I've never been there. TBH, I have a cabinet stuffed with alcoholic beverages, the harder stuff. I buy wine by the case (Cab Sauv) from Trader Joe (2.5buck Chuck), cases of brew from Costco, but I can go weeks without touching any of it, never give it a thought. I've felt good when drinking but never to the point where I craved more. Never been that way with anything. I literally have bottles of whiskey from Jack Daniels to single malt scotch and others, liqueurs (some home made), brandy, vodkas, tequila, what have you, and some from 20+ years ago, I kid you not. Never feel tempted, occasionally give it a thought and taste a 1/4 of a jigger or such.Haha. Thanks, I guess ;-). I'm still a drink away from returning to that though. Just can't even have one. That's the thing with us alcoholics; we can't stop drinking once we start (you may be able to do it a few times, but not consistently). It's always "more, more, more" even if you're already feeling good/high (this is true for any drug/addiction).
My sister doesn't touch it, says alcohol is, in a word, "toxic." It may be partly because her partner was an alcoholic and can't touch it, period. Her former partner was an alcoholic, I heard a horror story or two about some scenes she created.
I'll be offered wine at TG next week, and I'll drink some, but no way more than 2 glasses, if that.
