Is killing yourself slowly with alcohol possible?

Yes, I know it must be painful.

Let me work on testing out this theory. I’ll get back to you . . .

Amy Winehouse, Veronica Lake, WC Fields, Oliver Reed, Alexander Godunov, F. Scott Fitzgerald, Dylan Thomas, Billie Holiday, Jack Kerouac, Richard Burton, and David Cassidy all died that way.

I prefer killing me softly with his song.

Possibly the single stupidest question ever asked on DL.

by Anonymousreply 6March 31, 2024 10:18 PM

I no longer drink hard liquor, but drink a bottle of wine and about five beers a day. I'm not fat YET, but at 45, it won't take long.

Then you must be new, r6.

R7 That is WAYYY TOO MUCH. Please cut back

by Anonymousreply 10March 31, 2024 10:21 PM

R7 either 6 beers OR 1 bottle of wine a day. NOT BOTH!

This is one of those questions that social drinkers never ask, unless they’re deeply concerned about an alcoholic.

by Anonymousreply 12March 31, 2024 10:23 PM

It's a miserable way to go. In addition to pain in joints and various organs, barfing up and shitting bloody mucous, you can't enjoy food and you're itchy all over.

You probably have a bacterial infection that is affecting your brain and how you absorb alcohol. You need to dry out and talk to a doctor about antibiotics.

I don't, but I don't want to suffer much, either.

I know. Impossible!

R7 "a bottle of wine and about five beers a day"

Is that considered a lot? Seems like a reasonable amount to me

Why slowly and not quickly?

Google "esophageal varices" - it's a terrible, terrible way to die.

by Anonymousreply 20March 31, 2024 10:31 PM

I do, r16. My life is just not what I thought it would be at this age. I don't care for my country (Brazil),don't have many friends, single, no kids (male, BTW), I work from home for a salary that covers my bills, and I have a little bit left. The job is easy, but I hate it!

Good question, r18. I guess I'm just a coward.

R17, what part of Britain are you from?

Smooches, R23!

I'm the last person to turn to with advice on drinking, or anything, really, so I don't judge.

Glad I made you laugh--now can I fix you a plate of fresh calf's liver w/caramelized sweet onions, lime cilantro rice, and a lovely salad with romaine, colored mini-bellpeppers and heirloom tomatoes? That'll give you a nice base upon which to add drink.

Tea cakes with a dusting of grated nutmeg for dessert.

R21 do you have a big dick?

by Anonymousreply 29March 31, 2024 10:52 PM

Ha, R27, that's a good one. But, no. Last week I realized I hadn't cooked calf's liver in a very long time, so I made an Easter dinner of it for my old Dad. Kitchen smells delicious.

Been here 20+ years now, so pretty sure I predate Greg.

Though I do love my prunes... so, there's that.

I'm average in everything, r29!

❤ r25!

I'll probably won't be able to have a coherent conversation very soon, so, forgive me if I "disappear."

And yes, I'll look at this thread tomorrow morning and feel very ashamed.

To quote Charlie Brown: Good grief!

As always you guys are all great!😘

Please, Honey/R31, you'll have to get up pretty early in the morning to top me in the "disappear" category; bane of my existence, but 30 years of therapy haven't cured me of it yet.

Please be kind to yourself.

A bottle of wine and 5 beers per day is alcoholism. There's no "cutting back." OP already did cut back (stopped using hard liquor). OP needs to medically detox.

by Anonymousreply 37April 1, 2024 12:40 AM

Yes, but do it classically! Consumption!

Sadly, a friend of mine did that. He was a beautiful soul, and a very quiet drinker. He was fine and then, boom, we all got a call that he was in organ failure. His liver was shutting down. Died a few days later.

Very sad.
