I drank a lot of Hennessy this weekend. I even spilt some on my J’s! I don’t normally drink Hennessy but for some reason that’s what my friends decided on, so we bought a gallon. I had about 8 shots. I don’t really mix my liquor I like my drinks straight like six o’clock. I woke up the next day at 3 o’clock in the afternoon and I had the worst hangover I’ve had in a while. So after I threw up I was thinking to myself that this would have never happened if I never drank the Hennessy.
I guess what I’m trying to say is that PEER PRESSURE IS THE DEVIL, it makes you do things that you really have no intention on doing. Peer pressure also helps you realize as a person you always have a choice. There is always that split second before you make your final decision. Some people tend to use peer pressure as an excuse for their own mistakes. All though this my be true in some instances I myself do not believe that. The people that you befriend in your life are there because you chose them to be there. In all actuality sometimes a persons personality makes it easy for them to attract the wrong kind of people. Throughout my entire life I have always made bad decisions. I guess it’s hard for a person like me to stay out of trouble because at the end of the day I am a product of my environment. I know allot of people just like me who are in the same situations as me and some are even worse off then I am. I offer them as much help as I can because I know that it will benefit in the long run. As much as I help people I rarely get any help in return. I guess that my punishment for all the bad decisions and mistakes I have made in the past. You are always suppose to learn from your past mistake, so I guess when my friends say “let’s get the gallon of Henny” next time I will have to beg to differ. Or maybe I won’t…….
