In the past months I have found myself sneaking off to the liquor cabinet on an almost nightly basis to get a nightcap. It's a terrible habit, and I'm sure that if it's carried on for long enough it will result in an alcoholism that is nigh-impossible to stop. I want to nip it in the bud. Comrades, what do?

 No.2925236

went to the free-clinic for a drinking problem and they gave me some pills to help wean off it. they give you the relief of having a drink. cheap pills too only like 30 bucks


 No.2925240

Cognitive behavioral therapy, or find another way to get high like weed. Some people say LSD/mushrooms/mescaline/DMT help them kick the habit but I've never tried and can't confirm. There's also a pill you can take before you drink that prevents excess cravings.

Get some "babicka" brand vodka, and keep a notebook by your bed to record any interesting dreams. (Babicka contains wormwood, the mild hallucinagen also found in absinthe.) Once you have a dream record, you can rework it into short stories, artworks, or whatever you want. The artist Henry Fuseli was said to have eaten undercooked meat, to get the same effect. Stick to one nightcap only. But you do need some vices, and one nightcap is a lot better than late night Internet porn trawls or whatever

all government health ministries say the opposite. the average liver can fully process the daily drink but not the occasional binge drink.

>Unironically, apparently drinking 7–14 pints (depending on your weight) a week is actually healthier than drinking nothing at-all.

i highly doubt its consumption is "healthier" than to not drink it at all. such claims are funded by big alcohol, just like how pro-coffee studies are funded by big coffee. my guess is they're playing the stock market.

If you don't have a physical dependency yet I would just get rid of the alcohol. If you do you should ween off and just quit. If you don't think it is actually alcoholism yet it might be okay to drink at social occasions, but never actually keep any around the home.

Throw all of it out and take a break from drinking entirely for a few months, reset your relationship with booze

I quit drinking entirely for six months and it really helped me reassess my relationship with alcohol, I now drink far less overall and pretty much never drink at home, but instead nearly solely at social events, occasionally I'll sit down at a pub and have a beer while watching the world go by if I'm in a strange town or am waiting on the train or something but that's about the only time I ever drink on my own now

You may have a genetic predisposition towards alcoholism and may want to take Naltrexone, an opiate receptor antagonist. It blocks the pleasant and reinforcing effects of alcohol by preventing the stimulation of opioid receptors and the reduction of dopamine release in the ventral tegmental area (VTA).

Naltrexone suppresses the euphoria and pleasurable sensations of alcohol. Alcoholics no longer receive a “reward” for drinking once they are on Naltrexone and are therefore less likely to continue consumption.

There appear to be no significant dangers associated with taking Naltrexone and drinking alcohol. Naltrexone is considered to have no abuse potential and does not result in the development of physical dependence.

while Naltrexone intervenes by blocking the "good feelings" from alcohol, you can also intervene by getting your dope hit other ways. nicotine (such as from vaping) or weed will help wean you off the booze by giving you a healthier alternative.

Speaking anecdotally here (and have talked to multiple experts on the matter), but I smoked weed every day for 5 years straight, currently 4ish months sober. I'm definitely not fucked up like ex-alcoholics tend to be.

I used to do something similiar some time ago. For a few months in my life, I used to get drunk on almost daily basis from beer. There is only one way to quit daily drinking - just stop. It's that simple. subsidizing it by stuff like pills is bourgerious habit of persuading yourself that you are weak and what you do is out of your control.

Do not worry, you are not alcoholic. If you were, you'd not fall asleep before drinking everyting you have till you pass out. Find a reason why you don't want to drink daily. Then simply stop.

I switch between drinking and smoking weed for relaxation/sleep so I dont get too dependent on either. Works good for me, an eighth lasts me 2 weeks and a bottle of liquor about the same.
