      Are you talking about going to loud parties with music? If so, the answer would be a "no, not anymore".

      I was never the sort of person to drink and party, especially turned off by it when a friend's birthday party at a bar was so loud, you couldn't hear each others voices even if you shouted as loud as you could.

      possible TMJ, came on after severe cold and chest infection,
      I did a bit (a lot) in my later teens and early twenties, then life took over haha when you say “drink outside” do you mean a party? If so I’d advise just to be careful and make sure your ears are plugged with noise reducing ear plugs. It’s all about finding a balance and if you think it’s too loud or the noise is making you uncomfortable I personally wouldn’t take a chance in making your T worse

      Just be sensible and moderation with drinking as it effects your brain and mood and if on antidepressants the next day you could feel down and the drink could make you do things like have music loud and with out thinking.
      A few drinks and reduction plugs and have a lovely break .

      Just be aware that alcohol intoxicates + dehydrates not only a brain but also your auditory system and thus making it more vulnerable to damage.

      I drink, a hangover and getting little sleep can temporary spike tinnitus. Jiri is correct about the auditory system. What I would do is drink a couple glasses of water while drinking. If the auditory system gets compromised by dehydration then I would think water will lesson the effects of alcohol dehydration.

      It is my understanding that heroin is the drug you have got to try if you want to experience Pure Euphoria.

      I highly suggest that you stay away from drinking. It can annoy your tinnitus and you are already very anxious and don't need more issues....

      I have been to loud parties after developing Tinnitus. Molded earplugs are great for that.

      I don't have the habit of drinking but from time to time yes, why not?

      Why?

      One time, I got lucky and somehow I got upgraded to fly in the first class. I had always been curios about wines being described using some exotic terms. The description of the wines in the first class included those cool-sounding terms. I asked for a glass of some wine that had a description that I found to be intriguing. It tasted exactly like all other wines I had ever tasted - sour and nasty. I made the mistake of finishing my glass of wine, and then I made a second mistake of asking for a second glass of a different wine that had a completely different cool description. The wine in the second glass had the exact same taste - as sour and as nasty as the first one. I kept drinking it trying to see whether I would be able to taste what I was supposed to be tasting if one were to believe the description. Now I know that those descriptions are a joke.

      The worst part is that soon after I finished the second glass, I felt like I had been poisoned. At that time, dinner was served in the first class. The food was incredible, but unfortunately I couldn't enjoy it - I was feeling a mixture of a feeling like the one you get when you have a high fever during a flu, and the nausea feeling you get when you are experiencing food poisoning. By the time I felt better, the flight was almost over. Drinking those two glasses of wine had completely ruined my experience of flying in the first class...

      Food and wine will never taste ok on a plane. The cabin pressure and low air humidity make things taste different.

      I don't party... but I do drink. In the north of France beer is a kind of religion :LOL:
      Plus, I am blessed to live in the country of the wine. And I like it too, so that's great :D

      Having 1 or 2 drinks per week is not bad , getting drunk and loud music can be bad. Use you discretion. Be smart about it . Can’t stop living. By all mean protect your ears from further damage. Carry you filter earplugs.

      Getting drunk and getting yourself near speakers can be dangerous yes, this does not mean you can't get drunk or have fun in a way YOU like.
      If you like to drink a lot do so. Just be careful that you still remain clever enough to protect yourself from sound. But don't live life with a constant handbrake.
      If you intend on getting completely wasted, as a lot of people did here while they were students, try to do it only after you've been to the party, so you can't make any mistakes for instance.

      A lot of people damaged their hearing by drinking too much and not being aware of the noise around them. Next to that it's possible that drinking in loud noise can make it even worse.

      But in my opinion you don't have to be super scared of drinking, just remain clever and know your limits, or at least that you are safe.

      Advice like drinking a only few things a week is overdoing it in my opinion, it might be healthier, but I think it's not relevant for his question or life at the moment.
