Oh, I have no doubt that I'll be a serious alcoholic given a year or two or few.

What about you guys..??
Do you find it entertaining that you can still string a decent sentence together? It always makes me pleased to find that I can.

I drink a glass of baileys before bed every night to get to sleep, occasionally that is substituted with a half-bottle of red wine or, er, today, six martinis. If I am going out (or staying in with other people...) I drink the totally socially acceptable full bottle of red.

Alcoholism runs in my family... this is the first year of my life where I haven't cared to take enough care to avoid that fate. Strangely, the more unlike my immediate relatives my life choices and I become, the less pains I take to avoid being like them.

Re: How often do you drink..??


I almost never drink. I've been to maybe 4 parties, and drank a lot, but it didn't really help me social anxiety for some reason. The first time, I fell face first into a ditch and lost one of the lenses from my glasses, and had to be dragged back to the house, but I still didn't talk to anyone. Maybe it's because I was stoned as well. :/ The next few times, I just got really tired, and went to bed. Still very socially anxious. Am I not getting drunk enough? The last time, I drank 4 rum & cokes, 2 tequila shots, and a bunch of bailey's, and was still zip quiet.

I'm often think of buying alcohol to try and get drunk by myself in hopes it would work better.

Once in a while, and never more than 2 beers in a sitting. My Paxil enhances the drunk effect. I'm also a hard liquor virgin (oxymoron there)

Re: How often do you drink..??


I drink at least 2 shots of whiskey (usually johnny walker black or jim beams black, i don't like jack daniels, all straight) or 2 glasses of red wine at night. I tried gin straight but that sucked. However, I don't drink to the point of getting wasted, just enough to get me real tipsy. I think recent research shows that 2 beers or a glass of red wine or a single shot of whiskey is actually good for you.

Yeah, most people don't have the discipline to stop there though.

Re: How often do you drink..??


Very, very rarely. I cannot stand the taste of alcohol (especially wine!), it is so strong that I start coughing and can barely swallow it down. I also choose not to drink because alcohol has a lot of calories, and I'd much prefer to stay skinny. And another reason I don't drink...alcoholism runs in my family. I've seen firsthand the effects alcoholism can have on people.

Re: How often do you drink..??


I used to drink every weekend. Well I drank in excess every weekend. I hated the 2-3 days it took me to recover so I greatly decreased my drinking. I notice that if I get drunk my anxiety and depression increase greatly for 2-3 days after. Since I suffer from SA I cant really justify drinking like I used too. I do miss the old party days but I feel better now.

I don't drink. I have only ever tried wine and it gave me some strange spasm under my tongue, I think I may be allergic to alcohol.

Re: How often do you drink..??


I have no inherent desire to drink, but due to all the post- and pre-trauma I'm going through right now, I've discovered that alcohol suppresses trauma reasonably well, even though it's only temporary and not permanent.

I don't experiment in mixing drinks too much, but I found out that 1 part vodka (40% or 80% proof will do), 2 parts coconut juice, and 1 part 7-Up tastes pretty good, and gets me tipsy enough without feeling drunk.
