Daniel Radcliffe says he gave up drinking at the age of 20 because everytime he drank he blacked out. That sounds like just about every college student I know. He says that he became a recluse because he did not want to do or say anything he could not remember to people while drinking so did all of his drinking home and alone. See, that is the scary part. He also said that the only way he was enjoying life was by drinking. I think when you are young and drinking is the new thing in your life and you are going out every night you are not usually going to places where drinking is not an option so drinking and going out become synonymous. So, then it becomes I cannot have fun without drinking which can lead to bad results. I don't need drinking to have a good time, I just like drinking. Having to cut back on my drinking for this diet has not been fun. I am down to 5 drinks a night. I savor every drop of them though.
Good for Daniel that he stopped drinking and is enjoying life without drink. Now if he could only learn to act.
