Maybe we can keep this thread insightful, informative and education. I will do my utmost…… A question I’ve so often pondered. I, myself, drink socially….sometimes I go months without a drink. But I notice my friends who treat alcohol like a god. It’s the centerpiece of the conversation before the conversation gets started. Based on personal observation, I gather there are many who look forward to any excuse to drink, because they are anxious about life, worried. I have so many friends who glamorize drinking. To me, it dulls the senses. Eases the pain. But it’s nothing to glamorize. The problems are still present once you sober up. I am not being judgmental. Indeed, so many are dealing with hardships and pain. Their family members are sick or they’re experiencing an economic hardship. It seems bourbon, vodka and whiskey have become a solace for so many. It’s all that is spoken about. I go to a social gathering and it’s Jell-O shots and try this liquor. And again, I don’t judge. I just ask why so many are looking to alcohol to find their happiness. Or so it seems.
