My Love Hate Relationship with Booze

Love: It tastes so good.

Hate: Makes my head feel floaty in the morning.

Love: To drink with friends and family.

Hate: It can tear families apart.

Love: Some docs say a couple drinks per day is good for you.

Hate: It sure makes staying fit hard.

Love: The Buzz.

Hate: The headache if the buzz goes to far.

Love: Talking BS.

Hate: Falling asleep early and not getting work done.

Love: Sitting on a boat/beach sipping a cold one under the sun.

Hate: That it is hard to stop after two to drive home.

Love: That is takes the edge off after a stressful day.

Hate: It is habit forming and can be an addiction.

Love: Tasting different types.

Hate: The shit is expensive.

Alright Alright, this is enough. I am not sure how long I could go on like this, but I do in fact have a love hate relationship with booze. I have grown up around booze my whole life, and it is still part of who I am today. Family events, friend activities, Prison Break nights, and on and on. It is just what we do.

There are times when I think about never drinking again. For many different reasons. Not just because I woke up with a huge headache. But for all the hates above.

Booze gets in the way of productivity, however I can get a crap load of yard work done over a few beers.

Hate is probably a little harsh for this article, but it fits in my mind. This is part of my life, part of who I am, and part of the lives of pretty much everyone I surround myself with. To change would be very difficult. If I had to I would, but for now it is just who I am and part of what we do. It’s fun. I guess only time will tell where I go with this from here. Love or Hate.
