I've heard some stories from a good friend who was going to AA for awhile, he made it sound like I had a chance of hooking up with a drunk fluzzie. He was sticking to the rules and wouldn't say too much but he was still encouraging me to go, I passed on that.

I shared a tasty bottle of hard cider earlier this week.

Maybe two years ago I drank a pint of VO over the course of a week when I felt myself coming down with a cold.

Haven't had a beer in at least 8 years.

I don't. I abhor alcohol: I think it's the worst poison Man's ever made. My parents were both horrible alcoholics, as were many family friends we had when I was growing up. They've both been sober and clean about 27 years now.

I've also had 7 negative encounters with drunk drivers in my life; including an idiot who almost killed me, another idiot who almost killed numerous people by driving them off the road, and a double fatality 50 feet outside my apartment (both driver and passenger had been drinking).

So keep your alcohol. And if you MUST drink, for the love of God, please don't drive. That double fatality tops my list as the single most violent, worst thing I've ever seen in my 30 years of life, and I really don't want to see something like that ever again.

I don't drink because I haven't really found something I can drink straight. And I can't afford to spend the money to stock up on booze to make mixed drinks at home, but I generally can't find a DD to head out to a bar with.

That and I just don't really see a reason to drink, I don't find it all that enjoyable. And I hate being around drunk morons. If I had a DD, and money, and knew I would be surrounded by people who can drink and not be an ******* when they're drunk, then yeah, I might drink. But that's pretty much impossible to do currently.

Same here, maybe once every 3 or 4 months might have a beer when I'm out for dinner and even then I give the keys to the wife and let her drive us home. Bought a six pack almost 3 yrs. ago, still got 2 bottles left in frig., don't even know if it is still good to drink.

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.
