I drank a bit when I was 18. Would go out with my older brother and his friends. My dad drunk, so did my brother. Its what you did (yet mum and my older sister didn't). Hanging out with him made me cool. I only did that for about 6 months, then I settled down. I was pregnant at 19 - not due to alcohol. Dumb!! I was happy about it though. Married the guy. We were together for 5 years before we split.
Dazz and I used to have a few shots, then go out, when we first got together. I soon realised alcohol made me sleepy... or maybe it was just after 8pm 🤣, but alcohol was the connection I made, so I stopped drinking.
My SIL bought me a drink at my 30th. I drank half, to be polite, but since then haven't touched a drop. I think now it's more about looking after my body, (yet I still eat sugar, so figure that one out.)
I duuno. I'm kinda proud of not being a drinker, or a smoker, or a coffee drinker. It kind of makes me who I am. I guess it's the image I portray now. A kid at school saw me eating a donut the other day and nearly fell over. She thought all I ate was salad 🤣🤣 because I always have salad for lunch and eat it while I am on playground duty.
Anyway, back to the being normal thing, I pride myself on NOT being normal, so this works in my favour.
