Why We Drank

We drank for happiness and became unhappy.

We drank for joy and became miserable.
We drank for sociability and became argumentative.

We drank for sophistication and became obnoxious.

We drank for friendship and made enemies.

We drank for sleep and awakened without rest.

We drank for strength and felt weak.

We drank “medicinally” and acquired health problems.

We drank for relaxation and got the shakes.

We drank for bravery and became afraid.

We drank for confidence and became doubtful.

We drank to make conversation easier and slurred our speech.

We drank to feel heavenly and ended up feeling like hell.

We drank to forget and were forever haunted.

We drank for freedom and became slaves.

We drank to erase problems and saw them multiply.

We drank to cope with life and invited death.

We drank then felt real cute in our jeans and then puked in our own lap. OH..maybe that's just my experience.

We drank to fit in and ended up alienating everyone .

This is SO good. I feel I should reprint it, frame it and hang it in my home. Better yet, you should create a poster and have everyone hang it in the rooms. Dude...I really love this!

This is so sad.

So true. It only leads to problems and doesn't solve a single one. Those that have been released from addictions death grip are the truly lucky ones.

Great post.

I am glad that I didn't drink enough to have those reasons.
