StupidWasteOfMoney explains the cost/benefit analysis of alcohol - 0 views

  •  
    In my case, I finally realized it made no difference whether or not I was an "alcoholic" by any definition. Being an "alcoholic" is all about the negative impact that alcohol has on my life. But once I realized that alcohol's positive impact on my life was absolutely zero, there was no point parsing out fine distinctions about how to define my drinking habit. You're balancing a scale - harms to benefits. When the benefits have zero weight, the harm end of the scale just clanks to the ground no matter how little weight you put on it.

Who has noticed a dramatic shift in their relationships with others? - 0 views

    After stopping drinking, I have seen a lot of social anxiety surface, and then disappear after confronting it, but even more interesting is the interactions I'm having with people are so much more positive.
    Looking back on these two months, I have really realized that I had been feeding my social anxiety with alcohol, and had been really leading some very shallow relationships. Stopping drinking has removed that mask, and has allowed me to delve much deeper into my own personal relationships.
