Could mean dead, eliminate, extinguish.

Fie dap = power cut (electricity supply dead)

One of the first Thai phrases you learn.

Hi Bob, could you explain where I'm being self-righteous please. 

I post a list of questions in a forum for people who drink too much, with the intention of helping some decide if they are an alcoholic, or not. This could allow them to seek the necessary help if they want to cut down or quit.

There are very different procedures depending if one is alcoholic or not not. 

Someone replied, and I asked if they had drinking problem. 

I have experience in stopping drinking and like to help others. I am not worried about what other people drink, but if they want to stop, I might be able to help. 

Thanks in advance. 

 

 

Are you on commission ?

Pfui! This is one reason alcohol rehab programs are so ineffective. Here's an easy way to tell. For thirty days, take two drinks every day. Do not drink more than two, no matter what happens. Do not skip a day. Every day, two drinks, whatever you're used to drinking, beer, liquor, whatever. Just two. If you can do this, you're not an alcoholic. If you're an alcoholic, like me, you'll know without even trying that it's absurd, that nobody could do that.

I havn't read any of it , but i geuss nobody will answer with yes because a real alcoholic is always in denial . 

Not always. A great many alcoholics end up hurting enough that they cannot stand it any more and cannot deny any longer. Many of them just quit drinking, and are able to do so. I found a much easier way is to attend Alcoholics Anonymous meetings, where you can find people like yourself (like the people you sought out in bars). Many people find AA not congenial because of "the God thing." I don't know what they do.

Damned if you do.....

 

And therein lies the rub. 

 

Give yourself up to higher power! Come join us, we are the wise, you are the blind.

OK, great thread Neeranam, shows how many people don't understand the serious nature of it. But for those of you that don't understand the questions in the OP, listen to the lyrics of the below song by Tom MacDonald below (not necessarily watch the video but listen to what he is saying).

 

Before May 1st 1999 (last drink of alcohol for me, just happy I made it that far!), I could have related to about 90% of what he describes during my drinking years at one time or another. Not the reason I stopped, but just listening to the words make me reflect on what I must have appeared like at those times of hanging one on.

Frankly, I'm sad to see that some here find the topic of alcoholism a joke.

 

This is a sub-forum entitled "I drink too much".

 

if you are not concerned, why are you reading this?

Are you making a dossier on TV members lives? you make so many posts asking personal questions. get a life.

The self righteousness is outstanding. I would say a fare few on this thread know PRECISELY how serious alcoholism is and how utterly retarded the OP's questionnaire is - hence the pi$$ taking. 

 

If anything, it is the OP who has made a mockery of true alcoholism and the serious nature of it. 

 

Oh and by the way, I wont personally play a youtube video of any person that was bright enough to get a tatt on their face. I suggest you associate your own addictions with more worthy head figures. It doesn't paint your post in the best of light.

Sometimes. Depends on my mood. I have "I'll be an alcoholic today" moods, and "I'll be really productive today" moods. Thinking about it, reminds me a bit of Conan Doyle's Sherlock Holmes character and his cocaine addiction.

Oh dear the wowsers always abound on topics like this. Alcoholism is a disease. The same folk, I suspect, think depression is some one who is having the blues, not someone who has an imbalance of brain chemicals. Not a subject for mirth or god bothering. I wish that these folk went back to humility school and remember “There but for the grace of God, go I”.
