Could you give up alcoholic drinks?

I haven't had an alcoholic drink for about three months, before that I had a very small glass of a single malt whisky once a week. A bottle of the stuff would last me about 3/4 months. When the last one was finished, I realised that I really wasn't that keen on it, and why bother? So I gave it up and haven't missed having it in the slightest. I may still partake of a glass of wine on special occasions like Christmas Day, but not otherwise.

Could other posters give up alcohol?

Easily.

I have a couple at Christmas and perhaps on my birthday if we go out for a meal but that's about it.

Chocolate is another matter.

I haven't had an alcoholic drink since Christmas, when my friend & I shared a bottle of Lanson. I rarely drink now.

Had you asked if I could give a nightly slice of cake up I would have said “ with difficulty but I could if for health reasons ” .
Alcohol is something I don’t touch ,last partaken of at least 30 yrs ago.

Re: Could you give up alcoholic drinks?

On my 60th birthday I decided to kick alcohol into the long grass for good. Never a serious piss artist I was absolutely no stranger to booze. Merlot came in bottles, not glasses as an example. So I stopped. Just like that. Not a single drop ever since. Nothing.

I only drink on two occasions...

When it's raining and when it's not.

Re: Could you give up alcoholic drinks?

I could easily give it up, but why should I when I enjoy it? If it was harming my health I would stop immediately, but a weekly bottle of wine pleases me and blood tests have shown no reason to stop!

Re: Could you give up alcoholic drinks?

Like Twinks if I thought it was harming my health I would never drink again. ...also if I started to need a drink I would stop too....not that I drink much anyway.
