If I was single though? Probably have to just resort to meeting women online rather than bars, which is probably better anyway, very hard to find quality women in bars and clubs.


I met my current GF online. You're right, meeting women at bars/clubs usually isn't the way to go, unless you are just looking for a hookup. I had plenty of those in college, so got all that out of my system.

During NFL fall Sundays, I go to the local sports bar with NFL sunday ticket to watch my Bengals and get a pitcher of beer, but I can't remember the last time I went go out just for the sake of drinking. it usually involves sports.

Why can't people just have a drink occasionally? It's always an extreme with so many people. Either drinking constantly and excessively, or never drinking ever, at all.

Irresponsible would be telling people there is nothing wrong with getting drunk.

Just because it's genetic, doesn't make it a disease. I'd really like to see one of Bill W's friends say it is to a Cancer or AIDS patient.

There is nothing wrong with getting drunk, for some people!All of your posts have been so sillily generalised. Just because you lack any self-control, and can't stop yourself doesn't mean it's like that with everyone else.

If you went past a few drinks and actually are "drunk" then you either lost self control or are going for a drunken state which in a general sense is bad. And no where did I say there atent people who are capable of drinking responsibly or that EVERYONE on the planet should never have a single drink.

The disease debate is pointless, it just turns into a debate on what the definition of disease is which is meaningless, botyom line is that some people are born with an inibility to control their drinking and science has shown this much. You can call it disease or call it something else, it doesn't matter that is just a label.

There you go again making silly generalisations. There are plenty times where being tipsy/drunk can be beneficial, like if you're a football fan. How else are you supposed to sit through an entire game?

The whole label thing is relevant though (maybe not to this thread), because it trivialises peoples suffering. When you compare a difficulty of stopping drinking to oh-I-dunno having an in-operable TUMOUR on your brain, I'd say that's offensive.

That's reasonable. It's not that I don't like drinking, because I do. I just don't fit it into my routine.

Now the moderate drinker think has been debated a lot...supposedly a glass of red wine can be healthy...probably some truth to that.
oh.. well thats a shame, i liked citing that study lol
