Literally, stupid. After spending the summer of 2006 drinking so constantly and heavily, I feel like my life has become numbed. Nothing is really interesting, I don't focus as much and my perspective is lazy. I don't think I'm smart as before/I thought I was, especially since I rejected cal, ucla, and ucsd for ucdavis and i'm scraping by with a 2.7 gpa when I was a 3.9x student in high school. And I expect to go pre-law . I make more mistakes typing, such as skipping words or mispelling them. I easily lose my train of thought or just can't concentrate at all. I'm not aware of the things around me or the things I should be doing. I don't feel as motivated, either. Since then, I haven't been drinking as much or as heavily, but I still can't shake the feeling that I'm less intelligent of a person as I was before. I know that alcohol damages the dendrites of the brain, and that the brain repairs these dendrites, albeit in a different manner so that not 100% of the dendrite damage is recovered. But has anyone else noticed these effects? Or am I just piling one bad thing on top of another and attributing alcohol abuse to it?
