I am drinking wine. Large quantities of red wine. From 2013.

Thank you, Dionysus.

Always question all authorities because the authority you don't question is the most dangerous... except me, never question me.

Hi, Davin... :computerwave:


Maybe I am just a good woman trapped inside the body of an alcoholic.  :grin:

I think that deep down, with enough drink drunk, we are all a bit of an alcoholic.



...or maybe not, maybe it's just me.

On the serious side: teaching little kids "habits" like that borders on chiod abuse in my book - sorry to be the party pooper but we all know that even small things can get deeply imprinted into young brains.

"Hey, little boy, it's OK to drink, it's fun!"

If enjoying a glass or two of wine makes me an alcoholic, according to experts...So be it.

That GIF is just a joke.
Everyone knows you don't give children alcoholic beverages.

Oh totally. My mom wouldn't let me drink root beer from a glass bottle because she thought the same thing. I had to sneak glass bottle root beer and now I'm a raging alcoholic that can't go an hour without a drink. I shouldn't have disobeyed my mom and imprinted drinking things from a glass bottle onto my mind.

If you can't admit that you have a drinking problem, then you have a drinking problem. So I figure I might as well just go around admitting that I have a drinking problem even though I probably don't have one. Is drinking only 4-6 drinks a week at most a drinking problem? Only if I don't admit that I have a problem.

I have a drinking problem too. I can drink beer like a viking on a snowy day, and I can drink Jesus' blood like a thirsty mother fucking vampire.

My grandpa used to let me dip my little finger in a glass of sangria once a year. Every year.

Now look at me!
 :drink:

Love you grandpa...Wherever you are.  I hope you went to sangria heaven. :grin:

Well, it may be just a joke . . .

However I put it in a similar bracket to "candy cigarettes". Just a candy for kids, bit of fun . . But now banned in many countries because the esrly formed "habit" may encourage kids to smoke real cigarettes later.  Such seemjngly harmless "hsbits", again at an early age before d7scretion and critical thinking are developed,, potentially transmute into more serious ones later.

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Candy_cigarette

Goes for many things, a sweet tooth is "learned" early and can lead to diabetes later.  If you know any child or learning psychologists send that gif to them and ask their opinion.

Not quite relevant because it deals with adolescent drinking . . But perhaps parental drinking hsbits, even "pseudo-boozing" with their kids, could be a factor.

We have similar problems over here.
