lmao Jan, I cannot picture you having a NORMAL
I used to drink to extreme excess while married to my ex-husband. As in a Case, yes 24 bottles, a day after work. I am ashamed to say I did that for most of my younger son's life... well, 10 years of it. I drank to try and be happy or forget the misery of my marriage to that asshat. One day, he made a bet with me... " Tina, you are nothing but a lush, you will always be a lush and never change, The Day You Quit Drinking Will Be The Day I Quit Gambling." That was October 9th, 1997. I stopped that very day.
The only exceptions were when I have had exactly three celebratory shots of schnapps one per year in the last three years for my baby sisters Birthday. I pretty much think that means I managed to quit successfully.
Oh, my ex still gambles like there is no tomorrow.
Aha! So, Bob's yer uncle... very clever.
