I’ve definitely had my fair share of alcohol-induced fun since I turned 21, but as I get older, I can’t help but notice how my relationship with drinking has been changing as I make my way through my 20s. With real-world responsibilities and the whole adulting thing in general, I can’t exactly function properly with a hangover these days — and I know I’m not the only one feeling these changes.
And that’s the thing: I’m feeling these changes, but apparently, my age may not even have much to do with it.
