30 Days of Truth - Day 20: Your Views on Drugs and Alcohol

I personally have never experimented with drugs.  I have taken drugs prescribed to me for various things and some of those have been... interesting... but I have never purposefully taken a drug - legal or illegal - for a high.

Alcohol is fine in moderation.  I enjoy an alcoholic beverage now and again.  I think some of them are rather tasty.  There are others however that are not so tasty.  The tasty ones are the ones you have to watch out for.  I have been drunk - really, really drunk once.  And by really drunk I mean I have thrown up once from drinking.  Nicole's birthday of this year (2010) Lee made Piña Colada martinis - never again.  I had fun up until I drank too much, then it wasn't fun anymore, everything was fuzzy and moved way too fast.  Never again.

Anyway, I'm not here to judge, but drinking just to get wasted and forget is not the way to go.  You know how you forget when you do that?  You kill brain cells.  Bad news bears.

Also, please, if you choose to get effed up on alcohol and/or drugs, don't get behind the wheel.  Save a life and take a cab. 

And eat Cabin Sticks - YUM.

Bad news beers...
Ha. Sorry.
I totally agree with you on this. Except I have taken medication not prescribed to me. But I didn't like it. Made me feel like life was bland and that there was no reason to live. Not suicidal, but not here. It was weird and sucked.

You, my dear, had a good time in your own home and didn't do anything stupid. You broke no laws (that I know of, or is that how your neighbors "disappeared"?). You were not drinking to get "wasted", nor was your goal to be irresponsible and try to out-drink Nicole at her own birthday.

And you definitely we not wearing one of those stupid shirts that says, "I may not be the best student, but I can blow a 4.0." That is definitely not your motto. But you're about due for an amazing time. Plus, I know how to make real Pina Coladas, jello shots, shots, and martini style. :) I need to hone my bar-tending skills without letting the entire kitchen have a drink.
