People are so weird in their obsession with alcohol and getting drunk…

[–] [email protected] 49 points 2 months ago

I felt this way at one time when I was younger. Now I don't give a shit what people want to do with their own bodies.

I think what you're missing is that getting drunk is very fun.

This is it.

Some people drink 1 tequila, do a Hangover, and go, "Drinking is bad" smh

To be fair, alcohol is a poison.

So is caffeine but we love coffee, tea, and chocolate too.

I get where you're going but how many coffees does it take to kill a person vs how many beers

[–] meliaesc 2 points 2 months ago* (last edited 2 months ago)

About 4g of caffeine is lethal, https://www.npr.org/2023/12/07/1217758671/a-lawsuit-says-a-man-died-after-drinking-a-highly-caffeinated-beverage-at-panera

The lethal dose of alcohol is about 5 to 8 grams per kilogram of body weight.

Well, to be fair, as a 6 foot tall person I can only bandle one, maybe two drinks because of my genetics.

Drinking isn't inherently bad, but it certainly isn't too fun for me!

Not to me, I’ve never understood that sentiment. I can act as silly as I want without being drunk, and I hate how it turns other people into almost different people. If I wanted to be friends with their drunken selves, I wouldn’t be friends with their sober selves.

[–] Donkter 14 points 2 months ago

Yeah I've noticed there's a divide in the population in which half the people "know what it's like" to get drunk, and it really isn't for them. And they're baffled by people who love to get drunk. It's a different experience. People don't get drunk just "to act as silly as they want", that should be obvious.

some people prefer therapy,

The rest of us just drink until we can't remember why we're stressed.

Don't knock it till you've tried it.

That sounds like a one way trip to becoming an alcoholic but you do you ig

[–] NeptuneOrbit 29 points 2 months ago (1 children)

It's a joke. It starts off cute and altruistic and then it finishes silly and kind of bad.

[–] [email protected] 26 points 2 months ago (1 children)

It's fun if you don't overdo it, as long as it's not an obsession and as long as it doesn't interfere with your life. Like all things, moderation is key.

[–] [email protected] 2 points 2 months ago

Can be fine if you overdo it
