What is your reason? Why do you drink alcohol?
– Because you want to forget a bad experience
– To show off
– When we are teenagers we want to pretend we are adult.
– Because we want to overcome our shyness
– For tradition
– To imitate famous people
– Some people just enjoy a good wine.
Each drug has its reason and its consumers. Alcohol is a drug chosen by shy people.
Don’t you dare to talk with a girl? Don’t worry. Just drink a few beers and go ahead.
Don’t you want to go on the dance floor? A couple of whiskeys will make you dance like nobody is watching you.
Unfortunately, it is not a real solution. You can’t use it in the long term. You may die.
I Used To Get Drunk Because I Was Shy
I remember when I was 16 years old: I used to get drunk almost every weekend. I didn’t know who I was. I didn’t understand myself or the people around me.
For me, it was like being surrounded by people from another planet. I didn’t understand the basic social rules: how to talk with people; how to be funny; nice; charming.
Or even worse …
How to talk with girls?
That is why I used to get drunk; to overcome my shyness. I didn’t even dare talk with girls that I had already met. I probably needed some professional help.
As I didn’t have it, I had no choice but to overcome it by myself. I needed only a decade! Nothing serious …
There Is Always a Reason
Alcohol is the shy person’s drug. In my case, it only made me do stupid shit, and the next day I didn’t remember anything.
Sometimes I did things that I deeply regret. It’s what happens when you suppress part of yourself. When you let it out, anything can happen.
In my case, when I got drunk, I chased girls. I wasn’t dangerous, just pathetic.
Once in a while, I kissed the first girl I could get. And, as normally happens, she wasn’t the most beautiful in the room.
Thanks to that, I gained “fame” among the girls, which made it impossible for me to get a girlfriend back then.
I started to get drunk only on the occasional weekend, and when I was 25 years old I began to drink reasonably.
Fortunately, little by little, I was drinking less and less, until I stopped completely when I was 34.
I explain this in detail in my article, “Why Don’t You Drink alcohol?”
And everything has improved a lot since then. Now, I can do whatever I want without the need to drink.
I love the explanations of professionals about to drink a lot or take drugs or whatever.
It is about people trying to fill up an inner gap. We try to compensate for it by eating, drinking, gambling or whatever.
The solution is inside, not outside.
