Add me to the list of folks who have never heard of "Dry January"

/and don't plan on ever celebrating it, either

Pinnacle Point: I have never heard of dry January, but then again I blacked out all of January.


I never heard of it either. And anyway my January was the wettest on record: I found there are a few brands of cheap vodka that aren't painful to drink and that don't make me sick or give me hangovers. Voila! Half my waking hours were spent boozing, the other half drinking enough coffee (sans ETOH) to wake me up enough to enjoy boozing. They kind of faded together starting around 4pm EST, of course: you don't switch abruptly from coffee to liquor, you pour liquor into your coffee (till that gives you a tummy ache anyway).

This "blacking out" thing, I've never done it. What I've read on the web says it happens when you gulp a whole lot of alcohol on an (at least almost) empty stomach, which is hard for me to do because booze makes me hungry. In fact between it being too damn cold to take the dogs for long walks, the calories from all that ethanol and all the extra I've been eating, my "fat pants" are getting too tight for deep breaths. What a quandary: do I suffer the pain of trying to eat less and lose some or do I buy bigger pants and have to drink nothing but the least unpalatable dirt-cheap swill Rite Aid stocks all month?

Someday I might try to black out just to see what happens. It's too bad there's nobody around here trustworthy enough to keep me safe & out of trouble who's also dumb enough to put up with me when I'm THAT drunk. (Like having a hard time getting a good grip on my wee-wee to pee-pee drunk, y'know?) But of course a video camera would be obligatory too, so I can find out what I'm like when my Executive is totally out to lunch. As it is I usually have a fairly good recall of what the drunk was like for me but no idea at all of how it looked to others. With my luck I'll probably just get puking-on-my-lap drunk and wake up to remember every idiotic second, plus with a gig of video I can't bear to watch more than a few minutes of, but it might be worth a try.

Or maybe I don't want to know what being too drunk looks like, whether I remember it or not? Have any of you ever seen video of themselves being 8.3 sheets to the wind, and what was your reaction?

My drinking is definitely "moderate". 1-2 beers most nights, 3-4 or some Jack or tall Bloody Marys if I'm feelin' feisty. Except lately I've found 18-oz bottles for $1 even, which makes it cheaper than 6- or 12-packs, so I get two of those now. Granted, they're Bud, but I'm po'.

NewWorldDan: Cerebral Knievel: No.. you are not drinking enough beer, and if you are located in Virginia, North, or South Carolina, and the outer banks of both of those states,  Washington DC, Baltimore, Baltimore county, or Tampa Florida..  you must immediately go out and purchase AND consume A six pack of Legend Brewing Co brand Brown ale.

your very health and well being, as well as my pay check REQUIRES you do this.

It's been almost a decade, but I did my part when I lived in Richmond.  I'd tell  you to get your product on Minnesota shelves, but honestly, the local micro-brew scene here has just exploded the past 5 years or so.  Summit, Surly, Fulton, and Schell can reliably be found on store shelves, but the other dozen brands you pretty much need to go to the brewery if you want some.  Ok, Schell isn't really a micro, but they're still doing some good things these days, and Grain Belt is a lawn mowing kind of beer if ever there was one.

Also, I home brew and have about 15 gallons sitting in the keezer right now.  I think I'm getting adequate beer consumption.


your service has been noted Dan... and your name shall be on the scrolls for when the worm comes..

I've already been doing that. And two other guys.

Of course that may be why my liver hurts.

Sadly, as per medical professional standards, that makes you (and I) heavy drinkers.

Stayed dry successfully for January, first full month dry since 2007.  Sleep patterns became more regulated and consumed 3 books for the month rather than the usual one-a-month.  It wasn't a big deal.

The main thing to say after 31 days without beer is "thank god we invented beer."
 
2014-02-02 02:53:54 AM  
Weird. I've actually been drinking more this January, not less.

/it's been a difficult month

New England Journal of Medicine: 12/11/97 Volume 237 , Number 24

Study by The American Cancer Society:

Alcohol consumption and Mortality among middle aged and elderly adults. Over 490,000 men and women were studied over a ten year period. Lengthy article detaiing their methodology. Practical upshot is that non-drinkers have the highest mortality, those who consume 1-2 drinks a day have the lowest. Those who consume >6  still have lower mortality than those who abstain. This is death by all causes including liver cirrosous, slips in the shower, auto accidents, and jealous husbands.. Deaths specific to all forms of cardiovascular disease (the leading cause of death in America) continue to fall off the more you drink. ie. was lowest among those who consume >6 drinks a day.

I guess the hit or two of green I take a night also makes me a pothead. Ah well; such is the life of a junkie.
