i used to work in bars. some nights i would have 20 drinks a night at a time that i weighed 60kg. i had a very serious mental illness and i needed to black out. part of my drinking less was as a result of addressing and resolving many of my problems. if you are drinking a great deal in the way i was you may want to think more about what you are trying to escape from and look at resolving those issues.
the other thing by which i have come to drink less is that i have started to enjoy the feelings of being drunk just a little bit. if i drink three beers slowly, often i am a bit tipsy at the end. it can be fun to wander around doing things being a bit tipsy, rather than needing to drink more and more and more. you’re more coherent and you know what’s going on, you can enjoy it more. you don’t know what you’re doing when you’re blind drunk, you can’t really enjoy it because you’re hardly even there. 3 years ago
