    The man says it helps him relax and he feels more at ease and like himself. Also helps him with his creative pursuits.

    You should go over to INTPc and explain it all to them.

    They'll be grateful.

    I lack the MBTI type to give a damn about INTPc.

    I used alcohol for all kinds of reasons, but never to forget.

    I've been sober for years now, I quit using any mentally altering substances when I was 21. Before that, I've used in order to feel miserable and bad about myself. In order to feel alive and angry. In order to feel human. A very misformed human. But I never wanted to forget, anything. Not a single thing ever.

    I did not drink to escape. I drank to experience. Because my sober self was all in control. Had it all figured out. But I didn't want things to be that easy. I wanted to feel pain about what I had experienced. I didn't want to feel ok with it.

    And I was young. When you're young, you're influenced by those around you. Rolemodels and whatnot. And they way I dealt with things, wasn't how others dealt with things. Made me feel alien, different. Alcohol made me act more like those around me. Anger, pain, emotional. All which seems so important to other people. Like it's important in judging how good you are as a human being. Without feeling pain, how can you tell right from wrong? It's logical that right can't be measured, if you don't know what wrong really is, and it seemed that wrong wasn't to me what it was to others. And I wanted to feel more like they do.. So, I didn't want to feel right, because feeling right would be wrong in the eyes around me. So I did whatever I could to feel wrong about it. Alcohol made me do that.

    Anyhow, I grew up, snapped out of it. I became self aware, egotistical and confident. And drinking wasn't an option anymore. Just like that I gave up on it, and felt better ever since.

    Anyways, I don't think an INTP can really escape anything. And I doubt there are INTP's that don't realize that. There may be a thousand different reasons for INTP's to use substances. But trying to escape ain't one of them.
    Usually I'm with you on a lot of things, but not this one. My life is essentially defined by escapism. It's what nearly all my hobbies have in common. Some people use drugs. I use games, books, alternative theories on life, movies, or whatever.

    I think you're not escaping, you're just exploring and expanding, finding more meaning, in ways you enjoy yourself with. Escaping, in the sense that alcohol/substances would do it. Is to completely stop rationalizing. Stop thinking alltogether whenever possible. Completely dissassociating yourself from life as you know it, that's escapism. That's not what you're doing. Like I said, I don't think an INTP can do it. Ti would be such a nagfest if you tried.

    But if you are (which I don't believe), can you honestly say that is working out for you?

    Most of my hobbies have no creative element [a fact I've realized quite recently, which causes me considerable distress and thus my current quest to find one that does] and serve to simply remove my awareness from the current manifestation of my life. Like you, it's all figured out. I have my job. I have my girl. The ring, the house, the promotions, the whippersnappers will follow. And these are certain things that I definitely wanted and do want. But it's nearly impossible to participate in every conceivable path and reality I've ever imagined for myself, and I use these things to escape into the ones I wanted, but cannot actualize.

    I think everybody needs a little escapism. I'm not happy with one path, I want to live all possible ones, and escapism allows me to do that.

    i definitely dont smoke to escape, weed just simply doesent work that way for me. usually i start to think more things that are bothering me when im high(if there are some at the moment), but weed helps me to use lower functions well so i can think from bit different perspective and that way find answers to questions that are bothering me.

    alcohol doesent help me escape either, if there is something bothering me and im drinking i just start to feel that those things are even more overwhelming, but i also get distracted from them easily. if i drink so much that i get nasty hang over it can feel like those things are more overwhelming for two days after drinking.

    These are real accounts! At some point, I'd like the *permission to screw you* to subside, or to not have to grab you and rape you every time.
    But I've also never dated an INTP for more than a few months at a time, so maybe I just wasn't witness to the full INTP sexual glory.
