Steve and I went out for an anniversary dinner (24 years) earlier this month, and on a whim I ordered a white wine spritzer with dinner instead of my usual iced tea.

The thing didn't even taste that good, and I never did manage to finish it. I've never been a big drinker, though I have nothing against it, morally or religiously. Just never got into it.

There have been a lot of alcoholics in Steve's family, so he guards against that by only having a drink on special occasions.

I agree with you: Both of us used to drink more when we were younger, and I don't think either of us miss it.But I'm not against drinking alcohol, and don;'t have any problems with those who do. I guess the way I see it, NOT drinking saves me a lot of calories I can spend on stuff I like a lot more!!
