Are You An Alcoholic?

You must be very worried that you are an alcoholic if you read this long question. Otherwise you would not care. 

Na, just retired and curious in my retirement while currently having my glass of red wine with lunch. Have to admit some affinity for #5 as the month long alcohol sales were drawing down my home supply. 555 One nice thing about being a, “soft touch”, a “weak sister” ... whatever ... I have always had a low tolerance for any type of “relaxant”. Back in the day, I told the girls, one drink and I am a friendly fellow, two glasses and I get amorous, three glasses and they were safe as I was getting sleepy. Hope it brought a smile to your reading.

Yes, I'm an alcoholic. I'm content with that, as it keeps my gambling habits at bay.

It's good that you can sometimes be a drunk and never have a problem, but have you ever thought about the state your liver must be in?

No, I haven't see a doctor since one of my kidney was taken away (1975).

And lucky I didn't have to see one, well at least that's what I think. 

Inconveniences come and then go away with me. 

If I go to see a doctor now, pretty sure he will forbid me a lot of things, if not everything I like. 

In no way I will pretend that my approach of things is the only correct one. 

Each of us in particular has to decide what he thinks is best for him. 

It would be nice if some will abstain to tell others what they should do. 

Some are prepare to accept the consequences. 

Government and officers having the authority, can of course require you to do what they want. 

Also here, there are some preparing to take the consequences when not obeying. 

They are however not so many.

 ...... and whoring.

When I'm drunk I lose the urge to take a woman home.

26 questions and if you answered yes to one of them you might have a problem. 5555. Seems very judgmental to me .

No, I don't drink. I am a recovered alcoholic.

 

Hope the recovery keeps progressing. 

I consider myself fortunate to have never been an alcoholic, although I was a big spender on alcohol. 

Recently I had a bit of an epiphany concerning how much money I had spent on alcohol and how much time and opportunities I had wasted as a result of hangovers.  So I decided to simply stop drinking. 

 

That was January 1st and I've not touched alcohol nor had any desire to since then.  

I can't get the time or money back but I sure as hell am not going to keep putting 100's of thousands of baht per year into some bar owners pockets again.

Alcoholics can't manage, or control their drinking. This is a definition of an alcoholic.

 

If you are indeed an alcoholic, can you describe an experience when you had delerium tremens? 

 

Yes i can. And it was the most horrible experience in my life. If I would describe it, some fools here would make jokes about it.

I was two week in IC and happy to be still alive after. That was 39years ago and sins then I didn't have to drink one drop of booze. I could not do this without AA and now I'm happy to help others if they want......
