You're fucking kidding, right? Added a zero or summit?
Maker's Mark knocked me on my ass every time I popped a shot, and that was a $25 a bottle privilege there.

****, you might be able to find it in some states for $150.00 a bottle but the last time I bought it, it was in Georgia for 200 smackers. You can usually find nips or blue for around $15 a pop."We spoke to them in the only language they understood: the machine gun"

Be it known from this day forth that Hawkeye's 1000th post proclaimed the most wisest of wisdoms that he prefers his hard booze as a solo pastime.

First off, who ever said the first step is recognizing you have a problem was 100% correct.
Second, and more difficult, is what part of your life, or life in general do you find boring/depressing/stressful? Drinking to excess is ALWAYS an escape in my opinion. Figure out what you're trying to escape, eliminate THAT and the drinking will disappear, too.

Yeah as soon as I can eliminate my flat mates, my parents, my female's parents, my student loans, my lack of a job I'll stop drinking.. oh wait a second.. I don't. I'll have an occassionall JWB (Black, if you think I can afford blue you're insane) with my cigars and my usual daily glass of wine which I've had ever since I was around 8. I went nuts my first semester in college. I was drinking 4-5 nights a week, getting blazed out of my mind, etc. After the first semester stopped, I just stopped caring. Getting drunk didn't achieve what I wanted it to. People didn't like me any better, life wasn't any easier, and beautiful, intelligent and careerminded girls weren't banging down my door to be with me. Taking something to ease the pain, just makes the pain that much worse when you come back to reality. My situation as I see it right now sucks, but rather than spend money on pills, pot or drinks, I spend it on investing books, stocks, language resources, etc. We can't let life put us face down in the mud. We have to get up, give life the double leg takedown and GnP it, till it gives us what we want. :angry4:

Maybe schroedinger's sparring, where it's neither grappling nor anti-grappling until somoene observes it and collapses the waveform, and then I RNC a cat to death.----fatherdog

acupuncture detox has been found to be incredibly effective in drug rehab programs. many pilot programs have been done and the results are amazing, when acupuncture is COMBINED with counseling and other modalities. here in balmy seattle we have detox acupuncture shifts at to treat heroine addiction. in addition, i have treated several people on "quit smoking" programs.
acupuncture is more effective when combined with therapy, and it would be unethical to suggest that acupuncture alone can cure a serious drug problem. however, it might help to look up an acupunturist in your area. you can do so at: www.nccaom.org. when contacting an acupuncturist, ask if they have taken the NADA certification class, which teaches acupuncture detox and has a clinic requirement (so you are sure to get someone who has actually treated patients as opposed to just reading about it).
