Halloween Day, 2015
Waking up early, preparing classes, going to the gym. I’m not making a statement, I’m just repeating what I heard. The theme of the day/night is drinking. Apparently, our society has elaborated this concept that drinking is equal fun: what to do tonight? Of course, the answer is drinking, get wasted, losing it because fun is alcohol.
Unfortunately, it is not drinking for enjoying a glass of wine, a cocktail, or your favorite drink. It is an escape from the real you, an attempt to be part of the crew and be accepted. It goes back to ancient times, to a tradition based on the idea that alcohol abuse is acceptable and even the consequences of it.
Cheers, to a good night, let all of you have fun and be responsible. As to me there will be just one glass of wine for my Halloween celebration because moderation is needed, it makes me stronger, healthier and shows control.
