Short Stories 58 — Current drinking Experience

It was 5–6 years prior when I first drank alcohol. At a friend's place. It was an amazing experience. It was a rough phase for me personally. I was completely uncertain about my future. I did not have a direction in life. In fact, I had no goals in life either.

During that phase, I was unemployed for 2 years. The college had ended 2 years ago and yet I had yet to figure out my shit. I was completely done with it. I was depressed. Even a phone call from a friend gave me anxiety. Thining I don't have anything to say. THough a course and a lot of hard work finally, I am fine now. Got a job and it has been almost 2.5 years. I am enjoying my life.

Consumption of alcohol has changed a lot too. Earlier I used to be excited to drink alcohol. I used to wait for when I will go out with friends and drink. But now it is whatever. In fact, I don’t enjoy drinking at all. Nowadays it is more of a gathering thing. I am fine if I can just enjoy conversations with friends without drinks. In fact, I would prefer it more. But still, beer is also something I enjoy with a little conversation. Earlier I hated the taste of beer. But over the years its taste has grown on me.

I haven’t tasted a lot of drinks. Recently I was planning to create a small place for a bar in my house. I know my parents won’t allow it but it was something I was planning to do when I own a place. I also looked at all the utensils I would need. Checked a lot of youtube videos on it. Checked out videos of how to create drinks. I had checked out, how much it would cost me to set up a bar.

But that thought has also lost its excitement. I am not interested anymore in setting up a bar. Nowadays, I don’t feel like drinking at all. I was away from home for 2 years. And during that phase I have drank a lot. To a point were I woke up in my own puke. And after that point it changed me. I remember that day I drank all out. And maybe I don’t even remeeber but I think I fell asleep in the bathroom. Puked in the bed and in the bathroom as well.

And when in the emorning I woke up, my face was in the puke. I had slept at 2 or maybe 3 in the morning. I had woken up at 8 in the morning. And after seeing that I litearlly cleaned right after waking up. WIth dettol I cleaned the enitre room. Cleaned the bathroom and other utensils that had my nuke in it. ANd after that my drink has reduceed to a point where I cdon’t even crave it. And now I just drink with friends and at gatherings.
