A Loooong (Island Ice Tea) Day

Dear Journal,

After a recent Vegas trip, I made a promise to not have a drink for awhile. Well that went out the window once I had a sip of my co-workers delicious Long Island Ice Tea!!!!

Me: What are you drinking?

Co-Worker: I don’t know, I asked the bartender to make a drink with a lot of alcohol. You wanna try?

Me: Ummm … well I shouldn’t … ummm, oh okay sure *takes sip*. It’s pretty good, what is it?

Co-Worker: A Long Island Ice Tea. You look like you want one … coooome on .. let’s go get you one!!

Me: Oh .. oh okay ….. LET’S GO TO THE BAR!!!!

Apparently the bartender made mine a taaad strong … it was 3/4 alcohol and 1/4 “ice tea”. You know how it’s suppose to be “brownish”? Well mine was clear with a minuscule tint of brown.

As I was sipping it, another co-worker asked what I was drinking, “A Long Island Ice Tea!!”. She got the same thing because “it sounded good”.

Well I was beyond buzzed .. I was nearing drunkenness .. again, it was so strong. I don’t remember much of that night … I do remember saying, “Cheers!!” to a couple of people and toasting their glasses randomly.

This was how I saw everything, lol

I was extremely tired afterwards, thankfully I carpooled with this other guy. I slept a little while we drove back. When we got to my car, I wanted to just sleep … my eyes felt like 50 lbs. weights.

I don’t remember how I got back to my apartment … well I do, but I’m not going to write about it. Let’s just say I was going to call a friend to keep me awake while I drove, but decided not to.

After a long day I finally got back to my apartment, I thought I was fine … I took a shower .. turned on the television and was getting ready to watch ….. when I passed out.

An hour and a half later I awoke on my couch wondering how I got home .. what time it was .. and where I was, lol.

My head was spinning, with a throbbing headache … I drank some water, ate something small and got ready for bed.

The next thing I remember it was morning and I said to myself, “No more drinking!”

I think people at work now know the difference between professional, quiet me and the buzzed/drunk sarcastic loud me. Not doing that again …..

Honestly, what am I doing with my life? I would think after getting drunk and passing out in Vegas was enough, but it wasn’t … was it?

Drinking now for me isn’t just getting a buzz, is it? It’s being able to feel something … anything and not care about who I pretend to be.

But really … why I am suddenly drinking more?

I am thankful I live by myself now, because if my parents saw me drunk … damn … not a good thing.

- "In the end, every relationship needs maintenance …Whether it’s the smallest gesture …or just picking up back where you left off. The bottom line is that if you care about someone, it’s pretty easy to make the sacrifice."
