I hardly find myself drinking anymore.
Used to love the bar scene a lot. I was never really one to drink at home. When I drank it was always when I was going out. Wasted a lot of money doing that, but always looked at drinking at home being pretty depressing.
Weed is just so much better. It's not even up for discussion it just is. Thank God for places like Colorado. Everyone in Breckenridge was just so damn happy and friendly when I was there 3 wks ago.
Now I can't stand going out to bars unless it's for an occasion or something. Little things now seem to piss me off being out at bars and prob wouldn't have done so 5-6yrs ago. Guess it's just me getting older. I've taken up smoking though I guess as a replacement. Do that just about nightly unless there's something going on. There's nothing better than watching late night TV or a movie w/ a little green. Get a large chocolate shake from Sonic and it's even better. Much better than drinking beer IMO.
Another thing I noticed is that I can't drink for shit anymore. Yeah I know....PUSSY..right? Well it's kinda true. I can't..just don't have the booze tolerance flying skyrocket high these days. Hangovers last a hell of a lot longer...used to be a few hours the next morning or at worst into the afternoon. Now they're damn near 2 full entire days, and the 3rd day is just an exhaustion day, from my body recovering from the last 2 days. So they're bad now. Which if there's any deterrent that's better its you're own body telling your dumbass to stop it. Used to be able to go out and get hammered Wed thru Sat night and then drink all day Saturdays and Sundays during football games. and I'd be fine Monday. Now if I get drunk...not hammered but just drunk, I'll feel like death the next entire day and into the next.
