Why Booze And Breakups Don’t Mix

Booze And Breakups Don't Mix

It’s not uncommon to look for a “crutch” when dealing with the pain of a breakup. And what better way to numb that pain than to drown your sorrows in a bottle.

You crack a cold one, and another, and another… and suddenly you’re feeling great!

Unfortunately, the feeling doesn’t last long. Sooner than later the lifting effect of alcohol gives way to depression. And that’s when things start to get messy.

So if you’re tempted to take this route the next time you hit bottom… here are 3 blunders booze can lead to that should make you think twice…

Boozed-Up Blunder #1: The Drunk Dial

This goes down in either of two ways: you’re by your lonesome drinking yourself into oblivion or… you get home smashed from a night out with the boys.

Either way you’re feeling low and want to talk to your ex. So you pick up the phone and call her. It’s late but she answers. You then proceed to make chit-chat. It doesn’t take more than a few words for her to realize you’re wasted.

“Do you have any idea what time it is?” she asks… “Are you drunk?!!!”

“No!” you reply as you try to slur your way back into the conversation. Before you know it… you’re pouring your heart out to her… how much she means to you, how sorry you are, and why she should give you a second chance. But when she tells you, “we’ll talk about this later”, you get a little peeved.

It’s not long before the booze gets the best of you and you find yourself rapidly transforming from a sensitive sap to a pissed-off ex… You snap and tell her where she can shove it.

And when the morning comes you’re left with remorse that nothing can reconcile… that and wicked hangover.

The sobering reality paints a clear picture of how bad you’ve just screwed up. But that’s the best case scenario… because what if she doesn’t pick up?

Dare I say you commit blunder #2?

Boozed-Up Blunder #2: The (Drunk) Drive-By

Your thoughts are racing… but not faster than your car. You’re rushing over to her home without giving second thought to the fact that you’re way above the legal limit for operating a motor vehicle. Besides… you have more important things to worry about now.

Within 10 minutes you’re outside her house. But wait… there’s another car in the driveway… a car that doesn’t belong there. Whose could it be? Upon closer inspection your worst fears come true: it’s that guy your mutual friend told you about… the one that’s been hitting on her at work!

“What now?” you think to yourself… You can’t let this go down… you have to stop them… which leads you to blunder #3…

Boozed-Up Blunder #3: The Drunk Dial On A Drunk Drive-By

Ring… Ring… Ring…

She’s not picking up! It’s time for immediate action. You jump out of the car and within seconds you’re standing on her front steps.

You hesitate for a split second and think to yourself… “Is this a good idea?” But you brush the thought aside and start pounding on the door while repeatedly ringing the doorbell.

She doesn’t answer so you pound harder… ring faster… and start calling out her name.

By now the neighbors have gathered by their windows to see what the all the commotion is about. But you could care less… you scream at them to mind their own business.

And then the shit hits the fan…

The cops arrive, cuff you, and take you away.

The outcome?

You spend the night in jail next to Bubba until your dad bails you out in the morning. His face of disappointment is longer than the rap sheet you’ve just rounded up… disturbing the peace, drunk and disorderly conduct, driving under the influence, and… a restraining order that won’t let you get within 500 feet of your loved one.

“Tough break… but this could never happen to me!” you say?

Think again - this is (mostly) a true story. I know this because it happened to a “friend” of mine… back when he was too young and too stupid to know better.

So the next time you get the urge to drown your sorrows in a bottle… think about my “friend” and always remember that booze and breakups don’t mix.

    well. i suppose i shouldve read this article before the nightmare that befell a ‘friend’ of mine. this ‘friend’ used to be quite rational and had a bright future but his breakup got him in a state of mind where he didnt care about anything and anyone. he started taking unnecessary risks. trying to find an escape in women and booze. none of those helped. the women were fast and easy and only played on his hurting soul. just like the booze, theyd only give that temporary high…then gave way again to the crash and burn lifestyle. he became even bolder. one of his lowpoints was an RD conviction that could just easily have been a DUI. i suppose he just wanted to be stopped. and statistically, that usually happens when friends and family intervene or when the law gets involved. well…he still has his off days…sometimes sniping back at his own friends…hoping that they’d leave him alone to continue his hermit lifestyle. not wanting to get close to anyone. just shutting himself off to the outside world…hoping to find out what this all means and the purpose of his life. we’ll, here’s a prayer for this buddy of mine. i hope he finds peace.
