Thanks jstephens9, Phillip, and others!!!

I think that this is OK here and can continue for those who want to do so!

I have realized that gay men here, as I am a gay man too, feel free to discuss this... now. Of course at times, it hurts! We can and do help each other, and others by talking FREELY!!

I am proud that this discussion is helping, in many ways. To many persons!

It is great to talk REAL!! ?? Let's continue...

hugs!!

I think most of this topic would do much better as a discussion in Safe Haven.  I'm not sure what most of this has to do with BBM's Open Forum.  Maybe we can agree to split part of this topic into a new thread?

Good idea Phillip. I completely agree.

Safe Heaven, in order to continue to booze as a subject, or ask this question in that thread?

In the BM film, the two main guys do booze.

And in to-day's gay world there are many booze places (probable too many), and even some booze as IN THE BM film (between two guys)?

Hugs!

Artiste you can drink alcoholic beverages socially without boozing. If you remember the first scene in the bar in Brokeback, Jack talks about needing a lot of whiskey up on the mountain. I can't remember the exact words. That was a part of the movie and a part of the culture and time. It would have seemed weird if they would have been sitting around drinking lemonade. Anyway, the point is that alcohol can be used in moderation. It doesn't have to be one extreme (no drinks) to the other extreme (boozing). And people can go to bars which I assume you mean by booze places and have drinks socially. They don't have to get drunk.

Thanks jstephens!

I still know that I lost many gay friends to such places with booze!! I miss them!

If you think that was that time in the BM movie, is it not also in to-day's gay world, booze as too much important?


We need to supply, effort and think of OTHER means to have us gays act and find another one WITHOUT booze?
Hugs!

I drink Artiste. I don't drink every night, but I do sometimes have a drink or two. It helps to relax me. I rarely drink to get drunk though.... well maybe EVERY ONCE IN A WHILE! lol

I sometimes take narcotic pain pills (vicodin) for my back and shoulder and when I take those obviously I cannot drink. But I enjoy a drink or two on Friday or Saturday night, just as long as I don't have to drive anywhere. :)

a little drop now and then is certainly AOK! it is the overdoing of the "happy hour" that causes problems.  :)

What I am afraid of is what I have seen, as I used to go to bars, and not much activity there except to booze;
wonder how many did cruise or have fun ??

Of, course boozing at home might be better in some ways, but one must learn to cruise there too??

Well, I wouldn't necessarily consider a couple of drinks "boozing" Artiste. But 10 or 15 drinks, now that's definately boozing imo.
