Ah, Valentine’s Day. A day filled with gorgeous blooms, gourmet dinners, sweet confections and fine wines. Oh, and love.
Maybe your day didn’t have any of those. Maybe you don’t celebrate Valentine’s Day. Maybe you don’t have a special someone to lavish gifts on even if you felt so inclined. Maybe the lovely souffle you painstakingly slaved over fell flat. Or burned.
But just because the day wasn’t fabulous doesn’t mean you should turn to drink. You won’t find the comfort you seek in the bottom of a bottle. In fact, you will likely make things worse.
Still need convincing? Here are several reasons NOT to pick up the bottle tonight.
You may find yourself unsteady on your feet.
You may care less about your appearance, even to the point of losing articles of clothing. This can be embarrassing in public.
You may have trouble forming complete sentences, or slur your words.
You may find yourself feeling drowsy, and fall asleep in an inappropriate place.
You may find you are becoming more and more dependent on the bottle, and have trouble controlling when and how much you drink.
All good reasons NOT to drown your sorrows in booze this Valentine’s Day.
But drown your sorrows in chocolate? That’s another story.
