My friend's mom just died at 59 from alcohol-related liver shutdown
Welp. Wife says she wants to have a couple cocktails and get nasty tonight. Was a good run boys
So you make virgin cocktails and she's down for buttstuff.
My brother died two years ago at 48 from liver failure from alcoholism.
Really sorry to hear. It can catch up to you before you realize. I’m 38. My doctor told me I probably would go into full liver failure in about a week and die. Said I was beyond his abilities to do anything. Fortunately I already had a top notch rehab set up and went days later. Saved my life. It’s poison to me. I can’t touch it the rest of my life. .
Goddamn I loved it for a long time but the party ended years ago for me.
That’s awesome you got the help you needed and you were strong enough to admit you needed help. Watching a loved one do it to themselves is very frustrating. My brother had pancreatitis at age 35 and got sober for two years after that but then went right back to it. Stay strong
Pancreatitis is probably the most painful thing I’ve ever experienced. The only medication that subsided some of the pain for me was dilaudid.
Edit; I’m sorry to read about your brother, I did not see that before I posted.
the party is just starting for you is how you should see it
had a personal matter come up last night so needed a drink. just had one bud light lime and one bud light draft
op said sober february not dry february so we are still going strong folks
Try to do it once a year when I feel it's getting out of control to kind of reset myself. I keep going in cycles where I'm good and only really drink socially to using it to manage stress and can't stop at just 1 or 2 and end up having 4-6 drinks every night.
Yesterday was extremely difficult just due to a shitty day, but I made it. Assuming I get through the weekend, I should be good for the rest of the month.
Jeez man. I thought 59 was young. Seems like the body can go quite a while even with very heavy drinking before it gives out completely.
Also, very sorry to hear that about Brother Paton
mission failed fellas. Got drunk and didn’t even get laid. Double whammy
Hopefully it was kid shit that interrupted and she didn't just let you get drunk by yourself & blow you off (that's maybe a bad choice of words lol)
You licked her ass for nothing?
I failed pretty miserably at this, guys
Made it too fast and apparently can't read. I expect that pic to be thrown back at me without the edit.
I will NOT be participating in this event. Please respect my decision
would you like to participate in my “fucked up February” ??
I would love to
is that blurring out bart's wang?
Don't think I'm going to make it
An interesting side note to this not drinking:
My wife does not drink, and never has. She doesn’t give me a hard time about my drinking except for when I’ve deserved it (like drinking too much when the kids are around, or getting out of hand at a party). However, since slowing down my drinking and not having any booze at all the last two weeks, I feel like it’s caused a really strange rift with our friend group. I’ll drink again in the future, though seemingly much less than before. Yet, our drinking friends almost seem insulted that I don’t want to drink right now and it’s like they’re interpreting it as my wife and I being judgmental of their drinking habits. We’re not. My cutting back has nothing to do with anyone else other than what I feel is right for me. It’s just a very odd, self-conscious reaction IMO.
First Friday night of February
You have to do what’s right for you. If they are true friends they will respect your decision and still want to hang out. If it’s too awkward maybe just bring it up and say that there is no judgment on your part. That decision when or if it comes is for you and you alone.
Made it through the weekend. What do I win?
My affection lol
I haven’t drank since super bowl
i was very drunk saturday but luckily nothing of note happened so back on the grind now
