Question for regular alcohol drinkers, when you're sober do you ever feel like your'e in a psychotic state? It seems more and more, that during the periods in between drinking sessions, I feel like I'm going insane until I have some drinks, like not insane from a desire to drink or craving, just in general

>> No.10613373

Those are withdrawals my friend, i get extremely anxious, shaky, moody, and even have some auditory hallucinations when i abstain a couple days from drinking

>> No.10613381

I've never felt like a psychotic.

I generally notice feeling "cloudy", I can't explain it other than brain fog. I drink once a week and when I stopped completely for about 4 weeks the world got more in focus and sharper

>> No.10613383

Yeah, same. I also get physically ill and it's making me afraid to not drink.

>> No.10613391

best way to stop making it happen and tough it out. abstain for at least 2 weeks then drink no more than 2 nights a week

Thank you mods for killing that piece of shit general, it was cancer for too long and now im glad we can actually have threads about whisky and scotch again.

they were the only good threads left on /ck/ imho so it makes sense to ban them here.

>> No.10613598

this is becuase you use alcohol as a coping mechanism.
you have a shitty outlook on life, or possibly anxiety is rushing the thoughts too much.

or you are horribly malnurished, or possibly recovering from a ketoacidosis episode.
don't eat too much before bed.
drink some water or sports drink.
take a cold shower in the morning.

why do people get addicted to a shit tier drug like alcohol and not a good one like pot?

>> No.10613613

because alcohol is physically addictive and weed isn't.

you sure about that?

That's alcoholism

I've heard addiction is genetic. that wouldn't make it physically addictive.

cbf to link anything, just google it you pleb. stop abruptly after smoking heavily and you have mild insomnia for 1 day. do the same after drinking heavily and you might die.

A lot of people don’t realise this.
Alcohol is not addictive, the term is a crutch for denial and for absolving oneself of personal responsibility.
Same goes for sugar, overeating etc.
Opiates for example are a true example of an addictive substance, totally different ball game.

0/10. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Delirium_tremens
>Delirium tremens (DTs) is a rapid onset of confusion usually caused by withdrawal from alcohol.[2] When it occurs, it is often three days into the withdrawal symptoms and lasts for two to three days.[2] Physical effects may include shaking, shivering, irregular heart rate, and sweating.[1] People may also see or hear things other people do not.[2] Occasionally, a very high body temperature or seizures may result in death.[2] Alcohol is one of the most dangerous drugs from which to withdraw.[5]

this should be educational. i've been addicted to both, do elaborate. alcohol is harder to kick than heroin by the way.

I'm a social drinker (meaning I drink once a week at most) and I'm really glad that you made this thread. Everyone should read it to know the consequences of alcohol abuse.

I wish you luck fighting this addiction. The sooner you start quitting the easier it will be.

>> No.10613721

if alcohol was addictive like cocaine, opiates or nicotine they wouldn't be able to stop easily after three days of heavy usage but many people do. there just seems to be a large base of stupid pathetic people who are willing to pay doctors to reassure them its not their fault.

>> No.10613724

>I’ve been addicted to both
Nope you haven’t.
Alcohol isn’t addictive. You had an alcohol dependance.

This is why non free healthcare doesn’t work.

>> No.10613758

it does work. the NHS spreads healthcare costs for everyone among everyone. A bankrupt tramp could and if he needed it would, have millions of pounds of care, the cost of which to him would be £8 for the standard flat-rate drug prescription. Everything else can be relied on at any time by anyone in the country, and the bill upon leaving will be £0. It has been this way since 1948,

You can literally die if you do that.

>> No.10613775

yeah i just read that as soon as i hit submit. never mind. but, it's the first time i've seen someone say that non-free doesn't work. i mean, there's both in the uk. the free NHS forces the quality of privately employed doctors through the roof. if people can get healthcare for free, they'd better be a fucking good doctor to charge the rates they do.

>> No.10613776

I think you are way overblowing the symptoms of alcohol withdrawal. I've drank heavily for a week straight before and didn't feel anything. You could possibly die if you are already old and feeble or malnourished or something.

>why do people get addicted to a shit tier drug like alcohol and not a good one like pot?

Personally, weed makes me anxious and have racing thoughts, which are problems I already have, weed just makes them worse and when I regularly smoke weed I become the most introverted anti-social person you could ever meet. Alcohol has the complete opposite effect, it slows down my thoughts and makes me more comfortable socializing.

good luck ever getting an 8/10 after highschool if youre still piping away on weed rather than drinkin vodka with girls
