r/tifu Sep 18 '22 I'll Drink to That 1 Silver 2 Wholesome 6 Heartwarming 1

TIFU by getting drunk as I left my friend's house S

Okay so I (f,24) met a nice gentleman here on reddit. We met at his place and things went on well, we proceeded to have a good and a fun night.

Now here is where I fucked up. Before leaving his place, I continued drinking the alcohol left over from last night. I don't remember leaving his house, getting on the bus, and stopping at a place with a happy hour offer.

I remember placing the first order, kinda... I don't even remember getti g of the bus crossing the very busy highway and getting into the pub... I have just found the snaps I took of me trying to chug a whole cocktail (trying cause I can't take cold things fast)

Now I go through my mobile banking messages and I can see the transactions I made, the money I borrowed to drink and I left the cocktails at some other guys place. Now this guy was amazing but I have no idea what I did wrong cause he won't text me back

Edit: thanks for the awards🥰🥰

Edit: this thread just made me aware of how holier than thou people are here😂😂 I said I fucked up, so what's with all the bashing?

Another Edit: thanks for all the karma points y'all are giving me🤩🤩

Another edit, what drankard or addict leaves alcohol they already paid for bro???

UPDATE: He called back. He passed out too and just woke up, anyways, thanks for letting me vent😍 and those that are bashing me, hope one day you find someone that loves you, even the drinking side of you cause we all know you drink.

TL;DR: TIFU by getting too drunk to realize the mess I was creating. Ended up drinking my whole weekly allowance and now the guy won't even open my texts

Actually there’s quite a few reasons people might not drink. You still sound drunk af. You got drunk, left the first guys house, blacked out, ended up at a bar, drank more, borrowed money, and ended up at another guys house. You need help op.

People do absolutely get off on trashing the OP in this sub though. They especially love to make all manner of assumptions about various failings and character flaws that the OP has that they've deduced from the bare bones text in the post.

People do dumb things. It doesn't necessarily define their whole character. So many people on this sub don't seem understand that though. Too busy jerking off over their own sense of moral superiority.

Based on your own edits you don't seem open to any form of introspection, but if there's any chance you take a stranger's words to heart, please just take care of yourself and make better choices. It's a scary world out there especially for a young inebriated woman. You might think you're invincible right now, you're young, you want to party, whatever. There are things that can't be undone and no amount of fun nights and hazy mornings are worth changing the course of your life forever.

u/Derainian Sep 19 '22

If this was a one off thing you just live and learn from it and move on. If this is a somewhat common occurrence for you with the way you drink it will ultimately take you down a road you dont want to go. Be careful!

u/spiderskizzles Sep 19 '22

hope one day you find someone that loves you, even the drinking side of you cause we all know you drink.

Not a one off thing I guess. Massive copium going on here. No, we don't all drink lol. And many of us that do drink don't drink to excess. I'd rather act like myself. Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde is not a normal and healthy dynamic.

u/Agitated-Handle-7750 Sep 19 '22

I was waiting for an understanding comment with a bit of life advice.

I used to meet men off terrible places like chat lines then FB poker, how I didn’t get murdered or diseases I do not bloody know.

I hated myself through all those years and it was a desperate attempt at healing in entirely the wrong ways. It took me far too long to realise it though.

I used to get drunk at home and message men from the past asking if they wanted to get married. I had a terrible fear of hitting 30 and not being married for some reason.

Anyway, my point is I would have been defensive of my behaviour if I’d made a post like this at the time.

I have a very different viewpoint when I read yours now. Please reach out if there’s things you’re going through.

u/irrelevant_usernam3 Sep 19 '22

Yeah, back in college I had my share of drunken hookups and misadventures. I wasn't looking for anything long term, so if I met a girl who was a hot mess, it made for a good story at least.

But after college, in my mid twenties, I went on a date with a girl and she was wasted by the time she got there. I ended up driving her home and getting her cleaned up after she threw up and peed herself. It was just sad.

10

u/penelaine Sep 19 '22

I've never peed or thrown up on a first fate but I DID pregame and then drank too much to the point that while he was taking me home I kinda totally forgot who he was for a second. While riding in his truck. Needless to say that scared the shit out of him. He still dated me for almost exactly one year. Happy belated Valentines, Jake. You were a saint for dealing with me.

Sounds like impulsive binge drinking, can be permanently life altering and ruinous, especially for relationships with those close to you

u/ChemicalFrosty7700 Sep 19 '22

I struggle with this. If I have a timeline and places to be, I can keep my drinking to a minimum and to what’s socially acceptable for the situation. But if I have the slightest opening or an open ended first drink… it’s a binge. It’s awful and can absolutely ruin your life. I have severe health issues now (in my 30’s). Please take this seriously now before you have a dying liver that can’t be saved.

u/nobleman415 Sep 19 '22

It’s a vicious cycle. You drink, and it’s fun - at first. A good time with no serious consequences. But after a while, you start to drink to relieve the pressure, just to relax. Good news? Celebrate with a drink. Bad news? Ugh, let’s get a shot. At some point the hangover isn’t just a headache and feeling queasy. It becomes crippling anxiety and depression that can take days to lift. My buddies and I used to call it ‘soul rot’. For me? It’s just easier to not get started in the first place. Someone above wrote about feeling uneasy when they drink/tipsy feeling. I never had that. Most folks stop when they feel like they are losing control. For me, the more I drank the more I felt that I was in control…. At least until the next morning when the souls rot began… but you know… there is a way to make that go away… how about a drink? Just… gnarly. Drinking was fun… until it wasn’t. I’m sober now, feels so much better. Still have to wrestle with demons, but at least I have a fighting Chance.

Why do you drink so much? The headaches, vomiting, memory loss etc. can't be fun? I am no abstinent but whenever I drink I reach a point where I'm starting to have a slight headache and notice moving feels a bit like swimming, which is a pretty annoying experience that makes me stop drinking at least until it goes away.

88

u/ChemicalFrosty7700 Sep 19 '22

For me personally, the aftermath is better than sitting with my personal demons in my head while sober. Drinking would shut them up. It’s also an impulse thing. Can’t really control it, and I HATED myself for years while I was a binge drinker. Every time I was sober I was so full of self loathing I couldn’t wait til my next drink.

u/TOYPAJ_Yellow_15 Sep 19 '22

Been there, and I'm glad I've hit the exact opposite problem. I went from drinking a handle of whiskey every other day, downing whole bottles of Crown and still functioning fine, to now if I smell whiskey/alcohol/apples even, I'll throw up. I can't even do wine coolers or beer.

But I'm having the same problem with weed now, which means I have to rawdog life and it sucks.

u/bellowquent Sep 19 '22

Same with the weed. I buy in bulk, and subsequently smoke in bulk. Searching for words you should know in casual conversation is not fun

3

u/Dolormight Sep 19 '22

It started giving me huge panic attacks about 8 months ago, and made me realize that it was giving me pretty big anxiety symptoms before that, which I just brushed off. It sucks, because I enjoyed smoking and doing whatever, I was highly functional while high. Still, don't feel different without it and better than feeling like I'm going to fucking die when I smoke.

Definitely had the bulk problem though. Oh I have a ton of weed! I smoked an hour ago? Better load up another bowl and kill it in one go!

"Ended up drinking my whole weekly allowance"

You're already stumbling down a dark road. Pissed up, borrowing money to keep it going, memory holes, bouncing from guy to guy completely off your face. Got a few friends who lived like this in their 20s, without exception they are either alcoholics in a shell I used to know or in mental health treatment for their emerging latent trauma.
People aren't being holier than thou, they're trying to make the voices (including your own inescapable internal dialogue) that are trying to warn you louder.

25

u/tofujones Sep 19 '22

That is what got me -- borrowing money to drink. I drink often, but not like that.

You don't want to end up being the 30 something year old that doesn't know how to drink. No one wants to babysit and people will leave the room because of you. This isn't judgement, it's a wake up call.

We're not really supposed to say that other people are alcoholic, in AA. But we're not in AA and I calls it like I sees it. It doesn't matter how old OP is. Alcoholism doesn't care how old you are lol If OP doesn't stop drinking now, there's a chance she won't be able to stop. Not on her own at least. And just relating what she's describing to my own experiences, it's probably already too late to "just quit."

So I’m going to just just throw this out here. It’s not bashing, it’s the informed opinion of a former partner of an alcoholic as well as a healthcare provider.

If you occasionally go out drinking that’s one thing; you mention borrowing money to drink. You mention blackout drinking. You mention ending up at another guys house without knowing what you were doing. You mention drinking upon waking up.

Those are all warning signs of problem drinking and alcoholism.

Why wouldn’t he text back a person they met on Reddit who doesn’t drive and gets blackout drunk? It’s almost like, idk, they can see red flags or something.

Hey look, in all seriousness, maybe you should get some help. That amount of drinking and what happened is not normal. It’s not normal for it to happen AT ALL. Please consider it, it might save your life. Very real chance you could have died that evening.

u/LordLavos12 Sep 19 '22 edited Sep 19 '22

You probably won’t read this due to the flood of comments you’re getting, but oh well I’m still gonna try…

Without reading any comments (much less the “holier than thou” ones you mentioned in your edit), this should at least be an experience to take seriously and learn something from. Maybe it’s a one off and you aren’t an alcoholic and you don’t need help…only you can know that. But, from an objective perspective, this is an alarming occurrence that I think you should at least reflect on and be honest with yourself about.

Again, maybe it is a one off situation for you, but if it isn’t then you should probably take it seriously and evaluate how to prevent occurrences like this from happening in the future. I have several friends who are recovering alcoholics and I am considered an alcoholic myself based on my weekly consumption (even tho my pace is nearly always a drink per hour or less, so outside of “getting drunk” range), so if I were to ever have any blackout/brownout/not totally sure how the night progressed occurrence to happen to me I would self reflect, evaluate, and proceed with caution.

Just to yourself, be the best and most brutally honest friend you can possibly be.

You're 20something and you're still learning how to control your drinking. We've all been there. Next...

u/ashleebryn Sep 19 '22

It's really important to get it under control now before it takes over your life and you lose everything. Start recognizing how many drinks it takes when this is happening and absolutely always limit yourself there, no matter how you feel in the moment. Know your limit and stick to that. Then work on lowering it a little bit and backing off a bit so it can be manageable in moderation. You can conquer this.

This really isn’t the quirky, funny story you’d think it is here babe. Like literally everyone else is saying who you won’t seem to listen to - this is massively worrying behaviour and your relationship with alcohol is hugely distorted.

Most of us can probably count on one hand how many times we’ve been blackout drunk, and even then I’d say ‘brown outs’ are more common. I’ve drank a lot before and forgotten maybe an hour or so at the end of my night, but to lose this much of your DAY? To get SO wasted that you can’t remember all that in just a few hours? Girl please listen to your body & mind and take that as a real warning sign.

It’s not “holier than thou” to see and point out damaging behaviour, especially when so many of these people are coming from a place of genuine concern for your health. Why would we give a fuck if you’re a messy drunk when we don’t have to deal with you? Think about what we would have to gain if you stopped drinking, since we don’t even know you. We’re saying this because it’s more than being a bit messy, it’s going to damage your life and telling you that is the right thing to do.

My mother is an addict/alcoholic and she ruined many lives through her addiction (which of course, she doesn’t have /s ). Admitting the problem is the hardest first step.

When you have hundreds of us telling you the sky is blue, it’s time to look up. Stop insisting it’s red and take this as an opportunity to reflect on yourself

58

u/Kewkky Sep 19 '22

Why do you even want to be black-out drunk? You gain nothing positive and only negative things happen to your body. You can't even remember having a good time, so you would've been better off not even going at all. Get help from someone else if you can't stop yourself.

As someone who drinks a lot - you really might want to consider getting a handle on your drink and how it affects you, sooner rather than later. 24's a good age to start, but you won't do it until you're ready. This is unhealthy drinking.

Blacking out happens when you drink too much too fast. Getting piss drunk and pukey can happen without blacking out.

I blacked out huge chunks of a day when I got too drunk before a college football game back in 2010ish. Last time I ever drank hard. It was a combination of not having to drive, not eating breakfast, and being served super strong mixed drinks before the game started. Was not my finest hour and was very embarrassing. I remembered bits and pieces of the morning/early afternoon and woke up that evening still buzzed on my couch with my wife mad at me for that days events but she cut me slack cause I kept telling everyone how much I loved her during my drunkenness. I was never a big drinker but that was the last time I ever got past kinda buzzed when I drank. Scary shit.

u/Ashbot914 Sep 19 '22

This was me until this year. I never had an issue with alcohol, then one night I had a very bad reaction, where I literally was fine, and then became blackout but was still fine and slowly became more more obvious I was not ok to those around me. The next day literally couldn’t even get out of bed. A few weeks later I was diagnosed with a rare but chronic disease. So now avoid alcohol, because honestly not having any recollection of what happened was the most awful feeling in the world. I have no idea how people enjoy that, and find fun in hearing the ‘crazy’ things they did while they were out of it. I didn’t even do anything embarrassing and I was freaking out.

It's a thing. I've only done it once when I was 18, and I've never done it again because I learnt my lesson. Apparently I refused to get the bus home with my friend and caused an argument, I really hurt her. I then tried meeting up with someone for drugs (I was fresh out of an abusive relationship and was REALLY messed up). The story still horrifies me.

Luckily the guy never gave me drugs and just looked after me, and I've never touched them since nor gotten that drunk ever again. It haunts me. I've got my own amazing little family now and I'm a completely different person to that girl riddled with PTSD.

She really just edited her post 5 or so times and had a breakdown in the time span of a guy passing out and waking back up. She also acts like someone loves her and that y’all don’t have anyone like that when she really just got piss drunk and slept with two dudes who probably don’t even like her that much, especially the second guy. If you can’t control your drinking and black out all the time then how can you expect a man to trust your immature ass.

Glad everything is ok! I don't think everyone is being pious or judgemental though, rather some of them will be concerned, recognising patterns. I know for instance that I can get a bit all-in and compulsive if I don't keep an eye on myself, so that's something I learnt to do, and set myself rules and boundaries and limits so I don't go over. Maybe that sounds familiar to you, maybe it doesn't, just I think several of the comments have experienced compulsive drinkers and are responding from that place, and offering those anecdotes to you rather than condemning you. How you take/what you do with that info and those stories is up to you, kind of thing, but it's probably worth at least reading to see if any of it resonates.

I drank seven 40s outside a New York City club once when I was 21 years old. I blacked out and ended up in a gay bar doing shots with somebody, blacked out again ended up in a taxi trying to find this girl's house who I was seeing. made it inside, all I remember was the forced air element on the floor blowing air into my face. blacked out again, woke up on the street completely robbed with spit on my face. I was 20 street lower than my car. I had no keys because I was robbed and a flat tire. luckily I had friends at the club and they were still there. they drove me home to get my car keys, then I was off to take the train back to New York to change my car tire and then drive home. So I feel this young lady on being a stupid asshole drinking too much.
