Greggie Posted April 24, 2010 Share Posted April 24, 2010 So here I am again. Lost my keys (both work and home), living room's a mess, my hair reeks of cigarettes, I'm wearing a club dress to WORK and any memory of the night before is minimal to non-existant, though I have been told quite a few interesting (embarrassing, horrible, dreadfull!) tidbits. I seriously cannot go on like this. It is not even the fact that I do foolish things when I drink because I genereally behave myself, at least to a certain degree; the problem is that I feel severely depressed and horribly anxious the day after and I feel like this every single time (regardless of the night's events, and whether or not I have been a silly girl or well-behaved). It is like I cannot handle alcohol mentally. Almost like the way people get after doing drugs when they "land". Except I have tried drugs and never experienced anything like that, but with alcohol, I'm one Whiskey shot away from wanting to do away with myself. Anyone else experience something like this? Anyways, I decided that although I have a good time when drinking, it is NOT worth this day-after depression. Unfortunately for me, I am in an environment where people go out A LOT. Every Sunday, on the clock. While others are praying, we are drinking. Don't know what the guy in the sky would have to say about that... But yes, I'm thinking perhaps I could continue going out (I love the dressing up bit and want of course to socialize with my friends) but try and stay sober through the night. (This will be HARD. Seriously, I make the decision to quit drinking EVERY TIME I've been out =P) Does anyone have similar experiences to share? Anyone given up alcohol, and is it difficult and does it feel limiting in terms of social life? Thank you in advance for your input =) Link to comment
