Drinking consumed double the amount of time that I ever put into it and is about economical as drinking fancy coffee. Pay $5 and piss it away. That's my take.

I don't drink. I haven't for many years.

Why?

Far too many reasons not to and no good ones to justify it.

Having tended bar off and on for years I have often been amused and sometimes scared as hell from the effects alcohol have on some people. From women stripping and dancing on the bar, a woman who got upset at her boyfriend because he was talking to another woman so she slashed her wrists with a broken beer glass, brutal fistfights(and a couple stabbings) over something as stupid as who had the next quarter up at the pool table.

I have seen 2 shootings, 1 by a drunken off duty NYC cop who didn't like the country music being played on the juke box so he shot it, and another by another off duty cop who, after spending the night hitting the bars looking for his ex-girlfriend, shot her in the bar and then chased her into the parking lot where he finished her off.

When I last tended bar, back in '98, I swore I would never go back to it. Life circumstances have brought me back to it, as I haven't been able to find anything else, and it isn't for a lack of looking. In the past 5 months I have been doing it, I haven't even had a really bad argument, let alone a fistfight in the bar I work at.

I am off to work, and hope to hell things stay the way they have these past months.

Alcohol isn't good or bad, nor is a gun. It's all about who's hands it is in. I drink once in a blue moon, maybe a beer or two or maybe a 1/2 dozen shots, it's not something I need to do nor think about when I'm not doing it.

Seems like whenever a thread like this comes up you have the people who can drink in moderation or those that are completely against it because they have/had issues with it or had parents/family with issues.

Even in a poor economy there will always be a need for bartenders. People will find a way to drink.

I unofficially tended bar when the bar owner would rather sit on the other side of the bar. It was a very rough and hard drinking, blue collar bar but for decades the owner always would handle his own bar problems and never call the cops. That was his only rule when anyone tended bar - under no circumstances should anyone call the cops. He was a good guy and very street smart, but always said there should be a law for everyone when they turned 21 they "had to tend bar for 2 years, or until they get good and tired of it. It let's you see the true human nature of people."

I don't. The thought of getting drunk and doing stupid things with no memory afterward just isn't appealing to me. Plus I have an addictive personality, so it wouldn't take much to make me an alcoholic.

Just another day in paradise.

Almost 32. Only time I've ever drank alcohol, was when I had a massive chest/head cold, and a friend made me a hot totti. Never have I drank recreationally, or "to get hammered", etc.

As for reasoning?.. Well, there's several, but one of the more prevalent ones is that I come from a family of raging alcoholics (not my parents thank goodness, but their parents, aunts/uncles, etc.).. so it was just something I decided in my early teens I didn't need to mess with, and I never have.

I have already consumed more than my fair share.

Was it playing a sad song that made him cry?

Didn't you post some stuff yesterday about drinking on the job and how it was consuming your life?

Boring may be what you need.

Didn't Jesus turn water into wine? You'd think that by doing that, he's tacitly condoning people drinking.

Back when there was not a purification process for water, drinking water could make you quite ill. Thus why people drank wine. As for the church expressly forbidding alcohol... I've never heard that.. but they certainly discourage drinking it in excess.
