I don't understand beer tbh. It is an above average drink in terms of taste, but afterwards it just makes you feel slightly retarded and then slightly shit. You get like an hour or two of wobbly movement and bursts of random laughter, but after that its just an entire day of feeling like your cheeks are burning up + a shit taste in your mouth. I guess I never got smashed, but I don't really find the idea of forgetting what I did the day after that appealing.

The real secret of beer is drinking one or two an hour while sitting around having the craic with a group of people or listening to music etc. not drinking to get fucked up, drinking to get drunk is always a bad idea but doing it with beer is especially bad because of all the calories and the gas in it making you feel incredibly terrible due to bloating and irritation along with the regular hangover

Also have a pint or so of water before going to bed and you won't get the horrible mouth feeling the next day, its a symptom of being dehydrated + having bits of stale beer stuck between your teeth

Me neither, anti-alcohol gang. I never got hammered but never understood the appeal. I don’t like the taste of alcohol at all. Like even the lightest sweetest wine tastes like shit to me. I went to a winery and they had grape juice made from the same vineyards, just without the alcohol and I liked that shit wayy better. I also love that nonalcoholic apple cider. Adding alcohol just makes a great drink worse.

People said you have to ‘get used to it,’ but why the fuck would I waste my time killing my tastebuds for some nasty ass drink?

I love beer. It tastes good and because the alcohol content is not that high you won't get the hangovers you would if you drank booze, and since it doesn't have as much sugar you won't get that gross feeling in your teeth if you are too drunk to brush your teeth. Plus it's the cheapest alcoholic drink in bars and pubs.
If you are alone drinking one is fine, but getting smashed by yourself is just depressing and creates a really bad habit.
If you want to avoid hangovers do as >>9179 said, drink plenty of water.
>>9181
You just need to find a drink you enjoy (if you want to). I hate gin and vodka, plus I dislike wine, but I love beer, anisette and orujo de hierbas. Plenty of people who don't like alcohol enjoy bayleis, try that if you want.

 No.9191

>>9181
Alcohol is more of a social lubricant than something to be consumed for its own sake, I'll drink at home very lightly when not with others but I only appreciate the taste because I'm used to using it to ease social interactions, to be very scientific and cold about it, it helps overcome social awkwardness and relax, I think its telling that the best nights out are ones where the drinking is relatively slow but the chat is fast

I've sometimes wondered how people from dry countries perceive western drinking cultures, I've been drinking and going into pubs since I was 15 and its so culturally baked in I can't really imagine life without that component, though it seems there are very few naturally dry places, even devout muslim countries have thriving underground drinking scenes so its seems to be a pretty universal thing

Also all alcohol doesn't taste and hit the same, I like beers and vodka, especially when ice cold as well as very occasionally whiskey but can't stand wine or schnapps for example and things like Tequila or liqours make me feel physically ill regardless of how little I have of them

I went dry for about 9 months and found it valuable but at the same time I did miss the social utility (and taste) of a good beer sat in the sun after hard excercise or a drink in the evening with friends

 No.9192

>>9191
The lubricant thing is the main advantage, as long as you're careful its a great way to connect with a variety of people that you would normally struggle to deal with. Sure if you're gregarious enough you might be able to do it without but alcohol is a shortcut and a way for the less socially inclined to build a rapport.

People became alcoholics at home because it takes the edge off stress and makes pretty much everything more enjoyable.

I always drink to get drunk, but I have hangover prevention broken down to a science. I only drink plain good quality vodka, take electrolyte pills along with activated charcoal and 250ml/16oz of water for every two drinks I consume. I also finish the night with food (maybe) and/or something like Pedialyte. I never get seriously hungover anymore, at worst I might wake up with a headache. But that is cured immediately with some aspirin, coffee, and breakfast.

At the bar? Whiskey and cola. Or water and ice. I get retarded very fast on alcohol so back when I would go clubbing I would drink until my teenage insecurity melted away and would drink a bit again when I start to feel too self conscious. The only times I have found alcohol to be worth it is when drinking with friends and so have a normie tier drug to use or doing dumb shit and making fun memories with random backpackers/interesting girls. I much prefer pregabalin as far as gabaergic depressants go. Stimulants were always my go to however. Now I'm sober most days and I prefer it

When I'm at a bar I generally will spend more time smoking, usually cigarillos than I do drinking, anyone else here smoke at bars?

 No.20121

>>20120
opposite. i smoke cigarillos, but only at home. frankly embarrassed to smoke cigarillos or smoke at all in public, it's not a great habit and i feel like i reek when i do it. i also drink only at home. i don't think it's safe to be drunk outside and if i ever get drunk with the intention of being drunk outside, i go to the beach or park. don't really understand the bar meme period, you get to massively overpay and be drunk and vulnerable around loud strangers? unrewarding. been to all sorts of bars, high class ones and shitholes, it's all the same, it's all uncomfortable, even when you're trashed.

 No.20122

Beer is consistently cheap, so if I'm drinking at a bar and not at some get-together in a friends house, I go for that. Sadly beer tastes like shit and you can only learn to tolerate it and not like it.

Wine on its own is too bougie for me, I mainly drink to get drunk. Flavour's only purpose in an alcoholic drink is to get you drunk faster. Spritzers on the other hand are amazing. They are light, refreshing and go down easily. The perfect starting drink. It also makes cheap wine a lot more enjoyable. There is a saying here for things that are still tolerable: "it's fine with sparkling water".

Whiskey cola, vodka and orange, vodka on its own and Unicum or other similar herbal liqueurs are all amazing drinks, but pálinka tops all of them in my opinion. It's strong but comes with a very nice flavour. Sadly despite all the tax cuts it's still very expensive in the store, but sometimes there is that one guy who brings some homemade pálinka from this or that relative.

I'm also starting to like gin tonic. I don't think I like the flavour that much, but it feels very non-alcoholic if that makes sense.

Makgeolli is my favorite alcoholic drink: it tastes kinda milky and is slightly sparkly.
It can be very deceiving since it almost tastes like a sweet non-alcoholic drink without being too sugary, and it can give you a terrible hangover, but it's so comfy. My friends either love it or hate it. I've heard it's pretty easy to make if you have glutinous rice and the right kind of yeast at hand.

My favorite liquor is Scottish peated whisky, like Laphroaig and Caol Ila. I don't really like whisky otherwise, but for some reason I love peat which is kinda reminiscent of charcoal and cough medicine. It's also the kind of liquor that I take time to appreciate and not chug 3/4 of the bottle in a night and end up completely wasted, unlike vodka.

Honorable mentions:
- Oude jenever: It's similar to gin, but you drink it straight because it's tamer. Too bad it's only available in the Netherlands and Belgium
- Cider: Very sugary but really comfy
- Chablis white wine: Expensive but worth it if you can find a good bottle, fruity while being pretty dry
- Picon with beer: It brings a perfect amount of bitterness and orange taste to a mediocre beer. This is what I typically get at a bar when I don't feel like spending too much money on some Belgian beers
- Italian spritz: Similar to Picon but for sparkling white wine, awesome to drink fresh when you are doing tourism in Italy
- Gentiane: A bitter from Auvergne, France, which has a pretty unique floral taste, goes great with tonic water
- Sake and Cheongju (served cold): Japanese sake is way too overpriced for what it is, but I still like the neutral taste. Cheongju is the exact same thing for half the price.

I could go on and on about ouzo, kir, sangria, caipirinha, IPAs, becherovka, absinthe… Alcoholism is destroying my life but holy shit there is nothing in the world like enjoying a good regional drink with some friends or hospitable strangers.

>I have wandered extensively in several great European cities, and I appreciated everything that deserved it. The catalogue on this subject could be vast. There were the beers of England, where mild and bitter were mixed in pints; the big schooners of Munich; and the Irish; and the most classical, the Czech beer of Pilsen; and the admirable baroquism of the Gueuze around Brussels, when it had its distinct flavour in each artisanal brasserie and did not travel well. There were the fruit liqueurs of Alsace; the rum of Jamaica; the punches, the aquavit of Aalborg, and the grappa of Turin, cognac, cocktails; the incomparable mezcal of Mexico. There were all the wines of France, the loveliest coming from Burgundy; there were the wines of Italy, and especially the Barolos of Langhe, the Chiantis of Tuscany; there were the wines of Spain, the Riojas of Old Castille or the Jumilla of Murcia.

>I would have had very few illnesses if alcohol had not in the end brought me some; from insomnia to vertigo, by way of gout. “Beautiful as the trembling of the hands in alcoholism,” said Lautréamont. There are mornings that are stirring but difficult.
>“It is better to hide one’s folly, but that is difficult in debauchery or drunkenness,” thought Heraclitus. And yet Machiavelli wrote to Francesco Vettori: “Anybody reading our letters . . . would think that sometimes we are serious people entirely devoted to great things, that our hearts cannot conceive any thought that is not honourable and grand. But then, as they turned the page, we would seem light, inconstant, lustful, entirely devoted to vanities. And even if someone judges this way of life shameful, I find it praiseworthy, for we imitate nature, which is changeable.” Vauvenargues formulated a rule too often forgotten: “In order to decide that an author contradicts himself, it must be impossible to conciliate him.”
>Moreover, some of my reasons for drinking are respectable. Like Li Po, I can indeed nobly claim: “For thirty years, I’ve hidden my fame in taverns.”
>The majority of wines, almost all spirits, and every one of the beers whose memory I have evoked here have today completely lost their tastes — first on the world market and then locally — with the progress of industry as well as the disappearance or economic re-education of the social classes that had long remained independent of large industrial production, and so too of the various regulations that now prohibit virtually anything that is not industrially produced. The bottles, so that they can still be sold, have faithfully retained their labels; this attention to detail provides the assurance that one can photograph them as they used to be, not drink them.
>Neither I nor the people who drank with me have at any moment felt embarrassed by our excesses. “At the banquet of life” — good guests there, at least — we took a seat without thinking even for an instant that what we were drinking with such prodigality would not subsequently be replenished for those who would come after us. In drinking memory, no one had ever imagined that he would see drink pass away before the drinker.

I should have swapped sake/cheongju for vinho verde, a Portuguese wine which is light, fruity and slightly sparkly, it's better than champagne and most sparkling wines while being cheaper, and way more interesting to the palate than neutral tasting rice wine. I love them all tho.

the whole point of being at a bar is to be drunk and uninhibited and socialize with other people that are also uninhibited and get over your awkwardness. That's why people associate bars with getting laid because people have less inhibitions.
