i've been pondering giving up drinking here and there.
i've just noticed how good i feel when i dont and how my friends who dont really drink are all in much better shape in body and mind (though none of them are very social). i hate ruining the next day because i drink too much the night before and sometimes didn't even do anything really that special while drinking. its tough though when you tell yourself "just one beer" before going out because it never happens. you (or at least i) always end up staying out way too late and getting way too wasted. spending too much money, saying/doing stupid things, getting no sleep, being hungover etc.
though i wouldnt say i have a drinking problem. i'd still like to one day do away with it completely one day. seems like every few days there is another persons birthday to celebrate, another show to go to, another friend in from out of town, etc that always results in me going out/getting wasted.
wont lie though. drinking can be awesome.
