Would feel uncomfortable if i didnt have 4 five percent cans in the the house after a four or five day bender anyway.
Helps you sleep and the next few day will be tolerable while cutting down.
Report scandanavian_haven July 28, 2017 1:14 AM BST
Prepared in all seriousness, as Jimmy says you really shouldn't be cutting it out altogether, it should be gradual because at 14 pints a night you're body system would go into shock, think that's what happened to Amy Winehouse. Good luck.

I'm just not the sort of person who can only have a few though annoyingly. 4 would turn to 8 to 12 etc and i'd be back to square one.
Will use this thread to give daily updates of any symptons/side effects or if i fall off the wagon. The thing is i can't imagine going out with friends or to a wedding etc and not drinking? No idea how im going to get through this. Always love/need a pint or 8 to be able to watch

Exactly pal, its a must to be fair. Thing is im a good laugh up to about 8 or 9 pints but after that i can become a total knob.
Sober me is constantly having to apologise for things drunk me's said or done and half the time i have no idea what
im apologising for. Its getting ridiculous now
Report Jack Hacksaw July 28, 2017 6:24 AM BST
You need to set up some mechanism so that you don't drink beyond your 8 or 9.  You'd have to work out how to do that.

Most importantly, I'd suggest having 2 nights off the beer every week.  You can pick the days.

I must admit that the report about drinking being good, sort of, for diabetes has cheered me up Happy  It also said that wine especially was 'good' for not getting diabetes.  Hooray! 

I think that wine is better for not getting diabetes because it is lower in sugar than other drinks.  I noticed that women gin drinkers did not fare well and maybe because gin is not normally drunk straight but with a mixer, probably sweet.

I used to drink white wine but switched to red and I find that lately I can keep to half a bottle of it whereas I can't do that with white wine Sad

Still off the beer. Moonbeam if im drinking with work the next day i'll just start drinking earlier in the day etc.
Been off tinder for a few days now as i've got my eye on someone again ha. I'm 33 by the way.
Yeah think ive been in self destruct mode since the break up with the previous misses but totally over her now.
I hear a lot about being alcohol dependent? But does this mean they're saying you cant function properly without it?
I dont exercise that much jack but the job usually wears me out.
Report Mc Moonbeam July 29, 2017 7:51 PM BST
ahh 33 i see ..
you probably are borderline alcoholic but i see you as a dangerous binge drinker!
the good things are you don't really resort to spirits yet .. you like expensive beer & mainly drink out with mates .. i started drinking alone a lot around that age Blush

what i mean is by drink is dependant is that drinking like you do your body will actually go into shock without it .. you'll be ok for a day or so (because it's still in your bloodstream) but when your cold out you'll start to crave it!

Dependancy also leads to increased tolerance .. your tolerance level is now extremely high which is dangerous as every time you drink you need more & more to meet your higher level .. this is where most drinkers turn to spirits .. you don't wanna go there .. i'd actually liken drink to a mild form of heroin it's so addictive long term but they market it all so innocently .. sold in every shop / supermarket etc. to the limit .. they want everybody addicted .. repeat customers Crazy

you need to cut down .. Drastically at first .. set yourself say a 4 pint/can limit .. then try get down to 2 in the week etc.

it's all about lowering your tolerance .. but at the same time realizing that you are still dependant to a small extent ... just how good one cold beer can taste when you really need one ....

I still enjoy a beer or two most nights (plus a koppenberg Tongue Out)  but it's about keeping it fun .. if i drink more than 3 pints it's not actually fun after that point anymore Happy

it also helps if you have something to keep your mind off it, i stopped drinking a lot when i found poker full time .. but if you want my honest advice .. and can pick up girls off tinder like taxi's (lol) i'd maybe get a few illegal substances in & have some damn fun Cool
