Drinking Alcohol

Drinking Alcohol
Alcohol can and does kill millions of people. It can effect your brain and make you shake, lose all your senses, and kill off your brain cells. It also can cause your liver to deteriorate and not function properly. Liver transplants are hard to come by and do not happen often, if your liver goes out you do not have many chances of living much longer. You could also choke on your puke and die. Drinking too much alcohol can kill you, but millions of people consume mass amounts daily.College students drink and party a great amount. The average student drinks at least three nights a week and that is the weekend. Most sororities and fraternities encourage drinking. The fraternities make their pledges drink and the kids love it. It makes them loosen up and have a good time meeting new people. Drinking is also a good way for students who do not know anybody to meet new people and feel more comfortable when they go into an unfamiliar place with a lot of strangers around. When someone is drunk they feel more comfortable and able to talk to random people they do not know and have a good time. Once someone becomes familiar with certain people or just being drunk around strangers, it becomes a habit and that is when school work starts to not be important anymore. Students who drink start to stop attending classes because they are hung-over, tired because they did not go to bed, or just do not feel like going because they would like to start drinking again. The!
re are those who can drink every night of the week and still go to class, do their homework, and keep their grades up. Those who can do that are very rare and end up eventually stop being able to do it anymore and fail out of school. It is not very hard for someone to pick up a beer and drink it instead of picking up a book to read. After sometime of constantly drinking, I have seen and do see kids drinking while they do their homework or study for a test. I do not know how those kids do it, but hopefully they will realize it someday.

In my experience in college, I have realized that alcohol has had a very bad impact on my choices and academics. Although my grades this semester have improved from last semester, I have not picked up a book in two weeks. I went to Arizona to visit this guy that I know from high school and all I did was drink when I was there. Once I returned, I had to work and I have also had a lot of stupid things to deal with ever since. Somehow I managed to drink thursday, friday, and saturday. Each night I did not get home until around four or five in the morning. I do not know how I did it, but I made it to class on friday. I do not feel as if I have a drinking problem because I know I do not need it to have a good time. I am shy and when I drink I do not feel shy anymore and just walk up to random people and talk to them. It is really hard for me to make friends when I am sober because I choke up and can not think of anything to say. Also, I can not dance but when I am drunk I have so much fun dancing and laughing with my friends and the people I meet. Somehow alcohol is easily available and people want to drink with me so that is how it usually starts. There are many bad situations where I feel could have been avoided if I had not been drunk. I think that I need to get back in the habit of doing all of my work before I party and then I will be fine. The only bad effect alcohol has on me at the moment is that after a night of drinking I can not find the energy to get up and go to class. I am getting better at it though.

Alcohol has definitely helped me out in meeting people here. When I go out and get drunk I always manage to meet new people. I am a people person and I love it when I come home and tell my friends about the new people I met. Some of my really good friends I have, I have I met at some party or another. I have not had any terrifing instances yet with alcohol, but I think that some day something bad is going to happen that will be because of alcohol.

Every night that I drink, there is something I can say that I did that I wish did not happen. When I was in Arizona I went to a frat party which had a Mardi Gras theme to it. I went there with people I did not know and I drank a lot. Before I left, I drank a gin and tonic and a beer. When I got to the party I felt really stupid because I did not know anyone, so I started chugging drinks. I drank two beers in about fifteen minutes. Then this girl Jenn found out where the jungle juice was and I chugged about four of those and then had two more beers. All of this alcohol was consumed an about two hours. I was dancing on the pool table with a guy that I did not even know. There were a lot of snobby girls there and I kept getting drinks spilled on me. One girl spilled a lot on me and Jenn turned around and slapped her. I knew it was only going to get worse, so I left and I do not even remember the walk back to the dorms. When I got there, my friend Chris was shocked at how dru!
nk I was and had to take care of me. I threw up several times for the first time since October. I was talking nonsense and made a fool of myself. I woke up the next morning and I wanted to hide because I felt stupid. I do not think that I really learned anything from that experience though because I drank the next night. I think that when I go back for Spring Break, I am not going to drink as fast as I can. I know if I say that I will not drink at all, I know that would be a lie.

Alcohol is something I do a lot. On an average, I drink at least four times a week, if there is something to do. I am starting to get sick of the same thing so I think I am not going to drink until I return to Arizona. I am going to work really hard and get back on track, or maybe even ahead of my school work. I think I just went through a time where there was a lot going on and had many opportunities to drink. I am going to settle down for a while and become a book worm. I have on midterm this week on two next tuesday so it is time to focus on my work.

Alcohol is something that many people consume. Some can handle it, and others do not know how to control it and it controls them. I know that I drink, but I know that it will not become a habit and I have it under control. I feel bad for people who are alcoholics and can not control their drinking. The worst is an alcoholic who does not think they have a problem. I just wish those who did drink could sit down have a couple and be happy. A lot of people get drunk and violent. I have friends who have broken many things and hurt a lot of people just because they were drunk and everyone let it go because of it. Alcohol can be fun when it is used wisely.
