Need advise on drinking and having fun at the same time

Reddit View
April 6, 2018

I tend to be reserved and try to hold a quiet strong personality in work place and in general. However this goes against my core "hyper active energy", but I manage. I drink to let loose and enjoy. However, it looks like I get a little hyper active when I drink. Dance crazy. To be honest I really enjoy letting loose. But I have come to understand my impression and what I portray might be off when this happens. Is there a way to still enjoy while drinking and not let it hamper your reputation? Any specific rule of thumbs. Or will I need to just get rid lf alcohol as a way to let loose. Any ideas, criticism or guides welcome.

The bigger issue is that you feel uncomfortable expressing yourself and your intentions.

I dont have any uncomfortably to express myself or intentions. However, when I drink I am very energised. Pretty hyper active.

You are inhibited. When you drink and your inhibitions drop, you pop like a balloon. Why? Because you are inhibited and do not actually express yourself until you down some liquid courage.

I see. Even if I'm inhibited by choice? Both you are probably right. I will not dance sober.

Any thoughts on practical steps I can take to do something about this?

Get out of your comfort zone and actually do what Robert Glover suggests in NMMNG.

I think there is a misunderstanding here. I have to issues socialising. I I have social circles and I do what I want whether I drink or not. For me it's just that drinking hypes me up and I chill much more. But my personality is more exuberent at these times. Am wondering if this is affecting my personal profile negatively. Which it might be. If so am I overthinking this or not.

[–]SeamusAwl0 points1 point  (1 child) | Copy

nope. I never said you had issues socializing. I said you are inhibited and for whatever reason you are repressing yourself.

[–]SoulRedemption[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

I think I will go back to Glover's book on this. I am probably working at it from a wrong angle. Thanks.

[–]SeamusAwl0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Yup. Why does the OP feel it necessary to be a chameleon.

Drink less over a longer period. I have this problem with weed, which is weird. The second I get high I am insanely animated. I’m funny and entertaining and stuff but some of the more boring “I smoke weed to sink deep into the earth” types can’t stand my energy.

This is where am trying to decide the approach. I drink to let loose. When I drink less over a longer period, I do not get the sweet buzz that I should be in, and feel like I'm not really drinking, per say. I'm trying to figure if I have an alcoholic problem or there are others like me who have similar situations and possible solutions. That being said, I will give it a shot to drink less over a longer period.

I don't know how old you guys are but from my experience... I used to drink every weekend and I noticed that my tolerance to alcohol rose up, I can not be inhibited any longer by the effects of it.

Drinking, in long term, isn't going to help having fun / get girls.

What works is having a nice social circle. You might drink less , but if you have the right friends and the people you want beside you... your confidence will rise. That works.

[–]SoulRedemption[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

This is the thing. I got social circles and I am fine. It's not that. It's just when I drink I relax much much more. I suppose learning the IDGAF won't be a problem.

I suggest you do not drink. It is really just making you weaker, fatter, and older.

Hopefully you can let loose sober, just do that.

[–]SoulRedemption[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

I agree with you.

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

I'm like you. But when I drink (alot). I'm still somewhat reserved. I still care about where I touch a girl on a night out. I'm going to naturally (sober) express myself to get more comfortable.

You can kill a man, but you can't kill an idea.
