GL arguing with someone that is in AA. They basically convince you that alcoholism is a disease like any other, not an addiction like the rest of us know it to be.

You can't put down that drink through will power?  :orly:

OP, I didn't read this whole thread but I want just want to say that I feel for you and what you are dealing with.
Life is short as it is and when it's cut even shorter by our own hands, then it hurts all the more.
I don't know you. I probably never will; but from what I read of your Original Post I can tell that you are well meaning and hurting too.
I am grateful that you find what you need in AA. It has helped and still helps millions of people.
What really matters to me is the condition of your heart.
Although, I'm a relative noob at this forum, I have a few years on you and I've learned the hard way that alcohol is a major hurdle to some.

What I want to do is encourage you to stay on the right path.
It may have taken you a minute to find it but you found it.
It's post's like this that make this a great place.
A place where broken people can come to find like minds and kindred spirits.
We may be a bunch of 'lost souls' to the mainstream; but I'd take one of us over one of them any day.

My heart goes out to you OP. I pray only peace for you and that you will realize that you are still 'fresh' on this journey we call life.
You are young and the whole world is waiting for you.
AA isn't the end. Sobriety can be the beginning.

There is one thing, and that is love.

:heart:

I didn't realize that this thread was so old. :facepalm:

Still, I stand behind my post. :peace:



And hey you, thread revival guy; unless it involves you, leave these old threads alone. :grrr:

Only love in the end.

Nothing wrong with bringing back old threads.

Far more knowledge than most new ones.

Look how respectful people were to one another!

Listen... I have been an alcoholic for many years. I am a rock guitarist so drugs and booze go hand in hand. It took me a long time to get it under control. I had 2 DWI's and a hit and run that I spent 14 days in jail over. Not to mention the fines the dents and scratches on your cars. And let's not forget the fines... I paid over $20,000. 2 years of AA was real fun (not), All of these people praying to God that they won't drink. I would have been fine with it except for that higher power bullshit, but you do see how it happens.

Rule 1. For alcoholics... never drive!
Rule 2. Never ride with someone who is drunk.
Rule 3. Do not frequent a public place while drinking.
Rule 4. Never try to walk home from the bar drunk. You will end up with a public intoxication.

All of these carry a minimum of a $275.00 fine and at least one night in jail.

OK: Here's how I handle it. I drink 4 beers every day and one double Vodka and cranberry.Yes it does give you a nice buzz. If there is any weed I have some of that as well. I drink the beers and the vodka over a 6 hour period. And yes I get a pretty good buzz.

If for some stupid reason I am staggering around or just a little out of hand I go to my studio and work on something else.

I'm a believer that there are some people who just cannot handle it. To those I say... you should smoke pot and lay off the shit. It only leads to trouble.

DWI's really mess shit up. What if you ran over a kid, or killed a young family? How much therapy would you need then? Do you really think you would ever be OK?

I've told you how I handle it and it may be different for you, but if you are going to continue to drink find a way to do it where you are not hurting yourself or others.

Rule 5. Bumping a 7 year old thread; time to put down the drink.

Only joking mate.

  Luckily I got my drinking out of my system after a couple years of binge drinking in my 2nd/3rd year of middle school. Literally "in" school half the time as a handful of us (lived in a very rural area those years with class range of 20-40 kids). Between cheap vodka & a general feeling the high was in no way worth the hangover.
First recreational drug was cannabis & quickly went back to that as my DOC throughout high school.

  Now if I want to get down I have a pod or two and I've got a nice high for almost 24 hours of thebaine, morphine, codeine, & a whole bunch of opiate alkaloids grown in a state as natural as my cannabis flowers. For my brain the high is much more enjoyable (opiates give me a strong euphoric , want to get after whatever I'm doing effect) If not taken in the morning it will keep me up late.

  Alcohol now will just make me sleepy very quickly, with the only exception jack/coke as the caffeine keeps me from wanting to take a nap.

I think that one has to become alcoholic to truly appreciate alcohol.  The disinhibition eroding away the wall one has built for hirself until one is balancing on its apex, the winds ov life itself endlessly swaying the body as it simultaneously embraces the fury and craves that it cast one off the teeter unto the death that is obsessed over.  Lost at sea until awoken in the desert, the dry storm yet again reminding ov the vital concretion that desire has amassed and striving for its annihilation amongst the waves.  To appreciate the floridity ov life one has to realize its fragility.

I strongly disagree that one needs to become an alcoholic to appreciate it. The act of an alcoholic in and of itself is unappreciative to alcohol.
I love a jack n coke every now and again, but having a basic understanding of drugs/pharmaceuticals in general, as being my previous study, combined with how my body physically reacts to it just doesn't make sense to be putting in my body on a frequent basis. Let alone in large daily quantities. But hey if it works for you go with it. "What might be right for you, may not be right for some."

The rest of that post is way to specific, and factually inapplicable to blanket just anyone with. Too much individual uniqueness in the way one has the ability & choice to perceive.

In my experience most understand the only guarantee in life is death.

i am always amazed when i take a step away from the bottle i realize wow this is a highly corrosive powerful substance that really affects my life beyond the drink i am currently having/had.

when i used to be drinking it was like a lab rat hitting the lever for another with not a thought of what comes next. then it builds into today being affected by the drinks of yesterday.
