my thoughts on alcohol, a woman and a question

ok, let me commence this by stating a) since the lounge is an omni-forum and a place for personal advice (it would seem), i feel it relevant to post b) i am not judging ANYONE here, i am merely stating an opinion

i'm 24, my girlfriend is 26. we're both fairly mature and enjoy a pretty hassle-free relationship. frankly, i would not be surprised if i were to marry her some time down the road. nothing really the matter other than the fact that our thoughts clash on drinking. i seem to be odd in that, while i enjoy my beer and spirits quite a bit, rarely if ever do i get drunk. i don't like the fubar'd drunk buzz, it doesn't suit me. which sucks because i really enjoy the taste but honestly i can't consume 10 or 12 beer like i used to. i feel i am past that point in my life, although i continue to drink but a pint or a 6 pack usually suits me these days. i sound old, whatever. she, on the other hand, is about 4'11" and tiny. she can drink 20 beer, probably more. i'm not denying the talent and, shit, i have no clue where she puts it. it takes quite a bit to get her loaded and she doesn't drink socially. she drinks to get drunk, usually stress relief. maybe twice a month, which isn't that bad.

i guess the problem is that half the reason i don't get hammered is because i know what i look like and know the consequences of that much booze. it ain't for me. nobody can deny they become an exaggerated version of themselves when drunk, but christ it can be annoying when she does it. she remembers nothing of what i say to her and she'll be very openly affectionate with me which is fine but sometimes i don't like making out in hoards of people, y'know? i can drink 6 beer and smoke however many joints you put in my face, i still remember the whole night. talking to her is a lost cause which can be frustrating. she pays for it the next day, but she knows what to expect and is fine with it.

so i'm a hypocrite because it would seem to be a question of degree here. i drink but she drinks more. i could care less if she gets drunk, but should i be concerned about alcohol poisoning here? she could put back 20 beer mixed with shots, but she is used to it.. just seems like a lot to me.. should i care? she gets a little pissed when i don't wanna be around her when she's drunk. it isn't as if she chronically drinks even, i just don't care to be around her when she's that wasted. kinda makes me lose respect for her, i'd much rather just hear about her night later and have some drunk love or have her go back to her own place. i feel like a selfish prick if i don't go out to the clubs with her though, but i was never one for that scene.

can anyone relate to this situation? advice? thoughts? criticism? hit me

furthermore, what are your own thoughts on drinking? anyone not drink at all?

I need to meet this lady, seems like she'd be a fun person to go to the bar with!

She sounds like me, I drink until someone stops me, I pass out, or the bar cuts me off. So far the last 2 have happened.

Why fret about it? Shes the clubber and ur the social.

Re: my thoughts on alcohol, a woman and a question

i hear ya bro. i'm 26 and if i drink more than A beer, i don't like the feeling. i love the taste of a good ber (read: sam adams or occasionally killian's) but that's as far as i take it. my wife (who's almost 32 )on the other hand gets tanked when we go to "parties". we don't do the club scene and i hate when she drinks so much cuz it's a pain in the ass to deal with her. she'll start fights for no reason and pass out on the way home. vomiting is always a possibility, which she had to pay $100 once to get my car detailed. not pretty. but anyway, yeah. i'm with ya on this one

Honestly bro, I think unless she is working on cutting back ... you better just drop her. From the picture you painted she sounds like an addict, and you don't want that in your life dude. Trust me on that one. I dated a girl in college that liked the sauce a little too much. I saw the problem early on and it caused several fights. Because of those fights we broke up ... a year and a half later she gets drunk with a friend of mine and 9 mos. later she's a full fledged mommy ..... with a drinking problem. Take my example as just that, an example. It doesn't happen that way with everyone.

Your girl is who she is, if you think that her drinking is problematic and that you can't deal with it ... then PIITB one last time and kick her to the curb.

My ex was the same way. It really affected us, and it wasn't fun to go out at night anymore with him because of his drunk persona, so I became a homebody (with him) and just wanted to see him less and less b/c of the way he acted under the influence, but that's not to say that he wasn't a complete tool before the booze. Talk to her about her health and drinking less, if she listens and tries to cut back, that's awesome ... if not, that will probably cause large problems for you two down the road.
