God, I would give everything bar my self worth to go for a bottle of some fine whisky right now. Been sober for 8 years because I was at the precipice of suicide, wrecking my family and all those around me when I was a poor slob of a man, submitting myself to the spirits. I'm not going to lie to you people. I feel a lot better now, than I did before but the self destructive demon in me would love nothing more than to have a glass of whisky with all you people right now. It's hard fighting back these thoughts, these calls, asking for me to come back to the realm of being intoxicated and lost within the maze of my own hazy mind. But I have to do it for them Have a drink on me, fellas and you better enjoy every damn drop
>>1390742 It tastes disgusting but I’m not drinking it for the taste, I drink to get drunk. Everyone knows that coke and Pepsi are terrible for you so why make your drinking problems worse by mixing that shit with your vodka?
>>1390750 I have been there. I can't anymore. The gate of Heaven have been closed for me anon. I am doomed to a life in Hell
>>1390752 Belated Happy Birthday anon. Drink shouldn't be the source of your happiness but it is what it is. You're young. You have plenty to learn. And sure, one day you'll learn what the spirits can do to you. But, for now, you must enjoy every last sip of your drink and revel in ignorance
>>1390732 (OP) Think I'm gonna stop drinking. It's starting to fuck my life over and I'm not cool with that. Do you guys think I can just lower the dose over time to basically have no withdrawals? Or should I just try it cold and drink something if I end in a delirium? Been drinking every day for a bit more than a year.
Reporting in. I have two shots every morning before I leave for work. Keep a bottle of Black Velvet Reserve (cheap Canadian Whisky, 8 years old) at all times for general wake-up shots. Right now, my nicer bottle is 1800 Anejo Tequila. Always keep a flask-sized bottle of Jack in my glove-box so I can have a shot during work when I go out for a smoke.
Best shit I've had is Kirk and Sweeney Dominican rum, 23 years old. Fucking nectar of the gods. Captain's cabin-level shit there.
I'm trying to cut down. I have to. Drinking a little less is not working. I get the shakes and I feel like s***. Any advice, like food or herbs that would help? I was in detox for 5 days couple months ago, didn't sleep one night, they're giving me Trazodone and Ativan. I still didn't sleep until I got out. Then I took a bunch of skullcap passion flower kava kava hops valerian root, and catnip tea. That worked better than the Ativan they're giving me. Does anyone have any other tricks, I would love to know them....
It is good to have a few drinks every day. Try to not drink before or during working, but that could be good too. It is great to develop a personal foundation and natural ability and energy for yourself and all you know. And try not to drink during things you have to do after, and just try to drink at night or on the days you have off. It is good to have some drinks I believe, and a few cordials. Drinking is an antiseptic, and it helps the body get clean in many ways. Thay is why I believe it is such a hard substance to stop using, the body does have a good purpose for it. It is good to take parts of days or whole days off too, but just work on doing priorities right and not be drunk too much or with a buzz. But it is good to have days of just drinking continually too, it makes the body stronger and helps clean it. And I also think what is better, going to bed with a turd in our stomach or its residue or something that will help clean it more. I clean my ears and nose regularly with a mix of mostly water and white vinegar and I do things to make the body be more clean.
Used to drink a 1/5th of jack daniels or a pint of rum and 2 mikes hardER lemonaids (mango) and a couple blunts/jointsdowls everyday for two years
I grew cannabis and used to sell it here and there (not really a dealer, just 3 freinds at 20 eighths, made anywhere from $20- 60 a day) just to pay for my habbit and gave one freind bud everday to go to the store for me I loved the gelling of being cross faded and listening to music & chilling with friend's.
I noticed a problem once i did the math and realized i soent over 16+k in 2 years of drinking everyday Decided to go cold turkey, being completly ignorant of withdrawls Had 3 seizures (one that almost kill me, full blown hallucinogenic near death experience) Auditory and visual hallucinations (Oddly enough, always had my thoughts cut off and produce a loud blood curtling scream that sounded like a women) And of course DT's with the fucking defcon 5 heart palpitations Also had basically everything minor from tremors to insomnia
1 year later my heart is still fucked, im starting to cure my overnight hypoglycemia, i have nuerological damage and now i cant get high off anything at all without having what fells like panic attacks for no fucking reason... I still grow as somewhat as a hobby and started working in a hydroshop restocking soil. Sucks i cant get high but i payed the price.
Be safe out there and know your limits. I can never take back what i did and i refuse to blame the alcohol. It is the biggest regret of my life
28 now, been drinking almost every day since I was 18, stoned for most of that time as well. Just do it all in moderation. Self control is key. I know that I'm a sexually aggressive asshole when I'm drunk, and so I don't get drunk around other people. Besides, since my tolerance is through the roof, it's nice to drink and still be the sober one who laughs at all the wasted kiddies and their shenanigans.
>>1390799 And to continue, I am drinking currently 12-14 Steel Reserves everyday lol because I am unemployed. I am homeless because the restoration company I was working for ran low on work and had to let some people go. I worked there most of last year. I had a month of savings for rent and I was applying to jobs in person when it was allowed and calling to let them know ahead of time that I am looking to work and that I will be coming to fill out an application and then asking if the manager will be available to talk after. I had interviews but I just wasnt hired. And I always refrained to drink until night of course
The body will just build up natural byproducts and excretion if it does not have something to develop its living situation and make more possibilities. When the body is in displacement and is seditary, there is a build up of this. And alcohol helps clean and flush it, and it helps the body work more efficiently, and it makes it stronger.
I sleep under random awnings and in parking lots. I avoid the woods like the plague because of bugs and all the nasty things there. Also trees and branches drop of course, and there are animals like raccoons so when I couldve bought a tent I didnt.
Everyday I just have one or two in the morning only, and I wait an hour and hold up a sign asking for help or work. I hope each day to get a work lead for some manual labor job or to get picked up. It is the only type of job I can have right now due to lack of clothes and resources. There is a place to shower, a homeless service center nearby, and I do regularly. And I get work just here or there. I just got picked up last week for a landscaping job and I was paid 80 for the day. But of course do you know what they said? I would need my own transportation to have a position and have the job, and their meet up point is always miles away. So I am just continuing to try to get work and I am actually someone who is homeless that really wants to work. I am 30 also.
>>1390809 lol that is not why I am in this scenario though. Is that what you are implying? I always kept to priorities and do so now. I just had two drinks before a full day of work for my past job, but other people can make more work. If you read my past post you will see what I mean and all.
>>1390806 How is that not right? It does that and is known to do that from just basic science and more. I am sure you are just used to basic things but I have read many interesting strong peer supported dissertations in some journals on the mechanism of action and benefit of alcohol with it on the body, with studies of course.
>>1390816 Happy Birthday and cheers brother. Life is interesting and shitty many times, we try to make it work and do work together. I am sipping on some cheap dark rum, mixed with water lol. I am thw homeless anon from a few posts up, I drink liquor instead of Steel Reserve here or there. And I planned on doing it more often, and will do. But I will always drink beer too of course.
So broke can't buy gas for the car or food for the kid and wife. She doesn't speak to me except to tell me how she doesn't approve of me, or if she needs something. I shoplift $300+ of food per week including booze for her but she always has a complaint about what I bring back. Used to never drink now I am 6 or 7 beers a night and a shot or two during the day. Year ago had $15k in the bank today all my cards have been shut off, $48k of debt, 123% utilization, no job, no hope, an hero looks more like the better option every day.
