Everyone have a fun New Years Eve? Waking up wondering what you did last night?
Time for a bit of a confession. I don't drink alcohol. Oh, I will take an occasional sip of champagne at a celebration, but it is no more than a sip. The reasons are somewhat varied, but they really boil down to two things:
1) I hate the taste of alcohol
2) It acts purely as a depressant on me, without any of the euphoric effects
And once you knock out those two reasons... why bother, really?
I don't mind others drinking. If you enjoy it, and if you don't do something stupid to harm someone else while you're doing it, why should I care? I'm not a teetotaler, expounding on the "evils of drink". I just don't like it personally. I've had people ask me how I unwind or deal with things if I don't have a drink to relax. I guess I don't need it - good company and fun things to do give me the benefits others seem to get from drinking.
Without some of the less pleasant side effects.
