    So yesterday me and two friends went to see Slash in concert with Halestorm playing the pre-show. We took the train and on the way there the three of us got loaded on a bottle of whiskey. At the show we drank $60 worth of beer also.

    Both the pre-show and main show were fucking amazing. It might have been the best concert I ever went to.

    The shitty part is that I hardly remember anything of it. The whole show went by like some sort of blur. Even in the moment itself, I wasn't really 'there'.

    Of course I woke up with a brutal fucking hangover this morning. This feeling shitty in combination with not remembering shit drew the line for me. I decided I'm done with it.

    I'm 25, I got completely fucking hard-core wasted too many times to count by now. It's enough already.

    I don't think you're ready to quit but admitted you have a problem is a huge first step

    Yeah. I'll still drink a few, but no more of that extreme shit.

    speaking of which, I have an alcoholic in my family and I'm wondering if I should hide any alcohol in the house when he's here. Not because I think he's going to steal anything, but just so I don't even tempt him. The other school of thought is that it's my house, I should be able to leave it lying around, he's going to be tempted everywhere he goes anyway and he's got to deal with it.

    Wow. Maybe I don't have a drinking problem, that much alcohol would kill me...good luck. Maybe just cut back, that's what I'm starting to do...

    You'll probably have more fun limiting yourself to a few drinks or cold beers on a hot day than getting blind fucked up anyways. Booze has gotten so expensive, and the penalties added on by cops for doing anything "under the influence" are just ridiculous. Besides, if you're halfway sober, you can laugh at all your drunken friends and the shit they pull, and hopefully keep them out of serious trouble, a sign of a good friend.

    I seriously cutback after the night I finished a 5th of Goldschlager when I was 19. Ever since i turned 21 I don't drink to get drunk anymore...half the fun was gone when it became legal. Now it's just two or 3 beers to chill out.

    That is exactly my realization. Being completely fucked up is no fun. I'm surprised it took so long for me to figure that one out.

    Yeah... It was spread out over 5 hours or so, and beer at these venues is really expensive. Still, I agree that's a lot of alcohol. Too much.

    My drinking isn't a constant. During weekdays I hardly drink anything. But during events like this I have the tendency to get plastered.

    I get a little depressed whenever I think of the pussy I missed out on by making every party a drinking contest w/ my friends. I give all young men the same advice: when you go to a party, drink half as much as your shit head friends, and talk to twice as many girls. Memories of pussy are better than memories of black outs and hang overs.

    good for you; temperance in all matters is wise, so if you can drink just a little and be okay, that's one thing; if you can't stop drinking once you've started, it's best to avoid it altogether :up:
