STOP TELLING ME TO DRINK MODERATELY.

A six-pack IS my moderate. It's barely a buzz ffs.

Oh one glass of per week? Pfft.

Yes, I admit I raised my tolerance a hell of a lot over the summer now that I live on the water and have a boat. But wth, I am an unnattractive man who only enjoys the company of others in moderation. I have a good job and a goddamn boat. I am probably going to die alone with or without alcohol, why deprive myself?

I don't drink and drive, I don't get angry-drunk or sloppy-drunk, I don't drink in a way that hurts anyone else nor does it interefere with my job. I easily go weeks without drinking, so I doubt I am an alcoholic - even a functional one.

So somebody tell me why I should be stressing about enjoying this behavior?

I get so tired of this constant preaching that I should be more or else teetotaling. But if I must be preached to, call it what it is: so little alcohol there is no point. "Moderate drinking" is the alcohol equivalent to grinding on a woman while wearing jeans and not climaxing.

Stayed dry successfully for January, first full month dry since 2007.  Sleep patterns became more regulated and consumed 3 books for the month rather than the usual one-a-month.  It wasn't a big deal.

The main thing to say after 31 days without beer is "thank god we invented beer."

guilt by association: Dry January? Fark that. Especially with brewers putting out excellent stouts/porters during this time of year.


Stouts and Porters count as food, so they're not really beers.
(effective, though)

Pinnacle Point: I have never heard of dry January, but then again I blacked out all of January.


I thought "Black-out History Month" was February.

No.. you are not drinking enough beer, and if you are located in Virginia, North, or South Carolina, and the outer banks of both of those states,  Washington DC, Baltimore, Baltimore county, or Tampa Florida..  you must immediately go out and purchase AND consume A six pack of Legend Brewing Co brand Brown ale.

your very health and well being, as well as my pay check REQUIRES you do this.
