I very rarely drink. I do not like to be drunk, do not need it to give me courage, do not need it to make me relax, do not need it to make me cool and do not need it to make me forget anything.
I do not like the feeling of not being in control or having my normal facilities impaired.
Most of my family were non or rare drinkers. Some say there is a gene for alcoholism and I guess we do not have it.
Everyone you meet is fighting a battle you know nothing about. Be kind, always.
