Breakups can be tough. Of course, for some folks when they're drinking, they find themselves still trying to text their ex. 

Whoooops. Everyone’s been there though at some point. So we found a list of questions that you should ask yourself before you send that text to your ex. 

Question #1: How are you going to feel about this sober?

Are you going to be thinking, "I shouldn't have done that?" Will you be like "thank goodness drunk me had the guts to do what sober me has been too scared to do?"

Try to stay firm if you're feeling like you may regret it. Knowing you had that kind of discipline is rewarding.

If you're worried you won't "behave," just hand your phone off to a friend.

Question #2: What are you hoping to get out of this?

Let's be honest for a second. Nothing too great can come out from a 2 am text message. 

If you’re trying to win your ex's heart back, a 2 am text message is probably not the way to do it. 

Question #3: Will raiding the fridge or heading to Taco Bell make you equally satisfied?


Question 4: Do you still have feelings for your ex? 

This is a question that only YOU can answer. If you have feelings for your ex, handle that when you're sober.
