Alcohol is like your worst best friend, the kind of friend that convinces you to do all kinds of regrettable things in the name of a "good time." As a former routine blackout drinker, I know very well that binge-drinking can lead to all kinds of bizarre and humiliating behaviors. The things I would do in a blackout were embarrassing enough to make me want to join the witness protection program—although ultimately I ended up in a different kind of program. An anonymous one.
I may no longer enjoy a cocktail, but that doesn't mean I can't enjoy a story about the insanity caused by heavily imbibing. In fact, I find these stories helpful as they remind me why I'll be drinking club soda on New Year's Eve.
DRINK RESPONSIBLY, KIDDOS.
