Now I don't know if these were composed around the same time, but this could have been the morning after for a 6am replenishment shift...
I physically cannot drink like I used to. I got older and hangovers got worse. I started getting migraines more frequently, especially after not sleeping well. I also realized that unless I get absolutely plastered, one or two drinks often makes me very depressed if I'm not in a 100% cheery mindset. Sugar in alcohol also destroys my guts. After getting C.diff last year and being on antibiotics for 9 months, I realized that I don't need alcohol to socialize. I do have social anxiety, and it was a challenge to overcome the stomach-turning nervousness, but it was better than cramps and feeling like I'm going to shit my pants after 2.5 drinks. No more alcoholic go go juice. It was a really fun time in my life, but I've learned how to be confident enough to be entertaining without alcohol.
Goodbye, old girl.
