might be a little early to be posting in the mature topics, but as welcoming and open minded as our community is, think it's worth an attempt.
So, here it goes. As many do, I enjoy a drink as much as the next person, I enjoy high quality beverages in moderation (think expensive scotches my boss and I have, or wines and gins, etc) but others I tend to nearly replace water with. Its been an on and off thing for me beginning my senior year of high school as a way to numb my regrets of choosing academia as a career path versus anything that seems to be fulfilling, or as a way to keep company on lonely nights. Anyways, I find myself in my last year of undergrad appreciating my little niche in some spots of chemistry, physics and biology, but resenting not going into topics where grades are easier to obtain, or into sports or arts which would have been much more pleasurable. That's one end of the spectra the other is probably human interaction, nearing 22 late this November I have yet to receive a kiss from the opposite sex, let alone a relationship or anything intimate. I can't even begin to think about how I would go about telling a girl that. So, been watching my parents house for the past week, and as I hide the may empty beer cans and a few bottle in the neighbors recycling, I think I have a problem and just use alcohol as an escape from the real world. I was curious as to if anyone else has had similar issues, and how they went about quitting the potent potables.
