Just a thought as I contemplate 5 pm getting here, me getting home and into a bottle of Scotch.

Depends on the time of year but I figure I average...through the year... at least one drink a day. 10:1 beer to wine. Though we did burn through several cases of 'Mike's Hard Lemonade/Tea/Cranberry' this summer. I like the Tea but the distributor ceased supplying it to Woodman's. Oh well, back to "manly" beverages.

I have a glass of white wine or two with dinner, then I have a cocktail before bed every night. When I wanted to drop a few pounds I gave up alcohol for a week and I couldn't sleep at night. Just wasn't tired.

Every Friday night I can be found at a local brewpub. Occasional Saturday night outings somewhere with friends. And a bottle of wine during the day on Sundays when I should be doing yardwork. Seldom indulge during the week however.

Yay! First morning giggle. That'll keep me smilin' as I perform my morning drudgery.

I told my doctor I had one drink a day usually and she told me to cut back...

You're only a drunk if you drink more than your Doctor.

Suppose since I started this thing I should chip in.
As far as titles go, I'm surely the definition of a functional alky. In the past 16 years there's probably a total of 10 days where I didn't drink. Fortunately, over the years I've mellowed. What I call, Survival Moderation kicked in after 10 years of heavy heavy drinking at 30 when I almost drown in a river tubing accident involving a case of Bud and a thermos of Port. And, ya know, life is grand. Survival Moderation truely allows one to have their rum cake and eat it too. One rule has always stood and always will. There's drinking time, and then there's work time. I've never drank at work, and have never lost a job or had any negative effects of being a drinker come to pass. Why? 'Cause I'm a fart smucker! Drink up, but don't drive or work. Naturally, I always seek out a living place that has a bar within walking distance. Right now I have a brewery up the street. Life is good. Oh, and I don't drink Bud anymore. I love them Wisconsin beers. Leinenkugel's, Tyranena, Capitol. Good shit maynard. Plus me and my best lady dig that wine too. Good reds. Wollersheim Port is fucking awesome! The regular liqour, the daily drinkin' stuff is Cutty Sark. Every now and then we'll treat ourselves to a big bottle of Beefeater or Chivas Regal. Aaaaaaaaahhhhh!!! Hell all this talk is making me really thirsty.

Cheers mi amigos!

And remember; A little alcohol fixes everything. An excess of alcohol will fuck it all back up again.

I used to worry about my drinking. Since I stopped worrying I feel much better about it.


Putting the fun in functional alcoholic since 1985.

Aye, and for whiskey, I like that sour mash stuff. But, I refuse to buy Jack Daniel's anymore. Evan Williams is damn near as good and still has 43% alcohol. The cheap asses at JD have again lowered the alcohol content.
