I hate all the alcohol-related shirts I see at Target.

I've never been a big drinker. Nothing against it either. In fact, I am amazed at how some people can pound it down where I'd be on the floor after 3 glasses of wine. Rarely had more than 2 though, and that was on a night out.

The first time I saw one of those shirts, I thought "oh cute!" then I realized they were *everywhere*. And I see it in magazines and TV shows and everything... gotta have wine. Gotta have the drink mixing table. Here's the latest new cocktails. Wine night with the gal pals.

I have never enjoyed more than sipping a drink (and not finishing it) because I hate things to be out of control for me. I got tipsy once (not drunk) and it scared the hell out of me. I can't imagine being totally drunk.

In high school everyone was competing to see how drunk they could get so they could brag about it on Monday mornings... I didn't understand it at all.

I have no problems with social drinking on special occasions, like, at Christmas everyone (except me) gets a glass of wine with dinner. Or after a hard day's work the guys have a beer, and generally it's a single beer and some of them don't even finish. (I know because I save those to make beer bread!) But in my experience it was always family-oriented, at home, small quantities, and usually with food. Not the "get together with friends just to have drinks at a bar/restaurant".

At least now I have medications that react badly with booze, so I have that excuse and FINALLY nobody bugs me about it! Before the meds, people would insist I try some drink or other even though drinking gave me migraines ever since the tipsy incident. "But this one's weak, it won't give you a migraine." It wasn't the strength, it was the alcohol itself.

I've been tipsy (which I admit is kind of fun), but never full on drunk. I never wanted to throw up, or have a hangover. Mostly the not wanting to throw up. I think I drink maybe once a month, if that. Well, sometimes If I get a six pack of cider, I'll have one a couple of nights in a row. I usually don't finish the bottle though. I don't like the taste once it gets warm.
