my girl says that C.A. is a superior forum but I've been here too long to move now.

Read a few posts there and seems like people with real problems, not drunkards. I'll stick with my tried and true. Love you guys!!

I took a look around, personally like it here better. Looks like some serious dunks though probally the type that gives us a bad name. They have alot more members it seems, but they lack the style that we have here and their website sucks. Plus we have a fucking magazine (what?? theres a magazine?)

It looks so old fashioned. Like from when the internet began.

I've been reading the crippling alcoholics boards every few days. One one hand, it is like reading an episode of intervention, which can be pretty lulzy when you're in the mood.What I don't like is that all of those people seem to be so guilt-addled. Seems like at least half of them hate the fact that they drink.

I can't hate that I drink.

I'm on reddit but the hivemind has a grudge against smoking (tobacco) and drinking... which irritates me to no end. Feel free to create an account and downvote any such threads/comments. I'm just there for the advice animals.
Be safe everyone.

That place looks pretty lame. Look at some of these thread titles from the first page:
What can I mix some cheap gin with that would taste acceptable?

suffering from anxiety? Drink a bottle a day to kill it? Here's my story

What is it about Unsweetened Iced Tea?

I've still got a 12 pack to finish here because my buddy left early as he wanted to pass out.

Is five o'clock vodka that bad?

Is There a Way to NOT Smell Like Booze?

I think it's time to stop.

Chimneyfishy pointed out the lameness pretty effectively. This saves me few moments for something more purposeful like getting another beer from fridge.

Sure twinkletoes, but don't expect my generosity to overwhelm you. I'm running out of booze all too soon at this pace.
