I’m from Canada where the legal drinking age is 18. I enjoy craft beers and have had the chance to sample some really awesome liquors overs the years. But has any of this contributed to by adult life and added any real value? No.
Even hanging out at bars, dance clubs, or getting totally hammered on a Friday evening. None of those experiences have contributed to my success as an adult or improved my social life. One day you will realize its just another very small part of life that’s fun to sip on sometimes. If its anything more than that, you will be headed down a dark path that’s honestly just a waste of time.
Keep growing as a person, there is so much more to a great social life than just a shot of bourbon. But I can’t tell you what that is, you will keep growing and find out for yourself.
