Today’s post might be a bit depressing. You might not find anything that amuses you or maybe you will be bored while reading this but the fact that this is my blog, I will still write my heart out.
As the title box suggests today it’s all about alcohol.
Now, since the day I have started understand things I have had this pretty clear thought in my mind about consuming alcohol and smoking cigarettes and that is both them are immoral. I do know most of the ‘youngsters’ i.e. the people of my age group will surely be swearing at me with a statement, “This guy is such a douche. Talking like 80 at 18″ but it won’t affect me for that’s the way I am.
Life is much more beyond alcohol but now when I reflect back on my ideology or my mindset about drinking I am not ashamed to say that I was not completely correct. Maybe drinking isn’t morally wrong. Maybe it isn’t wrong in any way but for me that’s till the point you aren’t addicted to it. Maybe drinking in India is taken to be much of an offense but outside my own country people drink everyday but that drinking is not to an extent that you pass out everyday and the next morning whatsoever happened the night before isn’t remember.
I won’t mind if it’s a once in a while kind of a thing but when it increases and becomes an addiction, it causes much of a havoc. The most sad thing that comes to my mind is passive drinkers get hooked to it and they don’t even realize that!
I would still term drinking (a friend and me love the phrase when it comes to drinking) as an escape from reality. For me people who aren’t happy with their life take this up as an escape from reality. They believe that drinking takes them into a different world altogether, a much better world. A world where everything happens the way they want it to happen, where they are the rulers but the fact is all drinking does to them is lead them into serious liver and kidney problems and finally takes you into a world which well nobody actually knows about, yes, I am talking about Life After Death which, for now, I do believe to exist. Maybe you might miss that too given that you were still drunk and believing it to be a dream with the hope that you will wake up but it will never happen!
But well enough of this. I have come to a point where I do believe that I require my escape my reality.
Maybe I do want to have my escape from reality.
Maybe these testing times will make me realize alcohol is the best option.
Maybe I will end up becoming an alcoholic…………….
Coming back to my senses I do know thatif eighteen years of my parent’supbringing of me cannot come to use now and prevent me from doing such things, it never will and given how much I love them, I won’t do anything that hurts them (even though I know that if I do it, I won’t be even scolded for it) but I will lose their trust forever.
Sometimes life acts as a bitch (I know Uncle Ken you won’t be happy with that word but there is no easy way to put this other than calling it a bitch) but it doesn’t mean you end up trying to search for an alternate world which well does exists but doesn’t comes to the fore by drinking. Parallel Universe might exist but drinking doesn’t take you to it.
So my sincere to advise to all my alcohol consuming people is occasionally is fine, everyday is bad. Stay away. Stay safe. If you are too frustrated with your life, then drinking won’t help, maybe suiciding will. The theory behind that being at least you will be able to enjoy your Life after Death in your senses. (Just Saying)
I don’t expect all of you or any of you to follow this but all I request for is to give it a thought!
Do remember “The first thing in the human personality that dissolves in alcohol is dignity.”
PS Now that the serious talk is done I would like to point out to a couple of quotes that I came across
“If you must drink and drive, drink Pepsi. “
“If drinking is interfering with your work, you’re probably a heavy drinker. If work is interfering with your drinking, you’re probably an alcoholic.”
And the most important of them all
“One reason I don’t drink is that I want to know when I am having a good time.”
Until next time it’s bye bye and if I do lose my followers who are into drinking I GIVE A DAMN. To all others and well to these people as well enjoy life have fun. Take care and well you need to take extra care. Bye bye.
