    Mostly Without

    After a history of heavy drinking and drug use starting out at a young-ish age(15...I've heard people start as soon as 8, which is why I say young-ish) and the complications it eventually led up too, I can definitely live without either. That is not to say, that at the moment-I...

    I Don't Like The Taste Of Alcohol

    I still do not understand why people love alcohol so much. I am not being judgmental, but everytime I drink alcohol, I cannot stand the bitterness of it. Even my friend said it was very light, for me just to drink a glass of something bitter brings nothing enjoyable. I even think...

    Lose The Booze

    Since I've been on antidepressants I accepted that they impacted my sexual sensitivity. My feeling was it was a reasonable price to pay for the steadiness they provided my daily life. I'd rather be able to deal with any problems that arise with those I love without falling off a...

    Never Experienced The Attraction
