I could always find a Reason to Drink. Now I have So Many Reasons Not To. ~ Annie Grace

I’d be hard-pressed to find any day of the year where we can’t come up with a justification for why we should be drinking. From Wine Wednesday to the current trend of COVID cocktails, people are always finding a reason to drink. It’s finding why not to that we struggle with.

Finding A Reason To Drink

Backyard barbecues, camping trips, or just a warm summer evening—no matter the day of the week, the time, or the season—there’s always a reason and an excuse to drink.

Nothing else holds such great power over us when it comes to convincing us to indulge. I’m a huge fan of Taco Tuesdays. But I can look forward to Tuesday without justifying to myself that I should pregame on Sunday with just one taco.

Yet, how many of us have found ourselves having a drink before we go out? Just to get in the mood…

Not So Funny After All

When you substitute alcohol with something silly like tacos, it makes you realize how we’ve all been grasping at straws. Finding a reason to drink shouldn’t be our goal. I didn’t realize just how hard I’d been working at convincing myself I needed to drink until I actually stopped drinking. It was such an eye-opener to experience all these things I’d been convinced that alcohol enhanced without the fog I’d been experiencing them under.
