"The 30 day challenge" (take it if you dare)

https://www.msn.com/en-us/health/voices/i-tried-to-go-without-alcohol-for-a-month-%E2%80%94-and-i-only-made-it-10-days/ar-BBPVblk?ocid=chromentp

I'm not gonna preach to people about their drinking habits, from my perspective if you havent started drinking Irish coffee in the morning, you're not there, yet.

Still as I was telling one asswipe here maybe 6 months ago when he was trying to tell me he had none of the symptoms I showed at that stage of my drinking career and that he just had more will power than me blah blah blah, I told him "take 30 days off, see if you can" because one week IS doable, but man, you start looking forward to that next weekend, but then it sets in you gotta do that again, and again for 4 weekends in a row.

"Why have you been so irritable, Bob?" with variations on that, and a person may start realizing they might need it a little more than they've been letting on to themselves.

I've been noticing a lot of anti-drinking, anti alcohol stories lately, I'm betting it's next to be shamed out of existence like cigarettes, alcohol is an old white male drug of choice anyway, and needs eliminated fro America, just like them.

You watch, alcohol is the next tobacco, in 10 years or less.

1. I bet I haven't had an alcoholic drink in at least 6 months.

I don't much care for the diminished functionality which Alcohol impairment creates.

That said, I'd never support banning it.

Prohibition - control - is the worst addiction of all.

2. I have had a total of 3 beers this year.

In the last 5, I can count twice where I got well and truly smashed. Yes, they are going to come after alcohol. Statists never really learn.

6. I quit booze 10 years ago

I'd be dead now if I hadn't. An ancillary benefit; I've dropped 100 pounds. Stopping is a bitch. At first the booze is always there, in the back of your head, trying to talk you into having just one more. That fades after a year or so. There's no doubt in my mind that booze is bad for you, but there's no way to effectively ban alcohol. We tried that and created a whole new set of problems. It's just too easy to make your own.

7. When I was first diagnosed with this heart problem and released from the hospital

I got the standard "heart health" paperwork that said, among other things, no caffeine and no alcohol. It was hard to give up the caffeine, not because I craved it, but because it was just in so much that I ate or drank. The alcohol was actually very easy to give up. Then when I had my 3 week follow up I was told that the caffeine should be limited because it can affect my rhythm, but my two bedtime drink ritual was no problem.

So I still enjoy my two drinks at bedtime while I play a few games on the computer. FYI: my heart problem is a genetic malformation inside the heart the inhibits blood flow with associated rhythm issues, not an environmental or lifestyle related problem.
