Since the covid lockdown, I have been day drinking starting around 10am, drinking anywhere from 3 to 9 beers per day.

I'm not doing it to have fun. I do it to get through the farking day without screaming at people.

Am I cognizant of the potential issues and negatives of such a lifestyle? Absolutely. I was drunk in the army. I was drunk in college. I became a 6pack per week human for 15 years as I raised my stepson. I know the difference between the two states.

I currently don't give a farking shiat about any of the downsides.

Our country is ruled by nazis, Mama Nature continues to hint that we're farking up by killing us and there's now 42 million NEW unemployed citizens that are hurting bad in our country.

God damned farking right I'm drinking every farking day.

I tried it for about 20 years.  Sobriety is much better for people like me.

My life was better when I drank.  I miss that life, but I don't want to die.

For a long period of time I'd rather be lightly toasted on pot then buzzed or drunk off of alcohol.

From experience, the after affects of come off of being high over a long period of time was better then when I was drunk for a long period of time.

I've been drinking every night for about 10 years. Since I've been working from home I started drinking in the afternoon. I decided I didn't like where this was going so I stopped drinking all together 11 days ago. I feel so much better!

I smoke weed every day, but my body just can't handle that much booze. I could probably out-puff a lot of folks, but after like, four drinks, I just know that the next day is going to be a giant sh*t sandwich for me.

I objectively understand the psychological and physiological underpinnings of addiction, but I just don't "get" how people can get drunk every. f*cking. day. My body simply wouldn't let me.

born_yesterday: I was quit for 2 years. Then I lost my job in March. Cant smoke grass because of the risk of new hire drug testing. Found out I can still polish off a bottle of Jameson's in one sitting.


Hear and feel ya. Hope you find a new gig soon.

I remember a few of my spring breaks.

Well, I don't, but I do have memories of my stomach feeling like absolute garbage and basically wanting to die from the pain.  Also, at some point the tolerance gets so high it's basically impossible to get drunk and all you have is the pain and a feeling of not-sobriety but not-fun-drunk.

It's really really not good to be drunk all day long.

It worked out alright for Churchill. I doubt there is a day in his adult he was completely sober.
