    If the question already became "are you drinking to have a nice day?" I'd wager a guess that the information is already out that I'm an alcoholic. But, I guess, technically, one possible answer would be "Oh no, god no! I'm not an alcoholic. I'm just really thirsty and for some weird coincidence I always seem to only have high-proof alcoholic drinks at hand when what I'd really want was clear mountain spring water". I would not put a lot of money on this working, but that would constitute an answer that at least attempted to not sound like an alcoholic.

    I've had a few bouts of daily heavy drinking, and known some serious alcoholics who drank too much for 10+ years. I think most alcoholism is rooted in a deep unhappiness or dissatisfaction with life, often linked to things like regret/trauma, which I guess you could say is related to a desire to not be alive, or at least absolutely hating being sober of course.

      Mostly true. As someone who drank like an alcoholic from the first time they ever drank on, I would say there are some who just have the genetic components that make alcoholism almost guaranteed if you drink. The first time I ever drank I remember thinking it was the most amazing feeling ever and wanting to be drunk every waking moment if possible. However, I didn’t do that because I still cared about social obligations. The trauma/regret is what kills you in the inside enough to no longer restrain yourself. When my dad died, I definitely drank wanting to die as well. Thankfully, I eventually realized that I didn’t actually want to die and got sober. So I believe there are trauma alcoholics and genetic alcoholics, and most are a mixture of the two. Regardless, all alcoholics become essentially the same over time regardless of why they started.

        I drink because of the trauma of watching all my hopes and dream get dashed to pieces from the person I trusted most in the world. I lost everything. I've been heavily drinking for 18 months now because it's the only motivator I have to keep going, knowing at the very least at the end of the day I still have getting drunk enough to forget the nightmare of my life for a few hours and passing out in a stupor to look forward to. If not for alcohol I may have killed myself.

        You're literally trying to do that with your cancer image and attempts at guilt tripping via parental disapproval and slow suicide.
        You can't prolong your life forever: you will die, and turn into worm food.
        Everyone and everything you love will die, too, you'll be forgotten, all your triumphs and tragedies will be forgotten, it literally doesn't matter at all.
        So, at most, you're trying to keep the cost of healthcare down, which is entirely pointless.

    "No, it's not nearly fast enough."
    Personally I enjoy the taste of liquor as much as I enjoy the feeling of being drunk. I started late in life and try to abstain from drinking enough to get a hangover. Also because liquor is too expensive in this shithole.

    This isn’t the way to get alcoholics to stop drinking. Most alcoholics know the health impacts very well, because they experience them and look into what they are doing to themselves. You have to get them to care about what they are doing to themselves and others, which is difficult.

          well, don't move on to wine or spirit drinking daily. going from beer to higher proof stuff is how everything starts spiraling.

      If you drink more than 1-2 drinks everyday, you're borderline. If you get drunk most everyday, it's definite. If you want to stop but can't, it's definite. If you have withdrawals when you stop, you're an alcohol. Those are some obvious ones.

        Most days I have at least 1 or 2 beers, but I only have more than that at the weekend
        I probably only actually feel drunk maybe 1 day a week
        I don't have withdrawal symptoms if I stop for a while

          only a spaz or uptight ""health professional"" would call this legit alcoholism, but be careful, many people drink lightly then move on to heavy drinking later.

        Hangovers depend on what you drink, your innate tolerance, if/what you ate the previous night, and how much hydration you got. I tend to get them more often because I drink liquor/spirits, I simply cannot get the beer in me fast enough to attain the desired buzz. Two shots of vodka in some country time lemonade is a great drink, if you've got a little lemon zest or powdered variant a sprinkling of that ups the pucker factor & flavor.

          They're more so due to drinking lots of alcohol in a short period of time, which is one reason beer doesn't produce hangovers as bad, since it's much easier to down wine and spirits. Hangovers are mostly a product of byproducts of organs metabolizing alcohol. Hydration and food/supplements only mitigate the effects the byproducts have a bit (effects being anxiety, lethargy, nausea, etc.). There are a couple studies suggesting B vitamins and some amino acid mitigate hangovers, but the conclusions aren't very strong.

            Anecdotal evidence isn't evidence but I'll submit it anyway, in my experience some fatty foods tend to limit hangovers, and making sure you drink water absolutely effects whether or not you wake up with your head pounding.
            I've heard the same thing regarding B vitamins but I'm about as convinced as you are, they MIGHT work but who knows.
            As for drinking quickly vs spacing it out yeah, that certainly has some effect on the potency or even manifestation of a hangover.

            Anyway this is Cinemaphile. Movies about boozing too hard? I didn't watch the Druk one that was memed about a year back or so here.
