    Its because you had developed what doctors call Permitus Whiskey Dickus.

My sweat smelled like a mix of Nickeback and urine (basically the sweat smell equivalent of Garth Algar's "Pralines and Dick" ice cream flavor). I've been downing water and green tea like it's going out of style and I think that the increased hydration has had a very weird effect on me.

I do really like sober sex and sober masturbation, though I miss being entertained by TV. I hadn't really thought about either in years (with few exceptions). However, I get agitated more easily and I can;t stop sweating. OK for now... I think my liver or pancreas was swollen a little. Either that or i magically lost 4 pounds in the last day and a half (and weight loss wasn't even a goal-though 10 pounds would be nice). I'm no fun when I'm sober.

    you owe it to youself to go longer than six days and decide then.
    and the 'I'm no fun when I'm sober" thing generally tends to be BS.

    also, since you don't know me, I'm really not trying to tell you what to do.
    But, to give it a fair chance, you gotta go longer than six days.

    No, I was able to perform fine (as evidenced by the daughter I conceived while not at all sober). Actually, I didn't perform better or worse (or shorter or longer) when I wasn't sober (except for some of those really fueled nights where the harder stuff was flowing in extreme amounts, in addition to the alcohol. I just got, uh, ready, when I should have and wasn't a walking hard-on for 24 hours. Whatever, it's probably just the amount of water I've been drinking and the green tea. Also in the TMI realm, I've been visiting the restroom enough that I've pretty much torn through the new issue of Paste magazine that arrived in the mail TODAY. Again, this is new to me, and although it probably seemed like some sort of facade to some of you, it's the honest to God truth. I've quit drinking before, sworn off the harder stuff (anything that could kill me with one dose) since we had our daughter, but never tried to detox and allow my liver to heal for a few days without popping handfuls of Valium, Xanax, Nitrazepam, Klonopin, Lorazepam any other benzo-drug I had lying around (and I do mean handfuls---I'd get a bottle of 120 4-bars and just pop open the bottle and open my mouth)... If I was lucky I had painkillers to get me by....6-days is the target (who knows what happens on Friday?), but if i can make it past friday, then I'm good to go until the following Saturday. I'm just trying to gauge the benefits at this point, and I'm feeling guilty for smoking the good herb during my detox (as it tends to make it less of an accomplishment), but it takes the edge off. I'm about to go smoke another joint, in fact, then watch "This is Spinal Tap" or simpsons season 10, whichever sounds better at the time...

    More green tea suggestions are welcome and FOI, please elaborate on that method. Is sugar considered a bad toxin? I've been drinking that XXX Glaceau (sp?) Vitamin Water flavor but noticed it has a ton of sugar. I also had a pack of Spree earlier... Anyway, do you have a link to that method. Also, anyone know liver supplements that help the liver cleanse WITHOUT any side effects?

    I'd vote for these things.

    Another option for getting such teas is ordering them online from somewhere like SpecialTeas. That's where we get my mother her green teas and a wide variety of others. I think last order I participated in we ended up getting a sample of a stick tea and another one that was monkey-picked.

    Jeez. What kind of job do you have where you are afforded the luxury of doing all the drugs to your hearts content? I cant even toke if I wanted.

    If I remember correctly there is a specialty tea shop in Austin called The Tea Embassy or somethin' like that, it's near downtown off Lamar. You can buy loose leaf teas in bulk, as much or as little as you want.

    You faggots realize you're discussing tea shops, right?

    Just wanted to make sure we're all intimately aware of this.

    Whiskey Sour

    2 oz blended whiskey
    Juice of 1/2 lemon
    1/2 tsp powdered sugar
    1 cherry
    1/2 slice lemon

    Shake blended whiskey, juice of lemon, and powdered sugar with ice and strain into a whiskey sour glass. Decorate with the half-slice of lemon, top with the cherry, and serve.

    Sorry to hear that about your job.
    I think I've mentioned what I do for a living (on the old board) but I'm not going to divulge here. My employer would probably be cool with smoking bud, and I have general anxiety disorder which explains the benzos. And opiates leave your blood stream quickly (as does blow) that one could still do both (if wanted) and, as long as they have a general idea when they're going to be piss-tested, they could hold a job fine.

    OK, a new day and the score is nothingman 2- slovenly drunkenness 0...

    Problem, my wife's best friend is coming in town and wants to have drinks with us... We're going to go shopping at the record store (Waterloo) together on our once a month "rape the vinyl section" and hope we get lucky---like finding an original "Propeller" that somehow made it onto the rack---then dinner and drinks. It looks like the final score will be Nothingman 2.5 days- Slovenly drunkenness 0 with a .5 day score going to violated alcohol-free policy but didn;t get drunk and pop a bunch of pills...

    Either that or I order water when everyone else is having drinks. Probably not bloody likely.

    Ahh, the wonders of benzo withdrawl. Who would've ever thought there could be something worse than kicking heroin?

    Nothingman, babes, if you're going to do it don't be a big *** about it. Drink club soda or some other shit and stick to the regimen. Smoke weed if you need to, I suppose, but pills and booze are your primary targets. Booze possibly more so than pills it will do your body good to get away from for a week.

    They aren't all prescribed. You can get far better, way more potent benzo's from Eastern Bloc countries and a few places in South America. Trust me on this. All you have to do is have the contact info and a little bit of trust. Cheap, non-prescribed, more potent Benzo's. It's a treat.

    Randy, you slimy little fucker you... I've been taking Addies, a few nitrazepam to fall asleep. And beaytch, your shipment that you are so eagerly awaiting could be found (except for the G) in my medicine cabinet... Been smokin' the fine herb (strangely enough, I hate tobacco) and have been doing well with the tea and water shit. Also had steaks every night for the past 3 and 4 of the past 5. No breakfast, no sugar except for the sugar in gum, which I've been rockin a lot recently...

    P.S. I'll mail you next-day at a slight markup (500%) of what your old dude was charging. Let me know if that sounds like something you might be interested in. Love ya' bro. Hate to rub it in.

    As we end the day of August 16th, 2007, I officially haven't had a drink in 5 days. Nothingman 5- Slovenly Drunkenness 0. Completely dominating it. Now, one of my friends got busted by his wife for sending sexually explicit emails to coworkers that he may or may not have ever hooked up with, so she left him (and left her ring on the table). They have a 3 year old daughter, so I imagine that I will help him out by taking him out tomorrow. I seriously doubt that the bar we go to will serve Green Tea, so let's consider it Nothingman 5.5- Slovenly drunkenness 0 as a probable final score. Then I'll go back to my usual ways... My liver thanks me for the break. My sweat doesn;t stink anymore. Life is swell. So why would I get back on the intoxicant train, you ask? Because I like altering reality a little bit, every so often. Simply put, I like being fucked up occasionally.

    No, the G I can get ahold of without problem pretty regularly. You have overseas pharmacies, I have Hollywood Faggots. Good people and everything, service is generally reliable and prompt since they never leave the one bedroom where all the tweak gets smoked, and you're guaranteed a slightly creepy compliment with every visit.

    500%, eh? I've seen what some of those pharmacies charge--500 percent might be fine by me. PM with something convincing. Or in the long run you could be friendly by just hooking me up with your connect, but the words "overnight" and "more potent" have a special place in my heart at the moment. More potent, for realsies? Oh, were these the 4 mg bars you were referring to? I'd heard people mention them in the past and always just said, "Um, you got beat, kid--they don't make them stronger than two milligrams." Could it be true? A four milligram Alprazolam bar? ... The drug fiend's mind reels with implications.

    I'm pretty well-stocked on Adderall for another month or so I think. I'm glad that we're in agreement that dextro-amphetamine salts during the day and benzos at night is the way to go--such an easier way to live just telling when your body to be alert and productive and when it's time to chill the fuck out and stop vibrating. In my case (can't speak for you) the vibrating isn't even from the amphetamine, it's just from night time. Strange too, 'cause I fucking hate the day--there's asshole daytime people everywhere with their asshole daytime faces and concerns and questions, and not nearly enough people are as fucked up as I am in the morning.

    P.S. Tell me that you have an overseas pharmacy for opiates and I'll blow you front and back at Coachella, in the Sahara if necessary. I doubt it'll be the first dude sucking some other dude off for drugs in that tent, heh. I wasn't kidding about paying the markup--you wanna pay for your next shipment with one little trip to UPS for me, I'm game.

    P.P.S. And I'm genuinely glad to hear that you took a little break from the drinking. Strangely I still put alcohol on the second rung of dangerous habits, although we're both professionals at this of course. But since alcohol is primarily what you were getting a break from (granted you slowed down on some other things, but that was the primary goal and the only one you truly abstained from completely, right) and your diet sounds somewhat similar to mine... how much do you really feel the alcohol is eating you up? I wonder, in the long run, if the litre of rum or twelve pack a night is fucking me up just as badly as all the drugs put together. Or at least if I stopped drinking while doing all the drugs I might buy myself ten years in the process.

    I have the genetics of one of the world's best alcoholics and it looked unpleasant towards the end for him. Of course I'll still be surprised if I haven't died in a car crash or drowned on my own vomit--if not some other liquid--in ten years' time, but still. The man was strong, he had a presence larger than himself kinda like the Indian describes McMurphy in One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest. But at the end... he was like R. P. McMurphy, at the end. And he didn't do anything particularly bad for him but drink. Lord knows the pain our livers must suffer. Take that, livers! Man up, you swollen fuckers, and harch, doubletime!

    In closing, congratulations for only doing three drugs for 5.5 days. =)
