Friends..we all need them. That’s what they say anyway. My best friend these days is alcohol and sometimes I will hang out with acquaintances that most people call drugs. When I hang out with my acquaintances, my best friend is usually there too. I think he gets jealous but I guess more the merrier.
Drinking anything is like a friend who keeps you company. You can watch TV all night and sip on your drink. It may not say much but if you spend enough time with it then it might make your brain talk to you. I can sort of see the appeal of buying a 6-pack, cigarettes and sitting at home with them all night. I wish I enjoyed smoking cigarettes as much as some people. Cigarettes are a real good friend. They can be with you all day long unlike alcohol. You can’t consume liquor while working, driving or in many other situations.
It’s kind of funny how people will never ask someone else if they have any friends. They will always ask about your job and significant other situation but never about friends. It’s almost assumed that everyone has someone they can call a friend. People will think you are a real sad case if you tell them that you don’t have any friends unless if you are new in town. When’s the last time anyone asked you as a get to know you question, “do you have any friends?” Or maybe it’s just way too personal of a question?
Alcohol, drugs and cigarettes are like the 3 Amigos. They love being with each other. I don’t abuse any of them cause I like them all to be in my life forever. I don’t want to spend too much time with them either otherwise I will get sick of them. I hope these friendships can last without complications. Friends forever?
