|Reviews for why drinking is overrated|

Again, the tone and the specific language used enhances how the speaker feels, and therefore makes the reader understand more about why one would shy away from these often pointless experiences. And it's true, knowing how time was spent and wasted in the pursuit of getting wasted really makes you think about what could you have possibly been thinking at the time. I guess that comes with age, or if one is lucky(read intelligent) enough to forego such socio-important milestones and birthrights in the first place then they are that much farther ahead for excluding themselves. For those of us who fell, or are falling into this pattern, this is definately an important read. Most times it's what you don't do that establishes character and a learned outlook. Well constructed, both through the message and the delivery. MD:77.

wow. i love this, the attitude, underlying sarcasm. i agree completely. it's sad this is what many people call "fun" when really it's just gonna lead them down a lonely, lonely road. very well said!

... so true. the atmosphere is different, for me, not being in america, but i know the feeling too well. and i get a very strong sense of the atmosphere, the sense of place, that you mean. the writing is evocative and not overdone. i'm really very impressed.

I agree... you captured a great snapshot from a complicated subject. Drinking induces so many thoughts and actions.
