Stacie here with my recent first day on period pics. Hahaha just kidding, guys. Lol. Anyway…
Our exclusive content today is from our user, @blayvier. He has shared with us a personal gallery of his friend who went through self-mutilation, alcoholism and depression. Fortunately for @blayvier’s friend, he got the chance to sober up and is presently doing all right.
Alcohol is great for you. Nah, just kidding. Long term, heavy consumption leads to dire consequences later in life. I get that it has it perks but I can say that it has more cons than it has pros. Liver damage, cognitive malfunctioning, substance-abuse related disorders are some of the things I can think of that Mr. Booze can bring. Not to mention that you end up affecting people’s lives negatively aside from yours.
Alcohol is depression’s best friend. My first bout with alcohol was when I was a teenager. It did spiral out of control for me until I became an alcoholic at 13. I have to be honest that half of it were the best times of my life because no great story begins with drinking milk and half of it were bad because I had problems in school, behavior and well, the law. I wouldn’t go into great detail but I’ve been 93% sober for two years and life is not any better when sober. It’s hard to adult. Anyway, I still am glad I fished myself out of something bad rather than ending my existence like what happened to Bon Scott, lead singer of the Aussie rock band, AC/DC. I do kind of miss it sometimes but I don’t think there’s much of a choice for me because if I have to pick between my family, friends and loved one over alcohol, you can bet your right ass cheek that I’d pick them over anything (including a marriage proposal from Ice Cube) any day.
So before you chug that liter of vodka, think about going to class or work with a terrible hangover. It’s a pain in the ass and definitely not worth it.
