would you stop drinking if your girlfriend/boyfriend/imaginary version of above asked you to?
guess which band I'm listening to?
but i'd like to say yes i would.
but the above question when given to smoking failed.
unless I thought they had a valid reason, like it was destroying my soul, or something else silly.
or just when you're together?
or just not getting full on wasted?
I've never got the whole arrangement of relationship people telling eachother what to do. None of my mates' birds are like that.
or smoked cigarettes more than occasionally. it would bother me. i wouldn't ask someone to stop, though
i would run a mile if i discovered i was going out with a square.
but i'd drink when she wasn't looking
The only circumstance I could ever imagine this being reasonable is if you were a destructive alcoholic and she was threatening to leave you 'cos you were fucking up both her life and yours.
But otherwise I don't think anyone's got any right to tell their partner how they should live their life.
cos I'd never get far enough for such a (controlling, dull?) person to become my boyfriend in the first place.
i'd definitely think about it but whether i could do it is another question
but i wouldnt do it just cos they asked me too.
also depends how much you want to be with the other person doesnt it.
if you find their habits so unpleasant, you shouldn't be dating them
no, just me then. I think it says something about my own bad habits.
have/had serious drug issues.
I like bad girls I guess....not crackheads though. That was fucking weird,
I should elaborate only one used 'hard' drugs. The other were just too into partying/raving.
..but I don't think that's really linked to drinking at all. I don't like girls to be too up tight, I prefer them to be quite laid back, I probably (subconsciously) link this to alcohol, which is completely wrong of me, some people just don't drink much. It's not necessarily anything to do with how chilled out they are.
So it wouldn't be much of a sacrifice. I wouldn't like the idea of my girlfriend asking it though. Unless, of course, I was a borderline-alcoholic - then it'd obviously be very different.
right now id rather have a hot cute sassy girl
If the answer is "incredibly so" then I'd definitely consider cutting back.
nah, fuck dat bitch. Alcohol is better than humans
although the ultimate combo is getting hammered with people you actually like.
Women aren't in charge of things. Of course I wouldn't.
What would you choose? Would you be with me and never listen to Morrissey and The Smiths again, or would you be alone and have the music...
She didn't like the answer! Ha ha, la-de-day, la-de-day!
doing this. ended up badly. just builds resentment, if you like doing something (that's legal!) then nobody should stop you, simple. I loved her and all, it's like asking her to give up something she enjoys that you don't enjoy as much. not really that fair is it? also her constant moaning about it made me absolutely paranoid that I had a drink problem! I went to AA and everything! they told me straight (almost laughing at me) 'you don't have a drink problem'. Since breaking up am a MUCH happier person and I drink less and don't worry about it. I'd seriously consider her motives behind asking you and maybe ask her to give up something she likes but you don't to make her (hopefully) understand how utterly unfair it is even to ask. good luck!
your username, look it's funny and stuff.
but now she just cant be around me when ive had a drink so i get to have a couple of nights out with my mates on the proviso i dont contact her by phone or text or 'drop in' after my fifth drink. Works.
