How does alcohol change you as a person?
- Well, to be honest, I no longer desire, seek or need to be drunk in order to have a good time when I am with people or on my own unlike my college years where going out each and every weekend with friends and getting wasted was the norm for me. When I drink socially, I might get tipsy enough where I feel a slight buzz, but I know my limits and I don’t try to exceed them and I still am aware of my social settings and the people in my surroundings — because I want to stay alert & be responsible. When I drink alone at home, I feel safe so I don’t necessarily have a limit but again I don’t allow it to get to the point where my character may change; if anything I usually fall asleep afterwards. If I should exceed my limit when drinking, normally I am more or less flirty and silly.
