I am right there with you... When I go to a night club or more accurately, get dragged into one I am so incredibly bored. People tell me it is a
great way to meet someone? Really? You can't even talk to someone without yelling at the tops of your lungs. Even when i was single this never made
any sense to me. I think with some people, they just see talking as getting in the way and unnecessary before intercourse. I think to some the loud
music is actually appealing because then they can just dance, rub up on each other and get horny, drunk and laid. Not judgeing anyone here, it is just
not my thing.
The drinks are 3, 4, 10 times as expensive as they should be. Cover charge? WTF? so you are telling me I have to pay you 10 dollars to go into your
annoyingly loud, completely dark, over priced establishment so I can stand around all night fighting my way to the bar to get a drink, waiting in long
lines to go to the bathroom and not be able to hold any type of conversation because nobody can even hear me? No thanks, I will pass.
Also, how is drinking alcohol pleasurable? It just makes me feel dizzy, buzzed and lightheaded. I don't get how that is pleasurable enough to be
addicting. Can someone explain this logically?
This on the other hand I can't completely get behind. Drinking, to me, is relaxing. It may be possible that you are drinking things that are too
strong for you level of tolerance. I only would get dizzy or lightheaded when I would have a bit too much. The key to enjoying alcohol is
moderation. Tolerance builds overtime and that is how people become addicted to something, when they need more to get the same effects. It works the
same way with any drug.
A beer or a glass of wine shouldn't do that to you. If you don't have a tolerance though (your body not being use to it) drinking a few more than one
could do that to someone. I would suggest if you would actually like to see what it is like to enjoy alcohol, then you pace yourself and not try to
keep up with others. Maybe just one drink in an hour, so your body can cope, this should just make you feel relaxed without any of the side effects
you mentioned. Avoid shots or anything other than beer or wine.
Alcoholics have a tolerance to the effects. They drink everyday and their body finds ways to cope, feeling dizzy, light-headed or buzzed doesn't
happen to them until they drink far more then enough to send someone without a tolerance to the bathroom to throw-up, feeling like they are going to
When they drink, they don't get the negative side effects. They just get the happy relaxed feeling.. well the happy drunks do at least, the violent
drunks... that is another story.
