Can't have one drink cause it leads to another? That's too bad cause I can't have one drink or it leads to a fucking PORTAL. Once I step in that portal, it's like I'm in non-synchronized orbit with the planet earth and although I may come close to it most of the time I'm far out, man. And I don't know when I'm coming down...
I hear people sometimes relate having one drink to just going on a long bender. I think it should be more closely related to the Matrix. You took the blue pill now you're stuck in a reality that closely resembles the one you know, but suddenly you can do all these cool tricks and stuff. When you go back to the grey and harsh reality of life you're like "I would like to go back to doing all those cool tricks". The grey reality gets better...cause it's real. In it you'll find the strong, real people who been through some shit and can laugh about it. If life isn't for laughter than I don't know what.
One drink is huge, it's symbolic of flipping the switch. That's why people hold onto their time, they start to realize what one drink means. It's not a drink, it's a PORTAL.
