I can officially say that I am not one.

Maybe when I grow up.

I dunno, man, I think TravelPunk is like a digital AA meeting - without the quitting part.

I did my share of drinking. I'm kind of done with it now, with the abuse I mean. I don't think you're alone on this site, but we're probably a minority. Cheers mate !

i just quit smoking 7 months ago after smoking for nearly 8 years and still embrace the decision. smartest f**king thing i've ever done. i definetly cut back on the drinking as well when i re-enrolled in college last summer...i used to be a "at least 12 beers and 2 packs of cigarettes a day" kind of gal. i was living in a 'party pit' type of house after dropping out of college 3 years ago. now i drink a few beers maybe once a week if i don't have too much school work. i can't believe how much i actually accomplish now a days.

so, you're not alone.

1) i have never smoked and do not plan to. WAY TO GO YOU GUYS WHO HAVE QUIT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It really is one of the foulest habits I have ever seen. I can't stand the smell.

2) Im over alcohol. To tell you the truth it's never really affected me enough to like it. Ive had a lot of alchy's in my fam (not in anyone I've known...most died fairly young) so i dunno, maybe i have a bit of a resistance to it, but once I'm past the point where it actually DOES something for me (generally that's after a lot...), I have absolutely no memories of it whatsoever. Where's the fun in that? (although I do drink once in a while more as a social thing ...)

I enjoy a good drink, but I've gone long spells without a drink...certainly would never want to make it a habit

I've gone loooooong periods of time without drinking any alcohol and I wasn't trying to avoid it-- it just worked out that way. I think one stretch was probably a couple years. I drink socially, but I can't remember the last time I drank on a weeknight. *shrug* I guess it helps that I don't need to consume very much to get a buzz. lol
