This is my end of summer and going into the autumn look. Those if I\'m honest, the day we took these photos felt like we were still in the middle of summer and Autumn was just a distant dream. ⠀
I\'m a little late to the linen dress trend that been filling up my Ig feed this summer. Still better late than never, here\'s a linen \'inspired\' dress from Primark. I say \'inspired\' as I don\'t think its strictly a linen dress and its proberbly some cheap knockoff.⠀

With Autumn just around the corner, It got me thinking of September/Autumn fashion and how I\'m looking forward to saying goodbye to my summer dresses and hello to oversize jumpers and cosy cardigan. I\'m trying to reclaim my love for the cardigan, a childhood fave of mine which I have seen to outgrown as I got older. ⠀
Starting with this Sainsbury TU embroidery cardigan which is so lovely to wear. I\'m now looking forward to wearing more cardigan throughout Autumn. Bring it on. ⠀

A Short Story of My Alcohol Consumption

Here is a short story of my alcohol consumption. From 90s boozy barcadi breezer to loving Pina colada.

While growing up I always viewed alcohol with the deepest disgust. I thought it make people behave badly and I could never understand what the fuss was about.

I would see my family member at get-together just losing all their common sense and it would make me so mad. I remember one time seeing my aunt doing something vulgar in front of people and I hid in the corner and cried my eyes out, as I couldn’t understand why people was behaving like that. Where was my parents you might ask, they were watching and laughing with everyone? I had family member telling me to lighten up and it was just a bit of fun. But for me, at the time of being 11 or 12 years It made me really upset and uncomfortable.

I also remember growing up my dad would come home from the pub stinking of cigarette and beers. That another thing, I hated pub due to the smell of cigarettes. Smoking is a crap disgusting habit and entering a pub it would just stink of cigarettes smokes and you couldn’t breathe. My parents rarely took me into a pub as I would end up having a coughing fit.

Moving on a little, I was in high school and my best friend was born with kidney failure. Every week she was on a special machine that helps her kidney. The dialysis machine. So I would visit her in hospital and as I said before, she was my best friend so I always went out of my way to help her. At 16 years old, she got accepted into a kidney transplant programs, this gave her new kidney and new independent. We turned 18 and I got persuaded to go to a club. As I said before I’m quite a shy nerdy girl so clubbing wasn’t my thing but my friends wanted to go – so I did. (I was so pleased when I met Richard and he said he hate clubbing. We’re two peas in a pod!)

To cut a long story short. She had a kidney transplant and she got told she can drink – but not to overdo it. But that didn’t stop her. She turned into a little alcoholic, she would drink like their no tomorrow. Her mum would find 2 empty bottles of wine under her bed, she be out every night at the pub.

Being the friend I am, I tried to help her. She wouldn’t listen – she would get so mad at me. I tried to get her to go to counselling, take her to AA meeting. Then one night we got into a flaming bad argument and it got so bad, we never spoke again. She threw me out of her place and that was it.

I found in my mid 20s that she lost her kidney and she back on dialysis and she was waiting for a new transplant. I never knew what happen. I met Richard and moved on with my life and that was it.

short story of my alcohol history.

When Richard and I was dating, sure we went out to a local pub and had a diluted alcohol drink. When the law was introduced with smoking being banned inside pub, it made me want to visit one. Ok sure you still got the loud drunk, but we would have one drink and then go home. Yeah we were (and still am) so boring.

Even now years later, I still will have only one drink and then call it a night.

Back when I turned 18 (the age limit you can drink in the UK), I became a fan of barcadi breezer and that was my first introduction to alcohol. As I grew up, my taste changed and I found myself loving cocktails drinks, especially pina colada.

As an adult now, I still viewed alcohol drink – not with disgust. But just a way of life. There has been plenty of time over the years when I met clients in pub. I’m still that girl who would rather have water or lemonade then alcohol. I still prefer diluted alcohol drink.

Why am I telling you this story? I recently had a minor kidney infection where I had to be treated by antibiotics.  It was brought on by drinking. It wasn’t a heavy night drinking – but I had one to many. It was my fault and I have only myself to blamed.

I went out with people I didn’t know that well and due to peer pressure I went overboard.

Having a kidney infection sucks and it made me a little bit ill for a week. It has taught me not to go overboard (something that my doctor said) and to stick within my comfort zone. Having this infection just had to happen when I’m so busy with work.

Anyone who reading this, do drink responsible. You don’t want to end up with a kidney infection.

 

And that a short story of my alcohol consumption. What is your viewed on alcohol.

    I am not a big drinker, either. I don’t enjoy the taste and why waste the calories on something I don’t like that much.

    I’m not a lover of alcohol I only really drink Smirnoff ice, archers and lemonade and the odd cocktail depending on what it has in it. I don’t really like a lot of alcohol I can’t stand vodka or anything like that so drinking has never really bothered me

    It seems so odd that there are so many of us going through life who don’t like clubs, yet when we were 18 we couldn’t find anyone who felt the same and stuck up for us when we didn’t want to go! Even now I find myself dreading Birthday nights out because everyone’s so drunk, it’s loud, and I have zero dance skills. However I do drink quite a lot and do enjoy it, and have never had a kidney infection or anything from it – only one very bad hangover in the last 4 years! I suppose it’s all down to what your body is used to

    I love your short story. It’s how I feel about alcohol too since my husband had to give it up I will only have a drink out with friends once in a while. I get turned off by people who get out of control, but I can get that way sober! lol! So sorry to hear about your friend. Sometimes that’s what it takes for people to realize they can’t continue drinking, hopefully

    This was really interesting to read, I very rarely drink alcohol and when I do I usually only have a glass. Luckily because of that I don’t think I’ve ever really had a hangover and hopefully not embarassed myself too much at parties!

    I don’t drink – pretty much ever – except for last week for some reason and I decided to write my latest blog post when drunk, LOL!!! I say, everything in moderation and try to steer clear of the SUGAR FILLED drinks – but of course, those are the tasitest, so it’s hard for people to do that!

    Ohgosh I am totally with you on the smell of cigarette. It is the worst. It was the biggest thing stopping me from drinking for years until Canada banned it in buildings!

    My husband are so the same way, have a drink go home. It’s nice relaxing and enjoyable.

    That totally sucks you got a kidney infection! Hope it’s healed up and your better!

    I think its really good that you viewed alcohol cautiously a lot of people don’t and get themselves into trouble. I don’t like strong drinks, but I do love my occasional glass of wine. I’m sorry you got a kidney infection, but glad you realized you need to be responsible!!

  • StressedMum

    What an honest post, I know my limits with drinking and know how many I can have and even then sometimes 1 is enough. I think drinking is something you either like or don’t and you learn to know your limits,

  • Abbie
    March 21, 2017

    So jealous of the drinking age being 18 in the UK…for me it’s less about wanting to drink, but all my friends are 21+ so they can go “downtown” to the bars, whereas I have to stay home. I don’t know that I would want to get drunk all the time, but being able to go with them would be nice.

    I have definitely gone all out. I am not a heavy drinker, but when I drink, I drink a lot. I don’t normally get too crazy where I black out or anything. I do get drunk though. I can always remember what happened though, or most of it, and the pieces I can’t remember, I can piece together and it is always little details.

    My mom and stepdad don’t drink, however, everyone else in my family does. So when I turned 21 I drank and drank, however, I don’t have to have a drink. I can go out with my family and not drink, but sometimes they encourage it (just because they know I can and sometimes want to). However, I go out with my friends and do drink. I am definitely a social drinker. It is rare I go home and drink alone, or in my house.

    XOXO

    I had a fair few Bacardi Breezer’s when I was younger. Do they even make them now?
    I rarely drink but if I do I usually go for a glass of red wine or nice cocktail (that looks to be low sugar)!
    I agree that alcohol can be a way of life. My boyfriend likes to go to the pub but I’ve never really enjoyed that or got into the habit.

    Oh my god sorry to hear about the ex friend, it is sad to see how alcohol can make the people we love turn into someone that they are not x

  • I grew up in a house where I never saw a beer at all…my parents didn’t drink. I was introduced to alcoholics by my first real boyfriend. Both of his parents were alcoholics. They acted like fools. I hated them for being horrible parents. They were one of the reasons there was so much tension in our relationship. We got married, it ended in divorce. Not entirely their fault, but it played a role. To this day, I don’t really drink. My husband doesn’t really drink. We have an occasional beer, or cocktail, but honestly they are far and few between. Years ago my husbands mom got a divorce, and she started heavily drinking…she got very very sick. To this day she is on medication because of her over consumption of alcohol. Needless to say she doesn’t drink anymore. I have never understood what all the fuss was about…getting drunk, acting stupid…going home and the next day sick? I’m with you…we are boring. 🙂 And I like boring. Sorry to hear about your kidney infection.

  • Amanda Zopp
    March 21, 2017

    I believe alcohol is something you really shouldn’t mess around with. In small quantities and in controlled environments (like in the comfort of your own home, or a nice dinner out even) it can be fine for most people. Other people have a tendency to indulge too much or become addicted. That’s when it can become dangerous.

  • This was intense to share – sorry to hear about all the negative stuff in your life that involve alcohol. Glad you can talk about it xoxo

    Alcohol is a weird one! I haven’t drank since a night out end of January. I don’t drink often, but when i do i tend to go mad. I don’t think that’s entirely bad. I have had funny moments, but never struggled to get home or felt in danger. I think that is extremely important. I would stupidly never believe that alcohol could bring on a kidney infection so good to raise awareness and makes you realise you need to be more careful! x

    Thanks for sharing your story! I have had quite a journey with alcohol over the years – I too grew up thinking it was disgusting hating the way it made my mom and others act. I swore I would never drink it but after some tragedies later on in life, severe depression, and working grueling 70 hour work weeks in NYC, I turned to it and became a bit of an alcoholic craving it every second of the day and blacking out almost every night. Fast forward to now and I’m happy to say, I haven’t touched a drink in years and no longer have a taste for it. I’m perfectly content with a lemonade or juice and, luckily, I found a man who doesn’t drink at all as well. I have nothing against it or others who do drink, just found I am much happier without it. I am so luckily that I never got a kidney infection during my years of binge drinking and am so sorry that happened to you. Wishing you all the best <3

    What a story – I’m so sorry to hear about your best friend, that’s such a shame! I don’t drink more than a glass a night anymore but just like everyone else when I was back in uni I’d drink lots. Until once when I was really upset and drank a whole bottle of rum – which now would most definitely kill me, but back in the day it got me to hospital with a failing kidney. It was so terrifying and it’s so shameful that I had to do that to be reminded that drinking ain’t cool. xx

    I rarely drink now because while I do enjoy the odd drink I don’t see the point in getting that drunk and I can enjoy myself and do fun things without the need for alcohol. When I was younger 17-20 I would have the odd binge every few weeks’ when I went out but thankfully I grew out of it quite quickly x

    First of I’m so sorry to hear about your friend (or maybe I should say former friend). I can’t imagine going through that. I didn’t really start drinking until 21 (the legal age in the states). As long as people are responsible, I don’t have a problem with it.

    Funny story though. I used to work at a day camp who hired counselors from England. After working we would often go out to dinner together. When they found out they couldn’t get a drink (since they were under 21) they were always a bit sad.

    I’m sorry to hear about losing your friend, but I can’t help but think you may be generalising a tad here. My boyfriend and I go to the local pub a couple of nights a week, it’s not a big deal, we don’t get particularly drunk and we don’t stink of alcohol or cigarettes (he does smoke, but doesn’t smell, I wouldn’t be with him if he did!). As long as people are responsible, I don’t think alcohol is an issue. Everything in moderation 🙂

    I like wine and Malibu Rum. 🙂 Those are generally what I go for. My husband also enjoys a glass of good wine or something sparkly, but it’s beer that is usually found in the fridge for a Friday night movie night. 🙂
    We don’t drink often or a lot – but I do enjoy it when the setting is there. 🙂

  • Harriet from Toby & Roo
    March 22, 2017

    I’m so sad reading this, while I see where you are coming from, a lot of people drink at home every evening with their meal instead of going to the pub – there is nothing wrong with that. There really is nothing wrong with alcohol at all, as Becca says above, moderation and all that. I do agree that because it is an addictive substance people need to be conscious of their drinking.

    I did get drunk a few times in my youth but I’m one of those “boring” people that don’t like to drink alcohol. I guess it comes down to the fact that I don’t like the taste and what it does to me. I don’t get to the fun time when drunk, I go straight to the get sick part of it so why bother!

    I do love my wine – I’ve done wine courses and consider myself a bit of an expert 😉 – it’s definitely an appreciation for it though rather than just drinking for the sake of it. We don’t drink during the week but we will have a bottle of wine with dinner at the weekends

    While I certainly don’t judge friends who do appreciate alcohol, I personally loathe it.

    I used to be a big drinker when I was younger, but not so much anymore. I certainly got myself in some states but it was just the way of life at that age – everyone was doing it. There are one or two things I feel embarrassed about but overall I look back on the memories fondly and feel I got it out of my system – there were always others a lot worse than me and now I much prefer a quiet night in x

    I feel like I’m a bit of a been there and done that kind of girl when it comes to alcohol. Before ‘family life’ began for me I did the whole going out every weekend and drinking too much than is considered healthy. It was when I met my now husband and settled down that it slowed up. Then of course when I got pregnant I didn’t touch a drop and I haven’t had a huge amount since. Not only do I worry about being responsible for a child under the influence (what if there was an emergency and I needed to drive somewhere?) but a hangover with a child is NO FUN whatsoever!!

    I’m also a watered-down drink kinda gal. I love mixed drinks and always go for the fruity sort. Still I limit myself and haven’t had to many over board nights in my 30+ years. I can’t imagine having an infection as the result but I can see the lesson I would learn from it. I think drinking should always be done in moderation. No matter the situation.

    I’m very much a lightweight. i used to have 2 smirnoff ices and that was me drunk and giggly for the night. As i’ve got older my tastes have widened. My limit varies in accordance to my moods and what i’ve eaten. I once drunk a whole bottle of JD honey straight and was just as drunk as a night where i’ve had 4 or 5, but I think that was down to having a massive BBQ before hand.
    I used to avoid drinking alone or in company being the only one to drink but since having a kid i’ve learned that one drink on a stressful night isnt bad but it is on the odd occassion. I think the last time i was drunk was 2 years ago which is a far cry from the younger me!
    Thank you for linking up to #TriumphantTales. I hope to see you again tomorrow!

    I was raised by an alcoholic father so I have always been very cautious when it comes to drinking sensibly and for good reason I am not a big drinker at all

    Moderation or abstinence is definitely the key when it comes to alcohol. You are so right, kidney infections are no fun. I’ve had a few too many hangovers in my younger days, now I’m just too old for it. I’ll have an occasional glass of wine or tropical drink on vacation, that’s about all I can handle.
