Mu drinking problem has hit some awesome points recently. It's not really a secret that I have one, but as I'm beginning to spiral back out of control, I've decided it's about time to get it under control. FYI, I'm not an alcoholic, I'm a binge drinker. I don't feel the need to drink all the time (although I usually drink when I have a problem or I'm bored, so it happens more frequently), but when I drink, I drink to complete excess. I don't have an off switch until I'm like a couple drinks away from being completely obliterated. Which has caused some awesome trends. My tolerance, coupled with my fatitude, is the highest it has ever been, which means the amount of alcohol I need to consume before I feel it is crazy high, which leads to brutal hangovers (like today's).
So, I'm basically quitting drinking for a while. I want to drop my tolerance, feel ok about myself more, and spend less money (especially because I don't have a job). Now, I don't want to completely quit, but my goal is to not get drunk for a month. I like the taste of beer. I like having drinks with my friends. So I'm limiting my consumption to two or three beers an outing for the next month. It seems very doable. I just have to have the willpower to do so.
