“Grew up a nerd so I didn’t touch the stuff when I was young. When I was old enough to drink, I was old enough to see how many alcoholics were already there in my family.

Finally, every doctor I’ve ever told ‘I don’t drink’ has replied ‘Good’.”

“Hard liquor every night, started to see dependence setting in and stopped enjoying it, and started to interfere with work.

Wish me blessings…”

It’s Literally Poison

“Alcohol is the only drug, if you don’t partake, people think there is something wrong with you.

Your body rejects alcohol; it hates it. I realize the cheeky answer from the Brewsters would be…’ Well, mine doesn’t!’ Not true. It does.

Not only is alcohol literally poison, it can strip your body of valuable nutrients and has a great effect on the CNS.

With all of that said, have I drunk? Yes. Probably more than a small village. But I can say, in every bad decision I have ever made I was intoxicated.

One day, I just decided to stop. Best decision I have ever made. My wife still drinks but I have zero desire based on my past experience. If I even have a tiny sip anymore, I feel a bit ill. Not for me.”

Oops, what did I do? MODEL holding hand on forehead with frightened and regret expression.
