The taste of alcohol is like anything else that you don't instantly like the flavor of, drink or eat enough of it and often you'll develop an appreciation for it over time. When I was a kid I didn't like onions, peppers, oysters, whiskey, wine, beer and probably a hundred other things that weren't just sweet or salty. I still don't care for beer or bell peppers, but the rest of them I like just fine these days. If I only stuck with food or drink I liked from the first, my diet would be very, very boring.

And whiskey doesn't taste like Nyquil at all. If anything Nyquil tastes like some type of bad liqueur. I'm not sure if there is a good liqueur though, so I may be biased.

like I have said here many times, if a snake was eating a baby, someone would be on the snakes side.

As long as we are free to give those forces the finger...let it go.

the fact that i've been mentioned by name directly in this thread really brings it home for me. of all the threads, of all the opinions, of all the things i've stated on this website over the years, the fact that my quitting is what brings me up in conversation is what really and truly gives me perspective.

now i have a reason to try harder to be remembered for more.

To be fair, bud, your username makes it a lot more memorable. I doubt it would stick in most people's minds if your username was glockerjohn14 or something.

i've thought long and hard about changing it, but then i'd have to remember a whole new username and password, and i'd feel like some sort of wuss for dropping my name, almost like i was trying to hide my past.

i am who i am and i've done what i've done. good or bad i am known by my name and by my word.

I drank pretty heavily till about a year and a half ago. I gave it up for health reasons( middle age, over weight, a couple years into non insulin diabetes drugs). Once a year at Turkey camp I have a few drinks over the weekend and I've maybe had a beer 5 or 6 times in that time too. I'm off the diabetes meds, losing weight but for some reason am still middle aged, two out of three ain't bad.

I'm a bad drunk when I drink - alcohol withdrawal seizures, pass out for days....bother the cops and the EMTs and the ER folks. Got sober in 1989...turned myself in to AA. Was willing to do what they said worked. It did. So now I'm sober over 23 years. You'd call it a miracle if you knew me when I was drinking. Descended from many generations of alcoholics - maybe DNA...grew up around booze and drunks...maybe because it was available. First blackout was at age 10...dang near drank myself to death in college. Heavy drinking on a baby liver (liver doesn't mature until age 21 - that's where the drinking age comes from) causes alcoholism. Drinking booze heavily gets one addicted too. So I meet all three ways of becoming alcoholic and did. Best thing about sobriety is that sexual pleasures are much more intense and pleasurable when sober....and women are more likely to want to share such pleasures when I'm not besotted. I love sobriety. No one took anything from me. Its right there if I want it. My health and my life is so much better now. Can't believe I let myself become a slave to those corporate booze dealers. Drinkers check up: More than four drinks in one sitting is binge drinking according to doctors. And guessing you know all them "flavors" are just carrier vehicles for the alcohol which is identical whether its in Budweiser (worst beer ever brewed) or Jack Daniels, or Captain Morgan or Listerine or Lysol, or gasoline in the winter...

I didn't get in trouble every time I drank, but every time I got in trouble I'd been drinking.

Ask yourself - have you ever been arrested sober? (Warrants don't count)...amazing correlation between booze and handcuffs.

Biggest miracle of all for me is that since I chose to stop drinking I haven't been arrested once...not once...

I grew up with it but was not a drinker. Mom used as medicine on me.

Joined the LDS church so I don't drink.

I use Everclear as a lens cleaner and in some very old darkroom processes and I cook with wine. But I don't drink.

Never been arrested. Enjoy sex both drunk and sober. Take care of myself physically. Waste my money on lots of stuff, booze budget is small potatoes. Don't get in trouble, whatever that means, drunk or sober.

Did I hit all the high points?

Great that booze isn't for you, glad you came to a decision that you're happy with.

When I was young I use to get in trouble when I drank. Something about my personality got be beat up often when I drank. I decided to stay in control and be more careful around people after several instances.

Did not drink in my 20's and 30's......no problem.

Now I drink one night a week. I tend to stay in safe company when I do. When out on the town I don't ever loose control anymore if I have a drink or 3. I guess I learned to handle my alcohol a little better.

All things in moderation, eh? Sounds good to me.

Would you mind telling us why?
Almost 32, never had a drink in my life. My biological father did significant prison time due to drugs and alcohol. Not to mention some family that are raging alcoholics to this day. It was just something I decided in my early teens I didn't need. It's also why I never experimented with drugs.

Darkroom/wine? If you're really cooking food you eat with wine know that university labs have repeatedly proven that 75% of the alcohol still is in wine after its been sautéed for 90 minutes. Restaurant folks will tell you it cooks out. That is not true.
