The drink would probably be one of the best substances around if it weren't for the hangover. In fact I wouldn't be surprised if good hangover/withdrawal tolerance is one of the leading factors in what drives a certain segment of the population to it. Pray that you never get kindling because it will stop your drinking dead in its tracks.

The hangovers and the calories are the only downsides really.

OP I don't understand; what do you mean by kindling?

If drinking didn't dehydrate me I'd be drinking all the time. At work, at home, wherever. Like a rich CEO. Beer also bloats me so urinating a hundred times blows but I always go too hard on liquor so it's a compromise.

Don't forget the organ damage (including the brain and making your skin ugly), crippling addiction, and withdrawal that can literally kill

Do yourself a favour and read the wiki article about kindling associated with sedative-hypnotics (i.e. depressants). It pretty much outlines exactly what happened to me. At first my hangovers were just cognitive impairment, lethargy, nausea which was fixed by hurling, and I also remember always feeling easily humoured. In time the hangovers turned from mild to full blown day-long panic attacks.

I think alcohol only really truly vibes with a certain percentage of the population that has some sort of latent 'uncomfortableness' within them. As in, for them, the alcohol is much like a 'drug-remover', in that the effect is like stripping away what's blocking their true self from revealing.

For these people, all GABA type drugs are like nectar - phenibut, benzos, gabapentin, gbl, etc. But the king is booze. Nothing beats the crystal clear revealing of oneself that the toxic nectar unearths.

I've tried over 40 drugs (including iv coke meth mdma and heroin), and in terms of sheer 'fun', nothing really beats hooch. Sure, some drugs have more potent raw euphoria - but booze is always there for me. Always predictable, always there by my side. Making everything all better.

There's a lot of truth in this. I'm one such person.

i dont know about that. of course its true for a large portion, but it seems that genetics make drunkenness more fun for certain people and that these people just enjoy drinking in and of itself. i dont enjoy benzos bc they make me feel dysphoric, like id prefer being sober and more awake. alcohols got a serious "fun factor" that benzos lack. i drink alone and at night 98% of the time and i do it out of hedonism, because its an easy and convenient boredom killer. my parents are the same way, as is my brother

essentially some GABA drugs are like alcohol with different side-effects but don't have as harsh of a hangover

Usually less organ damage, too.Since you don't have a bunch of acetaldehyde in the bloodstream.

Depends on the person. I personally don't get any positive effects from alcohol, it might be because I've drank quite a lot in last 2 years (well, compared to /hooch/'s alcoholics, not really) and I've tried a lot of different drugs.

It just makes me dizzy and nauseous if I have too much. No disinhibition, no euphoria, almost no relaxation (I even become more restless) and huge urge to chainsmoke. My hangovers aren't bad and quite managable though, even if I had gotten blackout drunk previous night. The only reason I drink anymore is because of friends.

I've wondered this. I don't really get hangovers, I never really noticed anything negative until I'd been drinking every night for a while. In fact when I first started drinking I'd get wasted, sleep for 12 hours and wake up feeling great. Even the few times I overdid it and puked I felt fine the next day. That went away as I got older but I never had headaches or next day puking, would just feel tired even though I slept a ton.

I know people that say they don't really drink because the hangovers are so severe it's not worth it. For example if my sister goes out drinking for a night she's basically bed bound for the whole next day and puking. I guess if that happened to me I wouldn't have ended up drinking like this.

I guess I'm "hungover" every day now, but all I really feel is tired. I'm also getting reflux now and my throat sometimes feels like it's full of glue which is very irritating but that's not really a hangover symptom, it's just from drinking every night.

It's weird, the more I drink the less I want to smoke. In fact I went from smoking like 10 cigs through the day and would smoke more when drinking, to only smoking when drinking at night, to only having 1 or 2 whilst drinking, to just stopping altogether. I mean I've had many 1 or 2 cigs in the past 2 weeks. Dunno why. Maybe it's because the stimulant effect is now undesirable because my GABA receptors are downregulated? Hey, at least I'll die of liver failure rather than lung cancer.

fuck it man, hangovers are terrible but there's your benchmark for death, and the remainder of your suffering. how much worse could it be than that time you drank all that cheap vodka on an empty stomach and went to work the next day?
