Re: Ok Guys, How Many Beers ?


I prefer being a drunk. "Drunk" is easier to spell than al..alcho...hmmm...alcholic*, I don't make enough money to be an alcholic, and I don't have to attend all those da**ed meetings.

'Alcoholic' according to spell check.

Re: Ok Guys, How Many Beers ?


Since I started this thread....
I am not saying those that have a beer or 2 every day after work are alcoholics.. Not at all. Those who have a drink or two after work like getting high. Plain and simple. People are afraid to admit that alcohol is a drug, it has a mind altering effect and people consume booze, whether just one drink or ten, to get a high ( buzz).
" after a hard days work I like to go home and crack open a cold one and relax" .. That means the beer has some sort of effect that makes you FEEL GOOD.. You get high.
I knew a few guys that did some coke once a week and they held a job, supported a family and were productive citizens. I also knew guys that had drug problems and screwed their lives up.
I also knew guys that drank on weekends and were very productive and successful. I knew guys that had a problem with booze and it ruined not only their lives, but everyone around them. Taking the law out of it, what the hell is the difference...they are both mind altering substances.

I'm tying to figure out how you get "high" from being drunk?

I usually just get beer googles from being drunk.

This is simply not true, read here


and Power yes alcohol IS a depressant, you do NOT get HIGH off alcohol...you simply do not know what you are talking about... read here

Oxford English Dictionary says that being high can come from alcohol.

http://oxforddictionaries.com/defini...sh/high?q=high

Quote:
5 [predic.] informal feeling euphoric, especially from the effects of drugs or alcohol:
she wasn’t tipsy, just a little high
some of them were high on Ecstasy

Give me a break CScalf, alcohol is mind altering and people consume it because it makes them feel good. Qualudes were a depressant and people loved to party with those back in the day.
Why not just admit that drinking booze is no different than any other drug. Not as bad as heroin or crack of course but its a drug.

What's wrong with heroin & crack? a little hit off the ole crack pipe before work gets you motivated

Drinking booze is a lot different...some drugs you can be addicted with your first hit, snort, shot, smoke...not booze...

Re: Ok Guys, How Many Beers ?


Takes about 3 to give me a buzz. Can vary with the brand of beer.

Also why is MGD the beer of choice? I find Miller high life much more tasty. Even though they are apparently the same recipe but not cold filtered.
