That’s me. Been about a month now. I just can’t get interested in beer and whiskey right now. Oh, I still like it, don’t get me wrong, but every night I tell myself I should drink a beer or whiskey and write up a review about it. Then this overwhelming wave of apathy comes over me and I don’t. I don’t drink anything either. So unlike my brother Jim, who just drinks like a fish every night, and has no problem drinking a beer and not reviewing it, I am not that way. If I don’t review a beer when I drink a new one, I feel guilty, so to aswage my guilt I will simply not drink anything.
So when you have a blog about drinking stuff this is a problem, and I thnk that is why I am in a funk. I think it started when I got into trouble with my wife over drinking too much. So I stopped to show her that I don’t have a “problem”, which I assure you I don’t. Then I got a head and chest cold, and that kind puts a downer on things, then I just haven’t had the energy to keep up with stuff. Right now I have about 10 whiskey/whisky reviews that I can do, and about twice that many for beer. So it isn’t a problem of not having enough booze to keep going, no it is all about my drive. So I have labeled this an official “FUNK”.
I’m sure you have all gone through these before. Whether you write about your exploits or not, I’m sure you have all gone through points where you have not wanted to drink. So how did you get out of it? Did you force yourself to drink stuff to kind of will yourself out of it? Did you just wait it out? Some advice here would be good, as I have never gone this long in a funk. Oh, I’ve had the week long funks before, but then pulled out of them nicely and kept going, but this is going on 5 weeks now and it shows no signs of weakening.
So,…Advice please! How do I turn it around? What has worked for you in the past? PLEASE, let me know in the comments.
