A Drinking Life: Manhood

Drinking was part of being a man.  Drinking was an integral part of sexuality, easing entrance to its dark and mysterious treasure chambers.  Drinking was the sacramental binder of friendships.  Drinking was the reward for work, the fuel for celebration, the consolation for death or defeat.  Drinking gave me strength, confidence, ease, laughter; it made me believe that dreams really could come true.

Alcohol is very much tied to masculinity & manhood in many cultures (not just American).  When you’re young and feel as though you’ve got something to prove to the world, drinking can become a very important accessory, tool, or even way of life.

If it’s not curbed with age, experience, and wisdom, though…then it needs to be cut.  Completely.  Like a cancer.

And that will make you a man.
