Okay what is that exactly? Cause its not like being ghey you either suck dick or you dont.
So where is the line?[/quote]
it is a blurry line, but I have known alcoholics in my day. one beer will send them on a rocket sled to hell. they can’t stop and it usually ends with the rest of the day being out of control.
a habit, is waking up the next morning, saying that you wont do it again, and yet by 4pm, getting thirsty for a beer. becomes a lifestyle.
self medicating is drinking until you feel better, and keep yourself at that level.
this is a difficult concept, understood. but please dont question me on it, I’m an expert.[/quote]
You can argue the semantics of “an addiction” versus “a problem,” but it really just comes down to being a functional alcoholic versus a full-blown fuckup. Neither one is healthy.
I’m all for cutting loose and having a good time somewhat sparingly, but drinking daily (anything more than a beer with dinner or something to that effect) is really not good. Just because there are no social or career consequences doesn’t mean it’s ok.
And no, I’m not talking out of my ass. I was a 60+ drink per week guy about a year and a half ago, and even though I never ran into any repercussions apart from shitting on my body, I really regret doing that.
