I drink for the same reason so many people do. It makes m e feel better about myself and fills the void in my life. It is the 4th of July, and up until this morning 5 friends and i were going to hang out together. Well, they all stood me up and let me down. I went through a pack of beer to kill the pain. Drinking is an escape for me to say fuck the world. It is ungodly expensive tho. I will go for afew months between drinks. it is not a continous thing.
