Last night I tried my hardest to drink a beer and was unable to choke it down. This could be due to a few different factors:

1. I am getting over a horrible illness and the idea of drinking is repulsive right now;

2. The beer was flat and the glass wasn’t the cleanest, making the experience less than desirable;

3. I can’t drink anymore.

I worry that the last answer is correct. Maybe I am finished with drinking? Maybe I just can’t muster up the enthusiasm for alcohol that I once had? Maybe not smoking is making drinking seem pointless and incomplete?

I have a few friends who request my company. They usually want to meet at a bar. What am I to do when I can’t even nurse a beer?
