What do you drink, and how do you drink it?

Lots of alcoholics on both sides of my family, there was never a single drop of beer or wine at any family gatherings my whole life. My dad basically disappeared when I was 12 — fell into the bottle and didn’t turn up for 20 years.

I had issues with it when I got to college, mainly because I had never been introduced to it or taught anything about it.

I won’t be making that same mistake with my kids.

Drug and alcohol abuse is prevalent in my family on moms side, I have addictive tendencies for sure. Been through a bout of drug addiction but I've never gotten real deep into booze. I like to get into my cups now and then with my best buddy but usually I just have a nightcap to mellow my busy mind before bed. Shit, sometimes I'll pour up a glass of spirit or do a g&t and only get halfway through it before I doze off. I drink nightly but I don't get hammered, just a little buzz preferably on my own product naturally.

Grew up in an abusive household, and all of us 5 boys dealt with it through alcohol (and other things). Today, 4 of us are moderate drinkers of varying levels, youngest brother is a tried and true (15 years now) AA non-drinker. I have been blessed/lucky in keeping my addictive tendencies largely in check.

Of note: My 2 older kids graduated as athletes from prominent D1 schools, and despite every opportunity to join their thirstier teammates, are far too busy with life to let alcohol be more than an occasional great time. Third kid doesn't drink.

Whew!

Im work 12 hour shifts. Dayshift and Nightshift. 4-5 oz of 80 proof before bed at 06:00 AM is the perfect night (day) cap to keep me asleep while everyone else is awake.
