........Thanks for the advice, Ir on the effects of 100 proof, or any booze, it's only medicinally advantegous in times of the incomprehensibly, and unavoidably the only, and the last solution. Beer, then only chases the dreams left.
A bard once sang thus: 'Loose Your dreams and you will loose your mind'.

At that point, not compensating, is worse then that, it is death; of the soul. The late Allen Ginsburg once said, 'if You drink, drink at home, alone.

I mostly drink alone in my home. It's a good way to cope with ILP. :D

The often unbearable condition of I-ness craves companionship.

Yes, that myopic ' eyeness' may be a cause of, or conversely, be caused by none such companionship, agreed.

I'm no longer wild and crazy. I miss that. "All my rowdy friends have settled down."--Hank Williams Jr. but--the stories I could tell! Beer and nostalgia go hand in hand.

In the teeth of I hurt or I am lonely all philosophical considerations become null. Singing of the state of affairs seems to help. Finding a like-minded spirit helps.

It does, yet one tends to think that the early illusions work like Capital, they feed of the gifts which offer diminished return, as it was fodder, and most of it is wasted. (on the young).
Then the natural progression is disillusionment, unless...........

The proper mix is found, a drink of the elixir, the manna, with the happy hour crowd's tolerance.

Bob and I sing sadness. Will you join us, Jesus? Have a beer on us. Your life story was sad. And you, unlike David, did not cry out for vengeance. Neither do we.

The sad song is never again,
Not the vague it might have been.
No longer able to drink a beer
Because I cannot stop at one
Means more to Bob than me, I fear,
Means something I alone have done.
I would not have our friendship die
Because I needed to be dry.


Where's Orbie?

I mostly drink alone in my home. It's a good way to cope with ILP. :D


lol So how many drinks does it take for you to realize that THAT coping mechanism has worked?
SAPERE AUDE!


If I thought that everything I did was determined by my circumstancse and my psychological condition, I would feel trapped.


What we take ourselves to be doing when we think about what is the case or how we should act is something that cannot be reconciled with a reductive naturalism, for reasons distinct from those that entail the irreducibility of consciousness. It is not merely the subjectivity of thought but its capacity to transcend subjectivity and to discover what is objectively the case that presents a problem....Thought and reasoning are correct or incorrect in virtue of something independent of the thinker's beliefs, and even independent of the community of thinkers to which he belongs.

Did it take. I've gone over twenty weeks without consuming a drop of alcohol.

Bob was a well meaning poster. I never quite grokked him but I totally get why other people glommed onto him.

Good to see you, Xunzian!!! I wasn't referring to the Bob who posts on the philosophy forums, but to a step-nephew, who is a country music picker & singer. Beer and country music seem to go together.
