In my gap year before university I worked in a night club and lived the kind of lifestyle that led to a lot of drinking. It was a very social job.
We would have drinks after work and then before we knew it, we were going out.
I slipped into a pattern of drinking heavily and drinking regularly, several nights a week.
Looking back, I know I was drinking to get drunk because that’s what everyone was doing, but it’s scary to look back on nights where I can’t remember what I’ve done or where I’ve been.
Nowadays, I don’t need to have loads of drinks, I can have one or two, have a boogie, go home or I’ll just have a sober night out because I’m not afraid to say no to alcohol.
