Good liquor mixed with bad decisions is one hell of a combination. What’s your liquor of choice? I’m a cognac girl. My poison of choice is Remy or Dusse however I don’t discriminate.
Alcohol in general is a tricky substance, it has the power to make us feel like the baddest b**** or the rawest n**** in the room. It helps us loosen up and become more social. It even changes the temperature in our bodies. I know y’all have all had a friend ask “Is y’all hot or am I tweakin’?” Alcohol can make one of the best memories happen but it also can make the worse ones happen too.
The old saying that alcohol is a truth sermon is very much true. We find ourselves confessing our inner feelings and thoughts that are usually hidden in the back of our minds. We are either expressing love for someone/something or expressing our hurt over a situation/ person.
Web MD says alcoholics will tell you that they try to watch what they say when they are drunk, but that’s a problem because alcohol frees the tongue to say what is in the heart.
That makes a lot of sense considering the fact that alcohol affects the most sensitive part of our brain (cerebellum) because it has the ability to control the functions of memory and emotion.
Personally I feel that there are three stages of becoming drunk. It’s happened to me plenty of times and I’ve witnessed it unravel in front of me, so I know I’m on to something lol.
Here’s the steps that we all find ourselves in.
Live & Lit to Down & Out
Step 1: Over It (F*** it, Pass Me The Bottle)
-In this stage you just want to get drunk and forget about all your problems. You want to have fun, laugh, be silly with your friends and do hoodrat shit. One shot turns into three and three shots turn into five. You wanna let lose and feel the vibes.
Step 2: Lit & Feeling Good
– By this time, your liquor is catching up to you and you’re feeling good as fuck. Y’all LIT UP! You and your friends are dancing, singing, and talking. All of y’all are just feeling like this one of the best days ever and you don’t want the night to end. Life just couldn’t be better!
Step 3: Realizations & In My Feelings
-Things have started to simmer down or you saw something that triggered your emotions. Now your in deep thought and everything that you were trying to forget and not feel has hit the surface. You start drunk texting or calling that person addressing all the things you’ve been wanting to get off your chest.
“Alcohol forces our bodies to create an increased amount of serotonin and endorphins, which are responsible for regulating our emotions and our sense of relaxation and happiness. Ultimately, the more often you drink, the more vulnerable your brain becomes to the effects of alcohol, potentially making your moods more volatile over time,” says The American Addiction Centers.
This is why most of us can relate to Drake’s “Marvins Room” and Summer Walker’s “Drunk Dialing.”
We’re trying to cope with our emotions but sometimes your feelings are too strong to bear sometimes. Alcohol gives us the courage to express those feelings and let them out rather their good feelings or bad ones.
9 times out of 10 you’re horny, you miss that person, and you love that person but you wish things were different. Overall you’re passionate and you just want that person to hear you out so there can be some type of closure or resolution.
Don’t get me wrong alcohol isn’t just all emotions. Of course you’re enjoying the day or night out with your friends. However, when its all said and done, when everything has simmered down you know you wanna take your drunk ass to your boyfriend/girlfriend house. No one wants to sleep alone, so when the liquor starts talking it speaks a sober and honest heart.
Now enough with all the deep talk, pass me the Remy please!
