Being an alcoholic. Acting like a fool.

I have so many stories that not one stands out.

Ditto.

OP, what's up with the survey questions? You keep avoiding that.

Re: What is your worst experience with alcohol/drugs?

Being beaten by an alcholic, traumatic memories that do not go away. For example, my father hurling a hammer and nearly hitting my mother in the head while the hammer breaks the wall behind her. Tired of the lying just to cope and protect him. Somehow, he turned my mother into an abuser as well. Her still makign excuses for him till this day.

Cousin killed by drunk driver. She was the bright spot to her parents, attending medical school. They placed their financial future into her and her success.

I am such a tree hugger because it gives me wood!

Re: What is your worst experience with alcohol/drugs?

In my 20s out with a bunch of friends, playing a game known as "Quarters". Idea of the game is to grasp the quarter in the thumb and forefinger and drop it on the table in such a way that it bounces into a small glass. Takes a good amount of skill and practice and of course gets more difficult every time someone gets the quarter in the glasses and points to their target and says "DRINK!". They decided to pick on me in particular since I had brought a girl with me and we were early in the dating process.

So with all the winners constantly pointing at me to drink I consumed a LOT of beer in a SHORT amount of time and was very rapidly quite drunk. I remember looking around the table in a sort of fog, it was almost like an out of body experience where I was looking at myself from a distance and all of a sudden my mouth opened and I projectile vomited what seemed to be gallons of beer/puke mix all over the table. Never saw so many people push their chairs back from a table so quickly and in such unison. I still recall the "Holy Sh!ts" and all the laughter as I dragged myself to my feet and staggered outside for fresh air. The girl met me outside and drove me home. She wasn't too happy with me.

Re: What is your worst experience with alcohol/drugs?

My cousin, my best childhood friend died a week and a half ago. They put in her obit that she died of a congenital heart defect, which is technically correct. They didn't mention the heroin and how it contributed, and I don't blame them. She was 31.

Forget enough to get over it, remember enough so it doesn't happen again.

Re: What is your worst experience with alcohol/drugs?

@leec, what exactly is your deal? You keep starting threads about the worst/best of something and then never come back to them. Are you doing research for something or something?

People don't get a free pass to cheat just because their marriage sucks.

I did but the whole thing crashed and burned shortly thereafter, but not due to the drinking incident.

I come from a big irish catholic family. we grew up surrounded by alcohol and drugs, from a very young age. I'm positive that she won't be the only one to die young. There have been a few other close calls already.

And no one is learning from it either. My other cousins were tailgating at her memorial service. When i noticed it and pointed it out, my little brother said, "she would have wanted it that way". He almost died 2 years ago, got a DUI and wrapped his truck around a telephone pole. Went to rehab. Didn't slow him down at all.
