I don't see the point in getting drunk. I got drunk once and didn't think much of it... getting buzzed felt good, but getting to the point of "drunk" just kinda felt meh. I mean, you gradually lose control of your inhibitions (sometimes a good thing, admittedly) and motor functions and you often end up feeling like crap in the morning, even if you DIDN'T do something you regret.

Discuss.

Yeah, I mainly mean getting wasted. Some people go out looking to get wasted every weekend (or worse, every night) and I just don't get it. Seems like a waste of money, time, and brain cells.

I think it depends on your intention and state of mind.

regular every day fun/partying...having a few beers and maybe a couple shots and loosening up is all I want.

but if you're in a truly fucked up situation...drinking to oblivion is temporary solace from the pain. thinking too much about stressing out or getting wholly depressed can be worse for someone like me than just drinking a bottle of gin.

not the healthiest way to deal with shit...and I don't recommend it to anyone, because it can be habit forming. not me personally because I don't like being wasted all the time, but I'm certain that's how alchoholics are created.

but I have done it a few times in the past and it worked to get me over the barbed-wire hurdle.

to clarify...I think getting wasted is overrated for partying, but is a viable source of self-therapy.

getting drunk 5 days a week is over-rated. getting puking drunk and vomiting all over yourself is over-rated. getting drunk whilst trying to out-drink your friends is over-rated....

I don't know sad.gif

At parties I tend to drink a lot more than I should but I usually have fun, if I'm "social drinking" I don't usually get too terribly smashed.

I shouldn't drink at all, but I guess everyone's got a vice with something sad.gif

I dunno, I figure drinking 1 day a week whilst in college probably isn't that horrible....

It's because it makes you cool and everyone thinks you're awesome when you drink. OMG you're such a rebel for getting drunk. Same with smoking pot. Not to get off topic but smoking pot is the most overrated thing on the face of this earth. Nothing is better when you're high and if another person asks me if I want to get high before doing something because it'll be so much better I'm going to punch them, monster run on sentence.

so this thread title should be called "is being an alcoholic overrated" then yes it is

drinking even to the point of being drunk every once in awhile isnt over rated. if you are mature enough to drink there so be it
