at first i thought you were talking about coffee! (self confessed addict!!!)
but yes you are correct. booze is the devil!
i myself partake in the juice of the barley more oft than not.
i drink more than most,and it is a comfort to have a cold beer in your hand!
you just know everything is ok (NOT!!!!)
i have curbed my attitude a lot in the last few years over this 'drug',because of some
bad choices made whilst intoxicated,whith many that still haunt me today!
although i've never had to 'rape,pillage,or steal to get a drink,
if i can afford it,i'll get 6,12,or 24 beer,just to fool myself everything is ok (NOT!)
it must be ok if i can afford beer,right!
(oops,i forgot to buy milk and bread!!!)
moderation and responsibility ARE the key!
moderation - a 6 pak is fine,you don't really need 12 (unless your trying to escape - and that never works!)
responsibility - food is good,always make sure you have enough. make sure the bills are paid.
always try to have emergency money,ya never know!
after all that,a 6 pak once in a while wont kill you.
ignore any of the above rule and you will get sucked into the bottle!
