    My Friend Budweiser

    I was looking for people like me who like to drink alone, so I googled it and found this group but it feels like a oxymoron.  I need the drunk feeling but I long to share this feeling with someone else like me.   So far it's just me.  I commute about an hour...

    On A Balcony High In The Sky

    Alone on the patio, the air hangs heavy. It's not hot enough to suffocate me, just warm. Even still there is a chill to the night that comes and goes. Eyes closed as I tilt my head back and taste the cold beer splash in to my mouth. I reach for my phone and turn the music on low...

    It has been a long time

    since I have had a drink. I just want to get a good buzz and calm down all the thoughts in my head just for tonight.

    My Parents Drank Together . . . Just As Bad.

    I hate this habit. It is so hard to get rid of. Both my parents were alcoholics and they both died prematurely as a direct result (my Mom at 57, from cirrhosis, and my Dad at 70, after losing nearly all mobility at 63 from a stroke). I binged as a teen and in my 20s, then in my 3...

    True, true I love to have a few drinks alone

    sometimes, usually when I'm very stressed or bored or sometimes when I just need to chill after a long hard day and there is absolutely nothing wrong with that. :)

    ...

    I drink alone all the time; I really don't care. I'll wake up first thing in the morning and have a drink (if it's in the house). Probably because I'm and alcoholic. It kinda stinks to drink alone because I usually end up depressed. O well

    More Often Than With Someone Else

    Often one of the best questions to ask is, "Why?" The simple answer is that no one is drinking with me. Many potential reasons for that one... maybe it is because I can relax more without the pressure of conversation. But why am I drinking? Maybe to simply slow down...

    Sometimes

    There are times when I want a drink really badly, but because of my dad being an alcoholic, and my past experiences with drinking way more than my friends, it's better when I just drink alone. Usually when I drink alone I actually limit myself more than when I'm with other...
