    Lamest Thread EVER!

    by ShoreSlayer » Fri Dec 16, 2011 2:31 am

    Gonna try not to babble on too much on this one but here goes...

    If all continues to go as well as it has been, 16ish months sober come cruise time. Been craving rather frequently lately which (only partially) contributed to almost not even coming on the cruise. In another conversation tonight I referred to other non-drinking cruisers as Islands of Sanity in a Sea of Madness. There were times last year where being surrounded by incredibly enthusiastic drinkers on all sides (even those as awesome as y'all) was a bit crazy-making for me and then I'd run into my cabinmate or some other non-drinking forumite and just a short connection with a sober person would totally anchor me back to the ship (and pull me out of my messed up brain). Don't get me wrong. I have a blast hanging with loaded metalheads for the most part but after hours and hours of it, I just find myself needing a brief respite some times.

    So yeah, just wanted to invite others who won't be drinking on round 2 to either post here or PM me so I can build a bit of a mental list for when it might help. Much appreciated! :beerbang: :cheers:

    And before the smartass bastards among the rest of you get on my case about this, go hang out here, here, here or here instead mmkay? :lol:
    So far at least, 2011, 2012 & 2015 were enough for me

    Good for you Rob! It's a respectable decision that you've made. I'm pretty sure Kevin and DrinkMoxie are also sober sallies, if I'm remembering correctly.

    By sheer coincidence, I had my one year sober the last day of the cruise. My second year without drinking will again be on the booze cruise and I'm highly, HIGHLY amused at this! Where better to celebrate? :lol: :heavydrink:

    *For myself, I refer to sober strictly as not drinking.

    :heavydrink: Though admittedly the wife's constant purchasing of beer over the past year has gotten my palate a little more "used to it". Granted, I still only go top shelf and not enough to even get buzzed. But abstaining doesn't require any work/thought for me. And just for the sake of not pissing $$$$ away I was thinking of not even buying any drinks. Rather sink it into merch :mrgreen:

    So in conclusion, Bill, Red and I are sober and like :deathmetal: WE RULE. (Rob is still a work in progress :lol: )

    Most do no know, but I have been a heavy drinker for a long while. I had a high blood pressure scare in August and am on two different kinds of meds and so I cannot drink much anymore, I have not gotten drunk in over 4 months. :)

    Which means more merch this time!!!!!!!

    I am also sorry to those I was "brash" against online. The reason was because my blood pressure was 185/115 for lord knows how long

    Cheers,

    Scott

    Definitely not lame. Stay the course, kudos to you and those that will maintain sobriety. I'm not one that gets hammered for the sake of it. While I'll still be drinking, I'd still like to remember this vacation. LOL

    QFT

    Being a Finn, I'm no stranger to heavy drinking, but am rarely so drunk I would lose my memory.
    I don't suffer from hangovers (not even after some seriously heavy drinking), so a fear of those doesn't affect me either.

    I think for me drinking is more of a social thing and I've never drank when, say, alone at home like many do.

    I'd like to say congrats, that's a hell of a thing to do, and I can only imagine the courage it takes to come into an environment like that, so kudos to you, man.

    My wife and I will drink, but not much. I seriously doubt I'll have more than 5 drinks the entire week, and odds are most of what we do have will be girly tropical stuff. But I can't really afford to drink, she doesn't like the taste of it, and we both have some family history that nobody here wants to hear about. Needless to say, we are, for most intents and purposes, sober.

    Plus as others have said, limited budget + merch. Gotta have priorities.

    So if you want to get away and relax, and you see Miscellaneous Metalhead #1832 standing beside a girl in a wheelchair, come have a chat :)

    I didn't drink at all last year, I was hoping to have a few this year, but since my contract ends next week, most likely I won't be drinking to keep costs down. Plus would I rather have a couple drinks that will last me 15-20 minutes or a Tankard/Cruise/Grave Digger/Exciter/Virgin Steele/Therion/Coroner/Deadly Bizarre/Thrash or Die T-shirt/CD that would last me years??

    Booze in my opinion is one of the biggest wastes of cash ever conceived by humans. Clearly a luxury not a necessity.

    Sorry to hear it and hope you're feeling better. My Dad's been in and out of hospital lately with huge spikes and drops in his blood pressure. Serious shit man. I hope you stay on the course of taking care of it

    Congratulations on your sobriety. :viking:

    I’m just an old fuddy duddy. I’m just a light social drinker. Three alcoholic drinks and I’m done. Good for the night and call it quits. I don’t like the next day headaches, or being sick. :cry:

    I don’t think that I could have dealt with my cabin mate (Kevin P.) and vise versa, very well if I was a drunkard. LOL
    Anyways this trip is far too costly and enjoyable to be a wasted drunk the whole time.

    I had met a few cruisers that had missed most of the first night due to heavy drinking too early and the entire third night because they got so wasted while in Cozumel. I even had to help one cruiser get back onboard. Felt sorry for his friend.
    Just not worth it to me.

    I’ll lend support as long you can refrain from the Dry Drunk syndrome. :bitch:
    The only thing that will piss me off more than a wet obnoxious drunk is a Dry “Holier than Thou”, Drunk. :bitch:
    No insult intended, just my opinion. Tolerance. Peace. :cool:

    Yep, agreed. I'm a proud 5 year smoke-free quitter and even I can't stand those nazi-quitters. Same goes for alkamohol. I quit drinking in support of my boyfriend. I don't care what anyone else does. :beerwink:

    For me getting drunk and watching metal goes hand in hand.
    I just find shows more enjoyable that way.

    Thanks to all for the friendly and supportive responses (not that I expected anything less from this crew to be honest).

    Yeah Michael, some people give up drinking and everyone around them wishes they'd just start again cuz they're twice as miserable as they were before lol. I've often spoken with others about them quitting various things like smoking, drinking and more but, for the most part, only when they've brought it up themselves and asked for suggestions or support. The only times where I've crossed into uninvited advice giving in this area has been when the person is obviously having huge problems related to their use and just can't seem to see that some change in that area might be helpful. And even then, very much in the context of offering something to consider and never preaching or cramming down one's throat. Then, of course, at work we do a lot of A&D education and make suggestions around these life areas but I see that as completely different as it's my profession, not my personal life.
    So far at least, 2011, 2012 & 2015 were enough for me

    No insult intended, just my opinion. Tolerance. Peace. :cool:

    Yep, agreed. I'm a proud 5 year smoke-free quitter and even I can't stand those nazi-quitters. Same goes for alkamohol. I quit drinking in support of my boyfriend. I don't care what anyone else does. :beerwink:


    I am really proud of everyone that chooses to quit smoking. I think quitting smoking is one of the hardest additions to kick. I have never smoked (life-long non-smoker) but had had family members/friends that smoked like chimneys (1, 2, 3, pack-a-day habit) and were able to quit. Great accomplishments. Here’s to your health. :viking: :D :D :D

    Most of the time for me, it's just a waste of cash, for the average cruise booze bill I could fly to another state and see a kick ass metal show and see a new city, or buy a crap ton of metal albums and merch and support bands instead of breweries.

    I certainly wont be drinking as much as I did last cruise.
    I think over the 4 days, it was about a 4 or 5 hundred dollar tab for just booze alone.
    Loads of money for just drinking, so I'll probably keep it to a minimum and maybe get a pop package and drink some pop and water.

    That's the plan at least... but you never know.

    I'm not a huge drinker. Got that out of my system young :lol:. I usually get bored drinking before I get drunk. I will probably get a buzz on a day or two, but for the most part should be sober. So if you need an escape Rob, chances are I can help :D.

    I will drink a good few biers but will avoid getting stone drunk.
    And I have great respect to those choosing not to drink,
    especally in an environment like a cruise ship.
    I know how that is, I actually stayed sober on a
    cruise ship for 3.5 months.

    So I will give my half drunk support to anyone in need
    of it, regardless if they are drunk or sober.

    Stopped smoking 20 years ago, never been a heavy drinker - don't like hangovers and am always a funny guy without alcohol or drugs.
