the party's over?

just read this in an article about dating; and the 5 types of women to avoid.

The last line should be of interest to anyone in recovery.

talk about making a sweeping generalization. wow.

while that may be true for some, it's unfair to assume for the majority.

4) The Party Girl

When men meet this ball of fun, they think she is the life of the party. She’s carefree, maybe a little wild, and from the outside looks like a person they may be interested in. Once they get a closer look, however, they realize that her entire life is a party. While a guaranteed good time may seem like a good idea, what will she be like in the sobering light of day?

Her hilarious antics, outgoing personality and righteous dance moves are good in small doses, but the Party Girl doesn’t know the meaning of “closing time.” It’s hard to have a healthy relationship with a person who is masking major problems underneath his or her party hat. Plus, we all know that people who can't amuse themselves without mind-altering substances just aren’t any fun when the party is over.

why the hell would i want a drink when i was hoping for a quick death, just kidding, heee heee heee. but really, a drink never even crossed my mind...

i like that last sentence too. very true. when i was first sober, that figuring what i liked, what to do, how to amuse myself was incredibly hard to do...

When I was drinking I was able to amuse myself in my sober moments and I could still be fun however, I was usually nursing a hangover so it was very forced. It's so much better to be sober and it makes the parties and the simple life so much more enjoyable and natural.
