    I'm by no means an alcoholic, but I notice that once I have one drink in me, I tend to start drinking my ass off. That's not good. I'm going to give a shot at staying sober for at least a month. I already cut out weekdays a couple of months ago. Now let's see how I fare to quit it altogether.

    What's the longest you guys ever been sober?

    Is it true what they say about "brain fog" and stuff like that?

    If I drink the whole bottle at once is that still considered one drink?

    I don't usually drink at home alone, so unless I go out to socially drink I won't. Sometimes I go a whole month without drinking, I just don't think of it or want it. I never let myself get drunk either since I was in my early 20s

    I don't understand drinking but not enough to get drunk. Why bother?

    I liked seeing his big mouth open wide drinking that like he was sucking a thick cock.

    I haven't had a drop since mid August because the liquor store is far away. Gonna remedy the situation next time I go to costco.

    I can't drink vodka anymore. It made my lymph nodes swell up. I know I'm nuts but I keep well away from grain-based alcohol now and I don't have that problem anymore.

    Haven't had alcohol since drinking a couple of beers at a party in February. I have no craving for it.

    Because I like the taste. I don't like the out of control feeling of being drunk. Slightly buzzed but still okay to drive is fine.

    I can swing by and examine it for you?

    Joke aside, hope it's nothing. Get it checked if you become concerned

    I always like watching the old Twilight Zones and Alfred Hitchcock Presents. All the characters on those shows did was drink and smoke. It looks cool, and I want to do it.
