    Writing While Drinking...

    I'm a college student. Financial aid screwed me over, and I had a really BAD day and pretty much all of last week was pretty rough too.  No excuse to go crazy, but damn sure a good excuse to have a drink.  So, here I am, drinking alone, right now.  I'm writing essays for my...

    Keep finding myself drinking alone.

    And loving every second of it. It seems the less I care the better I feel.

    And maybe it's the alcohol talking

    but I am feeling really insecure right now. I have been feeling kind of depressed for the last few days. I don't think anyone has noticed fortunately. I hate being perceived as weak at all and that's what being a man and being insecure is to me. Weak. **** that!! I'm awesome!!

    Listening to NIghtwish.

    <3333333333333 I wish I can see them live one day. My name is MIriam and I'm 24, turning 25 this year, slightly drunk at the moment. I'm a complete loner and I suck at life. <333333

    I know I shouldn't but I can't smoke

    or anything else so tonight I am drinking. I feel like I dont have anyone to call or talk to about anything. My friend guy is way too busy for me the past week. My 2 siblings not talking to me (long story write about it later). Im about to get faded and hopefully fall asleep...

    I Am Drowning My Sorrows

    Yep. I am by myself tonight. Instead of crying - I am drinking, until I fall asleep. Hubby and son are not here. I just want the world to melt away.  I wish I could silently melt away and disappear with it .....

    I have pushed everyone away.

    .. No one knows the hurt I feel. Don't want to burden anyone. So I make myself a cocktail and wish I feel nothing. Is it so wrong to push people away when in reality u want them to see how much u hurt???? Am lost completely lost... And am here

    Three years ago tonight was supposed to be the happiest day of my life. I drank and I danced and I loved every minute of it. Tonight I sit alone, a sad but true norm in my present situation. As the ice cold Smirnoff Ice teases over my tongue I take a heavy sigh. Cheers to three...

    I never understood why people think drinking

    alone us bad although I believe it's because of the stereotype that when someone is drinking alone they are in sorrow. When I drink alone its because I want some quiet time to myself and the only thing I want to get to know is my drink.smooth jazz in the background.perfect.

    And I'll feel better soon then I'll have to

    endure it all again tomorrow. I'm in a vicious never ending torturous cycle and slowly poisoning myself in the process.

    Creating energy as an introvert

    while drinking beer. And I feel a need to release. When people "hide" in their mind, they "put up walls". What they fail to realize most of the time is these walls aren't fully complete, or even connecting for that reason. I designed a construction in my mind for defense...

    Here We Go Again

    Tonight is Halloween, and my so called friends bailed to go to some lame local deathcore show. I hate it so I'm not wasting gas money to go, SO, I bought 2 .750s and a 6 pack, and a quarter of some good stuff. I have about 20 movies I need to catch up with and about double that...

    I don't drink much...

    hahaha Yeah, seriously! I'm a nervous person, when I drink, I calm down, my brain gets slower and I get numb. It's a good sensation depending on the drink. Today is Saturday night and I wish I could drink Jägermeister with draft beer, just two! It's delicious and great.

    I was desperate for a night out

    so I made my own. A band plays in a parking lot close to my house. From my front porch I can hear the music, sometimes it's OK, sometimes it isn't, but it is music so I will take it. I decided to buy myself a six pack, went for "not your father's root beer" and I am sitting...

    For The First Time Ever.

    Tonight, for the first time ever, I am in my room, wearing PJ's and drinking wine. By myself. On a week day. Admittedly, it's cheap wine. It's not very strong wine. But drinking alone isn't something I have ever done before, and it feels weird. It wouldn't worry me if I could...
