    Ok, as some of you may know in here, my ex is an alcoholic, shes always had a big problem with liquor and never knew when to quit. Im talking a bottle of rum or gin or vodka gone in one night, sometimes two nights. Or 12 or 18 packs of beer gone in 1 to 2 days with me probably having 2 or 3 out of those, I've never been a hard liquor person, so I stuck mostly to the beer.

    But anyway...heres my question.
    I used to be a bit of a beer connoisseur. I never got to the point of being hammered or drunk. But it just intrigued me to try new ales/lagers/whathaveyou from all parts of the world

    Now, anytime I go to a bar ,which is very rare, last time was probably Halloween. I kinda get freaked out and probably have like one or at most 2 Miller Lites. I just get wierded out and think stuff like "What if I end up like HER?" or "Now Im just like her" or whatever. My point being, anytime I even think of liquor, it just creeps me out and makes me totally uninterested and kind of grossed out by it. It's a shame, because It was kinda like a hobby with one of my closest friends who helped me through out this struggle. He keeps telling me that I have to be myself, and that hobby was a part of me, and I shouldn't let that change because I never drank to get drunk or to get rid of problems or anything. I even had a big imported beer collection on a rack that I gave to him because I didn't want it in my house anymore. I don't have ANY alcohol in my house anymore, and he says I can have it back whenever I want, but I don't know..
    Am I overreacting? Or am I doing the right thing?

    Sounds like a pretty normal reaction to an intimate exposure to alcoholism, and I can't think of a reason for you to try to "fix" this. You and your drinking buddy need to think of something else to do together.

    I hear crack gets you high as fuck. :noes: :noes: :noes: :noes:

    I watched drugs destroy my family first hand. (parents got arrested for pot, lost teh jobs, alchoholism/drug problems arose and family completley fell apart and ended in divorce)

    so now, i cant stand even to hear about people doing drugs, when i do hear it i get disgusted and want to kick them where they make babies. i think its a natural reaction to distance yourself from things that you have witnessed cause someone harm. its a natural human reaction.

    if i witness you die a grusome death in a motorcycle accident. i'm not likley to get on a bike any time soon.

    thats my .02 :dunno:

    Thanks for your input and Im sorry to hear about your family :sadwavey:
    Yeah, I don't know, I just don't even think of it anymore. Well part of me does because it intrigued me and some of the bottles were really nice. But I don't know, Its just that every time I see it, or drink it, I feel disgusted.
    I work Security in a hospital and a lot of the times we deal with drunks and OD's and sometimes they're just so fucking hammered, and they stink so bad that I almost puke or wanna beat the crap out of them., Drunks are just so fucking obnoxious.


    That doesnt sound like a bad idea. I actually have written a lot of poetry/lyrics about her and her crap :hsd: may be a little too emo though for some folks, I was listening to Dashboard Confessional for months after all the crap happened so I was kinda influenced by that.
