I was only able to start drinking again recently.
However, I was only able to drink beer and wine.
I miss whiskey. Among other things.

What would be the best liquor for someone trying to ease their way back into it?

I'm a 22 year old type 1 diabetic who has drank heavily for over two years just about every night. The last two days I've had pretty intense nosebleeds happen unprovoked, am I dying or just webMDing too hard?

What up, bro?
I got a letter from an attourny today.
The 99c liquor I tried to steal will cost me (my parents) 98€. What an irony.
My parents are going to pay for it because I have no money. Not even welfare.
I brought back some bottles to drown my sorrows in 10 delicious, cheap beer.
What's your problem?

Any of you guys experience seizures? Earlier this week I experienced a seizure and tremors like I've never had before. The only thing that helped me was drinking slowly throughout the day to constantly quell them. Next day I felt pretty normal, and only had ~3 drinks.

So how often do you guys get really serious alcohol withdrawals? Bad enough that you think you've finally done fucked it up?

6-8 months, though the severity of which escalated sharply about a month ago. I haven't been dry as I've been tapering to assuage headaches and tremors, and while my physical condition has definitely improved my mental health is getting worse.

twas two or three years ago that the 1.75L of my dear old grandad got discontinued. I miss him. every weekend it was the same, my boss would ask, " can you work?" and i would say "i cannot, i have to visit my old grandad." my earnest face and polite demeonor led them to believe that i cared enough about people to have extracurricular activitites outside of work . . . family obligations. that was never the case. grandads is cheap. grandads is strong. i did need my weekly visit to grandad, but granddad was just a bottle. i miss you papa of papas. as kentucky straight goes you were the best.

Anyone here a functional alcoholic? By alcoholic I mean drinking more often than not, regardless if it's beer or alcohol.

Anybody? Share your stories, etc. I drink Miller more often than not, while I'm not alcoholic I feel like I drink more than I should.

Woke up having withdrawals today. I'm sure I had em yesterday too, but hey I just cracked a beer and suddenly I felt all better and forgot about it. My hands are still shaking.

I wouldn't say I function though, but I didn't function before I started drinking either, so I don't really blame it all on the drink. Still, I have to quit. It'll kill me.

I'm watching the Chicago protests here:

But they're walking down around my old dorms, where I first started drinking, smoking, doing drugs, partying, and being free in 2008. It is a beautifully reminiscent experience. I'm drinking Captain Morgan Black and listening to https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0eNgQPAkp-k

Alcohol is perfect for these situations.

If you feel anxious or sad (with no other explanation), then it could be withdrawals. You been drinking a lot or around the clock?

Yeah i would say that is a fair assumption to make. Its not an absolute guarantee. From what i usually experience cider ferments pretty well without any additives so 15% is not unreasonable especially considering theres fermentable sugar already in the juice. But i would say at least 12-14% assuming your yeast tolerates it and it should using champagne yeast.
Wesley Blinkinridge - Fri, 21 Oct 2016 06:47:07 EST ID:YKPyr/lu No.270524 Ignore Report Quick Reply
with Lalvin EC-1118, which is a champagne yeast, I find it pretty easy to get up to around 17-18%. If you start getting more complicated with your brewing and start doing things like staggered nutrient additions and you follow a regular degassing regimen you can push it to around 22%

at least thats the highest i've ever managed.

Get yourself a hydrometer. They're like 25 bucks and theyre an absolute necessity if you really wanna get into brewing. They help you determine the sugar content of your juice and they usually have a little scale on them that will give you an ABV% estimation for a given specific gravity (density)

it'll take the guesswork out of figuring out how much sugar is enough to get the desired alcohol content. also keep in mind that too much sugar will create a toxic environment for the yeast and your fermentation might not start at all.

Oh and make sure your juice doesn't have preservatives in it. The best cider i've ever made came from fresh, cold pressed apple juice. I get it free for helping out a buddy of mine who runs an apple orchard.

Reporting in!
So I made a peach white wine with added sugar and champagne yeast, and it turned out really well. Tastes like a moscato, and strong for a wine. It was a satisfying feeling getting a good buzz from something I made myself.
I'm capping the cider tonight. It's going to sit and age while I work though the wine.
I've also got a second bottle of cider that I started a week after the first one, so I can have a gallon a week. Hopefully I can keep a brew overlap so I'm never without booze.
Bought an auto-siphon so I can avoid stirring up settlement in future batches. I'll order a hydrometer next.
