I am surprised I did not see this topic before
Well, but I won't head off topic, I'll try to explain my situation with alcohol.
I like to drink togheter with friends, simple as that. Alcohol for me makes me very happy (and very stupid), but I yet have to get a rage attack or something while beeing drunk, I mostly end up talking shit and having a good time. There are of course situations where I would wanted to do things different, but as AA says I have to accept the consequences my actions brings - you canot just say that alcohol is to blame for the shit you did last night.
I started drinking at age of..hmm 16 I think. I then tried beer, and I of course got hammered. I was at a home alone party and were going to impress the others by drinking much. Little I knew that 12 beers could cause an catastrophe bigger than the WW2... I am not going into details, but it where horrible. Luckily for me I did not lose any friends that night. I appologized to the involved parts, and we settled it the week after by making me paying for most of the alcohol
I yet have to come into a fight while beeing drunk, the most damaging thing about me drunk is the things I say. At most times I think about what I say, but while beeing drunk I say things as they pop into my mind, something which the mayority things little about.
I have also not lost any close friends due to alcohol, but I know about 6 people from my class that have lost their life due to alcohol and driving. Sad thing, but at same time I simply canot forgive them for drinking and driving, as harsh as it might sound, "they had it coming". I swear, if I ever am sitting on with someone, and then find out he/her were drinking before driving, I will smash out all the teeths to that person.
Enough of the rage attack, you get my point, do NOT drink and drive, or I'll make sure you get yourself a new shithole
What I drink? hmm.. strong stuff, like liquor and stuff. Might not be strong for you, but things with 38+% really makes my day, I just have to controll the consumation. When doing it right I am having awesome nights, where I have energy and happines through the whole night, and laughing / running around happy. On the bad nights I just pass out or canot remember a shit... LUCKILY that happens not so often as before, as I have learned to somehow controll the consumation. The military might help aswell, but who knows, I am a ****ing misserable little ****
So, erhm... actually an post which does not include whores or rallypacks or even clubbing baby seels while talking about Scirocco Island and whormhole driving.. I must be losing my mind...
