Relax?
Well that would depend on your definition of relaxation.

I'd say only about 5% of those 2/3rds turn to drinking to "relax"

The other 95% are drinking to forget the horrors that are their inescapable realities.

Nothing wrong with some self medication if you don't have to drive anywhere.

SmithHiller: Do they drink alone or drink with friends?


They drink alone.
With nobody else.
You know when they drink alone
They prefer to be by themselves

"You know how most cops like to go out for a drink after work? Well, I kept moving on up... to the drink BEFORE work, the drink DURING work, and finally the drink INSTEAD OF work."

D_Evans45: FunkOut: If you can relax without ingesting chemicals to do so, you are a totes loseriffic.


If you can get by without habitually ingesting any thing, you are that much more of a man/woman in my book. It takes a pair of strong balls/ovaries to maintain sobriety after getting into a chemical dependence. Im jealous of all the people who can just go happily about their lives day in and day out without ever thinking about getting drunk/high. As a former drunk/junkie I cant remember a single day in years where I havent had the urge to soften the edges a bit.

/farking anxiety sucks


a former fatty once told me that he still eats cake, albeit in smaller servings. Otherwise, he went from being controlled by the cake when he was fat to being controlled by the cake when he was skinny.

i don't drink alcohol or do drugs and i never have. i've never been interested in it at all, i can't imagine the thought of taking something that will change my behavior or alter my perceptions. i like my behavior and my perceptions just fine. if i want to relax, i'll just listen to some heavy metal. i don't even like taking actual medicine.

I was going to say the other 1/3 work during the evening. I need a 9-5:30 or an 8-4:30 job.

It's only "after work" drinking if you start after work. I start BEFORE work.

"Employers should play their part and not actively promote an after-work drinking culture which leads into drinking more alcohol at home."

That's why I went into the music business, then into advertising. To perpetuate the AT work drinking culture.
