Watch out though, that's how most addictions start: someone using a substance for a purpose or a change it makes, as opposed to just for recreation. If you can do it with the alcohol, you can do it without.

BTW, you're never as cool, funny, or as smart as you think you are when you're drunk.

I've been doing it without alcohol for five days now, and I intend to keep it that way -- I'll drink a little alcohol here and there, but it will be for recreational purposes only.  The alcohol just showed me that I *could* do it. 

I hit a pretty good point in my drinking on Thursday, I think -- drunk enough to be a little unsteady on my feet, but not so drunk that I was obnoxious -- I was still choosing my words with care, just a little more slowly.

It used to be when I ate any kind of multi colored candy (M&Ms, Skittles, Starburst) I felt compelled to have one of each color saved for last.  Not sure why, maybe it my weird sense of "fairness" or something.

Last night, I got more drunk than I've ever been before in my life (6 beers, three Irish Car Bombs, and what my friends refer to as a Chocolate Cake Shot drank over the course of about 45 minutes, as opposed to my usual slow enjoyment of alcoholic beverages). 

I had trouble standing (I'm sure I'll get a lot of "lightweight" comments from more experienced drinkers) but had no difficulty, other than a slight slurring of speech, in pontificating on the importance of beer to the Inca people of Peru.  I think there were other topics I was able to address eruditely in my tipsy state, but I don't remember what they are right now.

This event has proven life-changing for me.  I've always been a very timid little worrywart, too paralyzed by concerns about potential risks to ever let go and *do* things.  I never took a chance if I wasn't 100% certain I'd come out on top. 

The amount I had to drink took away some of those inhibitions while still leaving me fairly well in charge of my mental facilities.  The mask that I always cover my true feelings with dropped to the ground and shattered, and I felt FREE.  I chatted up girls I never would have had the nerve to do more than glance at before, I expressed myself honestly instead of couching my meaning in equivocation and softened words...and I realized how good it felt to be that FREE. 

I realized, in the aftermath of that night, that I only have so much time on this earth.  If I'm going to squander that time being paralyzed by potential risk, then what's the point? It's time to enjoy myself -- do new things -- take chances -- be spontaneous -- in short, LIVE.  Wagner wrote, "The Free Man must create himself" and I'm damn overdue. 

Watch out though, that's how most addictions start: someone using a substance for a purpose or a change it makes, as opposed to just for recreation. If you can do it with the alcohol, you can do it without.

BTW, you're never as cool, funny, or as smart as you think you are when you're drunk.

I second Ghouk's warning, even though I'm sure you have it under control.

I remember when I was a freshman in college, a friend of mine explaining that alcohol made you "more who you really are" because it takes away your inhibitions.

My response was, "Wait, why aren't my inhibitions a valid part of who I am?"

When I was young I did some really stupid things while I was drunk.  When everyone's making merciless fun of you the next day because you hooked up with a girl widely known as "the wildebeest", you'll realize that sometimes inhibitions may be there for a dang good reason.   Wink

Thanks for the vote of confidence, Rev.  I agree; some inhibitions are good to have, and I'm not thinking of completely divesting myself of inhibitions.  Thing is, I've always been too inhibited. 

I'm a senior in college right now; this is my last semester.  This was the first time I've been truly inebriated.  I was teetotal until I turned 21; even then I didn't have my first taste of alcohol until almost three months after my birthday.  Until this past Thursday, a night of heavy drinking for me was two beers over the course of four hours.  I didn't want to even come close to being in a situation where I wasn't in complete control of myself. 

For now, I'm cutting inhibitions in the little ways.  I didn't grow up in a house where eating vegetables was the norm.  My mother hates eating vegetables because of memories of being forced to eat them as a child, so she never allowed 90% of edible vegetables on the table.  To this day, I'm hesitant to eat a lot of greens because of the horror stories I was told about them growing up.  I ate asparagus for the first time on Friday.  That, to me, is a step forward towards "New Me."  It's certainly not a big risk, or even possibly a risk at all.  But it's a refusal to avoid something just because it's something I hadn't done before. 

As an aside, a couple months back my parents, and the parents of the girl I was dating at the time, treated us to dinner at a nice steakhouse not far from campus.  I ordered a glass of Spaten, a decent German beer I've developed a taste for, to compliment my steak, and my mother freaked out that I was drinking. 

Come to think of it, it seems like a lot of my neuroses stem from issues with my mother...

I was quite the opposite, i had the final solution going on. I would eliminate each color one by one, always picking the same colors that would go first and the same that would go last.

Nothing has changed, I still do that even with fruit loops.

When I eat cereal with marshmallows (Lucky Charms, Frankenberry) I invariably eat the cereal first and save the marshmallows for last. I do the same thing with the crunchberries in Cap'n Crunch with Crunchberries.

I think it's a OCD thing.

No no no - it's terribly important that you have one or two crunch berries in every spoonful of regular bits.  It must be distributed evenly like that for the proper flavor balance to be realized  TeddyR

Hold it now and watch the hoodwink
As I make you stop, think
You'll think you're looking at aquaman
I summon fish to the dish, although I like the chalet swiss
I like the sushi cause its never touched a frying pan
Hot like wasabe when I bust rhymes
Big like leann rimes
Because I'm all about value
Bert kaempferts got the mad hits
You try to match wits
You try to hold me but I bust through
Gonna make a break and take a fake
I'd like a stinkin' achin' shake
I like vanilla, its the finest of the flavours
Gotta see the show, cause then you'll know
The vertigo is gonna grow
Cause its so dangerous, youll have to sign a waiver

What would you do if you woke up one morning and discovered that, somehow, you'd become a cyclops? Just one big eye in the middle of your face.  Would you go on a rampage?

Dude, I used to do that too!  Probably the marshmallows were the best part!

Asparagus makes one's pee stink. I wonder what made nature decide that was necessary.
