I went to the pub last night with John, a blind man from my church who is turning into a bit of a hero for me. We had a couple of pints and John commented how music begins to sound better after a few drinks. I had to agree with him. This got me thinking about other things that seem better after a few drinks; jokes, a bad mood, chatting with friends, watching football, my own opinion(!). But – How much is too much?
I know that I have done some really stupid things after drinking that have had a negative impact on the rest of my life. However, some of my best memories only had the chance to become great memories because alcohol helped me to relax. How do we know when to stop drinking so that we don’t end up doing something we regret? And does it depend who we are with?
I am looking forward to a tapesty of opinion from all of you. Please don’t be shy about saying what you think, even if it is completely different to me!
