I have been trying to cut back. It's challenging. There is a point where your will power is compromised. I am trying to avoid that point. I have a glass of scotch in front of me right now. We will see if I can limit myself to just one more and then switch to tea or something.

I've tried this. I don't particularly like beer. So if I drink it, I don't drink much. I drink wine sometimes, but once I open a bottle of wine, I tend to drink it all. Crazy as it probably sounds, I actually like scotch. I must because I drink it neat. I really like good scotch. Thank goodness I am not wealthy enough to afford it other then as a special treat because when I've bought or been gifted Glenlivet or Aberlour, I drink that stuff down like there's no tomorrow.

Scotch is one of those things people either love or they hate. I happen to love it.

i've drank a fair share of scotch in my time but in my middle age i prefer bourbon... more alcohol with less calories... and the high end stuff is both cheap and almost as tasty as a good cognac...

come to think of it... this is my last beer for the night... switching to maker's mark!

The fellow in line in front of me at the liquor store was buying Maker's Mark. I like cognac. Maybe I should give bourbon a try.

One day it's a bottle of whiskey, the next it's tequila. Should I lay off the liquor and only have two bottles of beer?
go to AA asap

Social drinking is fine in my opinion.Also, alcohol improves the insulin sensitivity of your muscle cells and dries you out the next morning so that's something... Tongue
