why u used to drink more/ b/c u liked it or there's a different reason?
and well even when im in a socializing events i drink OJ or Cc, im always holding my ground.
not easy but im what im...
is drinking alcohol common in Israel? perhaps yes, given the fact a lot of your people come from Poland and Russia
i drank more because at highschool we thought we were god knows what big adults
also it was easier to break the ice in social relations, to get friends (i'm a very shy person... yeah
) and i think i'm a much better dancer after alcohol
(not very wasted, but after a few drinks) like my body is more relaxed and i feel more confident in high heels
in Poland we typically drink socially to get to know someone better. People are more honest, tell you some secrets, beliefs... it helps building a bond that normally is protected by "firewall"
For some time I also drank because I had depression and wanted to rather focus on having a hangover than on having depression
fortunately I never allowed this to be drinking on a too big scale. Depression-caused drinking is dangerous, can develop into alcoholism, and I was very aware of it, and never allowed it to get even close to crossing the line.
Alcohol I can not drink for months, I am only addicted to coffee that I can't fight
I'm glad I reduced it that on majority of days I don't go over one cup in the morning (when I'm at the uni or must write article in the evening I may have a second, at worst third one but these are rare cases). But still I'm aware it's an addiction and I don't know replacement for it, and can't resign completely
