I'm just as fun sober. I swear I am!
I don't drink.
Let me clarify that. I don't drink very often. I'll be generous and say........6 times a year. In comparison to some, that is never.
It is my choice.
I don't drink because I don't really enjoy the taste of anything I have ever tried. Yes, that includes wine.
I don't drink because back when I was younger I had a few horrible! experiences that I (don't) remember all too well and never want to relive.
I don't drink because I personally don't like the loss of control - the feeling that I not only look like an idiot, but that I probably sound like one, too.
I don't drink because I don't like the empty calories.
I don't drink because I can have just as much fun sober.
I don't drink because I'd rather drive myself and my friends home and avoid atrociously priced cab rides.
I don't drink because I like to remember the good times, and not forget entire chunks of time.
I don't drink because I don't want to have to say sorry for my behaviour tomorrow.
I don't drink because I choose to spend my money elsewhere.
I don't drink because I really don't like the loss of energy and time the next day.
And I don't drink because I have lived with more than one alcoholic and what I have seen kinda scares me.
Do I care if you drink? Absolutely not. Have at 'er, as they say. Fill yer boots!
Keep it fun, keep smiling, keep upright as long as possible.
I will dance with you, laugh with you, laugh at you, go get late night food with you, drive you home afterwards, and meet you for brunch in the morning. Hell, I'd even clean up after you if you puked! I do not care if you drink. It is your choice.
If you are a jerky belligerent drunk though? Consider yourself ditched. Pronto.
If you are upset with me because I am not drinking right alongside you, well that says more about you than it does about me, doesn't it?
Me? I'd rather stay sober. Or maybe smoke a little pot from time to time and make friends with a Mars bar and some chips while laughing till my face hurts.
I do things my way, you do things yours, okay?
Have an awesome day!
