I drink, occasionally. I’m sure many other people do.
However, how I drink is determined by social interactions. If there was no
inclination by anyone else I would never drink. I’m sure this sounds like
peer pressure – maybe it is.
But there is one thing I realized this afternoon coming home from a hectic day,
and zipping directly back out into the cold to lift weights.
I will never use alcohol as a weekday tranquilizer. This is a line in the sand
for me. At no point will I ever drink as a “calming agent” to “unwind” or
take a load off. So many people do it, and I understand exactly why, but
I cannot – I will not do it.
So I drink coffee instead – ha ha
