So pit, do you drin k excessively? Do you have a dtinkin problem? OR are you in a mutual relationship with alcohol? Is drinking a social thing with you? or a dependent?


Or do you not drink at all? Do you feel addicted to some 'drug' that helps you get thro thhe week/month/year?? Or do you disregard drugs and alcohol entirelyhz?


Personally I feel that I drink often because it is a relief to the daily mondane life, and it helps me cope with shit. It's also a good social tool/.

I dont think this belongs in the drug thread becasue i want this to be a pit wide discussion and this is more geared towards addiction and the such

I don't drink very much. It doesn't do anything for me except make me depressed and misanthropic.

Is it because you're bored with 'normal' life or a normal day and you wanna get away from it?

Or just because you enjoy being high


@Zero, yes a couple beers make a shitty day beautiful for me

I'm the opposite, in that depressed & misanthropic is my natural state but alcohol makes me happy & sociable.

Crazy, right?

Use to be both of those things. I find that it helps me with depression and allows me to relax more easily and sleep better. All of those things are good, but i shouldn't have to constantly rely on marijuana to get those things. That's the bad part. I feel like if i stopped i wouldnt be able to get any of those things, so that's why i do it quite often. Almost everyday to be exact.

edit: I guess what i'm saying is that most of the time i don't do it because i enjoy it, i do it because i feel like i have to do it.

That video is smashing, and your threads have the funniest OPs, so im pretty sure we've had some bro moments

O had to watch that like 4 times before i realized my speakers were off

@Angus: I kinda feel the same towards drinking, it gets me through the week a lot. I don't smoke, but by the endd of the week ive had with the entirety of bullshit I've been through and to keep my spirits high i go out and drink. I think smoking would relieve a lot of my stress thou, idk

EDIT: I've definitely drank alone a few times, not on school nights though
But nortmally I try and stay away from the pit cause i cant really make threads or respomnd well

I only started drinking a few months ago. I'm a social drinker and I'd like to keep it that way.

I would only drink when I'm with friends or at a party. Drinking alone is just depressing.

EDIT: Oh and TS, don't take up smoking. It's disgusting, wouldn't relieve you and if you don't start, you don't have to stop.

This is a good point.

I remember when I had freshman iorentation, that one of the advisors stressed the point that we have to find something that we can do by ourselves that makes us happy


And she was right, i just needa find a way to kill the time and make a habit that i thorougly enjoy that isnt the least bit destructivoe

I love to get drunk and play guitar and sing with all my friends. Sometimes I can't restrain myself though. This one time, my friend found me half naked in the bathroom, lying in my own vomit. I kept saying "I HAVE A HUGE BONER" and "I WILL LOSE MY VIRGINITY TO A REALLY PRETTY GIRL."

I hate parties, but it's fun to get messed up with your closest friends.

The majority of my life is very hard work with college (I'm a genetics major) or hard work at a restaurant (I'm also a cook) or hard work at home (parents are very ill), so drinking or smoking Cannabis is a great way to get my mind off of it; to mentally recharge the batteries. Sometimes with so much going on, it can be difficult to take your mind off of the stressors. With a few beers, though, or a few bowls, one can just relax.

I think it's a deeper issue, and not knowing how hard it may be for this generation to relax than say, our grandparents. Our lives may not be as difficult, but I think our brain receives a lot of what happens as stressors, keeping most of us on edge more often than our species needs to be, causing this inbalance, and in turn, the need for a drug as a catalyst going from a stressed state to a relaxed one.

Just a thought.

well... seeing as im drunk right now lets talk! I just got home from a party in the woods, i split a case of miller high life and a fifth of vodka with my friend and i still can function properly. Maybe my tolerance is high or maybe i drink too much either way it takes more alcohol to actually get me fudged up. I also noticed whiskey gets me over the egde where i get suicidal and have a whiny cry fits so i don't party with jack anymore. Also on a side note Master of Reality is a kick ass album \m/

I agree with you on that. I think this generation definitely pushes a lot more on itself, along with everything that society pushes on it.

^^ Nice I just finished chilling at my old highschool friend's house drinking and playing poker outside. It's the best thing in the world to get drunk with your old friends after being away from home for so long.

Used to drink every so often, and right about the time it started being 3+ times a week it gradually transitioned to marijuana usage. I avoid drinking whenever possible, but if I'm getting messed up and that's all that's there, yeah I will. Most of the time I drink now I get very angry, marijuana doesn't do that to me and at least gives me an excuse for being clumsy and slow in conversation sometimes.

Also, I've smoked weed and written an essay before, and somehow it was extremely entertaining and interesting. I can't do that with alcohol, sorry.

I think I'm someone who would have a few drinks every night if I had the money. There's nothing I don't like about the effects of alcohol, and it allows me to just stop thinking so much. Having said that, however, I don't like getting drunk. Tipsy is good, but drunk, imo, pushes it into the realm of not being fun anymore. I know I need to be careful as I get older, though. Whenever I have money, I almost always end up buying alcohol and I know I could develop an addiction very easily, as alcoholism runs in my family.

EDIT: I smoked weed for a very short period of time. It was great to begin with, but after a while, just started making me anxious and I really didn't find myself enjoying it. Haven't had any in quite a while.

Vicariously I drink while the whole world dies.

But yeah I used to drink every weekend/every time we went out, then stopped pretty much immediately when I started smoking weed about 2 years-ish ago.. but I also stopped getting with girls on nights out round about that point. Being high + trying to get with a girl at a Place = unsuccess. And I'm a much better drunk anyway, I'm always happy as F*CK. I should start drinking again I think.

I'm a binge drinker. Well, I quit temporarily (for my weight lifting, not some life changing epiphany). Gonna have a huge cabin party in August though where I'll probably get ****ed up on anything with alcohol in it.

Define excessive. I wouldn't consider myself an excessive drinker at all since it's usually either social or a drink or two with a meal, but I still want to know what qualifies excessive.

You clearly have never had a mojito while sitting outside on a hot summer day. Even if you are alone, there is nothing depressing about that.

I drink once a week, sometimes twice a week. It's senior year and there's tons of parties.

Sometimes when i'm drunk and in a bad mood or just plain depressed, it doesn't really help. It keeps me up all night, like i'm half-asleep and half-awake in my thoughts.

Usually when I drink I have only 1 or 2, rarely ever get drunk. Been drinking occasionally for over 2 years, but only been drunk twice from memory. I feel responsible haha.

I'm sure that's about to change now though, being at uni and all...

About 6 months ago, I was getting smashed every other day because I was just feeling shitty for a month or so. But now, I hardly drink, although I will have a few drinks if I do have a bad day or whatever.
