Hey that's cool. I'm into getting anal sex but I'm not gay.

I am the type to be adventurous and spontaneous, and actually pretty socially irresponsible.

But other than that though, very open minded. Like, friends say I'm fun to be around and by friends I mean people I just made up.

I wouldn't get a tattoo either but it's not cause i mind them on other people. I just can't think of anything that would be meaningful enough to me I'd want it tattooed.

I don't drink alcohol at all because I don't like being drunk (I did it a lot as a teen like everyone) and I don't like the taste of alcohol anyway. Ok well that's not really true, those past few years I've picked up girlie drinks. The kind that are really sweet and in which you can barely taste the alcohol. but I probably don't even get the equivalent of like 500ml of alcohol in me within a full year.

Raymond Chandler said you should get drunk once a year on principle so you don't let yourself get snotty about it. I got snotty about it a long time ago. Last time I was 16.

That's called alcoholism. There's nothing glorious about it. But you have the excuse of being young. When people are still pulling that shit past 30, it's probably time to get on meds or at least seriously re-evaluate your life.

I don't know about this "at that age, that's unlikely alcoholism."

Drinking when "socializing" and "only beer" - heard that before. Fast forward and I realized the guy I lived with couldn't only drink 14 0.5 beers in a night out, "for fun", there was an unfunny side, too.
Never saw myself as an alcoholic, either. Never drank alone, no problem to go without it for weeks, 19-year-old girls simply weren't called alcoholics, no matter if I drank like one.
It's called party.
Drink the same amount at 30 or 40 and the health checklist will say - alcoholism.

Yeah. I had an ex who pretty much got wasted every weekend (and once in a while in the week too...only thing that stopped her doing that too much was fear of losing her job). Never drank at home but got wasted every time she went out, not just slightly drunk. I stopped following her in her nights out early on (after once freaking the fuck out about where she'd disappeared to, i found her asleep on the doorstep when i got home)....but that didn't help of course (because she really could have used someone to look out for her in her state...) That's pretty much (kinda indirectly) the reason we split. It's hard to stay in love with someone who comes home incoherent and then pisses the bed.

People tend to see alcoholics as people who are permanently drunk and drinking at home and all that, they don't have to be. If your main hobby outside of work days is getting drunk, i think that's a form of alcoholism for sure.

really fucking terribly. he was popular but a bum. he was drunk all the time and never had a job, then his unemployment ran out and we let him live for 2 mos without paying (and being a dick about it anytime i asked said all i cared about was money etc) and then i said he had one month and at the end of it he said that someone stole half his money (he had about 80 dollars which wasn't enough even if he doubled it) so i threw him out

since he was popular he basically told everyone i was the jerk and my social life never recovered and i sit here today bitter, angry and alone

I never found fun in drukenness even as a teen.. I'd start feeling pretty nauseated early on, never puked except but once but felt like it a lot. Then the day after it was worse AND i'd have a horrible headache. And as miserable as i am sober, i was worse drunk. It didn't make me happier, and didn't make me better socially.

And anyway, back then i didn't have anxiety problems, now whenever i feel im not 100% in my normal state i panic. Last time i got close to tipsy i didnt like it. So not drunkeness for me.

I got shitfaced on alcohol and anything else I could get my hands on whenever I could, from age 14 onwards. I've puked more times than I can remember, about half of the times I drank as a teen, I ended up spewing later on.

My limit is three standard drinks. Any more than that and I'm going to feel horrible - but I don't start feeling horrible while I'm drinking the 4th drink noooo that would be too easy. No, usually after the second I'm in the zone and ready to get seriously trashed so I knock back two more and I'm halfway through my fifth when I start to feel ill - then I try to drink through it until I throw up. The alcohol poisoning lasts about 12 hours.

Also, if I drank anything and then smoked weed, I would puke. I had to smoke weed then drink. That way I would not be so manic about drinking and was good to go if anything else was going to be introduced later in the night.

see that's exactly what i'm talking about, I had a jameson and coke just earlier just cause why not (i didn't buy that jameson) and I made it too strong and drank it too fast then I got slightly light headed and flushed then I started feeling anxious which lead to nausea and headache. I can't relax with alcohol, it stresses me out. If I was a drunk, I'd die of a panic attack. I try not to be so square and fail miserably.

I used to drink a 12 pack in an evening as a teen and still remembered the night before. Now I drink an inch of whiskey and freak the fuck out. Whaddapussy.

28if used to call the combination of drink and green "twisted." I generally experience the same thing though; smoking and then drinking is usually ok. I think it's easier to regulate how much more you are getting fucked up when you are adding beers or whatever. For some reason the other way around is much more likely to end badly for me. The synergistic properties of the two drugs are more potent this way or something. Once I'm already drunk, the addition of THC in my brain is likely to propel me into previously unexplored dark nether regions of the universe. It's like 6 drinks becomes 12 instantly. Getting the uncontrollable spins is the worst

I've picked up loads of british slang in spite of myself because that's where my girlfriend hails from (though she was raised half there and half in michigan).

The thing is since english is not my native language anyway, i don't really think about it, as a non native speaker you tend to just soak expressions in no matter where they're from and i think it makes it more alright too. But you know.... i don't say the words in a british accent (yeah that would work with the accent i already have) because that just makes one an insufferable cunt (used here in its genderless british meaning) to do so i'm afraid. And no one says brilliant anyway except on british tv I think.

See that's how i learned to drink. In small town northern quebec we started drinking at 13 because theres nothing else to do and the only way to do it right is to drink your whole case. If you're not stupid you bought a 6. If you're stupid you bought a 12 (and yes i was bying beer at 14 and no one gave a shit, i remember buying some on national holiday which meant there were some cops around town so the store owner let me out through the back....nice example for the youth..yup yup).

I'd get drunk on anything between 6 to 12 beers which is just fucking stupid obviously especially when you're a teenager (i dont even know how it is i never passed out). But i thought that was the way to do it. That's probably why i stopped at 16. After about 30 times of this i'd felt i'd had enough for a life time.

I rarely drink anymore; if I do it's one or two beers here and there, usually when we're cooking out or at a BBQ.

If the stars align and the kid is at the grandparents and we are up for imbibing, then I'll dip into some flavored vodka and get tipsy, but I am also able to stop at that and just be happy with a little buzz. But even this is super rare because B has problems with drinking and, y'know, I care about her and don't want to encourage what she has trouble controlling.
