switching to an alternate is a good trick...
personally i am drinking beer... i compromised by getting coors light AND I am walking at my deskmill while drinking it... the alcohol has raised my HR by about 15bpm... nice
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.
