    I drink abit too much

    for my age but who cares ?! Who cares if one day i drink too much and don't wake up, no one would give a crap. It takes away memories and replace them with new ones. But hey, life's short, u gotta live it.

    A Drink Will Make Me Feel Better

    How often have I told myself this one?  If I could keep my drinking to the pleasureable one or two I envisage before I start, then maybe it would be ok.  But it never is...I have one, then I have another, then I want another, then I drink till I am very drunk and fall...

    That'S Me

    I drink anywhere from six to 10 beers a per night. It started when I was in college, and abusing Ritalin. That drug and alcohol mix together very well, and I would go on Benders during which I'd stay awake for literally days on end. Well, I'm not that bad now, but I still need...

    Red Wine

    Every night.....  Religiously, I drink about 2 glasses.  On occassion, I might have three.  I've been told it's drinking in "excess." Perhaps I do drink a bit too much, though I never feel it.......

    That's the problem with drinking,

    I thought, as I poured myself a drink. If something bad happens you drink in an attempt to forget; if something good happens you drink in order to celebrate; and if nothing happens you drink to make something happen.
