    think of how you feel the next day ... headache, no energy to do anything but lay around and nap, the strange desire that you want to put something in your stomach but no matter what you eat or drink (unless it is alcohol) nothing satisfies it. And it is not just 1 day it is like 3 days until you can start feeling back to normal again. Those sick feeling the next day, ugh, why did I do that or say that. Think of how it just eats away at your muscles and deposits fat into your liver and veins, how it makes you old way before your time. Think on how your drinking effects others. Think about how much it costs and how much you spend and what you could have bought .... think about it. Now think about how not drinking feels. How not drinking feels the next day. Think about how not drinking allows you to control the situation all the time and not be out of control. Think about how cool you act when you don't drink. Think about how much more empowered you feel when you don't drink. Think about how much money you saved. Think about it....

    I have a drinking problem .... I don't drink enough!!
    Seriously, anyone of us who drinks beer has a drinking problem as the hops in beer kills testosterone. More specifically, hops is extremely estrogenous. Look for brews made without hops. Tough I know, 99% of commercially available beer is made with hops.

    OP: I hope you beat back the urge successfully. Also I hope even more that you went after help in a better way than posting in a forum like this. Gay sites of any kind bring more than their share of un-funny, un-helpful BS; I'm surprised somebody hasn't posted some kind of "comedy" meme yet. icon_rolleyes.gif

    Alcoholism is only comical when you're not living with it yourself or haven't loved someone who's afflicted. My only addiction is to cigs. But I can't kick that crutch to - literally - save my life, so I feel ya. There are people in my world who have fought "the bottle," and are winning. (They've been alcohol-free for many years. But the fight starts anew every time you wake up. It CAN be done though.) It's a non-issue when one of them, or anybody who prefers not to drink anything stronger than water/juice/milk/soda, shows up at my place either for a party or to just hang with me. I can take or leave beer, and rarely touch wine or harder stuff. Why so many people choose to drink as much as they can whenever they can has always been a mystery. Kinda pathetic really, once you get past the college years.

    You're strong to admit you'd be better off leaving booze on the shelf. But confessing a fondness for champagne in your profile description raises eyebrows as to how seriously you either have a real problem or sincerely want to change. If you do, you can enjoy all the effects of "bubbly" minus the alcohol with any number of sparkling ciders and juices. You've got the corked bottle, you've got the fizz, you've got the sweetness, and the buzz? Most of that's in your mind anyway.

    Best o' luck.

    I can't afford any addiction including alcohol but the only thing I can say is if I drink I prefer getting drunk aka completely wasted- hopefully that's not an addiction.

    i don't understand why people think stop drinking is a good thing.

    & i don't understand how people can go on the internets being sober either.

    doesn't make any sense to me.

    I'm Jewish. We don't have a drinking problem. At worst, we develop an urge to nosh.
