I've looked it up before, according to American medical standards if you drink two beers a night you're an alcoholic. It's pretty ridiculous how low they've set the bar.

A few thoughts from the thread title:

- Is drinking "too much" partly dependent on the culture/geography? As in, would people from Russia/Germany/USA collectively giver higher/lower numbers as to what's acceptable? Leaving places out where it's against their views and/or religion because they'd obviously say one is too many.

- Are there studies that give a definite number on what's "too much"? I'm sure that varies on the persons size + the type of alcohol but am curious. Is one or two 5% beers every night too much? At what point is it really affecting your health long term.

Obviously if you're drinking to the point of blacking out every night and ruining relationships/jobs I think most would agree you're probably drinking too much there.

Canada is absurd too. Perfectly normal to drink 15 beers a day here, every day. Plus lots of whisky

Holy fuck. Where do you live? 1800s Upper Canada Village where alcoholic beverages are the only potable liquid?

A buddy of mine used to manage a bar near my apartment, so I used to hang back after close with the employees and a few more regulars, get hammered, sleep on the bar, and then go to work the next day still half in the bag. Good times.

My drinking problem in 2014 was legendary. Wake up shaking having panic attacks and horrible existential dread hangovers every morning, then slam 3 "nips" or "airplane bottles" of 100 proof peppermint schnapps to feel normal. That kept me feeling good for maybe an hour or two, and then I would continue to drink those little bottles or Bud Light ___-A-Ritas until around mid afternoon. From there, I would pass out wasted in bed until early evening and continue the process all over again. Then I'd pass out at night and repeat the process yet again in the morning. Would eat about 1 slice of pizza and 1 cheap leftover pastry from roomie's workplace per day and that was all I ate every day.

I stopped that drinking habit cold turkey in August of said 2014 hell year, and the abrupt shock to my system gave me a permanent anxiety and depression disorder. I was pretty anxious and sadboi to begin with, but after the shock to my system from going cold turkey, it got amplified like 1000x and now I can hardly hold a conversation or leave the house unless I'm on drugs or something. To this day! 4 years later! GOOD STUFF, drinking is great & life is but a dream @_@

therapist joe says quitting booze didn't give you those issues goku, they were there already and you used drinking to cover them up.

Oh and I forgot to mention, despite my insane drinking problem in 2014, nowadays I can drink like a normal person. It's pretty cool. Got other fuckin' problems, though!

I generally start drinking by 2 or so in the afternoon and end up somewhere between 6-10 tall cans each day. Then when I go out/hang out with friends I'll get activated and drink way more.  Longest (by far) I've gone without it in ten years was around 9 months. I'm at that point where I'm feeling weird physically and anxious all the time and then repeating the cycle to make myself feel better.  My financial situation is always fucked and skating is feeling worse and worse.  I'm gonna try to do two weeks off then see if I can hold myself to 3 days a week but based on the past I don't know if I can balance it out.  I'll keep checking in on this thread to see how dudes are doing.

The longest I've been able to do is 11 days. For whatever reason, day 3 is always the hardest.  Weird thing was last night I had a dream I was trying to get beer from a store before they closed and I succeeded.  Then I woke out all bummed on myself.  After I realized it was a dream I was pretty psyched.  Then later today I started trying to rationalize having a desire.  "Well it's been three days, I should celebrate." 
I left work a little early and drove home before I could do anything stupid.

I'm glad I was not bad enough to where I had to worry about DTs or anything.

Way to make it through.  Still holding up?

On day 3 right now and I definitely want a beer.  Trying to use money-saving and "getting in shape" for motivation.  Went to the gym yesterday for the first time in a while which was nice.  Was hoping for a boost in energy right away but have still just been feeling lethargic, anxious and bummed.

I don't know if it's considered as an alcoholic, but I was definitely a problem drinker for more years than not. When I worked as a bouncer 10-12 drinks a night was considered pretty normal, and when I moved and got a different job I still was pounding 3-6 a night, sometimes in replacement of dinner (a poorly thought out plan to lose weight, although it worked). It generally made me over emotional, moody, and looking like shit, plus usually vomiting 1-2 a month.

After I got out of a bad relationship I actually toned down my alcohol use to once a week about a year ago, if that. I've been really cautious about drinking in excess. I'm realizing that since I'm in a better mood overall now it doesn't have the same affect on me now maybe?

According to my lady the only couple of times I've been real drunk I started speaking only in spanish, which seems pretty harmless.

Now I'm just making sure not to drink to try and escape reality (that's what weed is for) and I've only had one actual hangover in the last year, and that was from a trip to New Orleans.

Pretty good.  The anxiety/lethargy/depression is very normal.  I've been taking CBD to chill me out.  I also took 2 sleeping pills the first week just so I could go to sleep easy.  If you go to bed at 9 and get up at 5 or 5:30, you'll be tired naturally then you don't have to take sleeping pills. This is especially true if you are hitting the gym.  I like these too (see below).

I have also been doing intermittent fasting each day.  I eat a big meal at 12, then another one at like 6 or 7.  Eating 1000 calories at 7 makes you too damn full to even want to drink beer.

Also, watching youtube videos that show people really drunk or going through alcoholism can be helpful too.

^^^sounds great for a cold haha.  I usually like to run a bunch of hot toddys when I'm sick

Thanks for the tips Pugmaster.  Been wanting to sleep in as late as possible the last few days but I'm gonna try and force myself to get up by 7 tomorrow.  Also bought some of that magnesium calm drink for tonight.  I suck at sleeping

I rarely get sick, I think it's from fire-bombing my system with booze every night.

Staying at my mom's tonight, need to find a way to discreetly crack tallboys to put myself to sleep

Turns out I got too loaded last night, fell asleep in an awkward position, pinched a nerve in my leg, and now my right foot is temporarily paralyzed for a few weeks.

Naturally, now that I can't skate, I've spent all day in bed drinking.

The depression/anxiety and the fucking ~ anhedonia ~ from abstaining from substances is the hardest part, man. You feel like you can't ever have fun again! The "PAWS" (post-acute withdrawal syndrome) can go suck a fucking egg. Any other things you guys like to combat it, besides CBD and the obvious (yet insanely difficult) exercise & healthy eating?

Kratom isn't bad.  I highly recommend buying the empty gelatin capsules to put it in, because it tastes fucking terrible.

Oh I've been taking kratom for like 4 years, it doesn't do much for me anymore haha.

You can't just sleep PAWS off, it lasts for at least a couple weeks but usually several months :(

I enjoyed my PAWS for 2+ years.

Anxiety was so bad I pretty much cried a couple of times. To cope with that shit I developed som OCD-esque tendencies, which led to another set of problems.

Any way, just hang in there and try to do things that are positive to your health and mental state. I'm, by no means, a fanatic of being 100% sober but I had no choice. I'd rather suffer hard than go back to that shit. If you feel like switching to oils and kratom is the only thing preventing you from suicide, go ahead.
