Today I thought I’d share with you a little revelation. I have never drunk alcohol. Not a single drop. No beer. No cider. No shots. No wine. Nothing.
Now that’s not something you usually here from a 20year old is it? But I’m alright with that. I’m not fussed. That’s not a problem for me. The problems come only when people ask me why.
I’m stumped. I don’t know what to say. The truth? I’m not so sure. I know that I’m an advocate for speaking honesty and openly, but I just can’t on this.
You see, the truth is that I’m a little scared of what it might do to me. Every week we read reports on the effects of drinking, alcoholism and suicides. I can see how some people change after a drink and I don’t want to be like that. So I refrain from it completely.
I’ve got an addictive personality. Once my mind decides upon an idea I am obsessed with that very thought for days at a time. Everyday I am fighting for control. I fear that if I were to drink I would one day lose that battle.
If there are any other teetotallers out there reading this I’d love to hear your stories! Perhaps we could go out for a drink one day? 😉
