Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
I think I might have a problem with alcohol. Or rather, I have a problem with the amount of alcohol I ingest.
I don't drink everyday, or really feel the need or urge to drink. I like to drink, and when I do, I usually get drunk. This doesn't seem like a huge deal to me, and when I look at my friends, it mostly seems to mirror what they do.
Now, where the problem lies is that when I DO drink, I never seem to have an off switch. I never get to that point in the evening where I realize that I have had a good amount of drinks, that I am having a good time, and now would be the best time to stop drinking, or at least dial it back. And this is when I can be a dick.
It doesn't happen all the time, or even most of the time, but occasionally, when I get pretty ripped, I am the silliest of geese. I don't like that part of me, and I try not to let it out, but sometimes it does. I hate it when this happens. Nothing usually comes of it because I have the best friends in the world, but I don't want to push that, and I don't want it to be a defining character trait. I also don't really get hung over at all, so that's not even a deterrent.
I'm looking for a method to just get a little squiffy. Not blasted. I don't want to give up drinking entirely, because as I said, most of the time I have a good time, and things don't happen. Any advice for me?
