To commit to abstinence:I need to stop
Once or twice a month (ie every fortnight) is not what I would call "rarely drinking". that's every second week...When I was in college I rarely drank.
Only if you let it.It slowly sneaks up on you and chips away at you.
Yeah this is not how one deals with stress. This is called abusing alcohol to deal with your stress. that's not with alcohol is for. You abused it and it abused you back. What do you expect.then during a stressful period started having several glasses on wine a night.
this is excess. This is not moderation. this is not what alcohol is meant to be. One full bottle of wine to reward yourself after a hard days work.....alone. this is down on you abusing the product. You were never thought how to drink. this is being a gluten. you cannot blame alcohol for that.I go through the day.. working hard.. eating well...working out... then the other me comes out. He wants that bottle of wine to relax and reward the hard working.. driven me.
Yes it does. Trying it once when you were 13 doesn't count, tastes evolve. Wine is delicious and ****tails are amazingly complex.Honestly I never get why people drink or smoke.
The best thing is to listen their excuses.
"It tastes good" - No, it doesn't
It doesn't help people that's the point. It has an estimated 5% success rate. Do your research and you will see that it does more harm than good.If it helps people then let it be.
You're implying (like most in the "diseasing of america culture" believe) that there are only two choices on the table: 1. Continue destructive stumblebum alcoholic behavior 2. Go to AA. ......and you conclude that AA is the lesser of the two evils.but it's not destructive to the lives of the drinker and everyone around him like actual alcohol is.
AA is not only a cult, it is a DANGEROUS CULT. For this reason there are MANY who are not only against dangerous theories of this pseudo religious cult (by the way everyone assumes that those against aa are "anti religion", this is simply not the case....in fact I believe aa is an insult to religions)......AA is anti family (just like addiction is)....AA tears the victim away from the family, when that's exactly where they need to be....building bridges with the family they have damaged. AA creates self fulfilling prophecies in the minds of it's victims (oh I am an alcoholic...well I guess that's what alcoholics do.....oh once I have one drink I can never stop.....if you believe their bull****e it becomes self fulfilling..........AA is full of sexual predators and other assorted criminals, sociopaths and oddballs. A gathering ground for the mentally ill and fanatics. Alcohol filled a hole in their souls and without alcohol there remained a vacuum. The bull****e of AA fills this vacuum. Notice the all speak the same double speak...AA is a bit culty, and is as much an addiction as alcohol is,
Dear Scaramouche,Dear Grinder,
Saw a Danish Movie last week "Another Round"which light heartedly examines the suggestion that many people function very well while partially inebriated much of the time...Churchill gets a mention in his Seventies as well as being very active on the political scene,he was still laying bricks,producing very competent paintings and writing significant works,during his busy day he would indulge in several glasses of Whisky two pints of Champagne and top this off with a few liqueurs he made it to ninety.
There is a big differene between nowadays cigarattes and old times (like the ancient native american ones) cigarettes. Same when it comes to food. Food nowadays is poisoned, just like many other things that could be healthy or acceptable and now are demonized. Yes, smoking is bad and unnecessary, especially today. The point, I believe, that it comes to any addiction, is the fact that you are losing control. It doesn't matter if it's alcohol, cigarettes, pvssy or porn, every addiction will eventually **** you up. It can take long, but it will. The same way that you could keep on healthy while using cigs, I have friends that can't even have sex with their wives properly anymore because of that. Either ways, it's not worth the risk. Whatever thing you let become an addiction, will own you.Some of the finest athletes in the world smoke. I’ve watched marathoners and triathletes roll one up before the start. Sprinters, distance runners. It opens their bronchial tubes. Native Americans used it as a cure for colds, flues and bronchial infections for thousands of years. There is real definitive science. Do I advocate it? No. It’s expensive and a bit nasty. Do I admonish those who smoke? No I don’t.
As a guy who served in a Spec Ops Batallion, I can say that it's not (or at least not even mostly) because of the aggressiveness. The guys in the army smokes all the time because of the stress. A douchebag high ranked officer, the duties, the missions, the subliminal message in your brain that tells you that you have no time to go back home if they don't want you to go... anyways. I think it's more like an anxiety escape than what you said, but I don't deny that it can help controlling the anger too.Military men, especially natural born warrior types will most likely use nicotine in one form or another. I’ve been there. I love nicotine. So I have to be careful.
Men in high risk professions are more likely to smoke.
I was SF. I DISSAGREE. They smoked before they got through selection. I was one of them. You can look this stuff up. It’s right on the net. Too simple.As a guy who served in a Spec Ops Batallion, I can say that it's not (or at least not even mostly) because of the aggressiveness.

Actually false data. Look it up. Nicotine + bad diet equals metabolic syndrome. Not smoking. If you read it thoroughly without your self righteous mental voice bouncing and jumping with disagreements you would have seen that I was not condoning it. I merely quoted a verifiable science. Not cultural propaganda. HahahaIt can take long, but it will.

It seems you've been needing some cigs then, mate. Take this stress out before replying the comments, you'll see that no one is threatening your fragile opinion in here.I was SF. I DISSAGREE.

But nothing I say will register for you. So cool. Go about your happy way. How would you know anyway.
It’s not anger they are calming out. It’s aggressiveness, assertiveness. What kind of mind would jump to “anger” as an automaticity?
Does aggressiveness and assertiveness equal anger? How about toxic masculinity? Any other mind stupid numbing thing you want to mention? What experiences do you have? How could you possibly know anything beyond your social conditioning? So when you smoked what was that like for you? Easing? Agitating? You didn’t even read where I said marathoners that I saw, rolled their own with straight raw tobacco.
You are entitled to your ignorant opinion.
I agree with this. I'm mid 40s and I'm constantly mistaken for being 10 (or more) years younger. I've had 18 and 19 year olds hitting on me and are shocked to find out my age. I've always believed it's because I have gone most of my life without drinking.Reducing or eliminating alcohol is an investment in how you age and how healthy you stay later in life. Remember that for all the young dudes.
Women think I'm early to late 30's all the time. I have my limited alcohol use to thank for that.
I don’t smoke. I quit some years back. I don’t feel threatened in the least. That would not be possible here.It seems you've been needing some cigs then, mate. Take this stress out before replying the comments, you'll see that no one is threatening your fragile opinion in here.
