“Alcohol is not in my vodkabulary. However, I looked it up on whiskeypedia and learned if you drink too much of it, it’s likely tequilya.”
I had so much alcohol last year. If I were to collect all the bottles of wine, ciders and vodka that I went through I would be embarrassed for myself. You see, I have a love looove relationship with alcohol, something about it just makes me feel better. After a few glasses my spirit is lifted and I can take on the world again. Unfortunately that relationship has come to an end. I spent the entire Easter break sober and it was NOT by choice.
I’ve stopped drinking for medical reasons. Don’t think I didn’t try to have a glass or two over the weekend. I did; but two sips into a glass of wine I knew this was a bad idea and I threw it out, I couldn’t stomach it. Last night with a splitting headache I attempted a bit of vodka which never happened because soon after mixing the drink I was sure going to throw up. My heart is breaking, what we had was unique, alcohol has never let me down, why is it doing this to me? I thought we were in love, I thought we had great chemistry, I thought we were in this together forever but here I am, alone with no one to turn to. What the heck am I going to do with myself on weekends? What do sober people do with their time. Surely there must be more to life than drinking fruit juice?
Let me take you a walk down memory lane…
Vodka+Berry Blaze/ Berry Nice/ Red Grape Juice + Ice
If I wanted to have the best time of my life this was my drink of choice. The only problem with vodka is that it will take you from 0 straight to 100. There’s no in-between. However, I only have this drink from the comfort of my home or when I’m around friends I completely trust, black outs are real. The hangover was from out of this world if I had Russian Bear but Skyy and Absolut never gave me such problems.
White wine made me feel relaxed, I could have a few glasses(or the bottle) while reading a good book or watching a feel good movie.
Rose isn’t all that, I only had it when I couldn’t find anything else.
Red wine made me so freaking horny! Oh, and the confessions, I would start telling my friend about all the naughty things I used to get up to. He used to look forward to those messages, it’s a pity it’s all over. Red wine had a bitter taste and gave me a headache the next day so I tried to have it moderation.
Give me Hunters Dry or Hunters Edge and you would have made my day. The perfect drink to have when chilling out or going for a road trip. It had zero effect, just felt like I was having a nice cold drink. No hangover too.
You see. This time around I know for a fact that I won’t be drinking again and it’s hurting me so badly I don’t even know how I’m going to manage. Ideas of how to still enjoy this life thing sober are sincerely welcome, help me.
Dear alcohol, it’s really not you, it’s me…
