i dont really do dumb shit when im drunk but it just makes me feel like shit
Agreed. I only started smoking a couple of months ago but my alcohol consumption has plummeted since. I always feel really bloated and gross when I get drunk but getting high makes me feel great. That said, I will get crossfaded every once in a while still
Dude I was a big time drunk in college. I used to get into fights, say dumb shit to women, just generally be a dick. I knew it was bad when I was known as “the drunk” in my FRATERNITY.
I moved to Cali and started smoking and besides a glass of wine or two at dinner or a beer at a sporting event, I don’t touch alcohol at all. Now I’m just the fun stoner guy laughing and eating Funyuns
idk if someone has expressed it to you, but im proud of you. so so proud of you, keep up the work dude
Every time I get drunk lol
i had some fireball the other night and i hated every second of it. smoking helps me sleep 😂
I use booze as a tool most of the time. Social lubricant or if I smoke myself paranoid more often than not.
A glass of whiskey is pretty good for pulling me back from the brink when I've over smoked
I miss alchohal, at least what it was like when I was in my early 20s. I had an ABSOLUTE BLAST with getting drunk at parties. Then year by year it just made me feel shittier and shittier. I stopped smoking weed from like 21 to 25, when I started again I immediately was like "well why would I even drink". I will on occasion, maybe even enough to get a touch crossfaded, but I always regret it. Now in my 30s I typically just tell people I don't have more than one or two drinks because I'll just feel like garbage in an hour or 2.
I'm a pretty heavy alcoholic with over 30 years of practice. I'm too high strung to drink, I start picking fights pretty quick. I smoke my balls off, but January 6, Insurrection Day itself made 2 years without a drop.
I love a drink, I fucking hate all the pissing it makes me do and the hangover the next day. This is why if I want a buzz, 99% of the time is a joint.
Yeup, when I used to drink after I broke the seal I was getting up to pee like every 10 mins, was so annoying, especially after my hip operation, it made getting up worse so I just quit drinking.
I absolutely hate alcohol. I'm trying to detox for a job and I keep failing all my at home tests. It's really upsetting to me that I'm not going to be allowed to move up in the world because I use a different drug than my boss. I hate this fucking country.
Cheat. This is America
Me a guy who enjoys both alcohol and weed looking at the comments:
"Haha, I'm in danger :)"
Oh I don't drink, just drugs for me, thanks.
Every time I say this at a party I get weird looks hahah
Ever since I started THC (about 3 months ago) i've been drinking way less and I love it.
I have more fun, more focus, more motivation and I sleep better without feeling like shit in the morning.
Here’s what happens to me. I pour some some bourbon and let it rest for about 20 minutes. In the meantime I get high, 20 minutes comes around and I’m like “ehhh…I don’t really want this anymore.”
I’ve had half a bottle of vodka in my freezer for like 5 years
Might as well use it for cleaning
I can count on 1 hands the number of times I have had more than 3 drinks in a day sience I started using. Been almost 6 years. Every time I'm like, Yep, that's why....
Weed has never brought on shame. Alcohol on the other hand.
Shame after a weed session : ho no I fall asleep super early, everyone know that I am a light weight now. I shouldn't have alternate crisp and chocolate all night.
Shame after an alcoholic night : I don't remember anything, Why do I have bruises everywhere and where all that chips come from ?
I don't smoke because every time I smoke, I realize why I use a vaporizer instead.
I'm stuck in Alabama with no friends; a disabled Veteran with PTSD, depression, knee pain, etc. and no access to cannabis.
How can we help get you in a medical state. No veteran should have to go through this!
I become the world’s largest douche when I get drunk. I’m either really mean of being really stupid.
On pot the worst i end up being is quiet. Mostly because I’m cringing over past douche behavior while drunk.
It's okay to make mistakes as long as we learn from them.
Sounds like you already learned better behavior, so it's okay to forgive yourself and quit dwelling on it.
For alternative things to do while on pot, might I suggest eating yummy foods, laughing at funny shows, and enjoying nice music.
More than a couple drinks and I'm hugging a toilet so I can 100% relate.
Couldn’t tell you the last early morning or evening run I missed. That’s because I don’t drink I smoke. It’s made such a huge difference in my life as an adult. I can see my abs and I’m never irritable. I’m a fan and so is everyone around me
Being cross faded is one of life’s greatest pleasures, if you can get the balance right
I’m a nicer pothead than I am a drunk
I don't like to drink heavily anymore. I like to drink things that I think taste good and get a small buzz going. Weed is definitely the more enjoyable intoxication.
I dont even enjoy the feeling of being drunk anymore
I think they compliment each other nicely. Nothing better than drinking a really citrusy ipa in the backyard while smoking a jay. And now that it’s legal in New York , smoking outside the bar after a long night of drinking is the perfect way to end the night. I’m lucky I Don’t get cross faded
I was an alcoholic but then I started smoking pot and have been enjoying that much more.
So true. Every time I get tempted when I'm with my bud or my girlfriend is drinking, I only take 1 large swallow or drink 1 beer.
A pleasant little buzz that I can get the taste out of my mouth in a few minutes😂
I love both! Both put me in a great mood and give me different buzzes. Mixing them at the same time tends to fuck me up, though. The only problem with alcohol for me is the hangover afterwards, though even that is minimized by drinking as much water as possible. But other than that, there's no reason for me not to keep enjoying both! I only drink maybe once every 2 weeks though, whereas I have a puff most days.
I get sick/have stomach issues when I drink so I try not to lol
drinks are nastyyyyyyy I'm yakking before I can even enjoy myself
There are just so many consequences to drinking. No me gusta nada.
Drank last night for the first time in a while.
Relationship with pot strengthened.
I realize the next morning. Being drunk is great. Being hung over is not.
I actually seem to have given upon drinking during COVID. I prefer to smoke at home and because pubs weren't open, I just smoked instead of drank while home. Now pubs are back I haven't even been bothered to go.
Am going out for a meal tonight and have decided to drive in rather than taxi and drink.
I enjoy not wasting half a day feeling hungover.
Except if you're like me and have Cannabinoid hyperemesis syndrome, then there really is no winner.
I don't understand all the alcohol hate going on. I consume both and while I prefer weed, getting buzzed can be just as nice. If you're the kind of person to always overdo your drinking you're just as likely to overdo your weed consumption. While I feel like shit if I drink too much, I don't have an existential crisis and overwhelming feeling of dread like I do when I get too high. It's all about knowing your limits!!
Step One: go onto drug related subreddit
Step Two: say something to effect of “alcohol sucks, am I right”
Step Three: collect internet points 😎
Lol every time. Comment section always an alliance of high schoolers, ex alchies and the people who just discovered weed
can relate but drinking is fun most of the time just depends for me
I don't like the hangovers that come with drinking, though I do like the taste of a good heffeweissen or bourbon.
Nope, I don't get hangovers, but boy when I fucking do
Yep. My sixteen-year-old son just recently saw me drink a Twisted Tea and he couldn't stop talking about it for several days because he had never seen me drink! I guess I didn't realize it had been quite that long LOL!
Can we ban alcohol posts on this subreddit? I’m subscribed to r/trees not r/Alcoholhate.
its like 20 year olds who just found weed and alcoholics posting here lol
pro tip guys: you can enjoy a nice drink or two without getting wasted
And the bail money
Yes! And my friends alcoholic are calling me stoner, because I smoke too much. Yeah...instead I should be drinking 5 beers per day, even if I'm throwing up from alcohol and feel like miserable shit few days after. And if I drink with them, they are annoyed by my drunk self.
Just leave me with my levander lemonade and joint.
My thoughts indeed!
I like drinking whilst im drinking with my friends. But i always will prefere weed. Some of my friends dont like weed so if we party with them we all drink. I just hate the aftermath. And also alcohol without a mix is disgusting except 'berliner luft' wich tastes like a mint mouthwash for some reason
I used to love drinking, very rarely proper drinking to get drunk since I prefer a buzz when drinking. After I started taking edibles I hardly touched booze. Maybe like a beer once a month. It’s just not fun anymore.
I like q drink, but I've learned with practice how to mitigate most of the drawbacks here. I don't have as easy access to weed as I used to, but when I get it again I'll probably knock the drink on the head for the most part
Yep every time
Why not both?
Ill take a pot head over a drunk anyday..drunks suck
As someone who is trying to pass a piss test for a new job here soon. I hear you.
To add to yours
7. Throw up after taking aforementioned Advil, contemplate whether or not it has time to get into your system. Take another plus two Tylenol.
8. Smoke a fattie so that the munchies cancel out the pukies and sleep your entire day away
I like having a few drinks, but I don't like getting drunk. But, I'm also a brewer and wine maker.
the thing i keep hearing from people is "i don't drink because I don't like feeling like shit the next day." You don't have to drink to get drunk, I always tell people that Moderation is key. If you buy a sixer you don't have to drink it all. I am not telling anyone to drink if you don't want to.
I used to drink so much in my mid-teens because I barely had access to weed, but once I got a steady supply I just became kind of repulsed by alcohol. So yeah definitely relate.
Kind of hungover this morning and yea, 100% agree.
I didn't drink much to begin with because I didn't like the after-effects. Not a hangover, but like a 24 hour boost in my depression. I feel tired and angry all the next day. Since I found weed, I hardly drink at all anymore. I just have a beer now and then because I like beer.
Just drank like my college days for the first time in months on Wednesday- had the worst hangover I ever had and felt like I burnt my entire esophagus lining from all the puking. Told my friends I’ll stick to my “medicine” from here on out!
^(This just happened to me last weekend. The green is never mean.)
The hangover is rarely worth it man
I’ve never been drunk in my life. Just never had an interest in it 🤷🏻♀️ Drugs are much more my speed.
I sometimes fancy a glass of wine, sometimes I'll have a couple but I'm a huge lightweight and end up getting quite drunk especially if I drink it too quickly. I end up always hating it and regretting it. Never regretted smoking any amount of weed though.
Omg! Me too!🤣🤣
