Alcohol and I

So for a while, Enyi and her boyfriend have been my only friends here. One day when we went out, we got talking about how Enyi and I do not take alcohol. Somehow, the talk got to creamy alcoholic drinks which Enyi said she had tasted. In a feat of excitement, I asked her boyfriend to buy me one of those because I wanted to get high.
Today, Enyi brought it back with her from the weekend she went to spend.
I am still on it but here is my first alcohol diary.
What does it taste like?
The first thing I feel in my mouth is the flavour. Quite inviting. However, it’s followed closely by the strong smell of alcohol. I don’t like it, I mean the smell. And then I swallow and it’s hot. I don’t like that either. When the heat in my throat goes down, all I feel is creamy sweetness. I like that one. #takes another sip of the cream#
How do you feel?
I think my head is aching. If it’s not then I think it’s the heat in my throat, throbbing. I’m not sure how I feel about that. #takes a long, long, sip#
Would you like this again?
#Takes a long drink#
#tightens my eyes#
No. never.
#finishes the whole damn thing#
