Drunk Online Shopping

Quote:
"Normally, when we haven't had a drink or two, our rational selves intercede between the emotion and the action and we say, 'Oh, I don't really need that' or 'Oh, I don't have the money right now,'" said John Grohol, a clinical psychologist and founder of the online mental health resource PsychCentral.com. "But alcohol takes that one step away, that rational voice away, and we go directly to the emotion and the behavior."

Since I barely drink, this is pretty much a non-issue. I got drunk on a full bottle of wine last year, the first time in at least a decade. Yet all I really did was thoroughly entertain an online friend and stumble into the bedroom briefly in the middle of the night, explaining I had had too much!

I sat for an hour last time I was drunk and near a computer trying to figure out my Paypal password and just couldn't do it. I don't think I have anything to worry about.

I hope I would get this for the local store in my country. However, it is hopeless since my country has too much restrict law, even some ridiculous ones.

P.S. It could help me a lot when needed. I had once drunk with my friends at party and found that no nearby local shops opened in 2 a.m. and we had lacked of liquor. We were drunken and had to find something to drink no matter what. We were ended up with green tea. lol weird

Well, as I don't drink at all, but have a lot of friends who do, I know the biggest problem while drunk is not shopping, but phoning somebody you'd never phoned sober

You could be in for a rude awakening when your credit card bill arrives.
