Drinking problem

I’m not much of a drinker any more. I used to be… just ask my sorority sisters. We used to drink the night away. There are stories I cannot tell the kids – they would use them against me someday.

Not too long ago I got a hankerin’ for a beer (for those of you that don’t speak Southernese, that means a BIG craving). Carl and I bought a six pack of Miller Genuine Draft - the stuff we were guzzling when we met.

The first couple of sips were so. damn. good! Ice cold. Burning sensation down my throat. The warm fuzzy feeling when then alcohol entered my bloodstream. It hit the spot.

After about ½ of the bottle, though, it turned nasty. I couldn’t take it any more. I gave the rest to Carl and made myself a Bloody Mary.

Ladies and Gentlemen, let me tell you. I haven’t gotten that tipsy in a LONG time. I wasn’t drunk…

Well, yeah. I was.

On one Bloody Mary. One! Can you say cheap date?

Believe me, hubby wishes that I were such a cheap date! One of the reasons that I don't drink is that I break the bank when I do.
Seriously, at my cousins wedding last year, I drank ALL of the gin. Me. By myself. Hubby drank almost all of the whiskey...and vodka. Ourselves. don't know what everyone else drank...I haven't been drinking since..That was A year ago last month...
Did you have a good time?

I didn’t even know Marni drank in college until I saw her sober one day.

Marni said...

I can only make it through a half a beer too.

I don't want to talk about it. That's all I'm saying.

I so agree with you. Life used to be fun, drinking , hanging out. I decided a few weeks ago I wanted something good so I bought a 6 pack of smirnoff and drank one. I drank another one about 3 days later. I didn't get drunk but I could tell not to drink a second one or I would be and my kids are both driving now so I preach NO ALCOHOL to them continually.
