After sitting at the bar at the Tonga Room alone for over two hours because I thought a friend was coming but he ended up deciding not to, I've decided to give up drinking. Alcohol is toxic, expensive, and with the meds I'm on, prone to make me act stupidly. I don't like most wine, beers, or spirits anyway, so giving it up is no big loss. Alcohol now joins animal flesh on my prohibited substance list.
Despite having a nice lunch date earlier in the day, I'm feeling pretty crappy right now.
