Does anyone here take a drink?

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 :cry:

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 :slight_smile: And life without alcohol isnt bad either, you just need to be positive, alcohol just enhances all that :slight_smile:

not anymore.
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

I just drink beer and only when I’m feeling bad. I get a six-pack and drink the whole thing to get drunk and not feel bad anymore. Usually I feel bad on average once or twice a month.

I’ll have a beer once in a while when I feel like it. I prefer stimulants. I drink coffee and monsters everyday.

Locking in accordance with the site guidelines. @san_pedro, you post a lot about drinking, hoping you’re going to talk to your treatment providers about it.
