How do you deal with Alcohol?

Postby Occvlt » Thu Sep 19, 2019 8:14 pm

I know many of us abuse substances, but this question is more specific:

If I have important things to do, and work sometimes, I am capable to fully ignore the need of drinking. But If I am free of time, alone or with people, boredom leads to the need of drinking and getting tipsy because it feels funnier compared to be sober. Tho I relized how stupid it is to spend such amount of time and money on it.

How do you people deal with it?
Sometimes I wish to control it more in such ocassions, spend it in a better way, but boredem is just too big. Any method to keep it in control?

alcohol is an excuse for me to act on my thoughts. it's my absolute biggest risk factor in regard to reoffending. if I do it I try to do it moderately and alone.

how to have self control? g idk, if u were using it merely to get out of bordem I don't see how self control would be an issue, unless it already is. but typically the only people who can't drink moderately or can't control it are trying to escape uncomfortable feelings. maybe bordem.. probably something more.

Alcohol doesn't seem to have much affect on me. I'm pretty much the same person while drinking as I am sober. The more I drink the more it affects my gross motor skills obviously, but in general, it doesn't really change me in any significant way.

Unlike most people, I'm not a very inhibited person naturally, so I don't need alcohol to become less inhibited. Everything I've done while drunk, I've also done while sober - aside from walking around in public with a knife in my hand. That was the exception. I've never done that while sober. Then again, I did take a knife into a therapy session once, but it's not like I was walking around in public with it. Though, there was that time I took a hunting knife out in public at a shopping center, but that was to hand to a butcher over the counter so he could sharpen it for me.

Anyway, the point is... fuk, I don't even remember now what point I was trying to make.

In summary, I deal with alcohol pretty well I think. I don't drink till I black out anymore and I seem to be able go without it easily enough when I want to. I don't seem to get sucked into addiction like other people do. I can crave a drink when I'm bored or stressed, or when around others who are drinking, but I can just as easily go without it too.

Keep exercising them eyeballs. I'd hate for you to have fat eyes.

damn.

alcohol changes the hell out of me.

i am very put together irl so a couple beers and i start trolling harder than i do online by threatening and harrassing ppl, go from calm as fuk to raging and back again, etc.

im chill as all hell, but my mind goes straight to the gutter. so if i am provoked or am in a situation where i can troll someone, i go 0 to 100 real quick.

i remember my ex said "u always joke about killing me, but ud never do it, pussy". i just looked at her while sitting on the bed. just chilling. but it was pretty uncomfortable because i had to control my thoughts and behaviors. i wanted to act on them just to show her im no joke, but figured i shouldnt........ so i have self control while under the influence but she called the cops on me ultimately i forget why.

I drink in my free time and when I am bored, and or feel bad..No never at work.

Perhaps 3 times a week if I can.

And, my reaction to it is basically what I think my true borderline, random and fuked up self is.
Thing is, I can control myself, at one point I was alone ..which I usually am, and after getting drunk af.
I still walked home through cars and somehow survived.

so yeah, I am probably the weirdest $#%^, but hey that's all folks.
