I guess I’m writing this because I don’t know if I should be proud of myself or if it is to be expected. Drinking was always a big deal to me and still is, which explains why I’m writing this. I’m 20 now and only have a year before I can legally drink. I don’t know how serious underaged drinking is, spiritually and socially. And I don’t know why it is such a dig deal to me when God sees it the same as lying to skip class. I think it is because even though God doesn’t have a hierarchy of sins, people do. If I drank and then tried to talk to someone about my faith they wouldn’t take me seriously. If I took an answer off a friends assignment and then talked to someone about Christ, I think they would be fine. I also made a promise to God, my friends, my family, my school and myself that I wouldn’t drink; it’s important for me to keep my promises. So all this said, I am not drinking until I am 21 because...
- I made a promise
- It is one way I show my love for my God
- It tastes bad
- It helps me witness
- I’m proud of who I am
- To show that it’s possible
- It empowers me
- To break the social stereotype
- To not be a hypocrite when I tell my kids not to drink
- To set an example for anyone that might look up to me
- To honestly check the “no” box when applying for CampCow staff
ps. It’s easy for me to say no because I’m rarely around it.
