You guys remember my post about drugs right?
Here’s a little more concerning alcohol.
It’s been two months since I’ve stopped drinking alcohol. I still drink alcoholic beverages from time to time but in general it is just to taste the drink. I’ll take a sip of some fine wine or some expensive whiskey anytime. But not a whole drink. Also, I decided to not spend any money on alcohol whatsoever. People around me (roommates and friends mostly) are for the most heavy drinkers. And they all encourage me to start drinking again. Last weekend they even convinced me to drink a shitload of beer (3 fucking liters) and in exchange I wouldn’t pay for anything that day (I’m broke).So I went with it. I was smashed and did stupid things. Sure it was fun and all, but I am not myself when I was in that state. That is not the me inside.
That person which we become when we are under the effects of drugs is a being with a broken will, incapable of mastering his compulsions and unable to reason correctly. The impaired reasoning makes us do things that sober we wouldn’t. They call it “losing your inhibitions”, meaning that, sober, I prevent myself from doing things that I want to do because of social pressure or shit like that. That is not the case. I call it doing stupid shit because you can’t reason well enough to differentiate bad from good ideas.
For my roomies: If you think that what I did that night was part of my true “inhibited” desires, I take that as an insult, and you should apologize, and bring me cookies and/or chocolate as an apology offering.
