When i drink liquor i become really reckless and start trying to fight everyone and end up getting into trouble. Then the next day i feel really guilty. If i get drunk off of beer its not as bad.

I used to work in a bar and can tell you that alcohol makes many people aggressive.

I’m a happy type of drunk and I believe that if you can’t handle alcohol in excess you should avoid alcohol in excess.

It depends on the mood I’m in while drinking and the situation I’m in. I can be legally too drunk to drive however still be in total control of myself. Other times in the past two drinks and I’ve really let loose. I’m more reckless with a credit card than I am with alcohol.

You've got to stop drinking liquor full stop, you can still have a good time just drinking beer, I haven't drunk vodka for 10 years, it hasn't bothered me,I thought I would miss it, but haven't.

Too much vodka used to make me want to get in a fight.
Tequila made me act like a crazy 5yr old, which for me was fun!
I never drank too much vodka again since I punched my now-husband in the mouth twice many years ago. I can't remember doing it, I remember everything else about the fight.

I guess if you're gonna drink, stick with drinks that make you feel good.

I used to drink Jack Daniel's straight from the bottle but quit drinking it altogether because it made me violent.Any other whiskey and I'm fine.

It's best to avoid the stuff you know causes problems.
