I will not read the newspaper on day 1 & 2 of January. Why? Because it’s always full of photos of accidents and ‘detailed’ stories of how young engineering & medical students died in accidents on the new years eve. The worst part – it just happens every year without fail. The newspapers are already publishing stories of how the ‘kids’ are going to celebrate with ‘Noodles’ and how ‘Adults’ are going to ‘get high’ tonight. The bigger hotels are publishing advertisements of the new year hangouts that will offer ‘unlimited free alcohol’. It’s all disgusting!
Celebrations & Alcohol Are Synonymous – I don’t Get It!
I wonder why are people so excited about getting drunk on the New Years Eve. Actually, I don’t get the point in getting drunk on any celebration! Celebration is when you ‘celebrate’ – and you’ve to be in senses to ‘celebrate’.
Don’t Let ‘Peer Pressure’ Make You An Idiot
From my observation, people who are low on morals & self-confidence often get crushed by the peer pressure. Imagine this situation – you are in a group of friends and everyone’s ordering alcohol. You, the border-line-case, are then forced to ‘be a man’ & ‘just do it’. You then convince yourself that ‘just one sip’ won’t harm and get started because you don’t want to look like an ‘outsider’. If you’re high on self-confidence you’d simply say ‘no’ and just laugh at your friends. But it requires guts and strong will. Not easy.
Anyway, the whole point is – don’t get drunk tonight. Welcome the new year while being in your senses. Know when you’re having fun.
