Says who!?

What about half your country burning to the ground? And half the remainder drowning in hurricanes? And half of your country's political infrastructure actively trying to destroy itself, but even more strenuously trying to destroy YOU?

We're not wanting for emergencies.

You're on the wrong website for those claims, subby.

I will ponder that over my gin and tonic.

I have actually cut way back on my drinking since March. Turns out I like sitting at a calm bar with a book and a cocktail way more than being sad drunk at home.

/don't worry, I've made up for it by smoking an absolutely ungodly amount of weed

We took back over 750 bottles and cans of beer to the grocery store once we could - this is fake news.

Well yeah, but they're harder to get.
Unless you have a connection.
Do you have a connection?
PM me.

Nope, my response was purely hypothetical and based on dangers of addiction.

The week I went into lock down was the one year anniversary of my last drink.

I'm still on the wagon, but there's a lot of smoke coming out of it...

I'm not sure that's much healthier.

Expert: Increased alcohol consumption no way to cope during pandemic

Really, you're telling that the Director of Missouri Center for Addiction Research and Engagement, Denis McCarthy, said that? I have to say, I thought ol' Denny would go the opposite direction.

Everyone I know is doing it wrong, then.

/ Looking into getting a medical card so when Missouri opens up dispensaries Real Soon Now I can swap about 75-90% of my booze consumption for cannabis.
// Literally for health reasons, damage from the alcohol aside there are so many calories in alcoholic drinks and fat's a farking killer, plus cannabis helps me sleep damn well which is a big deal for me.
/// It's also a lot cheaper.

If you're for real

1) stop reading the news. Seriously. Nothing will change if you stop. Following it's not 1/1000 as important or noble as lots of "I do it to be a good citizen" people would have you believe. If you're checking in more than once a month, it's not good citizenship, it's soap-opera tier entertainment. And I mean stop entirely. (yeah this is hard because that means Fark and any other news-centric sites, too, so maybe don't if losing the Fark community hurts more than having the news does). Maybe read Lost Horizon instead?

2) weed and sparkling water (club soda, flavored if you can't palate it straight, or mineral water)

Obviously ignore if not useful, I'm just some asshole on the Internet and you're you and know what's up with your life.

Lots of people love grain alcohol these days.  Who knew?
 
2020-09-17 11:20:47 PM  
That is factually incorrect.

I AM NOT AN ALCOHOLIC! I'm a drunk! Alcoholics go to meetings!
