I Get Emotional When Im Drunk

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 148 People

    Without a doubt, every time I drink alcohol,

    I get so emotional. I can't help it. I'll be fine for most of the night, and then boom. I start to get all soppy. And when I say "soppy" I mean an emotional wreck. I think of all the sad (or happy) things in my life and the tears just flow. It takes so long for me to calm down...

    .

    This was one of the main reasons I have almost given up drinking. What was once used to numb me, soon became something that made all the hidden parts come out. It wasn't nice.Im emotional enough as it is.

    It Depends On the Drink.

    I guess, technically, whatever I drink amplifies my emotions. But different emotions show stronger with different types of drink. I also tend to overdo it with drinking. This could be partially because of my craving for excess. But we'll not argue that right now. Here's how it...

    It's Quite Surprising How You Show Your Other Side..

    Mass Of Tears And Emotions

    Alcohol has never really been my friend, it has never eased my pain or my grief if anything, it has caused me heartache and regret. From the day I was able to understand that my father loved the bottle to the first time he made me take a sip of his beer, it has always been a...

    Way To Sensitive When Drunk

    well I'm a sensitive person anyway when sober but I try to hide it, like pretend things don't bother me when really they do and I put on this tough act. but when i'm drunk, I don't really try to hide it and it becomes obvious how stupidly hurt I can get towards peoples comments...

    Vodka Apparently

    I guess it makes me upset. But there was more to that night than just vodka. Sometime I will elaborate more but don't really have the time at the moment.

    Shizz Spills Out Of My Mouth Like Crazy!

    I'm a super emotional person enough when I'm sober and when I'm drunk, it's hell of a lot worse. I usually spend the first half hour or so giggling and laughing and just being plain retarded and then after that I end up crying and getting all depressed and just spill the beans...

    Just Keep Me Dancing

    Alcohol has an interesting effect on me. As long as I'm up and about it can keep me dancing for hours, I'm like the energiser bunny. The problem is if I sit down or someone starts a conversation with me. It brings me down and I start becoming really emotional. I pour my heart...

    Took me a while to figure out

    why I like drinking so much. I really think it's because I'm able to have feelings and be emotional. I am so numb most of the time. Like a brick wall numb. Unfortunately being emotional can be a positive or a negative thing. As long as I drink when I'm not upset over anything...

    Sometimes It Happens.

    I either get really hyper and just plain retarded when I drink or emotional. I'm super emotional to begin with so when I get drunk, shizz just pours out of my mouth. I end up opening up to people about things that I would never dare say sober.
