Is anyone else like this when it comes to alcohol?

Posted by   + Show Post
If I just have one or two drinks, I can clean and clean and clean. I don't know why. Maybe all the work doesn't seem so overwhelming when I am buzzed.

I have a lot to do tonight between cleaning, cooking, and wrapping gifts. My plan is to grab a beer or a glass of wine as soon as I come home from work to get it all done.

If I have a sip of alcohol, I'm off to bed.  It truly does nothing for me except make me tired!

Cleaning the house is more fun when you've had a couple.

Are you a perfectionist when it comes to cleaning?

It is always hard for me to get started because I know that I will expect everything to be perfect and sanitized. I think the alcohol allows me to get going and not worry about that.


Quoting SommelierMom: That exact thing happens to me, usually on my second drink.

Lol I just love wine and hate cleaning so I figured that was why it made cleaning easier.

No it just helps me relax but I can't drink much anymore due to my new medication.

Not now that I am old and rarely drinking - my tolerance level dropped to zilch.  One glass of sangria on Saturday and I passed out.

However I am downing coffee this morning in hopes it will motivate me :/

Eh, I love to clean in general. I dont drink in front of dd. I dont really drink at all period. I might have pina coladas in the pool. That's the extent

I wonder if there is a Christmas pina colada!

No, not with the cleaning. For me that happens when I'm on the phone, lol! I can sit around all day but the minute I get on the phone I'm running around like crazy cleaning counters, folding clothes, scrubbing the bathroom.
