Some of you might immediately get triggered after seeing the question in the headline. “How isn’t there a difference? There is a WORLD of difference!” Well, let’s analyze it. How does it feel to drink as a young adult versus drinking as a, well, adult?
Imagine yourself in your early twenties, a college student, or overall a young dude (or girl – hey rad girls and women!), having energy for days. Partying every weekend, the whole weekend, and recovering quickly after a morning of a hangover. Next weekend – let’s do it all over again!
And then there are the thirties. You are a person with a career now. You may be eager to have some fun, but you have your job, responsibilities; you are still young but slightly, SLIGHTLY more aware of how much our health matters. And, let’s face it – you’re ten years older, at least. It affects your body more, whether you like it or not. Therefore, after a night of drinking, you feel like you’re going to die. Your head feels heavy, your mouth is dry – is this hell? Is this really what I did to myself, on purpose? I need a spa day. Am I too old for this shit?
Using a beer-pong, chugging straight from a Jägermeister bottle, and playing mindless drinking games are a part of young adulthood. But, we hit a certain threshold when we feel like going home sober is a bigger accomplishment than returning completely shitfaced. Let’s face it, getting mindlessly drunk just isn’t as appealing as when we got right out of puberty. But, it can’t hurt to do it once in a while, for special occasions.
Let’s hear from you! What stage are you at, RadDrinkers?
Just wait until you hit your 40s and 50s Radasser’s…but be safe no matter what.
