A week where I go a day without drinking is cause for celebration. Guess how I celebrate. It's to the point where it takes me three hours to sleep if I'm sober. I've been doing this so long that I know not to drunk post. You guys are noobs, childishly overeager to show off your pubes. And why am I replying? I don't think it's cool. It's really just pathetic, mostly on my part, because I know better. It's certainly nothing to be proud of, but the more honest and open I am about it, the better it is for me.
I do this in good fun. I am a nerd attached to my comp. Drinking tends to take away good judgement and scruples, which are generally acted out in the drinkers current environment. Seeing as my comp is one of my normal environments (as pathetic as it may be) that's one of the places such actions go. But don't think I don't know what its like to have an alchohol problem. My last bf, things went wrong. I lived in TX with him. His immaturity came out, he constantly needed me to bail him out of situations, usually monetarily. (Like needing gas money after he spent the day playing golf.) I was stranded in TX, away from my family and friends, not being able to get ahead in life because of him, not being able to save any money to leave. So everyday, I holed myself up in the office with a bottle of rum. The only times I was ever sober was at work. Only because it was my only chance to try and get even the slightest bit ahead in any part of my life. Luckily, in my drunken ramblings, I got back in touch with the guy I'm with now who took me out of that. I never want to go back to that again. Which is why I'm ok with harmless (though heavy) weekend drinking with the occasional during week drunk fests and one time drinking contests, but not with lifestyle challenges. You want the title of "the org drunk," you can have it. If it means going through what I went through 2 or 3 years ago, then I don't want it. (Not that I cared anyway. This was just all in good fun.)
