I'm glad you posted.

Yes. The cutting out everyone is hard. I'm the only "problem drinker/alcoholic" in my social group, but every single person/friend I have in my life enjoys a glass of wine after dinner, or a beer or two at a BBQ. I already feel a criplling lonlieness trying to get sober, but to also do it in isolation would be too much. I can't understand cutting contact with say your alcoholic friends if the only thing you do is drink, but that's different.

The one I went to was small, and it was like an ole boys club of men who had all been sober for ages and knew each other for years. so it was a lot of playful insults to each other/inside jokes. I was probably by two decades the youngest person, one of only two women and clean like two days. It was not a fit.

=And yes, I would do exactly the same as you. Enjoy a pint or two with friends, then drink vodka at home alone.

So. What are you plans now. There is also a different recovery program I've been meaning to check out called Refuge that is Buddhist based? ( They have meetings in my town and a couple of the folks in my SMART group go and have positive things to say.

I own a copy of The Craft of the Cocktail and it is thoroughly amazing. I also have Bartending for Dummies and it is pretty good as well.

This one. Has the best reviews. It is expensive but if it saves you from a DUI it's money well spent. It really surprised me that I was over the legal limit after a full 8-10 hours of sleep.

This one has worked pretty well for me. Nice and compact, so I can hide it in whatever I want along with my “bottle of water”.

I’m not an affiliate in any way, shape or form.

That was a pretty nifty watch. You might also like a book called A History of the World in Six Glasses.

u/Cobra_McJingleballs · 3 pointsr/cripplingalcoholism

I believe that reference came from Under the Influence, which I highly recommend.

This Naked Mind is good too.

The Kindle app is being a bitch and not letting me text search that excerpt but I’m near positive it was from Under the Influence, which is both revelatory and will make you nod to yourself and go “uh huh, that’s why I began drinking!”

u/txstatekate · 5 pointsr/cripplingalcoholism

alcohawk! My personal best is 0.31 before black zoning it. I probably drank more after that.

They make alarms for kids that clip to your underwear. Something like this. Depending on how hard you are to wake up, this could be helpful. I'm sure diapers would work, but that feels like giving in to the piss to me.

Amazon link for those interested.


Hobo, worth it?

u/buubi · 1 pointr/cripplingalcoholism

My favorite book of all is Lolita. A close second might be Rules of Attraction. And I have to mention The Art of Racing in the Rain because it made me cry like a stupid baby. Please read that book.

I got this one off Amazon and I swear by it. BACtrack S35 Breathalyzer Portable Breath Alcohol Tester

u/silviapala · 2 pointsr/cripplingalcoholism

I would suggest you to read this book: - it lays out everything you need to know in order to start change, with an overview and practical tips.

u/user808a · 1 pointr/cripplingalcoholism

I have found the $130 BACtrack S80 to be very consistent.

u/LowerEarthOrbit · 2 pointsr/cripplingalcoholism

is the book you are referring to? I have just ordered it btw.

Ah and This Naked Mind is the other garbage fire which is embraced by /SD - I have read it and it is so bad. So bas as they are detrimental to the people reading them.

u/ftbghs · 2 pointsr/cripplingalcoholism

Very shitty, not accurate to a degree. I got this one I've had it before, but the cops took it from me.

u/whaathe · 2 pointsr/cripplingalcoholism

Yah I been thinking of buying one myself. Seems like there is two distinct types: semiconductor or fuel cell. The first is your cheap and crappy, the second is not-so-cheap and good-ish. No BAC tester is completely accurate from a breath read. But the fuel-cell ones tend to be consistent and fairly accurate (maybe be over-cautious if you're thinking of driving though.. the +/- variance could fuck you up).

The particular one which I am personally thinking of buying is BACtrack S80.. on special at the moment. Recently there was a BAC breathalyzer installed at work which I've used a half a dozen times which has got me thinking about this.. Apparently my "oh cool finally got a buzz going" level is 0.21 :/

He has a bunch of books and publications -- and a youtube channel with his lectures (he was a professor before he got fired for taking a stand against Canada's law making it illegal to use wrong gender pronouns) most of which are about religion But I found him through a Joe Rogan podcast which was a bit less dry then the youtube videos and highlights a lot of his beliefs without sitting through a lecture.

Then I read a few of his books (his most recent one was a best seller on Amazon for weeks. It's a little wordy, but no worse then the engineering textbooks I was forced to read.

I really like his "clean your room" bit.

u/teemunney · 3 pointsr/cripplingalcoholism

I bought this one a little over a month ago. It has proven to be reliable as long as you rinse your mouth with water or alcohol-free mouthwash before testing. The manufacturer will even recalibrate it for you if you send a check/money order for 20 bucks along with the device.

I have an interlock on my car and got tired of violations after my second one--it's a $50 fee you must pay within 72 hours of each violation, gotta go to an installation center and all that crap too. I'd say for $30 and having no violations since, it's been worth it.
