Best tricks


#22

My trick for pissing clean at work wasn’t too sophisticated, just tucked some fake pee/urine luck in my draws every time I went into the dispatch.

Just tidying up my ride, found my backup bottle lol.

Life’s so much easier sober.


#23

I was moving house 5 months after I got sober. Finding those old bottles around my home was a sobering experience and made me more determined that my new home would be a sober home.


#24

I recently found an old grinder and a jar full of resin balls while cleaning my closet. So ridiculous the lengths we go too.


#25

I had a teacher in 9th grade write in my yearbook(yeah, I had my teacher sign my yearbook) “I hope you use your powers for good, not evil”. I guess she saw something in me I didn’t. For so long I used them for evil, now I get what she meant. From here on out it is only for good.


#26

Grinder you say…isn’t that the gay dating app? :wink:


#27

Lol. It is. I thought I recognized you from somewhere before.

Is that itch still bothering you?


#28

Nah…you gotta scratch the itch brother…:wink:


#29

I’ll scratch yours if you scratch mine :wink:


#30

Sounds like one helluva deal to me


#31

To hide my drinking from my then wife I would by a 12 pack of non alcoholic beer and a 12 pack of regular beer. I would dump out the na and fill it up with regular beer.


#32

I would drink one of the NA beers that she ‘approved’ to hopefully hide the smell of the regular beers I kept hidden


#33

Ouch. NA beer is priced higher than regular beer in the U.K.- sad really


#34

That’s mainly cause the process is way more expensive…they make regular beer and then take the alcohol away


#35

Drinking NA beer was always like pissing into the wind to me lol


#36

I don’t know why I like this thread so much. Some of the stuff we did to try and hide our addiction is hilarious in a gallows humor sort of way.

I was a drunk but yet I was embarrassed to go to the same liquor store more than once a week so I had them strategically scouted over town out per day.

A disease of insanity.


#37

2008 I went two and half months without drinking with the help of antabus…I drank ten cans of NA beer a night anyways…who the fuck drinks that shit for fun…turns out I do :wink: though not anymore…haven’t had it in years.

I was a restaurant manager in a hotel. Stopped at the same liquor store every night. I still had my name tag/uniform on and the clerk asked ‘How many in the party tonight’? To which I said, ‘excuse me?’ To which she said, ‘You buy alcohol for the hotel here, right? Just wondered what the party was for’ :flushed::grimacing: Yesh :sweat: And that’s when I started varying my liquor stores :woman_facepalming:t3:


#39

LOL…In here the restaurant has to buy with a licence number…so you can’t just go to a store and say I want this and that…this means that the government knows how much you’ve bought and you have to report on the sales…so it’s difficult to try and avoid taxes etc…
When I was working as the restaurant manager in this one place where we had four floors and 800 seats for diners…the alcohol importers kept sending me so much test bottles that I never had to go buy alcohol…

My Circle K knew me as well. I stopped in for 5th of Rare Reserve nightly.

He probably misses me lol.

1 time I got off hella late, only had like 20 minutes to get to walmart to grab a handle. I must’ve looked terrible with it hustling to the checkout because an old guy said to me “you don’t need that young man” as he passed by me.


#41

HAhaha ikr!? I have no idea what she was thinking, but I still wanted to sink through the floor with embarrassment :see_no_evil: …and I remember sitting on an upsidedown crate ‘counting’ bottles/pours at the end of big parties…I was not a good person to be put in that room :drooling_face:
