Anyone else here waste their 20's being a drunk? I didn't drink a drop of alcohol until my 23rd birthday. I used to lift weights, be in great shape, etc. Then, like my father, I started drinking a lot. Now I drink at least 6 days a week. Mostly just cheap beer. I usually clear a 6 pack of tall-boys a day. Only had 3 tonight so I walked across the street to the liquor store to buy a 40 and another tallboy. I'm 29 now. Wasted 6 years of my life, my physical prime. No end in sight.

Sucks man.

Your twenties weren't permanent. Your life isn't permanent. If it wasn't a drinking habit, it would be some other way you'd look at "wasting". Some people regret not taking enough risks.

You make mistakes. You make bad decisions. That's life.

It's normal to regret your past, especially your mid 20s. Those are years of learning, as you venture further out and try to make it in the world. The things you learn can hurt sometimes. That's the way it goes. It always could have been so much better, but time is a thief and now it's gone forever, no do-overs. People have mental crisis over this shit. It's actually all just part of getting older.

29 is still young. I did lots of stupid, cringeworthy things in my 20s. I drank way too much. Ate nothing but junk food all the time. Let my health go to shit. Screwed up a ton of relationships. I had penty of regrets, yet it hardly bothers me at all now. If I could go back in time and never drink a drop of alcohol, I surely would have made smarter choices and avoided so much pain and embarrassment in my life. But maybe I wouldn't have had so much fun, either? Maybe I would have become even more of a shut-in due to social anxiety and ended up in a far worse place than I am now. Who's to say. It doesn't even really matter. I turned most of it around in my 30's. I look upon my past with fondness now, as a time of youthful experience gathering. You can too.

Holy shit. I have never seen a more relatable post here before.

Didn't have my first drink until I was 22 (now 29), lifted weights 6 days a week when I was younger and now drink 5-6 nights a week.

Except for me it's bottom shelf liquor instead of beer

26 years old here.
I've been an alcoholic for most of it. Nothing too extreme, but I do get black out at least twice a week, moreso when I was in college. Drink erry day for the most part.
I workout and am in great shape, college athlete and have kept up the physique. I have a steady career and am financially successful. I am doing well enough that I am frequently traveling for work to lecture other people who share the same job title as I on how to do their jobs for efficiently. My sex life while in college was well above average for most men. I have an adequate social life.
I still feel like I have wasted all of my 20s thus far. Im starting to believe that feeling like a failure and only focusing on your fuck ups is part of being in your 20s.

Yeah, dude. I'm turning 29 in May and I wasted a shitload of my time drinking alone. It's enjoyable, but I could have been doing better things. I can stop drinking for like 2 months but I always get bored getting into hobbies and remember how much more fun it is to be drunk doing it. Then once or twice a week turns into almost all of the week.

I don't have any desire to drink during the day, but whenever I know I have all my shit done around 8pm it's time to drink and smoke a few bowls. Usually 5 or 6 days out of the week.

yeah bro. OP here checking in. I loved to lift weights. I could probably go in tomorrow and still get respectable numbers on the big lifts...It's painful when I drive by the gym and I see DYEL's walking in to the gym or cardio bunnies. I haven't been in months.

I've drank 45 beers since Thursday night....I feel like it has gotten worse since last year. Back then I could drink 4-5 a night and be fine. I broke down crying in my car as I left the liqour store last night. I can't beat it and it's getting worse.

I'm 26. I've lost a few jobs and had some failed relationships due to my drinking. I've been drinking heavily since I was 19. At this point my tolerance is so high I have to drink a lot of liquor to get drunk. Beer is a waste of time at this point. I have a few scars on my body from accidents while drunk and generally feel shitty both mind and body when I'm not drinking.

I love alcohol and having a steady supply of it allows me to tolerate life with at least some enthusiasm. When I'm sober I can deal, but I'm usually just unenthusiastic and disinterested in life. Irritable as well but I do my best not to take it out on others. When I start drinking all the cobwebs clear and I start appreciating life and other people again. So on one hand, the drinking does play a benefit in my overall happiness and quality of life, but at the same time has made me dependent to feel "normal" and I know it isn't a healthy way to live. It's a bitch really. As much as I like to drink I really just wish I would have never started in the first place.

Yeah I feel you man. I've managed to keep my drinking mostly under control and a lot of that has to do with my girlfriend, but I do love it. If it wasn't for the shitty hangovers and just generally fucking up sleep, appetite, etc. I would probably drink a lot more than I do.

Definitely makes you wonder how it would be to have never started drinking so heavily. Would I be smarter? Would I be more successful? Would I have a bunch of knowledge and skills gained from all the time energy poured into that rather than getting drunk and toiling away? It's hard to tell because there's no control group, no reference point to compare yourself to. You can look at statistics but it's a wide bell curve. There are plenty of shitfaced mother fuckers out there living the dream and there are plenty of stone cold sober losers who have nothing to show for their entire lives.

I will say that from my own experience and from many others' reports, quitting definitely can reverse SOME of the damage. Might not ever be where you were if you never took a sip of alcohol but both science and the world's wealth of anecdotal reports suggest you can make big steps towards that. Alas, it's a journey that requires descending into the valley before you can climb the mountain. Some may face the journey, others may not. Until then, bottoms up my friend.

23 year old here, haven't wasted it yet, but plenty of times I wish my memory was better, so much good and bad shit I just forget. Friends tell me about stuff we did and I have no idea what they're talking about....But with losing touch with people, feeling more and more alienated, and the prospect of getting a career on the horizon, yeah I'm probably gonna drink so more

I started drinking at 16 17, whatever. At 36 I worked hard at it but could ride 40 miles on a bike like nothing. A few stops here and there. 100 fingertip pullups, spaced by a minute or so. It took work and dedication, getting up when the sun came up, ride bike for a few miles. Then start the day. Yea, wasted my 20s, off and on. Alcohol was the most demotivating factor in all aspects. Fun as it was,
it was not fun as well. Try to stop drinking and focus forward in everything you do.

Yeah man, I know how you feel except i've been drinking since my teens but that was just socially. I was drunk more often than not when I was 25-30 cause I gave up smoking weed and ended up just replacing it with alcohol. When I was 23 and 24 I was skinny and kinda in shape, then I gained 40 pounds from drinking half a bottle of vodka whenever I could sleep in or a six pack a night if I had to do shit the next day. I finally started to fix my shit earlier this year and went back to smoking, and only drink once or twice a month now and i've lost 20 pounds. Swapping alcohol for weed was the dumbest fucking mistake of my 20s.

Still got the rest of your life ahead of you and its not too late to make a change bro.
I had everything I could have ever have wanted but being a drunk asshole took it all away from me. Beautiful wife, high paying job, kid, loving family.
My wife left with my kid, not allowed to see him or her. Lost my job and now my family has given me an ultimatum that I need to quit but I can't.
I'm pretty much bordering on homelessness, I can't hold a steady job and I am quickly running out of money. I'm 26.

Reading this thread and holy fuck all of you I can relate to
I'm 26, starting drinking at 17. Had off and on periods but I have always loved the booze. Shit costed me three relationships and easily $50k. I actually tried to improve my life this year for several months and I was doing good but then COVID19 happened and shit went south again. Karmic punishment for being a drunk bastard I guess.
From a seasoned drinker: if you have someone who loves the fuck out of you, stop drinking. No matter how your drunk brain perceives it its not worth it. If you are destitute like me then it doesn't make a fuckin difference so cheers bro

Well, I guess the old guy should say something. 42 here. Did a shit ton of drugs in my early 20's. Was drunk for a solid 8 years from 25 to 30 something. Then heroin. Now I'm not dead and can go to sleep with beer in the fridge and forget all about it for a few days.

Shit gets old. You will either stop when your done or drink yourself to a slow painful death. Most of my friends had kids and stopped. It feels like you want to keep on drinking and maybe you will. But you hit this wall in your 30s where the hangovers get worse, None of your pants fit. You're paying 400 bucks for the brethyliser in your car.

And one day you won't stop to get a case. Or drink yourself to death. Good luck with that though.

I'm >>284810 and 42 too.

It 'gets old' every Sunday. In Monday, I still have the feeling that now I'm done. But come Friday, it's happy time again and I do feel great for few hours.

'Unfortunately', my health hasn't dropped dramatically from the early 20's. I keep active though: 40 kilometers of cycling five times a week (go to work); walk maybe 10 kilometers every day, even if hangover; do basic workout five times a week (pushups, situps etc.) and so on.

My weight have stayed same from the late teens. I been drinking EVERY weekend for over 20 years. The amount of alcohol consumed have changed though and currently I don't drink more than littre of vodka in a weekend and maybe two liters of beer. At worst I drank two liters of vodka and God knows how much beer from Friday night to Sunday midday.

Yes, I've been telling myself that if only I had a family, this shit would stop immeditely. But thats all lies: I like /hooch/ too much, even with the depression that follows, because I know it will go away in few days.

In other words, I will probably drink myself to death. Which will go first, liver or heart, it's hard to say. Who knows how much damage I've caused to the Old Plumber by not having a single (non-hangover) day of relax and quiet.

Oh yeah, I smoke too: three cigarettes without filter a day on average; when drinking, much more.

I'm 29 and I've been reading forever on these type of boards that the hangovers will get worse and worse. Now I never got hangovers and counted myself lucky. For a good 10 years of drinking (only weekends for most of it) I would maybe want to sleep for 10-12 hours after (I always slept long anyway so never thought anything of it), but never had nausea or headache or any of the classic symptoms. In the beginning I even woke up feeling great after half a bottle of whiskey and a nice long sleep. Now this year finally I have found the beast has finally arisen, and it's the anxiety hangover. Had a panic attack in March and since then I'll get weeks when I get similar symptoms (but never yet come to the terrifying climax) throughout the day. Initially thought it was w/d but it doesn't seem to get worse and worse the longer I don't drink. Like I'll start feeling light headed and weirdly tense and slightly tight-chested and it generally goes away with distraction or after a bit. When I clock off and get home though, I feel fine. Of course, this means time for some drinks. I have definitely noticed an increase in fatigue though. Like I sometimes wake up with my alarm for work (at fucking noon) and feel...aggressively tired. It's like it hurts. Days off I could basically sleep on and off until 4-5-6pm. Body is getting sick of this shit.

>You will either stop when your done or drink yourself to a slow painful death
I wish I'd magically feel done. Like I did with cigs. I just had less and less desire to smoke until I just stopped, although I think it was because of my increasing booze consumption. Like they always say, you have to want to stop. And despite how shit I feel sometimes because of it and how it's presumably fucking my health up badly I don't want to.

I turned 29 today. I've mostly spent my 20's on drugs, but definitely a lot of alcohol involved. Some of the best times I've ever had were when I was high, drunk or tripping.

I've gotten 3 DUI's, wrecked a car, multiple broken bones, burned bridges, embarrassed myself countless times and buried myself in some serious debt. I've spent a year in jail, went to rehab and overdosed twice. I currently have pending cases in three different counties. The only thing I haven't done is gone to prison and I'm doing everything in my power to avoid that right now.

Wasted my 20's? Nah. But if I could have done it a bit differently I sure would of. It would have saved me a ton of headache and heartache that's for sure. They say "everything in moderation" but moderation has never really been my strongsuit. So I'm treating my body like the rental car it is. I'm showing up at the dealership half drunk with the bumper hanging off.
