You can say that alcohol offers a lot of promises, but are in fact empty.
In our society, consuming alcohol is considered acceptable because it offers this and that.
However, the real question is, can you still get the same results without involving alcohol?
The answer may seem surprising, but if you look deep down, it is really not. Sobriety delivers everything that alcohol promises.
Here are a few examples:
This is one of the common reasons why drinking is socially acceptable. Common belief that it’s a social lubricant. However, is that really true?…
In some ways, alcohol does make you “bolder” so you can effectively socialize. However, it comes with a price.
For one, you are not actually yourself when you drink. Hence, the time you do socialize, people know the other side of you that is intoxicated. In other words, alcohol may make you socially brave, but it is not truly you.
Socializing is a skill that is worth learning. You want to be good at it without the need for alcohol. The last thing that you want is to be dependent on alcohol so you just can socialize (which isn’t really you in the first place).
True socializing means being your true self, and that means being sober.
Another reason why people drink is because they think it’s the key to happiness.
It can’t be denied that when you drink, you may feel happier. But the real question is – at what price?
It’s all too common after a night of drinking that you immediately pay the price. Days of feeling anxious, sad and even depressed.
It’s like paying 2 to 3 days of feeling low in exchange for hours of happiness. That’s just bad math.
If you want to be happy, then learn how to do it in a good way and most answers will point to being clear and sober.
We’ve all heard the expression “I had a rough day, I need a bottle”. It seems that it’s an accepted idea that alcohol is the way to relieving stress. But, is it?
I never really got this expression from the first place. Why is alcohol considered as a stress relief, when tomorrow you’ll be dealing with more stress because of the hangover.
There are plenty of ways to relieve stress like meditation, yoga and sporting activities. In fact, these are even better at relieving stress and will also make you a better person in the process.
