I just drink to give myself confidence. Clearly the healthiest way to do it.
You are going to be a barrel of lols when I meet you guys this year then
I'm not as bad though. I drink until I feel more comfortable around other people because I'm pretty awkward around new people. But still, drinking is a magnificent social lubricant so why not drink?
