i have ..and i would do so again..
Get him/her a can of cheap hairspray and a bottle of listerine. They dont deserve any better as the idiots do it to themselves, fück them.
I have learnt somethng from drunks on sidewalks, they don't deserve attention from anyone...
I'm just getting revenge cause I didn't get any when I was there.
Nope. Sorry, I've my own DTs and shakes to put up with..
No, it's me that should be sorry. I was a bit crass in my reply. I have been in that position though. Have been in detox etc...
Cut a long story short, I saw a TV documentary about depression. Anyhow it mentions about the country with the most is South Africa. It said that the inhabitants had a very poor seafood diet. Since then I've upped my fish intake. ( nothing to do with my user name) and my depression seems to have vanished. If you don't like seafood, take codliver oil in capsule form.. Go on, give it a try...
Alcohol detox requires medical intervention, otherwise the detox can be fatal. I couldn't knowingly leave someone on the street to die. I'd call 911.
no question but I'd also call an ambulance
You were in the mint suckers club too? I know I liked you-3 years for me
I am not medically trained or experienced in this. Therefore I would not know what was happening, even if I thought it was DT's I wouldnt take the risk. I would summon medical help - call an ambulance (UK) or other way of getting him to professional help. If that included treatment to stop his dependence on alcohol then OK. So NO I would call an ambulance!
i knew slightly a local street man who was addicted to alcohol he was a lovely man. intellegent etc and had lived half his life with a good job .im not sure why he turned to drink but i gave him £!0 for Chrismas when he was sitting cold in the street. i though after it omg i will have killed him he will drink too much. I found out later his nick name was titanic (the unsinkable) thank god he was ok.
That answer reflects how I can't stand people who say- don't give him $- he'll just spend it on booze- SO WHAT-I love that you A is so non judgy
I'd get him A drink, but no more. Than I'd get him something to eat.
Tough question. Only if a first responder was unavailable and then only after I got him to drink a bottle of water first. Hope that was the right thing to do off the top of my head.
Been there- beer is safest because it slows the shake and hydrates better than the rest
yep ... i have been there ...
Me too baby- I got 3 years
5 months ..
Seriously, you don't know that's all that's wrong with him. It's probably better to get them to medical care even if you'd like to give them a few dollars for a fix.
The Q sets us up to KNOW it's DT's
habitually drunk people often have other health problem too, though, because of the abuse on their bodies. I'm not saying he doesn't have the DT's just that you can tell by looking how sick a person is and what the right thing is to do to help them.
i have seen this and no i would not get drunk a drink. I have called the cops on many a drunk,Let them and the fire department deal with them
nah medical help more drink would make Him worse
yes maybe Your right i use to buy this guy (who was Homelss) food but never give money
I get sandwiches and a few bucks - always a pack of smokes- I'm an enabler I guess-He didn't choose this- I think a bit of comfort is the best you can do until the want real help
no sir i do not want to be an enabler
you'd only be an enablerette
oiy is that bad?
