As I recently mentioned, I haven’t been a big alcoholic since turning 21. Don’t believe me? It wasn’t until five months after my b-day that I bought an alcoholic beverage and that was a wine sampling. I just have a few basic rules that I saw somewhere and I think they are very reasonable:
- Don’t drink by myself
- Never drink when emotional
- Choose your own limit and don’t let others effect you.
I really haven’t had a problem with this but these are just my simple guidelines. The first two I’ve been a tiny bit tempted with but still have gotten through and I know that I can continue to do so in the future.
