i broke a pretty good period of sobriety

why does this feel so real and solid compared to healthy states?

i'm a more effective human being when I'm sober but there's a certian solidity about being drunk. it's real, and not hollow and artificial like the things i have to tell myself to get through the day sober.

feels bad man, but also feels good man

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.

There's good old Black Russian - that's incidentially my drink of choice - with vodka and kahlua. Or if you want to look classy the Alexander is quite good - bourbon, chocolate liquor and milky cream - but it's probably on the verge of faggotry - it's still great IMO

I have a question for /alcoholism.

what's your usual poison? Since before I could buy booze I'd always try out different drinks just because I wanna know (mexican Coke taste like pepsi due to the sharpness Corn Syrup gives to Coke).

So what do you usually drink? I aske for your usual cause who's going to shell out 100 plus bucks for a Goatlicker whisky or some such. In my experience

Rum:Baron Samedi, Kraken, Brugal, honestly I haven't met a Spiced Rum I didn't liek yet, Goslings for black rum. Have yet to find a Clear rum htat's decent, though Bayou was the closest.

Vodka,:Stoli, I'm going to start with wyborowa as my mainstay due to being a dollar cheaper and just as good as Stoli (well maybe a bit harsher aftertaste). Soberski is fine if you're on a strict budget but I'd spring for the Stoli (or Wyborowa)

Whiskey: Canadian Club, though I've heard Basile hayden is good (though it's more of Bourbon). Honestly this is my weakest section.

So what say you /alcoholism/?

For vodka, Russian Standard has impressed me the best.

If it's hard liquor and I'm relaxing, I like Scotch. Kirkland brand if I'm being a cheapskate since it's not bad. If it's hard liquor and I'm partying/staying up, it's gotta be Jägermeister and either Redbull or the Original Rockstar mixed in.

If it's beer, I usually go for a porter or a stout since I like black beers. Those are expensive though so my "cheaper" go-to beer is a Coors Light or a Guinness if available.

On the rare occasions I drink "wines" it's either a Nigori Sake or a Rose wine/light table wine.

Hey anon. I just broke 3 years sobriety a few months ago, and now that my tolerance is back up, Evan Williams Bottled in Bond (100 proof, ~$15 american for a fifth, bretty gud with coke or on the rocks) and Coors Banquet have been my go-to drinks.

7dab10  No.680

Unless I'm drinking with others, of course the default should be hard liquors. Also, I beg to be original here and I'd say my poison of choice is Grappa (and of course from Veneto). Better if Barricata. It's REALLY underrated, so you'll generally find some acceptable grappa for outrageously low prices (I'm talking Italy here, don't know if it applies abroad), it has quite high ABV (around 40%ABV - 80 proof), a good characteristic taste and it doesn't even give you hangover

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.

Once I started smoking, I now mostly drink when I can't get herb or in social situations, although I think that may just be part of why I drink in the first place. Cannabis just tends to go better with me than drink, it's never caused vomiting or anything of the sort that happens when one drinks too much.

I used to, but unfortunately as far as my job and the government is concerned, I'm not allowed to (which sucks because I enjoy micro-dosing).


I hated the stuff the first couple times I used it because I didn't know my "friends" were trying to get me high as fuck on what they considered a "strong dose" for them (despite being chronic smokers). Once I discovered that you could roll small joints mixed with tobacco or just eat like 5mg of edibles and get the relaxed/hungry feels without the heavy paranoia and such, I became a stronger advocate (while still fucking hating pot heads).

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.

Anyone dance the edge of functioning alcoholism?

12 posts and 2 image replies omitted. Click reply to view.

7bf3c1  No.466


Not that guy but...

There is a difference between finding success and sustaining a life that you want to live.

If you an actual Alcoholic, your life revolves around alcohol whether you are sober or using.

I think what you are referring to is not alcoholism. If you can control it and only use on weekends or casually with work and stuff intertwined that is not alcoholism.

I'm saying when you're at your worst, you are slamming hard alcohol straight. You go to a bar and are never satisfied because you need something stronger. You start drinking when you wake up and don't stop until you pass out.

The point of the thread is "functioning" alcoholic and I'd argue that there are varying degrees of this. What exactly constitutes functioning? Does it mean getting to work and having a passable social life but little else?

You can be functioning in that sense for a while. Some longer than others but it always catches up with you at one point. You sleep in on accident, you get in a car wreck. Something happens that wouldn't have happened if you had been in a sober phase.

>what happened to me is an eventuality for all

That's not what I said you dumb nigger. If you can't control the impulse of drinking 24/7 then you're an alcoholic. If you don't have the impulse or physical dependence of drinking 24/7 then most probably you're not an alcoholic.

Indicators of alcoholism are pronounced withdrawal symptoms when not drinking, not being able to stop drinking, not getting any hangovers anymore and drinking at improper times (morning, work, driving).

If you can drink and lead a normal life good for you, you're a normal person, but don't go out saying that you're a "functioning alcoholic" like it's a badge of honor, alcoholism or addiction is not a joke. If you can sort your shit you're not alcoholic.

Primary cause of a 'hangover' is lack of sleep, poor diet(I always eat like shit when I'm drinking), and dehydration.

So I just treat myself like I treat my patients, without usage of controlled substances of course.

How I wish I could give myself a bit of Fentanyl and Zofran, even the worst hangover of all time would dissipate without a passing thought.

But to stay on thread topic, if I can't get an IV set, BRAT diet and pedialite cures hangovers pretty well, same procedure I use for when I'm sick.

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

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.

Unfortunately, you'll still be with us for a while relying on booze alone.
