Re: Infobus: Hello Sunday Morning!

Hi all, 

My relationship with alcohol is alot healthier than it used to be. 

I only drink every now and again though on these occasions I do often drink more than I should. 

In saying that though I am now more comfortable going out with friends and not drinking sometimes too.

Nazeem Hussain has some pretty funny comedy bits about that actually "sorry mate I can't meet up with you yet - I'm not quite intoxicated enough to bare your company"

Yeah that's the thing, drinking is fun. But if you can learn to have fun without NEEDING to drink then things get really cool

Re: Infobus: Hello Sunday Morning!

I also want to know for those of you who don't drink, what influenced your decision?

@HSM_AUS Man, apolgising to people for something you don't remember sucks!

 

 @Sophie-RO Yep, always dreaded the end of the year as flocks of people would come in to party, drink and socialise. Was so glad that when high school finished for me, I travelled elsewhere or stayed indoors!

Hey @learn to fly! How did you get more comfortable going out with friends and not drinking?? Did anything in particular move you to your now healthier approach?

Yeah, it's so embarrassing to have to be like "umm not sure what I did but sorry for being an idiot last night". I've had mates lose girlfriends over dumb stuff they've done drunk - man do they regret it

I got to know them better. I was in college for a year which involved a lot of drinking and partying, I got a bit over it really. Then got more into working out and healthy eating, and a healthy lifestyle in general. Not that I'm super strict just much more aware of what alcohol consists of now.

For those of you who don't drink, what influenced your decision?

> Alright, even though I said earlier that I'm a curious, occasional drinker, for some time - I was put off the idea of drinking for several reasons. Living on the Gold Coast where it's practically party central, I didn't want to be associated with the negative images or activitiesthat come with drinking culture here  as well as being branded as an irresponsible youth. I also had friends that started underage drinking and saw what happened to them once they became tipsy or drunk plus, I didn't like the taste of most drinks. Family history was also a factor - seeing how my parents react to alcohol consumption; particularly with my father. Very dark times as a family unit.
