There’s this phase, the one that I’m in, of being between sober and drunk;
the phase where you’re just feeling it, it feels good; it also feels slightly crappy; recklessness has awoken, and you want more.
This is the precipitous phase before too much.
All the world’s beauty and all the world’s ills are pulling you into their undertow. Another drink and you won’t feel any of it anymore;
Another drink, and you’ll be staggering.
How to navigate this phase?
Sloooooooow down, even though you don’t want to.
Drink some water, even though you don’t want to.
The next drink with alcoholic content might be your last drink of the rollicking fun evening you’re having right now.
It’s hard to navigate these things when you’re in this phase, because as I already mentioned, you’re feeling reckless.
But if you don’t want to waste some good, and potentially expensive alcohol,
Slow Down Now.
Savor it, wallow in it, maintain…
