    Not a sustainable thing day after day after day , as we all know.

    Still when things get tough its better than Vidodin and less harmful overall.
    Grey Goose works for me, but the side effects are too pronounced.

            it seemingly makes it better, and then you wake up the next morning with your brain floating around in the haze of $3 kamikaze specials from your night the local gay bar. why oh why did
            they ever think anything made with 'well' vodka deserved to be called 'special'?

            and the hangover makes it worse.

                  I think it's like anything else, it depends on the individual. One of the big problems with taking a drink to relax, it's too easy to go beyond the drink or two.........

                  For this reason, plus all the different meds I take, I've stayed away from having a drink.. I thought about it at holiday time, when everyone was having a drink, but decided against it.

                    This is pretty much my take as well. I'm not on a lot of meds, but I am very cautious of alcohol because of the ones I am on...that, and I fear I may like it a kittle too much for my own good.

                        I feel better with alcohol as it relaxes me and not makes me hyper. I think it depends on your tolerance to alcohol or your reaction.

                            For me it really depends. A glass of wine or a good beer once in a while can help. Too much alcohol definitely makes my pain worse and interferes with my sleep, particularly in the second half of the night. So I stay away from that.

                                Same here. As soon as I feel the alcohol/oxycocet buzz, it takes the fun out of it.
