With no desire to ever be inebriated, am I an anomaly or the norm?
When I was younger I would get together with the fellas to go out on drinking night, but I could never get into it. The thought of being in a place I was comfortable and not being in control was unacceptable, much less in a strange place with people I didn’t know.
I was with a friend who was at a fellowship meeting with people who were addicts, or are now recovering addicts. I know people who are not legal to drink yet, I bet they sneak some at open house parties, dying to be 21 so they can go get blitzed. I know people who can’t do certain events or family gatherings unless there is booze there, some who ply themselves with drugs to get wasted, or ”Chinese-eyed”. It seems like most people I meet cannot stand to be in their own mind; almost as if being sober in your own mind is repugnant or something to escape. I wonder, am I the anomaly and those who want to be out of control the norm, or is it the other way around?
