Champagne bubbles,
tickle my nose,
they also make
me giggle.
Whenever I drink,
two glasses or more,
my hips sway
and wiggle.

I'm often told,
that I can't hold,
my beer, or wine
or liquor.
I get giddy or sad,
or happy or mad,
and my speech
becomes
much thicker.

So, I must abstain,
from drinking again,
I will never be
a boozer.
I'm not woman enough,
to hold the stuff,
I guess I'm just
a loser!

You are actually the winner for not being able to drink too much.

(smiles) Maybe, but you are a good and wise loser! (angel hugs) Nope, you are a big winner as I am zero-tolerant on drinking too and believe our bodies and souls are too precious to be slowed with the slow poisons! (big hugggsssssss) God Bless You, sweet friend, nope, it's tea, Pepsi, and huckleberry lemonade for me, yay, we all love you so much! You have such a beautiful heart, sweet Linda, thank you for sharing!



May love and light always shine upon you!

Love,
Noah Eaton

Hi-Q!

I got tipsy once in my life--and that was enough for me! It was like self-induced flu!  I hadn't eaten all day and then I had 4 drinks over the course of an evening. Man was I sick! Now I may have only a total of 6 glasses of alcohol a year! I actually prefer ice water!--and that hydrates my complexion--instead of dehydrating it! lol

Cheers!

That huckleberry lemonade sounds delicious! Next time you have some, I'd love it if you would save a glass of it for me!

Bottoms up! tehe

Yes! I most definitely am kidding! I was just being fascetious! lol

As a nurse, I have treated and counseled many alcoholics when I worked in psychiatry. Alcoholism is a heart-breaking, and debilitating disease.

I've never seen a 'pretty' or 'dainty' or 'handsome' drunk. Feeling all soft and loose inside doesn't always translate to the outside, and in fact, its quite the opposite. If we could all have a motion picture of our antics when intoxicated, I think we would rethink!  Great poem.

Nah, neither of us are really losers! We just have weak constitutions!--and that's a good thing! lol

Oh, isn't it just the worst?!? I was sick for 2 whole days not long after I became of age to drink--on 4 drinks on an empty stomach! I'll never revisit an experience like that again! It's water on the rocks for me!--and if truth be known, I prefer the water! lol  

Moderation is the key!--as it is in everything in life!
