Alcohol


Anyone else find that anxiety gets worse in the days after a night out? This has been the case for me lately and it sucks as going out on the drink is one of the only times I can interact well with others..

I know the feeling. Thought my head was going to explode at work today... Maybe it's time to knock it on the head.

The problem with that though is finding something to do at the weekend.

Yes exactly. I drink occasionally and feel able to talk to people about anything and then the next morning feel terrible about what happened even though nothing bad happened. Only good things happen usually when everyone's drunk, but the day after i think of what everyone's thinking and how i've embarrassed myself, that's the usual sh*t.

Yes, I often do. The only time I do not, is after nights when I was also smoking marijuana.

I think it is the body going through detoxification, literally changing our brain chemistry. Dehydration is another major factor.

There is a dirty feeling afterwards. It is hard to describe. It's like you're sure you embarrassed yourself but you're not exactly sure what you did that was embarrassing.

Your choice is simple: join us and live in peace, or pursue your present course and face obliteration. We shall be waiting for your answer. The decision rests with you. - Klaatu

I do not get the "dirty" feeling associated with embarrassing myself, I can handle my own actions quite well. I do let my own emotions get the better of me, and this fact alone is why I should not go into certain public surroundings or go near a keyboard. I usually say or do things I regret, but whether they are immoral or seen negatively is open to interpretation. They are usually controversial.

I will not hesitate to tell someone off while intoxicated (if interrogated), and I seem to speak my mind more. I can dwell on these encounters for time after.

I think handling yourself and letting your emotions get the better of you go hand in hand. Part of handling yourself well is not letting your emotions get the better of you.

Maybe, but when other people are rude to you, it is hard to say... Be rude.

I do not jump up on tables and do not get kicked out of bars. This is what I was referring to. I do not cause fights, and I do not pick on people for no reason.

I'll let you respect your opinion. I do get worked up very easily. Sorry. This is why I'm here. I thought I would share.

It's not somuch that I'm thinking about embarrassing myself the night before...my body's reaction to a hangover just seems to be anxiety. It's to the point where I just can't find words, stutter and talk like a retard.

All fun and games though, eh?

I have chosen to taken time off drinking this year. I have however put conditions.. I can drink at weddings and engagement parties. And I had my first one last weekend. I remember being two drinks in and thinking, I would be having as much fun without the alcohol, and then I woke up the next day and thought, was it really worth it.

I would recommend taking some time away from the drink. Accepting that things will be a little bit harder socially, but do it anyway. You have the strength with or without the alcohol. Just push yourself.
