  1. So I've toned it down a bunch lately. Even went like 10 days with no alcohol. However, today had an itch and downed a couple of drinks at lunch. Feeling it a bit right now. Work is fun again!
  2. First off, I love Bojack, so you are simply spurring me on with that. But seriously, I'm not doing it to "increase productivity", but regain some normalcy. Self-medication's primary purpose is to keep people from running out of the room screaming and set themselves on fire. I know this is not a long-term solution, but I'm just doing it to get by for now. I plan to get in front of a real doc soon.
  3. You and me both. Don't forget about Elton John, Iggy Pop and Kareem. ETA: And Stallone!!! Don't think I could take him.
  4. Well I'm at the office 100% of the time and have never been close to slurring/stumbling. I get to a light buzz and coast for a few hours with that.....I do see the danger of going beyond that point though, and it is too easy to do. I realize I am in a precarious position.
  5. Fireball in coffee, chew some cinnamon gum and don't breathe on anyone. Been working for months now
  6. Thanks. If you don't mind me asking, what are the side effects (if any) you've noticed?
  7. Are they just a take it as you need it thing? I think part of what turned me off to prescription meds is the one time I got on one for anxiety, I had to take it every day. It had side effects and I weaned myself off of it once life settled down. I don't want to have to go down that path again.
  8. So, I'm still doing this on occasion. Honestly I now realize it is a self-medicating thing. When I get stressed, I put Fireball in my coffee, or mix a Truly/Mike's with a Powerade fountain drink or something like that. Have been doing it off and on throughout the year as things ebb and flow. It calms my nerves and unlocks me from getting so stressed out that I'm not functioning. I'm sure there is some kind of med that can do the same thing, but booze is not that expensive and doesn't require a doctor's visit and prescription. I am considering trying pot as I live in Missouri. Medical MJ is supposed to happen by next year. For some reason I'm more open to that than the classical psych drugs. I know drinking at work is a dangerous proposition (my office is pretty laid back about it and it is fairly common here after 4:00). But for now, it is doing the trick. Anyway, was thinking about all this today and remembered starting this thread.
  9. So I've started throwing a little Fireball into my morning coffee. Sometimes throw a little into an afternoon coke or sneak in a lunchtime beer. Makes the day go by faster and I don't know that my productivity is negatively impacted. In fact, I'd argue that I'm a little more relaxed and more productive during the day. Anyone else a borderline alcoholic participate in experimental drinking as well?
  10. Walked in on my parents around 10-11 yrs old. Parents had a water bed and I was curious what that popping noise was. I was aware enough at that age to know what was going on. Opened door and shut it in a fraction of a second.
  11. Maybe. Probably most of them at work. My social circle is pretty clean cut, but you never really know. How does one go about asking? Should I wait until a happy hour and bring it up? I'm not all that "cool" so advice is appreciated. TIA, will answer yours.
  12. So I haven't been around much lately, but looking at the posting rates plus the "Recently Browsing" count of 31, this place seems like a ghost town. What gives?
  13. Just passed. Nothing up and running yet. (Missouri)
  14. Yeah, when it happens, it is great. Issue is infrequency. Would like 2-3 times per week, but end up around once per week thanks to life and whatnot.
  15. So, I've become a little bit more stressed out than usual and am contemplating trying pot to help mellow me out. Problem is, I live in a state where it is still illegal and I've never tried it before. In fact, I don't have a clue where to find it and don't know anyone who uses (at least openly). Any help would be appreciated. Deuces. NO SOUP FOR YOU!!!
  16. Ill be moving on thanks mostly to Hopkins & Olsen.
  17. Yup. 99% of the time they do a very difficult job with professionalism and accuracy, but everyone hates them for that 1%.You really think 99% of refs and cops are great people? That would make them the most ethical bunch of any vocation in human history. You might need to rethink your numbers on power-trippers and ego. There's a difference between doing your job with professionalism and accuracy and being a great person. There is a lot more accountability involved in reffing than a bunch of internet trolls in their mommy's basement will acknowledge. But keep fighting the good fight there, ace. Maybe someday you'll be man enough to eat your sandwich with the crust still on it.
  18. This year has had more value at QB than any other that I can remember. Could have had a nice 4-5 QB's without spending much. Seems different from previous years (except the year Kurt Warner was $5). All of the guys below have easily outplayed their pricetags: Fitzpatrick $3 Cousins $3 Taylor $5 Hoyer $5 Bortles $7 Carr $7 Mariota $7 McCown $7 Palmer $8 Dalton $9 Any combo of these guys has been golden this year. Meanwhile, Peyton, Brees and Luck have struggled, Ben got hurt, and a whole lot of meh for the higher priced guys. Even Brady was a deal at $14. I don't remember any season being quite like this at the QB position in this contest.
