I should mention that I'm one of those people, that while drunk, am extremely giddy, happy and joking around.  Haven't actually been an 'angry drunk.'

Eventually I want to get to a place where I live without it in any shape.

Moderate drinking is a wonderful thing.  It adds to the richness and sweetness of life.

Excessive drinking is a hellish thing.

Abstinence is... something I'm thankful to have avoided.  But, if you're going to err to one extreme or the other, teetotalling is preferable.

I had a guy come into work today to pick up a cheque. He was almost in tears and clutching his kidney/liver area (I don't know where stuff is - I'm no organ genius), he told me not to "get into heavy drinking". The guy reeked of booze from every pore and he gave me quite a shock. We had to sort him out quick, as he said he had a hospital appointment and they were giving him medication. This dude really looked in agony and like he didn't look to have long on this mortal coil either. I felt real bad for the dude, but obviously there was nothing I could do for him. I'm gonna go easy on the drink tonight, because he really has put me off annihilating myself on a regular basis and I certainly don't want to end up in that state.

Liver damage is very common with long term alcohol abuse and can lead to cirrhosis which can in turn lead to death.

I'll drink on occasion, but I won't binge or get drunk.  I have way too many friends who can't have a "good time" without some sort of intoxicant (whether that be alcohol or weed), and I think it's just sad.  I wish people my age didn't need to drink to have fun. Bluesad

I don`t really believe anyone really needs to drink to have fun. I never have. But some people do think that they do...

After the day i've had, I need two things:

1. To hear my boyfriend's voice

2. A stout glass of red wine.

preferably both at the same time!

Seconded.

I have a friend who doesn't drink all that much (by English standards anyway) but just seems to live for a bottle at the end of the week - which makes me angry if anything. Hell he's a great guy, and really comes out his shell when he's drinking, probably the 'healthiest' drunk personality wise I know but it does some wierd.

However I remember Stewart Lee suggesting something on a debate show in the UK, when the spectre of binge drinking reared its head once more in the press. The MPs mentioned various figures about the work hours lost, cost to the health service etc. Lee remarked that they'd probably never figure out how many hours are maintained and how many people are kept balanced by the prospect of unwinding at the end of a grinding work week with a beer. Arguably an almost glib point but there's definately truth to it.

Personally I do loathe the clubbing/binge culture you'll find in any British town on a weekend and I tend to stick to water if I ever get dragged along if only to keep my wits about me. Particularly in Liverpool, 1 in 10 guys seem to go out to the bars on a Friday just to start a bloody fight.

But then I love a night in the pub with some good friends and nothing brings me more pleasure than popping down my local in the middle of the day, sitting in one of its dark little alcoves and reading a good book with a pint. As Powell says, alcohol as a flavouring to events can make them more pleasurable but if the final goal is just to get wankered and puke, to quote William Shatner: I can't behind that.

My brother killed himself with alcohol.  He had a crippling arthritis the last several years of his life which contributed to his abuse of booze.  He was not yet 58 years old.  All of the conditions that contributed to his decline (ulcers, perforated intestine, gallbladder infection, heart failure, pneumonia) were all caused by his drinking.  He was an alcoholic since he was probably 18, though he was a lot older than me and I cannot know for sure, except that when he was a newly married man, I know he got drunk every night.
