Comment of the Week

“For me, alcohol is entirely about context. There are a great many times where I would have regretted not drinking, like in social situations, with friends around a campfire or at a holiday gathering, or if I made a really terrific batch of mead or wine and was happy about it. Or celebrating something that went well. Or having a conversation with someone and it went later on into the night than we expected. So if I had not been drinking when it made sense to do so, I’d have probably regretted sticking to an absolute rule. I feel great about that the next day.

Pointless drinking out of routine or habit probably wouldn’t have the same effect.”

-Love the nuance, jim.
