I’m trying to dive a little deeper into why I overdrink – a little more nuanced than ‘Because I want that’ – and I’m having trouble with my model.
All the parts feel true/right, but the thought doesn’t match the feeling, and the result proves the feeling, rather than the thought. Can you help me get back on track?
C: a bottle of wine
T: ‘Drinking wine is sophisticated; OR ‘Sophisticated people drink wine.’ This is totally what I think about wine.
F: Inadequate OR Unsophisticated. This is also very much how I feel.
A: I overdrink. Overeat. Hide. Do not present myself at my best. Create hangover, worry over actions or words said while drinking.
R: I am not sophisticated because, while sophisticated people drink wine, they do not get drunk.
