ai worthwhile topic imo, surprised it was not discussed here, at least didnt find
i'll start off with my case. ive been drinking regularly since i was 16 (5 years ongoing) many times did i promise myself to slow down a bit, sometimes with small success, sometimes i would speed up instead. alcohols with over 7% stand for approx 1% of my alcohol consumption. theyre horrible. i dont really like the taste of beer either, more often do i curl my lips instead of drowning in joy.

when i was younger teh ethanol cognitive effects affected me strongly (never to a point that i would go fullidiot with no control, im rather cool-headed regardless of intoxication state). for like 2-3 years it almost doesnt do me at all. my mood and behaviour stay unaffected (i became very open and moderately brave person in sobriety so might be that) why do i drink? usually i dont know, i feel it as a blind habit more than addiction. just a very weak and easy high. i would be happy with drinking only on social events that would "require" it for small boost. i dont see any point to drink alone or with closest friends anymore, i regret it more than enjoy.

i experienced unpleasant and quite strong undiagnosed pain in stomach area that started on fem16 and reached a peak week later after mixing 13 500ml beers with couple energy drinks 2 times during 3 days. similar but weaker pain appears like once a month since then. even that didnt stop me from doing what i dislike (well it did... for 7 days)... gz blaze

it starts to bother me sometimes, i go tryhard now 8)
ive been running an alco-log to be aware of how much i drink since april 2016 but it would look pretty much the same since 2012

values in ml ofc, 1 bottle 500ml ofc

Good topic and post jblaze. Judging by the text it does look like it would be a good idea for you to try to do less alc. From the health perspective ofc (that probably applies to many of us) but also that you recognise it doesn't really give you anything or have a purpose. So hopefully you can stick to your plans!

What comes to my own situation.. well I should do less of it too, for the health reasons. I've been very on and off with drinking throughout the years (because of money and such) but let's say the past three years or so have been a bit crazy. And ever since I lost weight a year ago I feel like the effects are getting even stronger of course.

But unlike you I enjoy my beers. It's such a nice feel to sit in a pub and chat with friends and have a pint with nothing special going on. It doesn't really help that I also have friends working in pubs, I get easily dragged in there even if I'm alone, just to check how they're doing. And then it can of course escalate quickly. And many times I also stumble upon some familiar faces from the times when I was studying etc so now-a-days it really isn't that uncommon that I just go to a pub alone if friends not available and see what happens, it's always fun.

I haven't done that kind of accurate stats about my drinking because it's of course hard to keep up with all that stuff. But here's a common week pattern:

Sunday-Wednesday:
No alcohol

Thursday:
Usually three pints in a pub, it varies depending on the mood. I go to this pub with friends where there is a music room where people can play piano and guitars and when the jam is good I drink more and when it's boring I leave early. Also depends on the next day responsibilities. At the moment I don't really have much to do at work so last week I think I ended up drinking 5 or 6.

Friday:
Come home from work, eat something and then start either beer or irish coffee or something similar. I don't really have any plans other than that I will just drink at home, but usually something comes up and then I find myself in some party or pub with friends.

Saturday:
If don't have anything special to do or responsibilities I might wake up very late due to previous night drinking. If it's already like 15-16 o'clock then I just might start my day with some irish coffee thing and continue with beer and again see what happens. If I wake up earlier or have some things to do then I'll just do them and then start thinking what to do next.

Anyways I guess the point is that if I don't have anything special to do or have some responsibilities I find it hard not to drink, even if I'm at home alone. And tbh I think it has resulted in many good things. And like you it's not that I would need a drink for social things, I'm also quite open and talkative when sober. But now that I think of it I guess the thing is that when I drink I'm less judgemental towards myself. If I'm sober and I get some idea I can end up thinking "no that's fucking stupid don't do anything". But when I've drank some alc the same idea doesn't feel stupid and I'm up for almost anything and I feel like I have the energy to do those things and like I said I think it has resulted in many good things. Edit: not to give it a too positive image, it has also resulted in some things I don't feel good about. I don't know if that's good or bad then.

For me alcohol hasn't caused any physical pain or problems that I know of. But okay let's say it definitely affects my mental state and does some vtf things occasionally. So uh yes I need to stop too. But considering fem for example, I guess I will drink every day because it's fun and I have a short vacation and I'd like to just enjoy it however I want.

i don't understand how can some become an addicted alcoholic
for maybe 8 years i used to drink every day, typically 2-3 beers, but often much more with lots of additional brandy
a few times i was trying to figure out, when was the last day I didn't drink, and it must have been more than 3 months

these days i drink maybe 2 beers a week
I've never tried to stop, it's all caused by different people around, drinking way less than the ones before

thats nice to hear ville, it looks better than i could have thought based on your irc manners (maybe im not present enough there to put such conclusions though) keep the control :p

and milagros - loooking at the slim spectrum of boring alcohols effects im about to think the same. its strongly connected with users self-control and vulnerability to addictions

big part of society thinks that there is alcohol+tobbaco and farfar away are drugs. they think alcohol is a bit harmful but its legal so its ok but drugs? omg, junk! its very common way of thinking especially in poland represented by red-faced people with a shape of ball with moustache drinking notoriously. lack of drug knowledge is quite scary, but what can we do, there are no golden solutions when it comes to drug availability.

Usually something bad going on in life triggers it.

You need to drink a lot over a long time to get addicted, everytime you get drunk you push the limit of how much you can drink before getting drunk again. At a certain point in the process it will affect your brain in various ways, aggression, depression, anxiety etc. Then getting sober strengthen all these bad feelings, so you drink more to deal with it and the bad cycle begins.

I try the same rules as ville_j. It's not always possible, but I'm fine with my bearings. :beer:
