Default So what is deal with drinking.......

All my life I have stayed away from alcohol, mainly because of the abuse I saw from my father to my mom when he was drunk. But I do drink heavily about 2-3 days out of the year, as much as I like the first hours of drinking, I feel that they are not worth it, there's to much after math to deal with.

Last night I left class early with the idea of getting drunk, there was no one to go with me to the bar, so I bought a bottle a headed home. I think the main reason why I decided to drink yesterday, was because I was feeling depressed with all the shit that is going around my family lately.

Anyhow I started drinking about 9pm and by midnight I was completely trashed. I think I fucked up even more when I decided to take a hot bath before bed (what a fucking idiot). I was in bed by 12:20 and little did I now was going to be back in the bathroom in 15 minutes trowing up everything inside my body .

Thank god I threw up, if not I would be feeling even worse right now. What pisses me off even more is that I knew that today I had a busy schedule and I still decided to drink. I already took excedrin migrane so the headeck is gone, but I still feel like shit (any advice :dunno).

I think maybe the reason I get so sick is because I rarely drink, and when I do it, I tend to abuse it.

Anyway I got to get back to studying.... Damn I feel like shit .

asprin and gatorade my friend. that will help. along with some rest.

only drinking 2-3 times a year and trying to put a whole bottle down tends to not be such a good idea. try beer next time as it takes more to get drunk. you feel it coming on a bit unlike liquor which can hit you like a ton of bricks.

also, drinking because your depressed NEVER turns out well. just not a good idea. i've done it and regretted it, its just bad mojo.

just my $.02 for now.

i say this out of love:

YOU ARE A MUG, YOU MUG!

as you said, you had a busy day lined up for today, and yet last night, you were technicolour yawning on the big white telephone.

it is called a self indulgent path to destruction.

your family situation is for whatever reason provoking less than happy mental feelings. this is obvious but not tangible. for you, what is tangible, is a twisted stomach, a throbbing head, vomit in your nose and being one step closer to saying 'oh no! i am becoming the bastard my father was!'

well if that is what you want for yourself, then fine. frankly it smacks of self obsessed nonsense to me, not only coz you do it; but then you write about it in here. feel better now?

this said, and don't stress my words, they are there to stimulate thought in your aching mind! i mean no offence. just 1 fact for you:

humans are uber intelligent, in that they have remarkable perceptive skills. booze and narcs are used by us (more than any other creature) to skew this perception, to earn us a break from 'reality'.

it solves nothing, but gives us a brief 'time out'. so getting fucked up on anything is natural, but it is not a solution to life's trials and tribulations, coz when you are bollocksed, you are not in 'real life'.

cheers!

I could not agree more with you, but at this point I have grab my bags and move on. Things are not easy and well to put it a way last two month have been a complete disaster. I am quite aware that getting drunk will not solve any of them, why do i do it? who knows...

Actually worse . But on the other hand I had a dream last night that I been wanting to have for about 5 years and it was so fucking real. So at least it was not all bad.

The funny thing is that myself I am actually a clean person (to a point), at 25 I am yet to use any illegal drug. I know that I am very vulnerable person and have a extremely addictive personality so I have decided to stay away from any of them.


To be honest I was waiting for your Brit response , you always have a way of saying things, some amusing and some not so. This one was right on the dot and a much as I would love to tell you "FUCK YOU", I know I cant because you are 100% percent right on your writing.

Thanks for the input

Thanks, already did the aspirin part and later on when I get some courage, ill get up and buy a Gatorade.

Just a note, I did not drink more than 3 1/2 loaded drinks, Bacardi-0 with a touch of orange juice, what like half a bottle? I would have to check. I would be dead if I drink the whole thing

Alcohol is the worst thing for you when you are depressed...basically your just adding more depression for that is what alcohol does. Initially sure it gives u a buzz but ultimately you end up feeling as you do..so thats normal. Keep in mind alcoholizm is a disease. Im sure u understand that part. As far as your parents and fam situation goes, learn from it.

Next time you get depressed try go seeing a movie or something simple as fast food helps really. If you smoked weed that would be better than drinking for sure. But ultimately if u learn from this experience with the realization that whatever is troubling with the fam will work itself out without your getting depressed(for it always does) then u will grow stronger and the next time something like this happens...it wont.

That's my main problem, I will only drink either when I am down or in a very special occasion.
The good news is that now I am feeling better as far as my fams situation goes for, I guess I just have to set my mind to what has happened and go from that. My main thing was even though I knew that it had happened, I had created a mental block and denied to accept the situation (stupid, I know). Last night I woke up and realized that she will not be same person EVER, but she might get a bit better at least to talk.

As far as other issues goes, I guess just like you guys said, learn from them and move on.

Throwing up means my night/day was a success. It gets harder and harder as the years go by, have to push myself and set goals.

well i am glad that i failed to rile or offend. it really wasn't the intent. so good. i can be a bit blunt on such issues, as such topics are usually complicated by imposing personal elements etc. best to cut to the chase, avoid pleasantries and 'call a spade a spade'....

the issue of booze is an easy one for me to remain unempassioned by. i have never been much more of a 4 pint a night drinker.... the bloatedness sets in long before the alcohol blood levels get dodgey. wine suits me much better.... there was a time when a bottle of vodka was the staple prior to club nights, but frankly, it just sent me to dark places where i would conspire to murder! so i stopped that sharpish!

being a stoner was much nicer. it allowed the ready dismissal of life's problems as it provoked thought processes which went down any number of varied and rapid fire tangents. you almost acquired a subconscious ability to say 'fuck it' when regarding those problems you had no control over. not before long, this ability to live with the uncontrollable became sustained beyond the 'high' and into reality.

this capacity of the herb to me, is another reason for why it is illegal. booze, something that provokes intolerance and violenc is allowed; but the passive herb is not. and yet in prison, the complete reverse is true! why is this? a population is better manipulated if it is distracted by worries about stuff, than if it is able to recognise those battles which cannot be won.

just a thought!

i hope spidey is sober now??
