I hear some people say, "Drinking makes me happy." But does it really? What is it specifically that you enjoy about drinking? Quote of the day to ponder: “If alcohol made you happy, every time you drank you should be full of happiness. Let me ask you, from a purely physiological perspective, how could alcohol possibly make you happy? The effect of alcohol is to deaden all of your senses, to numb you, to inebriate you. If you are numb, how can you feel anything, happiness included? Surely, you are not happy every time you drink.” (From the book This Naked Mind: Control Alcohol) Sure, that tipsy feeling that comes with the first drink does feel good… but that won’t last… then you’re always chasing that initial buzz….and that usually ends up not so good. Just my random thoughts for today. Your thoughts?
