It runs in my family, I have had love ones die from it and seen relationships ruined by it.  I sometimes drink too much for a bit then mellow out for a long time.  I was raised with alcohol since in my teens, all of my friends drink heavily at least once a week.  I was just wondering what your own experiences are.  I have had times that I thought I was an alcoholic, but I really was using it to cover up pain and wasn't addicted.  Now I just use it in moderation.  Fitting St. Patricks day topic........ beer

From a really young age I was permitted alcohol.
My dad allowed me beer when I was 9, and I got a bit funny on wine once, probably aged 8.

Although it's always been available to me, I've never liked alcohol, and right now I never drink, nor do I want to.
Just not interested I guess.

Then again there are no alcoholics in my family, not a single one.

I think there's something like an alcohol gene, and a drug gene that makes it run in the family.

i saw a few family friends die earlier on in life from drink and from then on i've never in my life gotten really properly drunk. a few drinks is more than enough to help me enjoy myself. is suppose i've got my problems with smoking dope, but i've always been able to stop for long periods when i've felt myself get in too deep. just hope it never gets past that stage.

the nature of any addiction is a horrible thing.

I dont merely come from a family of drunks but i come from a family of psychotic,violent drunks.

my dad told me stories of his grandpa chopping a guy up with an axe while he was drunk for cheating him in cards, also told me of his grandpa shooting it out in the streets with other guys while he watched

my uncle is a violent drunk and had to have 3/4ths of his stomach taken out due to drinking and he still puts away a case of beer with no problems even though with 1/4 of a stomach he gets drunk after 3.

my dad was a violent drunk, pulling guns on my mom, beating her up, keeping us up scared all hours of the night

i remember several times being a young child and walkin in a room where my dad was drinking and he'd be sittin at his stereo listening to country music drunk with his 357 magnum to his head.

the other side *my moms side of the family are pot and pill heads

ive never been drunk because i refuse to grow up and be like my dad.

dude i could tell u some stories.

my dad got drunk and drove by my house, by this time he and my mom had been divorced for about 5 years, she had a bf and he is a jealous maniac, so he always said he'd kill a dude if he dated my mom

one night while he was drunk, he drove by my house, stopped outside my mom's bedroom window and shot 2 shots through her bedroom wall, each bullet missed her head by like 2 to 3 inches. if the first shot had woke her up and she set up, the 2nd wouldve drilled her.

my uncle use to chase my mamaw around the house with an ax and then try to come break in our house.

there were some very scary moments i experienced as a child and id say its why i dont drink.

i really dont like alcohol. not about what  it does to you or anything.

just don't like the taste.

so if i drink i'll put 95% juice and 5% drink.

and usualy when i go out, i'll get a fruitjuice or a coke or something. i dont need alcoholo to be crazy, and i rather "feel" that i'm having fun ...

my g/f loves to drink (american sorority girls i guess it helps), well, it' s kinda fun when she's drunk .... (anal, facial ...) (my god ! what am i talking about ! ) lol.

but when i eat, restaurant and all > WINE is a rule.
but here in france we don't consider wine as alcohol .....
a good "alsace" white wine (gewurstraminer) or a great "red" ... always good. (i dont like hot wine tho)



(man, D's story is something ... but it's cool to see that even with a childhood like that, you can grow up a smart ass like D lol Smiley

I have a theory that if you're introduced to alchohol (beer, red whine, whiskey)at a young age, just sips, around every two months till you're around 8 years old, you'll end up hatin' the stuff. I do? Wink

My mother was an alcoholic for over 10 years. There is nothing to be proud of when one is pissed out of their own heads.

Do you know what parents are capable of when drunk ? I do.

I guess I was lucky.  My parents split when I was 5.  My dad is what I call a functional alcoholic:  never drinks before or at work, never drinks before noon or weekends, etc.  Here's the thing though, he was raised in a very stern and unloving home.  His father never ONCE said to him, "I love you," and never hugged him.  My brother was 11 at the time of the divorce and is very much like my dad...but was not what you would call a "functioning" alcoholic.  It took alot of ugly shit for him to finally go to rehab in his early 30's.  He's been sober now for about 4 years.  Being 6 years younger, I was able to learn from his mistakes, do well in school/athletics/college/etc., and the rest is history...every time I hear Metallica's Sad But True, I think of my dad and what my brother once was.  It may sound strange, but I also think of my dad as the Emperor from Star Wars who turned my brother into a cold Darth Vader-type, and all along I was like Luke Skywalker breaking the cycle...oh well.

I now have a wonderful son almost 2 years old, and he gets TONS of hugs.  I'm still rules-oriented and teach right from wrong, but he gets tons-o-hugs! 

I have a drink or 2 once or twice a week.  My worst drinking was getting drunk once a week back in college rockin' out to GNR!  Some of my best memories are being totally drunk with my friends screamin' Night Train, Estranged, or Coma back in our dorm rooms before hittin' the town.  Oddly enough, Smiley, most of my big drinking was done before I was 21.   Wink  You can fight and die for your country, but you can't drink a beer.  How ridiculous is that?

I know this is a long post, sorry about that, but it's a great issue.  One last thing, I really think alcoholism doesn't have much to do with alcohol itself.  Alcoholics in my opinion tend to be addictive people with addictive personalities.  Some people are workaholics, foodaholics, etc.  I also know plenty of Born Again wack-jobs who used to be alcoholics, they just substituted one drug (alcohol) for another (religion).  That's not to say that all religious people are zealots, these particular folks just tend to take things way too far...like the aforementioned alcoholics!

Oh yeah, and Jessica and D, I know where you're coming from as my brother threatened to blow my head off with his loaded gun.  He just got home drunk, made my mom cry, and I threatened to punch him out.  He responded with the gun threat, and I backed down.  I know he was dead serious...very scary stuff. 

 peace

I used to be a very heavy beer drinker. I have toned it way down in the last few years. I do know i have done some really stupid shit while being? under the influence, which is one of the many reasons i have slacked way back. It just isnt worth it and the hangovers get worse the older i get. My friends are all still heavy beer drinkers and i find it very hard to socialize with them anymore, i may have some beers with them every now and then but i just cant sit and drink myself into an oblivion with them anymore. Sitting here looking back on all of it, i really don't know how i used to do it, i am just lucky i never hurt or killed anyone or myself driving drunk like a complete fool.? I have just lost the whole appeal of drinking, one thing i did find out is how quickly alcoholism sneaks up on you, it starts by going out on a Friday or Saturday night with friends and getting loaded to drinking a twelve pack every night to just cope with shit. I am just glad i got out of the grip of that shit.
