Yes, very true. As I said above alcohol never helps in that way. What alcohol does is lower your inhibitions and strengthen whatever emotion your feeling. So, if you are feeling miserable, you'll just end up feeling more miserable. And uninhibitedly so.

Although, not that any of you are wrong, but I feel I should add some balance here. There is something between a raging alcoholic and a teetotaler. It is possible to have a more or less healthy relationship with alcohol without being either. You can drink for fun, with friends or whatever without it being something negative.

Not that any of you are wrong, not that any of your choices are wrong, but I do feel we are getting caught up in the extremes here.

I'm not saying you're wrong, Blue, or that there aren't people who do that.  But almost everyone in my life who claims to just drink for fun does so several times a week (many of them on a daily basis) and in moments of greater honesty are pretty clear about using alcohol to try to escape from stress, trauma, or something of the sort.

Me too. I can't escape my dependency on air and water, but I'll be damned if I let myself become dependent on anything I have control over.

Alcohol can be used to release stress after whatever is causing stress is over. It's called happy hour. But it should not be used as an escape from stress. That's just digging a deeper hole.

I was talking to the German at my work today about Korn. (A German 'beverage' Nagual once introduced myself and some friends too one Hogmanany many years ago- one passed out after sliding down the fridge against which they had been leaning, without noticing I may add.
One slid slowly under the table not to be seen again, I am hazy on exactly who, and a neighbour who was there spent a day near comatose and throwing up purple vomit.
I can't seem to recall what happened to me. scratch drunken )
Apparently its viewed very much like a German buckie. I was so pleased when she said that and even more so at her shocked horror Very Happy

Nah, if we're going classy we should get you some sparkling wine. (After all, Petty is paying.) Nod



(And no mixing it with anything. Suspect)

Using good sparkling wine in drinks is tantamount to sacrilege. Mad

I think mixing good liquor with flavored soda is just as bad. I gave my room mate a sampler pack of fine bourbon once, and he went off in search of coke. If I had a button to make his head explode I would have used it.

cheap liquor and sparkling wine is fine for mixing.

I think there's a bottle of Babycham somewhere down the back of the couch from a Hogmanay party in1978- will that do?

if we're going classy we should get you some sparkling wine. (After all, Petty is paying.)- Blue

Now! Less of that! I said I would buy round not take out a fucking mortage!!! Evil or Very Mad

'If I had a button to make his head explode I would have used it.'- Halfy

I quite agree- I don't even like folk that add water to whisky- may as well just go piss on the distiller personally Mad But you have to make concessions for the lassies Halfy Nod

They can mix in a fine peach nectar or a hand made ginger ale; but coke, royal crown cola and the whole lot is strictly off limits! Evil or Very Mad

Lager and lime is just dandy. So long as it ain't a Corona, Budweiser, Coors...

Corona is possibly the worst beer on the planet. the only reason it survives is someone first came up with the idea of lager and lime using a Corona.
