Is drinking a wearing experience for you? For me, like for everyone, the way I react to this depends on the type of the drink and my previous state (like if I have eaten anything or not) but it's not a pleasure! I feel like I need to focus more on functioning, I waste more energy. I feel as if someone hit me on the head - that's a perfect explanation of how I cope with alcohol. Does any of you react in this way? Is it a type of hypersensitivity? Do any of you react differently?
Also, I hate how alcohol steals my ability to think, to notice things. I like thinking!

the same for me. so I try to do not over tipsy level, I'm a slow drinker that helps, but being polish somtimes you have no choice during social gatherings, especially weddings, when there is no way avoiding having one shot with everyone
i have stopped drinking completely because it increases depression
When i was younger i drank like a fish as it was copy cat behaviour , I would always regret getting drunk when i got home as being in a room would make me spin out and end up being sick and i could not think as i want to .
If i could explain being drunk it is like having tranquilizers but never sleeping, awful heavy feeling in my head.
The moment alcohol changes my perception now, I have to stop drinking. I drank on nights out to follow the crowd when I was younger, but it always made me feel ill and I hate the feeling of being out of control. it also magnifies my anxiety 100% the next day.
I only drink water now. Virtually nothing else
would u consider completely giving up ?
me? I like a glass of red with a dinner, but I could probably go with drinking something else during social meetings
I'll drink one or two units then stop. I don't like how it makes me feel (out of control, unable to process quickly enough).
I did binge drink as a student but I never enjoyed it. I never got that feeling of being less inhibited that NTs talk about.
