I Have a Drinking Problem

I didn’t know if I should post this here or not but I figured what the hell. Juice. Orange juice, grape juice, apple juice, even V8 for christs sake. I mean the shits expensive, loaded with sugar, and I routinely drink a bottle or more every day. Like when I get home from work, I’ll pur a tall glass of whatever I can get my hands on, chucg it till it hurts from the cold, then re-fill the glass to the very top and then sip it down over the next 10 minutes.

Then when I make dinner I’ll drink a glass while I’m cooking, then I’ll do the pour chug pour routine when I sit down for dinner. I do that routine in the morning getting ready for work, and before I go to bed.

I don’t know what it is about juice but I just don’t want to drink anything else. My all time favorite is cran-blueberry. Cran apple is a close second. It’s to the point where if I get drinks for dinner I’ll do my juice thing and not even ask my wife what she wants and just pour her water, or I’ll be like, you just want water for a drink right? Like suggestively saying it so the juice is all mine! Bwahahahahahahahaha!

Do I have a problem? How do I kick this habit of delicious juice? I even want to get a juicer so I can make my own juice.

making your own juice sounds good.

i’ve been putting big scoops of Superfood in my juice to validate drinking it all the time.

I would say you have a problem if your physique isn’t where you want it to be. There were 2 posts about fructose, with a 90 minute video that goes over the metabolic effects of juice. Kinda scary.

But if you’re cut enough, chug that shit. Juice tastes so good. Crap. Now I want juice.

Lots of people guzzle juice to hide their insecurities or to “fit in”.

I was hooked on apple juice for about 6-8 years. It’s such a haze I can’t even remember what the hell I did from the age 3-10. One day, I just went cold turkey.

These days I keep my habit in check by chugging beer. It’s working out for me. I’m studying, have a job, a girlfriend. Every day’s a battle, but *'ll keep on fighting.

When I was sick a few weeks ago, most of my calories came from juice. I got a quart container and would fill it up with grape juice, OJ, apple juice, cran-apple, and water all together. It’s delicious.

I do the chug&sip thing with orange juice.

I’ll wipe out a half gallon in about 12 hrs.

Those strawberry mango combo type juices get done even quicker. If I know that they are there, I won’t stop till I know that they are gone.

I once lied to my wife about finishing it off as I stood with the fridge door open and the empty carton in my hand. I acted all surprised like the dog did it and yelled at her for it.

I cut juice with water. Not orange juice though. I cut that with vanilla vodka.

I do that with coffee. Seriously. I chug my coffee. :-/ I don’t even drink it at home in a mug, but simply put in a big glass, as a mug is too small.

This thread is funny because it misleads us with a serious problem and twists it around for our amusement. Nice!

Get yourself a juicer sir,

Not saying your problems will be solved, but at least it’ll be cheaper.

Can’t imagine the amount of sugar that’d have to be added to raw cranberries to make it drinkable though.

Don’t skimp on price either. Get a good one that spins at high rpms, has a fine mesh filter that’s removeable for cleaning, etc.

I also do this. Now when i got to a fast food restaurant, if they don’t have non-sweetened ice tea, i get whatever juice they have and dilute it with water. Normal juice is way too sweet for me now. Especially that 100% fruit juice stuff. Makes me feel sick.

I’d bite on an old school Mcdonalds “orange” drink, don’t think i’ve ever tried a grape drink. Yesterday I had some tomatoes juice. It’s not as good as V8, but it’s still velvety going down your throat. Also my all time fovorite hangover drink is pink grapefruit juice. I don’t know why, but I will usually drive to the store just to get a bottle of it if i’m really hurting. It’s the only thing that satisfies my need for liquid without making me feel sicker.

Thought this would be appropriate.
