does anyone here take a drink?
I’m not meant to drink, but after the few days I’ve had I’m definitely at the bar tonight
I occasionally have a beer or two. Nothing crazy. Although, I have been using a lot of whiskey lately for tooth pain.
im having a few cans now, and enjoying it,
only 11 days left for my one year sobriety, so NO
I hit my one year too!!! It was in September sometime last year I drank.
Yay for us!
i can handle the effects of drink
The only two stores in town that sold beer both closed. If I want alcohol I’ve got to hitch hike six or seven miles to the nearest store that sells it.
I don’t drink…
I drink every once in awhile
I dont drink a drop - Haven’t in decades
Rarely maybe once a year
Been sober from everything else for about two years or more but its been about year and a month since I drank alcohol.
I shoot coca cola.
I’ve been sober for the past ten years. However I might take the odd single shot of whisky once in a while. I don’t think it is any good to drink with the APs.
I’ve been meaning to ask you how long you’ve been sober
I’m 11 days sober, you’re 11 days to one year.
What a coincidence!
But tomorrow you’ll be 10 days away and I’ll be 12 days sober…so we’re going in opposite directions
No not anymore, due to meds. It can cause symptoms. Not even a little. Not even once in a while. Why take that kind of risk. It will cause problems in the long run. And in the mean time the goal is to be symptom free.
I drink 1-2 times a week. When that happens i drink a 1L bottle of red wine and enjoy the music or a conversation with my gf. Sometimes i drink 1 beer after a stressful work. It helps. It relaxes me and make me enjoy things. I like to be sober too. And i like to drink too. I enjoy it both. Im not an alcoholic i can stop, but i need to “unplug” myself after a stressful week thats why i drink.
Also alcohol helped me get trough my darkest times. When i was bullied and i was bullied a lot at various workplaces ( not at the current workplace) and at school and this happened way before i got ill and alcohol helped me with that it eased my pain and made me forget about that, at least for the time i was drunk.
I like to give myself this treat to enjoy a little And life without alcohol isnt bad either, you just need to be positive, alcohol just enhances all that
get anxiety and panic attacks and feel a episode coming on when the buzz rolls through its not good.
won’t even be drinking on my birthday next month and let me tell you its the F#cking best feeling in the world not drinking after drinking heavily for a year!
$50 for a case of coronas here i’d go through 2 cases a week saving a fortune mate no joke would drink the 2 cases in about 2-3 days than sleep for a few days and be depressed and withdraw
stopped when I got arrested had 1 bottle of wine and a 6 pk in 6 months
