I did something similar last week and felt like shit the whole next day. Ended up throwing up finally at the end of the day after. It sucked, I'm sure I'm alright though, if not just a little worse for wear.

You would already be in excruciating pain if your liver had failed. Yes, you probably did some damage but there shouldn't be any delayed effects at this point. Maybe take a break from the booze though?

The taste, that is. Anything stronger than nine degrees — stronger than six if it's fruity or something — is vomit-inducing by taste alone for me. I have to force myself to down even fucking wine, not to speak of whiskey or rum. The only drinks I can tolerate are beer and vodka, and with the latter I must take utter care to not have any land on my tongue for the fear of ejecting the stuff back like an overfilled cup. For those who have the same problem: how do you deal with it?

Fruit punch gatorade, the other stuff, maskes vodka pretty well. Some ice ans can mix a lot of water with it and just masks the vodka taste even more, add ice.

Do you smoke cigs, that'll do it for some people. Whether they are actively smoking or not. Try this if you have listerine, only listerine, the strips work. Seems to almost fully stop the gag barf like reflex. For smokers who feel like barfing while smoking and or just drinking, Like to hear others opinions.

Today, at my addictologist/psychiater i told her that i was back to drinking regulary, not visiting NA and AA, and i'm feeling shit. She wanted to send me to rehab, but i can't afford it, so she told me to go to NA/AA every day, and start taking disulfiram. For those who don't know: disulfiram enhibits acetaldehyde dehydrogenase enzyme, so when you drink, acetaldehyde builds up and makes you feel like shit, this way you can't enjoy alcohol and you won't drink. I'd like to know if any of you has any experience with this substance.

yeah, i've been on disulfiram.

it's not used much anymore because there are better medications, though they can be expensive. it's also very hard on the body if you decide to drink anyway.

i am one of the weirdos who it doesn't work for. i could clean up a dozen beers and be down to keep partying. i have no idea why that is the case. anyway, i stopped taking it because the only reason i was taking it was to deter my addict brain and it wasn't working, and it was potentially dangerous. took it as a sign from my higher power that i am simply designed to obliterate myself with ethanol.

i still want to quit drinking, or at least get away from binging. it's expensive as fuck and so bad

I spent all day drinking yesterday, and when evening came i was really hittin the everclear pretty hard. i drank about half a 750ml of 151 proof, and about half of my 750ml 40%abv vodka.

i once knew a crazy old weed man with many weed secrets. after doing weed work for him for a while, one day he let me into one of his weed sanctums and let me try one of his ancient green dragon concoctions. i had a couple shots of the tincture made, of course, with everclear. it was foul beyond description. imagine the most bitter, chlorophyll-tasting wheat grass shot, mixed with the acidic burning fire of 190 proof ethanol. i had to gulp down about 6 glasses of water to barely keep from vomiting, but i was high for hours. would recommend (to non-beginners)

Booze sucks. I had been drinking for years until february, when I just decided to stop drinking. My average night saw at least 8 beers, and on the weekend at least 12 every night. I just drank a PBR tallboy and here is my review:

a) It tastes like shit.
b) The buzz sucks
c) Booze ain't food
d) Beer is more expensive than weed

Maybe I burnt out all the alcohol receptors in my brain and all that is left is feel bad. Compared to other drugs booze isn't as good in pretty much every quality except availability and social acceptance. It's pretty much like Robitussin that people have been tricked in to drinking by society. In conclusion, fuck you.

You should buy some of the charcoal exfoliation stuff. Put that shit all over your nose and peel it off, and then stuff comes up. Can't recommend it enough. Honestly I wish I had worse acne just so I could watch all of the things pull themselves out of my skin like glorious little sick magnets. Also, start using Cetaphil to wash your face and change your sheets regularly.

Sorry to doublepost but popping acne is very bad. If you insist on doing it, get a proper comedone extractor and only use it on BIG blackheads after a hot shower, or on whiteheads that burst after washing your face. Give up quickly. If it doesn't come out after two or three tries, let it run its course.

The reason that I say it is because you can damage follicles like this and cause a pimple to come back again and again. I am mostly over mine but there are still two or three places pimples will occur because a follicle or two is scorched earth after swelling, draining, swelling, draining...

True. Let's also add
e) it causes more long-term bodily damage than most other recreational drugs.
f) is addictive, causes awful hangovers and sometimes lethal wds

I started drinking when I was in freshman year of HS, currently late 20s, I probably consume like six drinks a day on average so not a raging alcoholic but no stranger to the hooch either.

It seems like most people I know either become more disinhibited/social when they drink or start doing crazy shit, but I feel like when I drink, it just shuts my brain down. I'm not particularly introverted when sober, but when I drink something happens where I lose the ability to hold a coherent conversation, and I become "ADD" i.e. I space out a lot and can't focus on whatever people are saying. I gradually get more and more catatonic until I want to lie down and pass out. It's a feeling almost like being dissociated/outside my own body. I also can't have sex if I have had anything to drink at all, I lose all ability to get sexually aroused. I kind of lose interest in whatever's going on around me.

I used to smoke weed and do coke/pills/psychedelics but haven't used any drugs other than alcohol in five years (due to lack of connects, I didn't stop on purpose or anything).

Does anyone else react to alcohol this way? Pic related this is how I look after like two drinks.

" Low amounts of endogenous (or naturally occurring) GHB, which do not reach pharmacologically active levels, have been detected in alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages."

It seems GHB is a naturally occurring by-product produced in certain alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages. It's no big surprise that it would be found in drinks. Hell, even our own bodies produce pharmacologically insignificant amounts of endogenous GHB. Yes that's correct, here's another example of an endogenous substance we produce in our own bodies which has been made illegal. Don't even like to think of how effectively the government could use substances we're all holding as a ploy to take away our freedom, if they really wanted to I bet they could make a criminal out of anyone.

Alcohol is a depressant phamacologically. Some people find it subjectively stimulating. It used to be called a stimulant back when a nip of brandy was considered medical treatment.

Sure, you *can* defend yourself with the argument you suggested, but that doesn't mean it will work.
Drug testing is only as important as the employer makes it. Even if you tested positive for meth or jenk, the worst that would happen is you being denied a job.
Basically, it all depends on if the employer cares enough to not hire you.

RE: Coconut Sharts
I saved the litre and a bit of coconut water for either saturday or sunday morning, i can't remember which day now because i was pretty fucked up the whole weekend. i chugged the whole lot before bed again but did not experience any sharts or even any loose bowel movements the morning after. this leads me to believe that either tolerance to the shart effect of coconut water develops rapidly and deteriorates more slowly or that coconut water does not induce sharts and it was caused by some other random variable not included in my experiments. with a sample size of 1 and only 2 data points my tests should probably be completely diregarded

if anyone qould like to be lincluded in further research on the matter please contact me by replying to this post, i check /hooch/ on average 2.9 days a week, so if this thread stays bumped and people are willing to take part i feel like we could have a major scientific breakthrough regarding this issue

This is something weird I've noticed when I drink. It doesn't happen all the time, but occasionally I will wake up in the middle of the night after getting drunk and I feel this very annoying restless feeling and lasts for like 20 - 30 minutes and prevents me from falling back asleep until it goes away. It doesn't feel like anxiety, it's just this weird restless feeling, like this terrible tingling that seems to be mostly in my upper body. Things that make it worse are trying to focus my eyes on something like my phone. Like reading something makes it 10x worse and the tingling will go to my eyes and head and makes it near impossible to focus on anything. Anyone else experience this?

I've googled this before, it's got something to do with a spike in glutamine.

Yeah, alcohol is a GABA agonist which means it promotes sedation and anxiety relief,, and so glutamine production is increased to counteract the effect of the alcohol and then when the alcohol wears off there is an abnormal level of glutamine which is an excitatory neurotransmitter and so there's feeling of restlessness, more brain activity, etc.

ethanol is a CNS depressant. when its effects wear off, the CNS surges in activity, which can result in excessive sensations/twitches/shakes (alcohol dependent people get "the shakes" when they arent drinking for this reason). its like a dam that holds back the flow of water, that when the dam falls down, a huge flood rushes out from behind it. i personally theorize that part of the misery of hangovers is the nervous system being hypersensitive due to the prolonged inhibitor being removed, resulting in excitation neurologically, increasing sensitivity to light, sound, motion, etc. just a personal theory about the hangovers, but i strongly suspect your restlessness is due to neurological effects of the ethanol
