Half gallon of vodka per day
So, since 2015, I've been drinking a half of a gallon of vodka per day. Well, it escalated to that in 2015 but didn't just start that high. Shouldn't I be in really bad health? I'm completely fine! Is that highly unusual or are the negative effects of alcohol rarely outside of the effects on lifestyle? I always heard about liver disease and all this but I recently had everything checked out and was told I was extremely healthy. I have been drinking a half of a gallon of vodka daily for nearly 4 fucking years! I just don't get it.
On another note, it doesn't much affect my personality or relationships either. 4 years ago, 6 shots would have had me acting a little funny, not wasted, but noticeably drinking. This is how I take it now: I don't just drink whatever. I fill up a small cup that holds 6 shots and take it like a single shot. I barely even feel that now. Like I could forget if I'd had 6 fucking shots. Anyway, I start my day with two of MY shots (so 12). Then I just have one (6) more whenever I start to lose my very slight buzz and continue to do this throughout the day. It's actually improved my life. My social anxiety and depression are gone and I'm way happier doing my job and do a better job at that. Still, I'm worried I'm not going to be able to do this forever, even if I do feel like a million bucks and am in perfect health right now. Should I just say fuck the norm and keep doing my thing? They say don't fix something that isn't broken.
