In college, it’s pretty common to hear people refer to themselves as “a literal alcoholic” because they went to Barnyard on a Tuesday night. It’s easy to laugh these comments off and go on with your night, but they can actually minimize what alcoholism is. It is not getting drunk in your freshman dorm a couple of times a week, it’s something that can fully ruin your life and is something that caused me immense amounts of pain throughout my childhood.
What up, college kids? What’s more rad than drinking, am I right? The thrill of it all, having a beer despite being two years away from the legal drinking age – it’s the life. Who doesn’t want to get a little buzzed and have a good time with their friends? Well I’d sure love to, but no matter how hard I try I just cannot stand the taste of alcohol.
