I didn't drink for 18 years, unless the wife and I went out to dinner without the kids. I figured "whatever Daddy drank the kids could drink" never a beer or a bottle of wine in the fridge. Now we are empty nesters and I have a much more stressfully job I have a couple of strong bourbon shots after work before dinner. I enjoy it and don't plan to change my routine

I stopped drinking at 18. was never serious about it again until about 10 years ago. Mom and dad were both pretty bad, but I learned from their mistakes. I partied my ass of plenty of times, and never suffered any more than the occasional headache. I still get good and drunk once a month or so, when lack of responsibility permits. I hate bars, and never drive ****ed up.

I've never had a sip, never will.

Parents were alcoholics, it ****ed up my childhood bad. I can not understand what the appeal of being intoxicated could possibly be and am disgusted by the concept. I do have friends who drink, I do not associate with them when they are drinking.

Those who drink and drive should be charged with attempted murder.

I been sober for 26 years. Got sober at a real young age of 20, pfft', not even old enough to drink yet! Anyway, got in a DWI accident as a passenger, almost lost my right leg. Court ordered to treatment, guess I listened. Being sober 'Indin seemed like a new thing back then in '87. Now there are many of us and we realize being a sober 'Indin is older than America. I get some flack at times, being a Lic. booze and dope counselor for the last 13 or so years. Some folks sayin' "Man, look at you Charley. Tryin' to change the world and all. Who you kiddin' dude?"
Well, I ain't trying to change the world, just my place in the world.

Non drinker here.

Reasons:

-2 days ago, I witnessed a double-fatality car accident about 50 feet from my apartment. Both occupants were drinking.
-My parents are sobered alcoholics of about 28 years sobriety.
-My sister is sobering up after years of alcohol and drug abuse.
-I've personally witnessed 6 DUI-related driving offenses and crashes that were non-fatal.

...my list goes on. Don't need alcohol. No sir, no thanks.

I quit drinking 22 years ago. It was easy to do. I don't miss it at all. No big reason, it was just something I thought I would try and never went back to drinking.

Now I have no intention of drinking again. The thought of drinking isn't even appealing anymore.

I do find it interesting that so many responses are rooted in poor impulse control.

Not trying to make any kind of point, just think it's interesting.

I used to drink daily, but I "quit" about two years ago. I will still have a few beers with the family over Christmas, but that's about it.

The reason I quit was 4 years ago I was diagnosed with type 1 (juvenile onset) diabetes. Alcohol makes managing my blood glucose level nearly impossible.

The only thing I really miss about drinking is singing karaoke. I don't have the sack to get up on stage without a little liquid courage.

I know its not the same...but I drink very little.

A 6 pack at times can last a month in my fridge. Maybe longer.

I reserve myself to one drunk a year...but its a bad one. This year its looking like my niece's baby shower this past January...left with beer in hand...and one in each coat pocket. Mrs Pugman drove.

I haven't had any hard liquor in well over a year.

Reasons: I run competitive obstacles courses and work out a lot, cost is a factor to a degree (I like expensive stuff) but the #1 reason is the hangover.

When I was 21 I would split a bottle of Jack with a guy starting at 10 am as we watched girls pass by my dorm room window. Later that night we would finish off anywhere from a 12 pack to a case of beer.

If I did this today twenty years later...if I didn't die I would be hung over for days...I have better things to do with my time.

I pretty much stopped drinking when me and the missus started a family. she gave up her job to stay home and raise the children, I got two more jobs to make up the income. I couldn't afford to drink, I always had something I had to do, and I always had to drive one of them somewhere. Now I take tylenol for my aches and pains and you shouldn't drink when you take it. I don't miss it. I would have missed more of the kids growing up if I had drank

This is just like saying you hate guns because gangbangers shoot each other with guns...........and that you can't stand to be around your friends who own guns. I feel sorry for a lot of people in this thread, they have been scarred by people who have zero self control.

This thread is kind of shocking. There are a lot of people that think having a couple beers is what the devil does and that all evil in the world comes from booze.

I recently stopped drinking, the last drink I had was back at the start of February. I had to stop, if I wanted fighting chance of loosing a massive amount of weight. So far I am well on the road to success.

I stopped drinking after I left active duty military. I never acquired the taste for alcohol and can't stand being around drunks.

Well said my friend, I drank soo much in my younger/military days, it just got old after 30. I'm in my 40's and I do- once in a blue moon have a few drinks -but If I overdo it I feel it for days and the wife (who always drives and has a glass of wine at the most) usually reminds me of what a loud mouth I was at the party along with my friends-lol. Ive seen drinking take a lot of things from a few friends, Ive just been lucky over all those years driving home ect...

Sheesh. Based on that, I don't think any of us have a chance to get into heaven based on our good works.
