Point/Counterpoint: I’ve Decided to Stop Drinking vs. WHO WANTS TO DO SHOTS?!?

I’ve Decided To Stop Drinking

by Kevin Greenberg

Me SoberI think I’ve reached my limit. It’s been a fun ride but it’s time the rubber hits the road and I curb my drinking. I know I’m going to miss going downtown on Saturdays and hanging with Greg on Thirsty Thursdays, but I just don’t have time for that kind of stuff anymore. I’m finishing up my senior year and I know it’s time to buckle down to make sure I’m ready to graduate and get a job.

The years really have flown by. One night you go to bed at 5 a.m., a freshman with nothing to lose, and the next morning you wake up at 8 a.m., a senior about to step into the real world. It really hits you hard.

You know what though? I think this is going to be good for me. I’ve wasted too many nights drunk and lost too many good memories to blackouts. I could’ve written a book, or gone to more shows in the city, or just spent more time reading. But no, I was out getting hammered four nights a week. I really don’t know what I was thinking back then. Nothing, that’s what. I wasn’t thinking of a single thing – but it’s about time I start thinking.

This is the start of a new me. I’m going to be more responsible, more intelligent, and more clever than I’ve ever been before. Now that I’m going to be in control of myself, there’s no telling what I’m going to be able to do.

Everybody at Jim’s party this Saturday better watch out – there’s a new-and-improved Kevin on the way.
