I went bowling with my cousins, who are all in college and the same age as me, and we had some pitchers of beer and I had like 5 or 6 drinks. I wasnt drunk, just not exactly sober. It takes alot for me to get drunk. I have a natural tolerance to alcohol. I didnt go crazy or have symptoms, I just had a good time and I haven’t regretted it, it was great.
The thing is, I just can’t go back to drinking regularly. When I woke up, I remembered when I would make a coffee and spike it with some whiskey, and I realized that I can drink without losing control, but I used to be an alcoholic and I need to keep my new “social lubricant” view on alcohol instead of “medicine” view I used to have.
I just felt like sharing this experience and asking what your opinions on recovered alcoholics are, I’m sure some of you are like me, recovered from alcoholism.
I wouldnt have even thought about it if it wasnt with family. I just wanted the experience of having fun with them, without our parents and grandparents around. My friends are not as gentlemanly or civilized when they drink, but my cousins are very much so. My family just enjoys alcohol, there have only been two instances of alcoholism in it, me and my uncle, and we’re both recovered. The rest are very responsible about it and behave very well on it.
