I signed up here a bit ago. Somebody said to introduce myself so I finally decided to. I'm a writer from Las Vegas. Last couple of nights I've been sipping away on Absinthe. Before this week, I was waking up and drinking Gin in the mornings. I have lots of writing to finish in the following months. So, about two nights ago I was bored. I've been extremely moody and stunned with boredom (self diagnosed myself with Borderline Personality Disorder!) This explains it. So I cracked open my bottle of Absinthe. Opened my $12 Absinthe spoon that I had ordered and began to pour myself a glass.
I have to say I am now addicted. The cloudiness, the scent of black licorice and the cool sensation and numbness that grows with every sip. *Takes another sip before continuing* I might have found my new passion, and only way to get through life now. If I don't have a glass each night, something is not right.
I originally tried Absinthe before, I believe it was late last year with my current girlfriend. We prepared two glasses using forks, we had a bottle of Mansinthe. If I recall correctly, we had smoked Saliva earlier. We were bored, sniffing pills wasn't thrilling enough. My experience was that I had made it too strong, and I didn't finish my glass. The scent of licorice lingered in the air a long while afterwards. Since trying it alone, with a better perpetration and understanding, I wanted to climb right into the glass and take a swim. That is the only way to describe the beauty of it.
Thanks for reading! I look forward to getting to know some of you.
I'm Drew, by the way.
