at all once you realize your just gaslighting our self and it can back fire really fricking bad and lead to a proper meltdown.

    I hope you the best man , we might make it.
