As mentiioned earlier I love a cold beer after a hard days at work in summer.
But I prefer my bourbon much more.
I probably have a glass or two (each glass usually has equivalent of 2 to 3 shots) most nights to wind down whilst watching a movie/show or on the PC.
I do try and have 2 or 3 days a week as "dry days", but I enjoy it and love the taste too much to give it up.
I have never been a "problem" drinker as in causing trouble when drunk. Those that do get violent when drunk shouldn't drink full stop.
Now Im not looking for an excuse to justify my drinking because Im not the "drunk-violent" type, and I know I should cut down on it to maybe weekends and not during the week aswell, but it's my poison and as mentioned I'm self controlling/self medicating my consumption.
I rarely get "drunk" these days thou technically I would be over the limit to drive most nights when I do drink.
I find the biggest thing stopping me from drinking these days is the price of alcohol.
If it kept going up I would stop pretty much completely except for special occassions or until I got my own home stihl up and running and producing my own bootleg moonshine.
