Is never drinking alcohol beneficial?
When I was 18, on the first night I drank whiskey, I drank so much (encouraged by my college friends ) that I was brought to the hospital and would have died of alcohol poisoning without their attention. I decided when I woke up in the hospital to never drink distilled beverages again. I am now 56 years old, and I think this was the best decision of my life. I occasionally have a glass of wine or one beer, but usually don't finish it. I don't enjoy the effects of alcohol, and never miss them. I am basically healthy, and still participate in things like festivals, Burning Man regionals, and go out to open mics at bars, and just don't drink. Please please, stick to your commitment. You will be healthier, live longer, think better, and never regret a sober life.
