So you drink. Well done, you.

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything Cambodia-related. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

So you drink. Well done, you.

Post by Soi Dog »

Doesn't it EVER get old for some of you to bring up your alcohol drinking predilections on internet forums? Why do you feel it is important or interesting to mention the fact that you drink copious amounts of alcohol? For fuck's sake, it is not an accomplishment. If you omitted the lame "it's beer thirty" posts on the other forum, some prominent posters there would have absolutely nothing to say. I see those types of comments routinely on here as well now. What is it about drinking alcohol that you think is interesting enough to others that you feel compelled to post about it? Does it make you feel manly? Does it make you feel like "one of the guys"? I've never heard of anyone feeling the need to say "I love drinking lemonade. It's lemonade thirty. I'm going out now to pound down many glasses of my favorite lemonade. Jeezus do i have a sugar-induced lemonade headache today." Why? Because that is not interesting or impressive either.

Getting shit faced drunk and trying to impress your friends while doing so was something new and fun...back in high school. By all means, drink until your liver fails. But no one cares how much you drink or how much you can drink or how often.-

Other drinkers do. Its also why people go drink together instead of just huddled in their room sucking down mekong. It's a social activity.

I drink so I can get really drunk and then stare at myself in the mirror because when I am drunk, I look so fucking handsome to myself.

Good point. We need some lemonade smilies too.


P.S. Do you drink? Genuinely curious.

Actually you should be careful with Lemonade. Years ago I used to have a Lemonade and Archers problem.

Don’t worry I schnapped out of it eventually.

Be honest, that's hangover related, so OP stands.
