Did you ever try diluting your drinks?
If you’ve ever said to yourself and others, maybe I’ll try diluting my drinks so it won’t be so potent and maybe I won’t freak out, black out, or do anything but pass out!
I use to blame it on not eating before/while I drank. It would buy me some time between slip ups and I could still drink. Excuses.
I also thought it was because I was close to my monthly visit from The Lady in Red…
I thought maybe the wine had to much alcohol content.
I’m sure there are some really good excuses out there that I never thought of. They were and are all excuses trying to be in constant denial of not being able to control my drinking.
I finally realized that diluting my drinks was not helping and I eventually came to the same result every time I drank.
Moderation was never for me. Why drink if you aren’t going to get drunk. What’s the point? Why drink?
Diluting, excuses and denial will never help us.
This is Being Me Sober
