Hiya everyone! About a year ago, give or take a few months, I wrote a blog post on how I’m not alcohol’s biggest fan and that I don’t really like the drinking culture of getting smashed every weekend. I guess this blog post is an “update” post, if you will, about my opinion on alcohol.
It’s changed a lot. If you follow me on literally any social media, I’m sure you are aware of the amount of times I constantly make a fool of myself hahaha so this is probably no news for you.
The reason why it’s changed? Honestly, I’ve not a clue.
It’s not like I go out twenty-four seven because I don’t. I’d be lying if I also went out every weekend because again I don’t. As I’m writing this post, I went out literally yesterday but I cannot
I realised that my fear of alcohol was heavily induced with my anxiety. Any relation to alcohol set my anxiety off and maybe that’s why I can tolerate it now. I was scared of feeling out of control if I got smashed or whatever but honestly, that was probably because I had no clue what my limits were.
To a degree, I don’t think I do either. I’m still guessing. I’ve not got to any point of being smashed where I’m vomiting left right and centre. I’ve never actually threw up from alcohol and I’ve never had a hangover either. So maybe my alcohol tolerance is really high or I just don’t actually drink that much as what the standard stereotype of teenagers do.
I wouldn’t say my relationship with alcohol is perfect. I definitely don’t drink for good reasons sometimes. I drink to forget, to give me confidence to do things I wouldn’t do sober – all things pretty much.
Let me know if your relationship has ever changed with alcohol?! I’m interested!
