On drinking...

Yeah, I'm usually a ballbag when I'm drunk too.

Over the last year, I've discovered the virtues of remaining sober.

The problem with getting drunk is that 1 in 5 times it's totally awesome.

To counter that, my experience tends to suggest that remaining sober is totally awesome 1 in 2 times.

I reckon with a little bit of practise and insight you could pick it for close to 100% awesome social experience.

Oh yeah... and sometimes you just shouldn't go.

Alcohol and extremes don't mix. You have to drink a bit, or else you're a ballbag. If you drink too much, you're a ballbag.

Sometimes everyone already knows you're a ballbag, usually that's because you've drunk too much in their company in the past, in that case not going is typically the best option, particularly if sober attendance hasn't subsequently swayed popular opinion.
