    I stopped drinking a few years ago. Honestly, never cared for the taste or how it made me feel. And believe it or not I NEVER tried any form of drugs

    Come from many generations of alcoholics. Most died young. I started drinking at 6 or 7 sipping from what the folks left or sipping the foam off the beers I brought dad...first drunk at age 10 - passed out. Escalated in high school, full bore by college - had alcohol withdrawal seizures. Kept drinking anyway. Finally quit in 1989...joined Bill Wilson's program and now have been sober 23+ years. Life is much better sober. Amazing...haven't been arrested since I got sober. Alcohol IS poison. Same alcohol in Lysol as in Budweiser - kills germs on contact...and kills livers, kidneys, and pancreas' too...

    I don't but not for any great reason. I just don't like it enough anymore to waste the calories.

    I don't. I have never really cared for it. Only ever had it in small amounts and now I am actually allergic to it.

    I started drinking when I left home to go to the military. I realized that I only smoked cigarettes when I drank alcohol and I really didn't like cigarettes. So I stopped drinking to stop smoking.

    I did a lot of my drinking in my youth. I don't drink much now, maybe three or four beers a month. Anything more than a couple beers and it turns into feeling like crap. Nasty headaches and general crappy feeling. I probably would drink a little more if I wasn't a diabetic. The alcohol turns to sugar and in turn..... well you know. Never been a big drinker, though.

    I don't. I had a mouthful of beer at 4 1/2, (we figured out how to open the bottle). It stunk! I realized that the "grown ups" were "full of sh&t". That made me aware of all the propaganda surrounding beer and by extension all the other BS the permeates our society. Another awakening was when I read the book, "Alias Shakespeare".
