    I Am Allergic to Alcohol.

    A Bad One.

    When I drink alchohol I have a bad allergic reaction -- it sets off the phenomenon of craving.  I want MORE.  And I don't stop wanting more until I pass out.

    I think it serves more as a cover than a party but who knows. I can have fun with or without drugs and alcohol so pick your poison. It is more fun being sober though with friends.
