One cannot blame alcohol for one’s behaviours when drunk because one chooses to drink so much alcohol oneself. Unless you’re addicted to alcohol and thus it controls you rather than you control it – you choose with a clear head to take your very first glass of the night before you take it, which is fine because a little bit of alcohol is fine, but then, unless you’re already drunk by then and so already cannot think clearly due to the alcohol, you choose with a clear enough head to take your next glass, which may still be okay on the odd occasion, but then once more, unless you’re already drunk by then and so already cannot think clearly due to the alcohol, you choose with a clear enough head to take yet another glass, and so forth.
So by using plain logic – you cannot use the excuse of blaming booze for how you behave when drunk compared to when you’re sober, and if you’re such a lightweight that your head becomes already hazy and unable to make clear decisions to stop before you’ve gone too far then learn to not drink at all. Not drinking alcohol is fine – no one should be pressured to. And there’s nothing wrong about being a lightweight unless one still wishes to drink a lot regardless. If you genuinely have an addiction to alcohol though then please seek help and you will not be judged – you will only be judged as a **** if you claim to be in control of your intake yet behave badly when drunk!
Hence in summary, if you behave like a lout, lech, idiot or cheat when you drink too much alcohol then you have a disorder if you are not in control of your intake, or you’re a **** if you are in control of your intake because you deliberately decide with a clear enough head to drink that much. And if you’re a **** without needing to drink any booze at all then I feel for you (or really for those around you!)
Who is hijacking my blog? I’ll sniff you out sooner or later! But a reasonable point made, albeit more bluntly than I’d have put it. Woof.
