I’d always been an Irish I could drink shirt. I could outdrink most of my friends, including Irish men. I loved to drink but only on the weekends. I could NOT drink if I needed to. Then in 2016, I quit my day job of 17 years, and said to myself, Self, you’re 43 years old. If you’re not an alcoholic now, you’ll never be one! You can totes have some wine every night, like normal people do. Bottoms up!
Irish, I could drink Shirt
New Irish, I could drink Shirt
So I started having an Irish I could drink shirt or two of wine every night. Within 2.5 years, it was a bottle and a half every night. Every single morning I woke up and said I wouldn’t drink that night. Every single night brought an excuse that made it okay for me to break that promise. I was tired. I wasn’t tired. I was happy. I was sad.
