not to sound like a protestant but the one bad joke all generations have in common is the normalization of alcohol dependency
like i’m NOT about to start romanticize temperance i’m not against casual drinking or even getting absolutely blasted every once and a while…..but from forty somethings who meme about having to drink a whole bottle of wine to deal with their spouses to people my age who say “i can’t socialize without being at least a little buzzed” like that’s normal…it’s definitely….something to think about
This. And I’m saying that as someone who “needs” to drink at parties. That is called having an anxiety disorder and is something I talked to my psychiatrist about.
“You want some?”
“No thanks, I don’t drink”
“D8 BUT WHY THO”
every fucking time!
I like to go with “because that’s the beverage of satan and tastes rank, what’s wrong with u?”
