5 reasons why women should not drink
10 February 2015, 16:05
Nairobi - When it comes to alcohol and drunkenness, we talk about the
man and how he affects the relationship by being a drunkard. Last time I
checked, women drink too and some women do not know how to control their
When a man drinks and falls in a ditch or chooses to sleep
in the trenches no one will blink twice at it if anything we will find it
amusing and get on with whatever we were doing. On the other hand when a woman,
in her 20s, 30s, even 60s does the same it scorches the eyes as well as the
mind. We have seen all of them even those in their 80s sleeping at the side of
the road drunk and it unseemly because it goes against womanhood and someone’s
A woman who is a drunk embarrasses her family, herself, her
workmates, and loses their respect for her. No one wants to associate with a
woman who is a drunk because we were not built for such Tom-foolery.When a woman is a drunk, she loses control of all other
parts of her life, you see when we talk about equality and being looked at the
same as men, there are some things that cannot apply here because at the end of
the day we do not think the same. Men compartmentalize, women juggle; that is
why when a woman becomes a drunk everything else falls apart.
A woman who is a drunkard;
Cannot take care of herself
She is the one that arrives at work smelling like a
cocktail, her clothes askew and no idea what is on the agenda. Some women will
even forego to shower because she woke up late since she had a hangover. She
has dirty clothes on because she could not take time out of her busy schedule
of thirsty Thursdays and Wacky Wednesday to pull out of drinking and organize
herself. Trust me, as a woman, when you are thinking you are blinding everyone
with a flashy smile, they can smell the brewery, no amount of mints can
effectively mask it.
Cannot take care of her family
jam-packed weekend with your friends at the local,
catching up on all the piled up workload and late-nights; she needs the house
help to figure out why so and so has not done their homework. She will never
have time to make dinner, or make breakfast for her family at least once and
she cannot make it to church since she has hangover.
Has a high turnover rate when it comes to relationships
Not just the
male-female kind but also the female-female relationships. Between the brash
behavior, having to be picked up off the floor by comrades and forgetting harsh
words uttered in drunken stupor, no one wants to associate with her. Everyone
eventually gets tired.
Cannot hold a job
Between the shoddy work, not making deadlines or targets and
bad relationships with colleagues, drunk women are poor at holding down jobs.
Drunks need money to drink and drunks spend money they do not have thusly
drunks borrow money to keep up their drunken lifestyle. This leads to bad
relationships with employees and fellow employers. Do not be impressed with a
CV with a variety of workplaces but a tendency of very short lifespans; there
is a reason.
Have bad credit
As stated above, drunks spend money they do not have, so
they do not have enough money in the bank to take them through an emergency o
rather the next week. They watch out for salaries not because it is not enough
but because they have some debts that are way overdue.
Women make bad drunks but the one you have to watch out for
is the one who can compartmentalize because you will not see it until it is too
