    I've had a dry january due to work and other uni things. I'm usually a bit of a binge drinker, I actually enjoy binge 'lash' sessions.

    But I sit here working on courswork today from 8am. And all I can think about is the next beverage.

    I am contemplating wandering to the pub on my tod and just downing about 6 pints of guiness.

    How long can you go off the lash for? Do you get the urge, like 4pm mid day on this fine saturday?


    I'm not sure I can take this any more, like cold turkey.

    I need a night out.. argh... no amount of tea and biscuits will cure this urge I have just to sink lots and lots of booze.

    I went 3 months this time last year. (From new years day til my 21st bday) The whole not drinking part didn't really bother me and I cudda probably gone a lot longer. I just didn't like not having the choice not to drink!

    I've gone a good 15-18 months without getting drunk (had drinks in that time, but not enough to get more than that slight fuzzy feeling). Could easily go a lot longer. For me alcohol is a remedy to the 9-5, with an interesting life style and keeping busy there's not need for alcohol at all. I only ever feel like I want to get drunk when I'm frustrated with things.

    longest I've been sober since I started drinking regularly is probably around 9 months. TBH I don't get drunk very often anymore - unless someone else is paying.

    I don't get really really drunk that often- i had one really bad incident a year and half ago with alcohol where i was extremely ill for days and it put me off really. So although i do sometimes get drunk, im not really a person that feels the need for alcohol to have fun/ uses it just to get drunk!
    I do like to drink with friends, which can lead to getting drunk obviously, but it's not really my main aim of the evening!

    Couple of months I'd say. Used to be every weekend (meaning Friday-Saturday, recovering on Sunday) but since I've started smoking weed it's getting pretty rare that I'll go out to clubs and the like.

    I don't get wasted anymore. Now I'm 18 I'm bored of it, haha! It seems as though everyone feels the same... also had a couple of bad experiences where I just couldn't remember ANYTHING, so now I tend to get up to about a 5 out of 10 drunk, rather than getting properly off my face. Had quite a lot to drink last week, but then I went out a lot more than usual.

    I don't feel the need to go out on the lash much at all... maybe once a every monthish. Going to the pub for a pint is different though, i feel a bit odd if i haven't been out to the pub for a few days mainly due to the fact that loads of socs go to meetings at the pub or go to the pub afterwards so i have the opportunity to go to the pub on sunday, monday, tuesday, thursday every week.

    I remember last year I didn't go out at all from february to may. Atm I'm going out quite a lot but I expect it will die down again as the second year work piles up.

    Ages. The majority of my flatmates don't drink, so I'm used to it (refuse to drink alone in my room). I overcompensate horrendously when I'm at home with my alky friend though.

    Erm, any amount of time, easily.

    If you're not in control of your drinking, that's a problem.

    Same, now I've turned 18 I'm pretty bored of drinking!

    I went to about 4 weeks in January during exams without alcohol; I could've gone longer easily but I would've felt socially awkward around all my drunk friends.
