So, this is my first post in my self-set A-Z challenge.
Alcohol. God i loved it. I loved it ALOT. When i was fee, single and living in a pub (goooood place to be) I drank like a fish. I didn’t have a problem, not at all. I was just a 20 year old party animal. I would go downstairs, pour myself a Guiness, take it upstairs to where I would sit in a nice hot bath and slowly drink.
I could drink many men under the table, and i was famous for how many JagerBombs I could neck without dying of a heart attack. One night my partner and I went down the local pub ‘Esquires’ with a couple of his friends. I was drinking the normal (unhealthy) amount that I normal did on the adverage Friday night, but for once it was hitting me alot harder than usual. I was drunk. Very, very drunk. When it came to home time (which I do not remember at all) apparently I fell through the door and poor Jay had to put me to bed. Now, I get drunk, but i never get THAT drunk.
Something was NOT right.
2 days after, I was still thinking about how for the first time in my life alcohol did not agree with me. I was still feeling rough and I had been sick a few times. I went into town to see my best friend (my god-sons mummy) and she suggested that maybe I couldn’t handle my drink so well because i could be pregnant!
“Noooo course I’m not! I work nights, i don’t have time to get pregnant!” I joked in McDonalds over my Big Mac (which didn’t taste as nice as it normally did)!
2 Pound-Land pregnancy tests later it was confirmed. I was expecting. GULP!
Now, a year later. I still dont really like drinking. OK, thats a lie. Me and James have been out twice as a couple since Willow was born. Both times for friends birthdays. I got drunk. But in all honesty I didnt enjoy it that much. I missed my baby, and all i wanted was to be cuddled up with Willow in bed.
We have had a bottle of Vodka under the sink for some considerable amount of time now, and its only got a few sips missing. I never thought I would see the day!! I’m sure when Willow hits her teenage years, i will start up drinking again. And I might whip out a few JagerBombs!
