If I've learned anything during my life, it's that you can't ever expect everything to go the way you planned.
I've known that I needed to go sober for a while and that drinking was holding me back in lots of ways.
To be honest, alcohol was never something that I had a comfortable relationship with.
Since I was a teenager getting drunk has resulted in violent hangovers and sometimes even ending up in the hospital with pancreatitis.
The first time I got drunk was at my cousin's birthday party where my family encouraged me to drink Blue Lagoons (1 part Blue Curacao, 1 part Vodka, 4 parts Lemon juice).
