Nah not me 40 years around whiny cry baby truck drivers will take that sensitivity right out of ya. My dad was an alcoholic and it killed him. Never was much of a dad. I drink but its in moderation. Little whiskey never hurts and I thought Old Mtn men all drank a little whiskey now and then.

I did when I was younger. Watching my brother die changed my ways. He needed a liver transplant and didn't get one in time. It soured me on alcohol completely.

I have to admit I feel the same way. It wasn't hard to give it up. I never liked it.

Because alcohol is so readily available by one source or means, I consider it the most dangerous drug out there.  It seems that everyone has a story to tell on how alcohol abuse has destroyed one’s life or that of a loved one…I have several stories myself.  
Here’s a “good” story.  I know one middle-aged alcoholic that decided it was time for change as encouraged by a close friend.  He went back to school, graduated from a two year program and has since secured steady employment.  He is still considered an alcoholic, but is enjoying a structured and better quality of life.
My “sad” story is I know another alcoholic whose health is dwindling fast and his days are simply numbered.   Bazaar as it may appear, I’ve kept  this visual “assembly”
alcohol is a wonderful thing when used wisely  20180225_102352

around as a glimpse of what alcohol abuse can accomplish.

Ending on my "best" story, every year just like a Birthday-on-the-Calendar I dine with a former alcoholic’s success in becoming alcohol free.  It’s a great time to share for both of us. Coincidentally and ironically What a Face , that date happens to occur this very week.

When I was much younger, I drank quite a bit of beer .. never liked the hard stuff. After I got married, my wife gently "nagged" me to quit. I had my (almost) last beer on New Year's Eve in 1979.
About 5 years later she mentioned to a friend that I was mellower when I used to drink and she wouldn't mind if I did again.
I stayed alcohol free for 22 years and it was as easy as falling off a log. I started back with a beer every now & then and now I have a toddy of XO brandy after dinner on most nights.

Some people have an addictive personality and will be addicted to something .. alcohol, drugs, cigarettes, marijuana, etc. There is almost no hope for those people. Some are successful in quitting but a lot aren't.
My nephew is such a person. He has alienated everyone he knows including his wife and parents. He thinks he is slick and putting one over on everybody. However, he is still in prison and that's where he belongs.

Interesting point you brought-up pat' about addictive personalities.  For those individuals it's extremely hard to give-up one thing without having a replacement.  The former alcoholic I dine with has been medically prescribed Cannabis as a replacement for alcohol.  I asked him why Cannabis?  He said he can partake in as much as he wants and never need to worry about over-dosing.  He has now been sober for 6 years without the craving to go beyond Cannabis.  Go figure...

I have a dear childhood friend, a retired physician, who's an alcoholic.  He's loves AA and it has worked wonders with him; of course he no longer drinks.  My brother, as wonderful a human being as any I've known, developed cirrhosis of the liver and died.  Even after more than 20 years, I still mourn him daily.

On the other hand, alcoholic beverages, in moderation for non-alcoholics, can be beneficial as well as a pleasure.  But drunkenness is dangerous and not excusable.

Ah woke up in ditch in my car, motor running and I had peed on myself. Didn't stop me.

Now Doctor saying it will kill me is a different matter.

Just got back from the Doctor. Got to go back in 10 weeks for biopsy either way it turns out I know my Lord and Savior is in control and no one leaves this stinking world alive.

Been drunk many times, but no more!  I do enjoy an occasional ounce or so of Sugarlands "Silver" 100 proof, (legal) Moonshine.  With a home grilled steak I sometimes will have a locally brewed Craft Beer from the Goat Island Brewery.  By and large I would much rather spend my hard earned funds for shooting instead of drinking.
