I gave up drinking almost 40 years ago. Hearing Weekend forecast sewing with a chance of drinking and his tweeting about the BIG Nuclear button makes me stop and think. It’s really sasd that we Americans put up with this childish behavior from our President of the USA. Our President is addicted to TV and to reaction to his reactions for on commputer’s. Looks like he has a hard time telling fact between fantacies..
I drink only a few times a year, and then it isn’t usually very much . I don’t drink because I hate hangovers, and I can get one after only one drink. I drank tea at our staff party. I’m naturally talkative enough that I don’t need a social lubricant.
I am not against drinking alcohol, although Weekend forecast and I have chosen not to drink. It does not make us better than anyone else, it was just a personal choice for us. I often feel people think we are weird for that choice, but it doesn’t bother me and I know those who struggle with sobriety are grateful to be with people where there is no pressure to drink.I have a good friend who made her 25 year mark in AA this year and she is such a joyful, grateful, giving individual. She does not take her life for granted and getting sober changed her life.
I’ve chosen not to drink for months a time or two myself. I thought I was making healthy choices for me, but I learned later that some people took issue with it and complained about how I was somehow inconveniencing them.Don’t make people feel shitty about choosing not to drink for any reason. You are the asshole in this scenario, and if I am present I will personally get in your face about it.
