Alcohol is one of the most socially widespread drugs,
and has been part of human culture for thousands of years.
This is for pretty evident reasons
For anyone who's tried it before, you'll notice that alcohol quickly makes you better at many things
including temporarily talking to girls and thinking you can jump down more stairs than you actually can
Now, whether it's at a party, or you've responsibly waited until you were of legal age
I think most teenagers and young adults are pretty excited to have their first drink
But if there's anything, you'll find out soon enough
It's that your first drunk experience is always one of the least memorable
Also keep in mind that many people have bad formative experiences with a certain alcohol
And say things like:
"I'm never drinking vodka again"
While you think you mean it, this decision is made by your logical brain
And has no bearing on the future actions of your drunk brain
Of course, many new drinkers worry that they're drinking too much
And don't want to develop bad habits
My friend thought she might have a problem because her family always buys her liquor store gift cards
But you don't need to worry when people buy you gift cards for the liquor store
You need to worry when they stop buying you gift cards for the liquor store
Now a downside of alcohol is how expensive it is
Another downside is one of the effects of alcohol is making you not care about what things cost
Fortunately though, one of the upsides is that one of the effects of alcohol is making you forget to pay for things
So you have to take your wins with your losses
So when you're consuming alcohol, you need to be aware of your level of intoxication
Which someone might ask you for to gauge where you or the group is at
3 out of 10 is a small buzz, and you can definitely feel something happening
6 to 7.5 out of 10 is the Goldilocks Zone
Where you feel charismatic, energised, and excited to do things
Past 8 out of 10 no one will ask because they can already tell
And you start saying things like:
"Why are your eyes so far apart?"
To someone's boobs
And 11 out of 10, where everything goes black
Time no longer exists, and you teleport to new locations
With that in mind, the effect of alcohol can be different for different individuals
And from my experience, there are fundamentally 3 types of drunk people
People who are their usual selves, but better
People who seem exactly the same, but can't walk properly
And people who immediately find a reason to:
Say they love you
Fight someone
Try to have sex with someone
Or cry D;
So one thing you'll have to deal with whether you drink or not
Is your friend passing out
When this happens, you'll notice that everyone else will do one of two things
Help them
Or draw a dick on their forehead
This is a good way to check your social circle for whether or not you have good friends
Depending on what they did first, and the size of the dick
Now at the end of the night, remember that alcohol dehydrates you
So it's really important to drink lots of water
A good strategy is to know what you usually weigh in the morning
And drink enough water to bring yourself up to that weight at night
In practice, I find I don't always have the clarity of mind to do that
So you can also sit under the shower head with your mouth open, wondering where you went wrong
So the next morning, depending on your age and hydration, you might experience a hangover
A hangover is your body telling you you're an idiot
And shouldn't be doing this any more
And the only thing that can make it go away is hash browns
So with that said, always consume responsibly
And hit up Costco if you don't have any in your freezer
