I had a long, hard week. I need a night alone with my negroni(s)

To decompress and have a good time

To continue to feel nothing. I actually have PTSD and it’s how I self medicate because I’m still in the national guard and it’s a million hoops to get in medication. That’s just depressing to type.

Because I live alone and I’m not putting on pants so I can leave the house

No pants drinking is a very good answer.

Because sometimes other people work through lunch

Spin down the old noodle and take stock of my challenges. My partner doesn’t understand the stress, if I talk work they just tell me their problems since they are (relatively) easy for me to fix.

A few drinks in solitude helps me regroup and create a plan of attack.

Love the flavors of whiskies

I think bourbon can be more taste accessible to new whiskey drinkers than scotch. For something reasonably priced try a Woodford or Buffalo Trace. If you find potential there search on here or elsewhere for some more unique options to try.

Because I have no one else to drink or hang out with, and feel lonely

like

Because my dogs don’t drink.

Drink alone all the time at home. But drinking alone at a bar would be sad. I don’t do it even when travelling.

I like good wine and my husband usually falls asleep at 9 putting the kids to bed.

Because avid solo drinking is a thing.

No better getting drunk to Shark Tank!

22 and I finally feel somewhat ready to come out to my parents. Probably going to do it in a few weeks or a month, wish me luck !

Any tips ? My parents aren’t that religious, but they’re originally from a rather conservative country. I’ve been conditioning them over the years by talking about random gay stuff and gauging their opinions/reaction whenever LGBT things come on tv. So far, it’s been okay, but I’m still scared to come out. I’m their only child and I don’t want to disappoint them 🥺
