Contrary to popular belief, I’m actually not a big advocate of drinking.
A drink to unwind after a long day? Sure, in moderation. A couple of glasses over a fun conversation with friends? Go ahead. Enjoying a mental hallelujah chorus after finding the best drink to go with a meal? Yes please. Finding euphoria while sniffing the most minute details of that special glass of wine? #need.
But to prescribe an e-numan session (an expression we have referring to an online drinking session with people, which is derived from our word for drinking, “inuman”) as a means to get over depression? Heck no.
Having such an easy access to alcohol (liquor ban be damned) is a scary proposition for someone like me… I mean, I’ve been open about my own struggles with depression and anxiety so it should come as no surprise that I am at risk for alcohol dependency.
This is why, after recent horrible personal events, I kept away from booze.
