Titty humping Buddha...you hit a friend that had no arms. You owe this person a free kick to the head...your head...just to be clear. I'd leave the shrink alone.

I think it's important to note that this is US-based psychiatrists, where the entire medical establishment is geared around making as much money as possible from sick people.
The DSM is published by the American Psychiatric Association, and according to the journal PLOS Medicine, “69% of the DSM-5 task force members report having ties to the pharmaceutical industry.” The corruption of the APA by Big Pharma is nothing new. In 2008, the New York Times reported the following about APA: “In 2006, the latest year for which numbers are available, the drug industry accounted for about 30 percent of the association's $62.5 million in financing.”
“When Insel states that the disorders haven’t been validated,” Whitaker points out, “he is stating that the entire edifice that modern psychiatry is built upon is flawed, and unsupported by science... If the public loses faith in the DSM, and comes to see it as unscientific, then psychiatry has a real credibility problem on its hands.”

Funny MY VA care is good except for them dropping my school 3 weeks ago.
Psychiatrist is great I can sleep now and with with weed I can distract my anger and work on paintings. I am in critical care for my lungs and also the PTSD.
18. But I can't recall ever seeing anyone who drank 3 or more in 24 hours CONTINUE TO KEEP IT STRICTLY TO ONLY 3. IT ALWAYS PROGRESSED TO MUCH MORE THAN THAT.
As I said, you need to mix a bit more with social drinkers. 3 in 24 hours is nothing to worry about at all. Many people can be at this level without it being a problem.
