i am very poor and considering going to the local grocery store for a five-finger discount. i don't have any money to pay with.

how much gabapentin and how often are you taking it? once you exceed 600-800mg at a time, you really start to see diminishing returns on bioavailability. if best to take about that much each dose and redose every 45-90 minutes. you may have already known all that, though

I was at the grocery store about 8 AM today and the store had apparently reset their beer isles and had so much beer on clearance that I couldn't help myself. I bought 3 delirium tremens for 1.99 each, Scottish ales for .99, guiness for 3.99 a sixer, lagunitas brown shugga sixers, session 12 pks for 5 bucks, cedar creek, sidewinder, Stella, etc. Y'all, I had a cart FULL of beer. I paid 50 bucks for over 160 bucks worth of beer ( not old or expired either) I hit the jackpot.

buddy, i owe thousands, have for over a year, and am an unemployed dropout. i just learned yesterday that the collections agencies have begun calling my former employers. i had to borrow $400 from a very generous friend just to make rent for this month. my bank account is negative and my credit card defaulted. my credit score may be too low to even move into another place after this lease ends. i've run out of unnecessary possessions to sell. i went to the food bank yesterday and stole from a grocery store today. i know i don't suffer the worst fate, but believe me, you're not the only alcoholic in the world who knows what it means to be broke

i ended up walking out with a 15 pack, a six pack, some meat, eggs, bread, and veggies. the liquor is unfortunately sectioned off, it would have been moronic to try to steal some. successful haul overall

no. i've only stolen twice before and never for more than like $15 worth of merchandise prior to today. i'm seeking work and have enough food to last me a little bit now, i don't want to make it a regular behavior at all. with that said, i know how little of a shit the employees at that particular supermarket care, and i'm not a dumbass; i'd have been able to cover my ass with the way i went about it even if i got caught. i wouldn't have done it if i weren't extremely confident i could walk out without issue

Missed you fags. Just got done having fun with my buddy and his gf. Been too long since we (me and buddy) had fun. Gf was new but kind of a drag. Seemed surprised by our alcoholism.

That brought a genuine smile to my face, thanks anon.

Naw bitch. Even if someone else helped you down the road you still chose to walk it. I could blame more than a few things as excuses for my alcoholism. Such as my father who was an alcoholic until he died when I was six. I could blame the fallout from that shit too, plus some other shit. But all of that doesn't matter. What matters is that I decided to drink like a damn fish.

At my worst (few months ago) I wasn't quite that bad. I had (and still have) about $20k in debt and I was unemployed. Only payed rent because my retired mother is a fucking saint. Better now. Got a job and I'm working tons of overtime to avoid the juice and to make extra cash to pay off my debts. Currently cutting back on my boozing, I'm almost to the point where a six pack a day is good enough for me.

I must have been a damn viking then. At the longest I was pushing 10". About two years with only a quick trim to keep it even. Eventually I cut it down to about 1/2" also, but I liked rocking the big beard.

>load shit in the bag
>transfer to basket/cart near exit
>grabbed more shit (presumably in cart)
>took out bag
>went to exit
>put everything in the bag
At least, as I understand it.

Makes me feel better and worse about my alcoholism. At my worst I was putting away at least two bottles (750 ml each) every night. Now it's, at worst, a six pack and half a liter. At best it's just the six pack.

Exactly why I don't like one night stands. Some of my less "promiscuous" friends thought I was crazy, but they tend to have a relationship lasting at least a couple months long. My longest was two months.

It's nearly 6 AM and I still can't sleep. Passed out for a couple hours earlier and it robbed me of my drunken fade to slumber.

Go for a long walk

>> No.10454360

The next stage in your developing addiction is where you delay your first drink until as slate in the day as possible because you know that as soon as you start drinking you'll be passed out within a few hours, and this messes with your sleep schedule resulting in what you're experiencing right now.

The good news is that's the final stage before you quit because you'll be strengthening your ability to avoid the substance and there will be a day where successfully manage to avoid the liquid demon for the entire day and you'll go to bed without having touched it that day. You'll wake up feeling fresh and without the dreaded hangover that you've become accustomed to. You won't know yourself and you'll want to feel this feeling again. You'll continue to delay that first ""inevitable"" drink for the day but when crunch time comes you'll remember how great you felt when you woke up. So you'll keep delaying and eventually go to bed sober for the second time in a row.
And so begins the new you.

Grandfather finally found peace last night. We've had some good long talks in the last few months about him being very ready for this, so I'm happy for him. He was in a lot of pain.
It's still hard for me to lose the old man, but this is no time to be selfish.

Sadly, and I think I've mentioned it before here, it looks like the family will tear itself apart over the inheritance. It's not even that much money. They've just had too much time watching him die and they've become bitter and paranoid and and have turned on one another.
It was always a quirky family but they always stuck together. It's fucking painful to see them like this.
I'm fairly sure he never saw or heard any of this quarreling. I hope he didn't. I don't want him to have died knowing that his children would fight like jackals for the the house and the money.

Having some shots of whisky and a couple of his left-behind morphine tablets in memory of the old man. May he rest in peace.
He worked as a fisherman from these docks all his life. I'll try to talk the undertaker into driving down past there on the way to the church.

Guys how do I stop drinking? I seem to have somehow hidden it for a very long time. I only ever get properly shitfaced when I'm home alone. I spend the whole night wanking and playing vidya, pass out at maybe 3 or 4 am. I live with my fiance so only get that way once every few weeks. If we go out drinking with other people I take it easy because I'm terrified of people seeing the real drunk me. It may not sound so bad to you guys but I get so drunk that the entire next day I literally do nothing but throw up and sleep. Then I feel guilty for wasting an entire day when i could be doing more productive things. Then I clear the house of evidence and go to the shops to replace any booze I drank. Friday's haul was 3 bottles of champagne. I don't feel the need to drink until the next home alone night comes around. I've been doing this for about 5 years now and it feels like habit, I've broken it a couple of times but went back to it. I don't drink for any reason, my life is going very well I think, I don't have anything to be sad about. I definitely drink much less now than I did when I lived alone/with friends. Any ideas how I can stop doing this? Do I just have to make sure I'm not alone the whole time? Thanks for reading.

I would literally do anything she said for years....If she called me yesterday before this realization and said burn down your house and come start a new life in some third world shithole with me I would have done it in a heartbeat.

I blocked her calls/messages on my phone earlier today, If she comes over to my house I'm just not going to answer the door.

Best bet is to just ignore her completely now.

You are not bullshitting, m8. Had some shit even cheaper than Franzia (can't remember name) once and was rewarded with an uncomfortable drunk due to the sweetness and one of the few real proper hangovers I have ever had. Like a hangover you can't even drink away. That's fucked up.

I've always hated people on al/ck/ who say, "hurr, just smoke pot!" All my friends, family, teachers, etc, growing up smoked weed all the time and it always made me paranoid.

Honestly, we should all just stop with the al/ck.

That's what we should all do, just stop drinking and smoking, get into something we love that's not destructive.

That sounds pretty accurate from my experience, and is also why Naltrexone was terrible for me; I'd keep drinking and drinking until I could barely stand but never got that good buzz feeling. I guess it works for some people but it literally made me almost drink myself to death.

>from wikipedia
"Naltrexone has been best studied as a treatment for alcoholism.[7] Naltrexone has been shown to decrease the amount and frequency of drinking.[8] It does not appear to change the percentage of people drinking.[9] Its overall benefit has been described as "modest".[10]

Acamprosate may work better than naltrexone for eliminating drinking, while naltrexone may decrease the desire for alcohol to a greater extent.[11]

The Sinclair method is a method of using opiate antagonists such as naltrexone to treat alcoholism. The person takes the medication about an hour (and only then) before drinking to avoid side effects that arise from chronic use.[12][13] The opioid antagonist blocks the positive reinforcement effects of alcohol and allows the person to stop or reduce drinking.[13]"

Naltrexone anon here. The doctor I was seeing said I needed to either go to rehab, try Naltrexone, or try the other medication that made you feel violently ill if you took a swig of alcohol.

antabuse. it seems like a reasonable last resort, e.g., for in-patient rehab after a medically supervised taper, but it sounds scary as shit. naltrexone diminishes the euphoric effects of alcohol, but at least i'm not violently punished for consuming some. frankly, if i were prescribed antabuse, i just wouldn't take it.

I took naltrexone for a while back in the day and ended up buying a six pack. I still felt the alcohol for some reason. My most recent experience with substances in relation to alcohol abuse is something called campral or acomprosate. I was in a mental health place voluntarily and I was weaned off alcohol and given campral.

Within two days my mind took a turn. My pod had one other guy who was schizophrenic who I kind of befriended. By the end of it I couldn't stand him for no reason at all. Everytime I saw him I wanted punch his head in bad. Just face it though. Alcoholism is hard so why throw stumbling blocks in your way in the form of pharmaceuticals. Being an addict is almost a learning experience in that before all I was interested in was treating myself instead of any other issues.

I had aspergers, anxiety, and depression before I really started heavy drinking, so every time some professional suggested AA, rehab, or some kind of institution I just cringed at the thought of living with or being around strangers. That was literally the biggest fear for me, and not killing myself by drinking all day every day. And then everyone I tried to talk to about my issues said they couldn't help me because they didn't know what was a real problem with me and what was the alcohol. I've lost everything I had going for me and my 30's have fucking sucked so far, but I feel like I really have to hit hospital bed tier rock bottom before I'll be able to stop.

I'm the same. Most of my drinking life was because of agoraphobia and bi polar. There were days where all I did was manually breathe due to panic until I eventually fell asleep. I suspect I am an aspie too.

I'm 27 and I haven't worked in 7 years. I did hit a rock bottom and it changed everything. unfortunately the saying that people will only change after rock bottom actually holds some weight. My rock bottom was this. Waking up 7 years everyday doing the same routine and panicking through it. Alcohol giving me no pleasure or rest. One day my stomach just started getting bigger and my liver felt like a small football under my ribcage. Couldn't eat. turned yellow. got told in emergency 'dude you're liver is screwed you have liver failure' and all I did was is go 'oh thank God this is all going to be over soon'.

>oh thank God this is all going to be over soon

I've seen a number of doctors over the past few years and have honestly hoped I'd be able to say that after the test results came back on more than one occasion, because at least then it wouldn't just be me being an alcoholic, but an actual medical condition (not that addiction isn't a real condition - but I'm well aware that if I had the willpower I could change things, or could have earlier). Yet all the tests came back bad but nothing I couldn't recover from. Never had jaundice, and apparently don't have irreversible liver damage. I started really drinking when I went to grad school in NYC, mostly because I just couldn't deal with the crowds and didn't know anyone or know how to make any friends at that point. Ended up getting my masters but failed to be accepted into the PhD program, so now I have a ton of debt and an essentially useless degree.
