    To me, getting messy was never about getting drunk, it was quite the opposite.

    It always implied that we were going out and taking a multitude of uppers/downers....Pills, Ket, MDMA, Speed.

    When some of my friends who were against taking substances started using the term, I was very confused. Although it now seems to mean getting drunk to most people.

    Getting ****** off other drugs is hardly the opposite of getting drunk...you're just replacing alcohol with something else...

    This.
    Nail.Head.Hit.

    Because they are morons desperately trying to fill a gnawing vacuum within them that they don't have the spirit to understand is caused by their tacit acceptace of the dull standardised slave system they were born into.

    Try saying that when you're messy! As an aside though, a good chat over a few choice ales is a wonderful way to relax.

    I absolutely HATE that phrase! Nothing against getting drunk and going out or whatever, just the phrase really really does my head in. Especially when you have people on facebook all night talking about how "messy" they are. If you were going to sit all night on facebook, you might as well have just done it at home for free!

    It's not only a massively differant feeling, but there are differant social norms within the substance taking crowd.
    Nights out at raves are often alot differant to nights to your local cattle market after 10 stellas.

    Getty messy back in my day, 5 years ago meant taking drugs. Now it means getting drunk. What's more annoying is how things get described as "standard".

    Fair enough. I appreciate that. It's just I wouldn't describe it as opposite, that's all.
    (I also realise that, having not taken any of the aforementioned substances, except alcohol, that I can't personally make a reasonable comparison...)

    Yeah maybe opposite was abit of an extreme term.
