    How long can you go without drinking one drop of alcohol, beer, wine, whatever contains alcohol?

    In my case, it must be 5 years

    I am really only a social drinker. Sometimes I drink to much.

    On average I would say I drink once every 2 months.

    I would say I over drink once every 6 months.

    Not too big on alcohol, maybe because my father is an alcoholic. I seen the damage it does to people and their relationships.

    I like a glass or two of wine with a meal. Don't much care for hard liquor and I really don't care much for drinking by itself or alone.

    Gee I must have drunk at least 10 pints in the last 25 years.

    I can probably go about a year sometimes two years. Not a big drinker. But I can only go a week without chocolate.

    If I never drank another drop wouldn't bother me a bit

    Don't say things like that!!!!!!!!

    Beer is good for you! It's made from things like grain and barley. Hey! It's cereal in a can and it makes you feel good too!

    "In Heaven there is no beer.

    That's why we drink it here.

    And when we're gone from here,

    Our friends will be drinking all the beer."

    (I forget who did that song)

    No wonder you're a happysistah! Me too!!!! But I also like a glass of wine with meals (best served with Big Tex).

    Having said that, I greatly admire those of you who have looked addiction in the fact and said "no." You are strong people and your lives will be the better for it. I celebrate with you every day of your sobriety and wish you many more.
