Reasons Why I Drank:

The sun came up

I had to pee

My foot got twisted in the sheets

My dog looked at me funny

I was in withdrawal

I was low on wine

I had to go to the store for more wine

My dad called

I had to call my dad

I had to go to work

I didn’t have a job

It was cold outside

It was hot outside

It was warm outside

I had to go outside

It was sunny

It was raining

It was cloudy

My nose itched

My favorite show wasn’t on

My favorite show was on

I had plenty of alcohol

What did I leave out? Isn’t that list just absurd? I used to look at my counselors in inpatient like they were nuts for asking me why I drank. “Hello? Because I woke up.”
