I don't want to talk about the circumstances that caused this, but I have taken it upon myself to make my house an alcohol free environment tonight. I have poured every bottle of liquor down the drain, I have thrown out every bottle of wine or vodka, and the only thing I didn't touch was the beer, because the cases are too heavy to handle on my own.
I have always had extremely strong feelings that alcohol is a disgusting substance that no person should ever touch, even for recreational drinking. I have tried to be tolerant of other people's opinions on the matter, and not force my moral beliefs on them. However, because of something that happened to day, I have been pushed over the edge. If anyone in my household buys more alcohol, they'll find it down the drain before they can get a drink... and I know all the hiding spots in the house.
Note, as I am a complete and unrepentant atheist, my reasons for this are not based on religious beliefs. Instead, my objections are based on health and personal ethics. However, something happened today in my home that forced me to take action for everyone else's good. I will probably get in big trouble for this, but I do not care, as I did this with nothing but the best of intentions.
I'm writing this journal as a simple statement of intention. I need to post this somewhere where I can look at it and remind myself why I'm doing it, and keep myself working for the good of everyone who lives in my home. No, I will not elaborate on why I'm posting this journal, no matter how many questions are asked. My reasons are for me and my closest friends alone.
