I had to give up on drinking after I barely squeaked by with a degree in undergraduate college.
It was a sheer miracle that I was accepted into my dream college program as well as took it as a chance at a current start. I wouldn’t get all of the same openings I got while I was in my first four years of college with my current PhD program so I decided that clearly alcohol was the first thing that needed to go in my current life. Too much of my scholarly laziness was perpetuated by indulging in too much liquor consumption. My entire undergraduate experience was unique compared to my friends that attended big 10 state universities. By contrast, I went to a tiny liberal arts college that had fewer students in enrollment than my high school. Needless to say, there was a drastic clique environment as well as you had to find a good group of friends if you didn’t want to slip between the cracks within the small college’s social world. A lot of my college friends fell into alcoholism fairly early in attendance. The people I was with and I all drank on the weekends at first, as well as then it quickly became an evening affair to throw back a few drinks either while I was in or after doing tons of class work. Nowadays I have upgraded my alcohol cravings with cannabis drinks instead. I buy cannabis drinks to upgrade beer as well as wine, as well as thus far it’s working. It’s a lot easier to get stuff done with some THC in your system compared to consuming alcohol. At least that’s what my limited experience has yielded. I just wish that these cannabis drinks were a great deal cheaper, but I expect their price to drop along with other quality cannabis products once they lose their novelty status.
