    You don’t realize what a true alcoholic is. I know one who drinks themselves unconscious. They go weeks without even using a toilet. They walk miles barefoot to beg strangers for alcohol. They’ll even settle for rubbing alcohol & listerine

    I would drink a pina colada for the taste. There’s always the virgin version though

    Every night when everyone's settled in I like to sit out on the porch with a Guiness and listen to some Dylan before I go to bed. The world would be a better place if more folks did the same.

    TS i get your point but drinking socially 3-4 times a week doesnt make you an alcoholic LOL

    Way to throw a serious problem some shade....

    These peolple you talk about are just socially inept if they can only have fun when they drink, not alcoholics...

    I am certainly an alcoholic. But that's why I dont drink.

    Much harder to learn how to deal with the world sober. But much more rewarding.

    Pretty much everyone I work with gets drunk after work. They always show up the next day tho, mostly on time. Most drink all day Saturday and in the evening on Sunday. I drink at least once a week, especially if there is a fight on. I smoke pot regularly but right now I got The Jack strand, a heavy sativa that makes me fucking anxious as hell. When I lived in Poland they drank more than any other people I have ever been around.

    I'm not an alcoholic, I don't go to meetings. I only drink to make other people more interesting.

    Someone isnt really an alcoholic if they get through the day fine with out it IE no shakes or anything.

    Personally I never understand how someone becomes or functions as an alchi. For the most part, alcohol just makes me feel like shit. To the point were I have zero desire to continue drinking day after day. I cant imagine waking up day after day both hungover and in withdrawals.

    I'm more of a drink once every 3ish weeks and get absolutely trashed, then take 3 weeks off kind of guy.

    I would drink if I could, I suffer from chronic migraines (everyday). I haven't had a drink of alcohol in nearly 8 years due to this.
