    Cheers? man…

    So antabuse did you no good then did it? So your? whole attempt to persuade using a fallacious argument just went to pieces! No thanks, I put alcohol behind me several years ago,so more for you fella! Have a nice day! LMAO!!

  • grimlund says:

    I am drunk now. So? you can try anything you want..

  • firemetal2007 says:

    And if it’s used for modifying behavior, then why is a chemical substance necessary for that? I was an? alcoholic myself and I know what it means to be addicted to a substance. However, I’ve grown up and accepted that I have to make a change in MYSELF for their to be any real legitimate resolution to my behaviors. And no 12 step programs such as AA/NA did not work either. Dogmatic fundamentalist groups do no one any good. Secular treatment FTW!!

  • firemetal2007 says:

    Didn’t i just tell you that I haven’t ever tried antabuse? Haven’t we already been over the fact that I don’t have to try a substance to speak on the topic? And I personally know people in my own life that have taken it and drank on it anyway. It doesn’t always do what it’s supposed to do because everyone’s body chemistry is different. Not everyone has the same result? when taking a substance. Antabuse is used for modifying behavior, not as medical treatment for withdrawals, liver damage, etc.

  • grimlund says:

    Now, I get really mad.
    Have you tried? to drink on antabuse??

  • grimlund says:

    Yea. I deny it because I have tried It my self. Again. You don´t have a f—-g clue about what you are talking? about so you can be quiet…

  • firemetal2007 says:

    I don’t really care if you have been on antabuse yourself or not. It alters the natural function of your body and? even though it does make a person have adverse effects to consuming alcohol, that doesn’t mean that it will stop people from drinking anyways. If it works for you, fine. What if you stop taking antabuse, then what? And if you did, then what made you believe that you needed it in the first place?

  • firemetal2007 says:

    I didn’t compare cocaine or heroin to antabuse. You fail to be able to analyze an argument properly. That was an argument against you making a claim of whether or not I have tried a substance before. Different argument, you mis-identified the association my friend. It is valid to state that one is not required to try a substance to speak on the subject matter. You failed to recognize this point. Antabuse is? a drug, you can deny it all you like.

  • grimlund says:

    I have been on antabuse my self so you can go and hide away somewere because you are only guessing my friend. To compare antabuse with heroine ore cocaine is so stupid that I thinking if you really has a brain to think with.
    If you? haven´t tried them you can be quiet…

  • firemetal2007 says:

    Nope. Never been on cocaine or heroin either. Does that mean that I am required to have tried those substances to accurately state that they are drugs? No it does not. To state that only those that have used antabuse are the? only ones who can speak on it, is a logical fallacy. You do know what those are don’t you? Arguments from authority? Arguments from ignorance? Begging the question? Non-Sequitor? There are numerous drugs that exist that you cannot feel or get addicted to. What is your point?

  • grimlund says:

    Have? you been on antabuse yourself??

  • firemetal2007 says:

    And YOU obviously don’t know what YOU are talking about! Since when are drugs only classified? as drugs when you “feel” them or whether someone can get “addicted” to them? That has got to be the dumbest and most ignorant assertion i’ve ever heard! Antabuse alters your body’s natural ability to break down acetaldehyde in the liver, therefore it is by every definition a drug. People rely on it to stay off of alcohol. I never said they were chemically dependent on it moron!

  • grimlund says:

    And you don´t have a clue about what you are talking about. Antabuse is no drug. You don´t get high or? anything on them. You don´t feel them. The only thing they do is to make a negative reaction if you drink alcohol.
    No one in this world can get addicted to antabuse, believe me…
    Antabuse is just a help to make people stay clean…

  • bratt07 says:

    I know my roommates have been giving me disulfiram in my filtered water. I drink, my? kids drink and so does anyone who comes in my house. I have tried to trace the substance but everyone says it is not traceable. I had a girlfriend come stay with me and she couldn’t get her brain straight for almost 2 weeks after leaving. Allowing alcoholics that can’t drink access to a traceless drug is insane. They have ruined my life and created issues with my family,

  • Corrupt5358 says:

    There are a few problems with this, severe reactions on alcohol and moderate dosage of antabuse can lead to death, therefore, drinking a bottle of vodka in a few hours to get incredibly drunk, then taking 10 tablets of disulfiram with the last vodka and coke=suicide.

    As disulfiram neither gets rid of cravings or physical withdrawal effects, I dont think it should ever be used! A chronic alchy could die accidentally on this. Vodka takes40mins to take full? effect and can be easily drank quick.

  • 20helga05 says:

    I was a blackout drinker for yrs. I started on antabuse. The thing is, say it’s a Mon or Tues and u hear about this great party on Sat, so u think: “there’s a party Sat nite so I won’t take the antabuse anymore this week til afterwards.” Wrong answer! Once antabuse is in ur system it stays for 2Weeks after u stop taking it! So if u drank u Still would become deathly ill. I wanted? to stop drinking, but when wknd rolled around I couldnt say no. Antabuse helped me. I no longer drink. Its been yrs.
