So just to be clear, when people say that American companies test for booze, they mean it in the sense of "oh shit retard you came to work immediately after having two or three gin and tonics for breakfast" and not in the sense of having a weekend drinking sesh and getting tested for it monday, right?

I mean... testing to see if you're buzzed on the job is still gay as fuck, but at least it's not literally "you were drunk 48 hours ago and now we are going to fire you lol" levels of 1984. I'm so glad my job working as a dish washer doesn't give a fuck if I come in drunk. (inb4 drunk driving bad!!!! I don't drive to work. It's a 10 min walk).

Also: ITT drinking on the job thread because might as well

the drug test that we take are the 5 panel ones that have THC/PCP/speed/opiates/cocaine

alcohol isn't included

I've drank on the job at my hotel job. It's a small hotel and after 4 pm I'm the only person there so I can have 2-3 brews in the back before I go home at 11 PM. My shift is 2nd shift (3 pm - 11 pm) so i have alot of freedom to do whatever at work

Hey hooch so i am really desperate to get half drunk but its 3 am and where i live they have these very frustrating laws where you can't buy alcohol after 10PM or before 10AM so i can't go anywhere and buy some.

All i have in my house that has ethanol in it is mouthwash and i am really really trying not to drink some but i can't fucking get over the hump. surely the chances of dying or permanently fucking myself up drinking lets say 250ml of it once couldn't be too bad.
(ingredients
Ethanol
sodium hydroxide
sodium saccharin
cetylpyridinium chloride
sodium floride
zinc chloride)

I drank a whole bottle of listerine because I was dead broke, homeless and going through bad withdrawal. I mean, it did the job but sometimes it burns when you piss afterwards. I drank hand sanitizer once too on a dare because it was the only alcohol I had that wasn't rubbing alcohol. Honestly if push came to shove I'd drink mouthwash if I was feeling as bad as I was then, but fuck drinking sanitizer even if it's just pg and ethyl alcohol.

try to mix it with cold water with a very small amount of added sugar or honey.

ouzo is very similar to absynthe, and absynthe is usually mixed with cold water poured on sugar. it is usually mixed to 10% alcohol.

Sweating bullets, shaking so bad I can barely hold a cig, severe nausea. Probably gonna start drinking again soon even though I'm not in a position to afford alcohol. The withdrawal doesn't bother me that much aside from the severe anxiety and depression that comes with it. If I don't drink my anxiety is so bad it makes me really uncomfortable to even leave the house.

as a musician who networks at local bars, i dont think i can stop drinking entirely
however, for my health, i want to limit it as much as possible
I try ordering soda in between but the bars generally expect a significant purchase and people buy you drinks and shit if they like you
i enjoy chatting with people there, too, like the nice midwestern queer girl who didnt know where greenwich village was or what it was oh boy she's in for a surprise and a good lay

anyway

the point is, if you are bar hopping for the purposes of business expansion as a bar-related entertainer, how do you limit your alcohol intake so you are not broke and also stuck with the too much macaroni sweats

It could be a bleeding stomach ulcer, but all things considered throwing up blood isn't a good thing. I know you probably can't just stop drinking at your stage of addiction but how about slowing down, at least stop with that 120 proof crap that will kill your organs faster than anything. Maybe make yourself a challenge and see if you can stick to something weak like beer for a while. Who cares what a stupid program thinks, its your life and you make your own choices.

Would you likely know for sure if you are experiencing alcohol withdrawal? I’m like 3-4 days sober and feel completely fine, but all the health websites say the amount I drink (basically about half a fifth of 40% daily Mon-Thur and a full fifth or more Fri-Sun) is easily enough that I possibly could be a fuking candidate for delerium tremens. I don’t feel any symptoms of alcohol withdrawal at all but I’m scared I’m gonna randomly fall into a seizure after reading these damn health websites.

Inb4 pussy. I’m just not drinking for 2 months to lose some weight. Going right back to it (maybe not as much) afterwards.

>And you should be feeling absolutely terrible on the days you only drink 8

I don'y know, 16 drink is like overly drunk. Cutting off from a 1/5th to half that should
be easier to navigate life, in three days should be easy to get along with it. Sleepwis, 4 5 days. People drink say 8 drinks in 4 hours, then just keep drinking, by that point, any more than that, double than that is just not very productive.

Kind of curious about this myself. Been drinking for probably about 7 years now, heavily for the past 3, and for the past year it's been super heavy. For definitions as to what I'm considering heavy and "super heavy," for the past 3 years I was probably having at least 6 drinks a day with no stop in between. For the past year and a half, though, I'm drinking all day (including before and at work) and it's not rare (ie - it's common) for me to drink a handle in two days. And those two days, I don't mean a weekend. I mean two work days.

This week, I tried to cut back and only drink 3-4 beers. I lasted two days. It wasn't because I relapsed out of impulse or anything, it was because I could not fall asleep, was incredibly irritable throughout the day, felt legitimately sick and my stomach had physical tremors, my body was sweating, and when I did get 2 hours of sleep, it was nothing but nightmare fuel.

It's also worth noting that 3-4 beers a day was about what I drank when I first started drinking. During the first 4 years, I was going through about a 30 pack and a handle a week, probably a bit more. It's getting much heavier.

No matter what I cant manage to kill myself from drinking. I've gone out of my way to chug whiskey until I was sick, and pass out on my back so I choke on my own vomit but I keep fucking waking up. What am I doing wrong?
I've managed to do it before but I woke myself up by vomiting and choking. I'm a coward and I cant get a gun so this is the only thing I can think that I can do. If I had access to a garage I'd probably take my truck in there and leave it on and drink until I die but I dont.

you know whats gonna work if you cannot access a gun is to use a belt tied to a solid support and hang yourself (warning: don't do this)

dont hang yourself bro, but we're talking hypotheticals before the mods strike you down: if you get anchor your neck by a leather cord to the ceiling, you can kick the stool out from your feet and you're gonna die

go to a highway overpass and jump off, call the police and make threatening motions with a knife, killing yourself is not rocket science

this is a cry for help, or drunken ramblings like mine

I feel like alcoholism is suicide for people who can't fully accept death, because you anesthetized all your feelings over and over but you just cant let go because whatever

haha, man you guys giving advice.. my turn!

I have been in a place where I wanted to end it all.. For now I love being alive because I love beer and whiskey and weed. Just find something that can make you feel better. I take kratom daily as well and it helps a lot.

I also always have pot which helps a lot. Idk your situation. I know this is the booze thread, but I think weed can help you, and plenty of alcohol of course... I drink myself to sleep every night, weed is just icing on the cake for me...

But srsly, don't do anything stupid man.

So, there's this dude I work with. We did a small gig, and it went well, or reasonably well. The other acts made similarly minor mistakes but it was cool because everybody was drunk and having a good time, that kind of thing.

Anyway, the problem was, after we played our short, two-song set, he went outside and across the street and got a bottle of alcohol. I didn't think too much of it because sometimes I do things like that just for convenience - it's right there, I need to drink more later, etc. But then he basically gets hammered and we go back into the venue, sit down and order coffee. He orders decaf. He cheers and "eggs on" and encourages the other acts, but is basically disruptive the entire time and has a bad attitude about everything.

I kind of want to switch him out for another guy but can't at the moment due to limited selection, plus I want to help him out because he's actually not a bad guy except when he's this drunk. So, after he's so disruptive that it's intolerable, the owner comes up to me and asks me to take him home, and I do so. But, he keeps begging for more alcohol on the way home. I refuse until we get to his doorstep and finally relent, giving him basically one swig of the bottle I took. I then take him upstairs, give his wife the bottle and he goes to bed. But the thing is, the entire way up he was super defensive about being out of line and claiming the venue owner was the problem and being a jerk, but it was just that he was hammered, really.

How should I help him manage his alcoholism? Rehab and AA are right out, and he has serious alcoholism and needs to take it for withdrawals in small amounts. He's also grumpy. Any advice?

That's crazy man. Have you talked to him about it before when he's sober? I think as with all addicts they won't change until they have the internal desire to. Like I won't stop anything for anyone else sadly, but if it's genuinely something I myself want I can cold turkey whatever. Is there any way to kind of spark that interest in him? Get him to want to let up a bit. Somehow... I commend you for being a steadfast friend there.
