One night drove when I should have

nothing unusual here for my part of the world, except maybe i started a little later than my peers (16) and hit it a little harder (went through a period in my late teens of going through close to a pint of vodka or whiskey most nights out).

Have done the blacking out, have driven home without knowing how, woken up without the odd tooth. Y'know.

These days i drink mainly decent whiskeys and rarely to anything past mild tipsiness. Can drink socially but try to watch myself. Parental alcoholism was a major factor in a pretty disastrous upbringing but i like to think i've got a reasonable handle on how i use it these days.

Streep? That's where I'm a-striking! (darraghmac), Thursday, 1 March 2012 02:18 (eleven years ago) link

Voted "occasionally". Had five pints tonight, but like Darragh "part of the world" skews the defintions. When I go home I realise that I'm never the most drunk, and that's one reason I'm dubious about moving back to Ireland.

In retrospect I had a problem in my early twenties linked to crippling social anxiety, got in trouble a couple of times and made a bad impression on lots of people I could otherwise have got along with fine. These days I stick to beer and good whisk(e)y and there aren't many opportunities to get absolutely plastered. But for better or worse, the rush of a night in the offing gets me every time and I get too much pleasure from drinking with friends to ever consider giving it up. I pretty much never drink on my own though.

I'm ~6 months cold turkey after many years of over-indulgence and it's been great! Very rarely tempted to go back. Unfort I have to go to a fundraiser thing this Sat night with dozens of casual friends who will be drinking like fish and I'll have to deal with dozens of well-intentioned offers of drinks. Would rather skip tbh.

Maybe the non-crackheads, junkies, and acid freaks didn't click the crack/heroin/acid threads?

Maybe the non-drinkers don't come to ILX.
