I Drink Alone

    It's been a pretty long time

    but I never go too long without craving a Jack and ginger to sip on. I suppose I wouldn't mind a shot of something that would just make me calm for a few hours. Ugh I have to get my head and body in the right place... Then I can let myself indulge in such comforts...

    Love Me Some Franzia!

    I'm not an alcoholic. Every alcoholic probably says that, but really - I'm not. I pay my bills. I have a decent job (school teacher). I take care of my house and family. I just like to drink. Everyday. I like the loose and easy feeling that alcohol gives me. I like that I...

    I drink alone. I do so all the time.

    To be perfectly honest, i prefer drinking alone to drinking in the presence of other people. I simply don't see what the issue is. It is a common belief that drinking alone is a sign of alcoholism.., but that belief is nonsensical. It is complete bullshit. The environment in...

    Sure do if your home

    and living by yourself, liquor is cheaper too because you buy the whole bottle and last for days months? who knows. But your not alone if your in the bar, the difference is separate tab! ^.^

    Yeaahhh With Nobody Else

    My girlfriend's out of town, so I'm drinking Jack Daniels. All day. Thinking about going for a run, but not sure if I'll make it. Probably **** around on the internet for a while then maybe do some drunk laundry. Or take a nap. No pressure 8)

    Starting tonight! I'm gonna go out by myself!

    I'll bring my mace, and my brain, and that's all I need! I hope there will be people there that don't find it weird that some random drunk girl tries to make conversation. We'll see. I'm gonna go get prettied up . Wish me luck on this night, and pray that I'll find a safe ride...

    It's relaxing. At night staring into the embers

    of a campfire or looking at the stars. Reflecting on the past and future. It can be a good time to get things in perspective.

    Why Did I Start?

    I am the product of an alcoholic mother. The memories of her staggering around, shouting abuse and making crude remarks, fill me with shame more than ten years after her passing. The last thing I ever wanted to be, was to be just like her. Maybe she is not to blame at all. Maybe...

    Some Days

    It's preferable to sit by myself, have a drink, and do just whatever the hell I feel like. When I'm out with others, a couple of drinks has me enjoying loud and somewhat crazy fun. Drinking alone, I tend to be more calm. I act on my inspiration; whereas, I was too lazy to before...

    If Someone Would Drink With Me, That'd Be Fine

    I don't drink alone out of principle, but I'm not going to let the fact that I am alone stop me from having a drink or two (or three).Of course I couldn't let this story go without pasting in a link to a great song.
