I do drink, but only relatively moderately lol.

At the beginning of the year I stopped for 5 months, well actually I stopped the day after my 21st (24th December), but then got out of control at a Pool team end of season party thing but surprisingly still managed to outdrink most of them, we were carrying people out the door to taxis and stuff lol. But now I like to have a couple, I mean 4 pints is the most I'll have most of the time I go out, with 2-3 being the average sort of number but I can just as well go out and drink nothing but water, red bull or J2O's.

Occasionally there are the days where I'll completely throw my discipline out of the window and end up getting shitfaced on a Friday oir Saturday night. It's happened the last 2 weekends, last weekend was our camp's "christmas party" and everyone was drinking for fun so I thought why not, didn't manage to get home till 7.30am and finished drinking at 7.00am.

The main reason I don't like drinking is I can lose control over myself once I go so far but also I hate the hangovers the next day.

haha, and it's good stuff too. Heineken advertises for us, so they sometimes provide cases. And we don't get off until 6, so there's a good three hours of no work being done on Fridays.

As for a job, we're looking for marketing interns...

Causes too many problems. I used to be a heavy drinker but after a couple OWI's and the loss of license and fines I don't drink anymore. I find it a lot funner to laugh at other people being jackasses than wake up really hungover having people tell me about all the stupid things I did the night before. And not going to jail all the time helps too.

I am happy with the state of mind I'm usually in, so I have no desire to forceably change it with a substance. I don't even drink coffee/energy drinks or take painkillers unless it's absolutely necessary, guess I'm just a purist.
Wow..this is..exactly..what I feel, it's kind of scary.

It's fun. It's really, really fun, and it makes me do stuff I wouldn't normally. Like, I'm not running around downtown naked, I'm just totally relaxed and talking my head off. The only bad thing, other than being an absuive alcoholic, is that I eat a bunch of shit while I drink. I also smoke cigs, though I do that anyway.

I'm a skinny dude, so I don't mind the binge eating that much.

I really don't drink that much. Like, I really, really don't.
