I don't usually drink anymore.

Probably the craziest shit I did was I left an AA meeting around noon after 1.5 month sober or so. Walked to bar and had 3 or 4 dbl shots of well gin chased with labatts and water. Took cab to bank and withdrew and closed health savings acct from previous job. Took cab to next bar, drank more, another bar, drink more, bought a bunch of long island ice teas for ppl I thought wanted them but didn't so I drank them all. Bar closed, I walked away, ended up falling asleep outside. Woke up, realized I could take cab, took cab to hotel, got liquor, ordered hooker, fucked hooker (she had a tampon in it was weird...), updated facebook profile picture, started texted girl from rehab and guy I once fucked around with, talked to both, ended up leaving for girls house and left guy hanging, went to girls house and drank and fucked a bunch, next day she wants us to get drugs, we both shoot heroin (I had never done heroin before), so we just shoot a bunch of heroin for a couple days, money's gone, trick my mom into giving me more, do more drugs with girl, get sad and go to hospital, start to feel better and leave, tell girl we're still on for later, purposely overdraw bank account 4 or 5 hundred dollars, go to town where girl is, can't get ahold of her, drink in bar for a few hours, go to her house with bottle of vodka and food, nobody home, I think she's dead from overdose, break in, nobody home, drink, get sad, suicidal, swallow bottle of prescription drugs with vodka in suicide attempt, almost die, someone finds me in house, cops, paramedics, in the ICU for some amount of time, etc etc, go to psych ward

I then met my current girlfriend in the psych ward

Has anyone here actually tried AA? Anybody think it actually works? I've been in and out of it, and everyone I go back I feel like I'm finally ready to commit, but after a couple months it just feels kinda preachy and fake and end up missing the drinking

id use the pamphlets to make it sound like i went to my mandatory probation meetings.

i liked them during rehab but could never willingly walk into one. i thought about it before relapsing but when you're a NEET with more money than you know what to do with there aren't many reasons to stop drinking.

i hate to doublepost but just wanted to add:

na meetings are how junkies get connections in new towns

ed3293  No.501


That's bullshit, if you're a junky you'll always know where to get your shit. There's always shit where there's prostitutes or casinos or hobos, no matter where you are. If you go to NA asking for connections you're risking your ass getting whooped, and if it is a serious group you'll be kicked out.

That's like saying that people go to AA looking for drink buddies. What you say might be possible in big groups or in areas infested by X substance. Like, I used to go to a big group and I've met people that used in the same places that I did but we weren't friends, then I quit that group because it sucks and there are no rules, people just idiotic shit. I go to other groups and people say smart things.

da2741  No.504

I've been to a few AA meetings, but my experience is mostly with NA, which I went to for 5 years. I stayed clean the whole time, did all this shit you're supposed to do (steps, sponsorship, regular meeting attendance, etc.), and I can confidently say I wouldn't recommend 12 step programs. It's a borderline religious cult that is stuck clinging to an outdated "treatment" method that is laughably ineffective for how widespread it's use is. Seriously, the success rate for 12 step is abysmal for what is supposed to be the most popular addiction treatment. The ultimate goal is to come to know God, give your will and life over to it, and then spread how you did it to other members to help them do the same. The term "higher power" is often used to get less/non religious people interested, but it's all really about God. There are nonsensical or useless slogans repeated constantly, and what little literature there is gets read over and over again to convince people it actually has some merit. Now as some anons said, there can be wildly varying degrees of quality depending on the meetings you go to. Everything is based around the same literature though, so you're still gonna hear the same shit, there will likely be more fucked up shit mixed in with it at the worse off meetings however. And you will meet some fucked up people at these meetings, even ones that are supposedly "working the program" and preaching the word like a good member.

Now I did stay clean for 5 years (except for nicotine and caffeine, which both groups seem to think are just fine despite being drugs too), so obviously something worked right? Yeah, not drinking or taking drugs is what worked. You don't need a God and a social club to accomplish that. What 12 step does well is give you a lot of shit to do that doesn't involve drinking/drugs. You can find new friends/hobbies, and work on improving your life to where you don't want to get fucked up all the time without the 12 step meetings. There are also actual medical treatments based on science you can invest in if needed. If you are already religious or want to be, and are fine with not drinking at all then maybe you'd enjoy the 12 step life. You can improve your life and learn to booze responsibly without it though.

It's been working for me. The people are fucked in the head though. I will go with the literature any day. I tried making friends there, but a very low percentage of them would I hang out with. Sorry, but if there's a difference of 30 IQ points, then there's going to be a communication barrier. I'm just going now to 'check in' every few days, not to socialize.

>be cured of the long term effects

Depends how you define effects. You'll always want alcohol and you'll always be tempted every time you see a bottle. There will always be a little part of your brain which wants you to become an addict again and all but kill yourself because life will, at times, seem truly impossible.

Physically, you can get better. If you've been a heavy drinker for a long time (more than, say, three years, although the time is shorter if you started underage), then you've probably dashed your hopes of being a normal human being. You'll never run track or have a career in the NFL, but that doesn't mean you can't live within your means and be happy. And I can tell you, if you don't stop, you'll be in diapers by the time you're 35 and a vegetable by 50.

go buy a ounce of some high cbd indica and get a piece since its not like you'll be able to roll. Use the bud to help you sleep and deal with the worst of the shakes and some of the 'emptiness'. You may even be able to eat/sleep/drink which are some of the most important things for withdrawal recovery.

Alternately you could do some shrooms/lsd/dmt but I don't know if I would want to do them when in the middle of withdrawls, that will probably guarantee a bad trip; yet ego death is usually what it takes to cut cold.

I've tried what I think is everything:

- Playing with BAC levels

- Speed of drinking

- Set/setting

It seems like I'm just not getting the good feelings I used to get from drinking: warmph, feelings of calm, disinhibition, increased emotion (unless its bad emotion).

More wisdom: Check out a BAC calculator and be very careful if you're going to go over .2 BAC. Up to .25 BAC you will probably be fine, but it just gets riskier and riskier and in my opinion it has NEVER been worth it. I probably hurt my brain by going over .25-3 BAC so many times, and there was no benefit at all - except to learn not to do it.

In case anyone cares, I've actually figured out how to get the magic back. It doesn't last for very long, though. I'll keep experimenting. It brought back all those badass nice hazy feelings I used to get when I first started drinking. But it only lasted about 15-20 mins.

In my country there's a cocktail that we call "Sol y Sombra" (Sun and Shadow) that factory workers like to drink on the mornings to start off their days, so it ain't quite faggy.

It's quite simple too: 50% anise, 50% cognac. If the barman asks you what the hell is that, it won't be hard for you to explain how it is, no matter how drunk you are.

I've been trying to get into Whisky the last few months and I've had some mixed results. I'm looking for a decent, affordable Scotch.

My last bottle was a 12yo Bowmore, but I don't think I enjoy peat/smoke like I imagined I would. Kind of a bummer.

So who here has had fucked up dreams after drinking?

Usually after drinking three fifths of best horse over a 2-3 day period, I start having really bizarre dreams that I can't discern from reality (when I'm dreaming, at least).

They range from me going about my usual business with odd scenarios taking place, being outside and seeing horrifying shit in the sky (UFO's, giant faces, melting sky/getting sucked up and falling back down), people with deer heads/antlers popping out of every door I open. But the most common is I dream I'm laying in my own bed and I'm unable move and I'm screaming for help. I've literally woken up from these dreams screaming. Sometimes there is a figure in the corner of my ceiling, crouching there that I can only see out of the corner of my eye. Sometimes I hear strange music in a language I've never heard before but can understand and the lyrics are singing about killing me.

What the fuck is going on? Are these demons? Is this just my conscious telling me I should stop drinking? Has anyone else experienced anything even remotely familiar?

It's so bad for me that every time I dont drink I get stuck in the same state. I get sleep paralysis and keep having fucked up vivid dreams.

006109  No.534

Forgot to answer your question in my post. To add, I drink every fucking day so when I detox the first day is usually just physical symptoms like shaking or chest pain. After that the sleep paralysis, which is what you described as laying in bed unable to move kinda dreams. Add all that to be generally unhealthy it's pretty much a week of hell and then you get depressed. Not the kind of depressed where you are all sad and emo and shit. The kind where you just cant feel anything and are meh towards everything.

All this happens because it's your body readjusting to not being drunk. Both your body and your mind have to cope with reality and it fucks you up. Thats why most jails or rehabs keep you supervised for a bit after checking in because this shit can lead to seizures if you have been drinking long enough. You said 2-3 days. It only gets worse the longer you binge.
