and, on another note, i think i'm going to quit drinking.

well, i don't want to say 'quit drinking', because if i ever decide to have a beer at a bar or a glass of wine, i don't want people to look askew at me and shake their head as if i fell off that proverbial wagon.

i'm not an alcoholic.

i'm just sick of dealing with the aftereffects of drinking.

WHY I DON'T WANT TO DRINK ANYMORE:

costs tons of money i don't have, free drinks aside
tastes like patooey
screws with my blood sugar BIG time
dehydrates the hell out of me and makes me feel cucky the next day
makes my breath smell like i liked a toilet at wal*mart
has a zillion empty calories (being a rock star in training, weight is an issue)
generally surrounds me with a lillion idiotic people who live for drinking or live for happy hour or live for partying and who's breath revels mine
i'm MUCH more clear headed (duh)
being out with my friends the last few times, when i haven't drank, i haven't wanted to, and felt fine.

DOWN FALLS OF STOPPING DRINKING:

being designated driver - A LOT
having to find other more interesting people to hang out with that don't live for beer and shots

so, that's it, in a nutshell, folks. *looks at calendar* okay, i'm going to say that Friday, October 11, 2002, was the last time i've had a drink.

"Cigarettes and Alcohol" (N. Gallagher)
I know what you mean because I've made the same decision/done the same thing. I'll have wine if my friends have it at a party or if I'm invited out I'll have a beer. However I have no desire to just sit and drink. I guess it kinda bores me and the empty calories thing is a factor.

*nod* i'm gonna see how long i can go without any alcohol at all, and watch the postive benefits to my body. since i'm having problems with my bloodsugar again, i'm sure it will help THAT ;)

maybe, i'm growing up. lol.

Re:
lol - i drank on the cruise... not like a fish, unless you count ensenada, where i ended up sick as a dog until i took a nap (not violent sicky sicky, just ooey sicky)

freaking Carnival's drinks had gone up on an average of about $1.50 a freeping drink from last year... i noticed other ways that they were becoming chincier on their services, too.

It has been easier for me not to drink because Mike doesn't like to drink much and we don't go out to bars hardly ever.
Over all I don't like to get drunk except when I'm in that mood and I don't want to think about what I really did the night before. *smiles* *sweet voice* Oh I'm to innocent it must been the alcohol. hehehe
BUT on the cruise I'm going to drink because I don't have to worry about driving so I'm taking advantage of it.

Re:
*nod* i figured that drinking on the cruise was alright, and i feel that other than ensenada, i did it in moderation for the most part.

also, saying that my last drink was halloween of 2002 is a lot easier than trying to remember october 11th.
