EW! Gross!

J/K

Even when I did drink I never liked Gin…made from Juniper berries and tasted like pine needles…I love the smell of pine but don’t like drinking it, LOL

I do have a funny Gin story though…when my Mom died I raided her liquor cabinet and drank or took home everything but the Gin. I used the 1/4 of a half gallon bottle to clean the cigarette smoke stain off her walls, it worked quite well and gave the place the smell of juniper berries instead of stale smoke…

I wish man…

Only my family went and paid a small fortune for me to go to rehab and get all sobah…now they expect me not to drink. Sucks because I have a severe anxiety disorder that’s now untreated as no one will prescribe me benzos anymore since they diagnosed me with alcohol dependence.

Enjoy one for me though!

Those who drink sometimes get drunk. I quit. Don’t mix with meds.

Dude gin and tonic is gross. Arent you in Ireland? Go drink an Irish car bomb, which is half a Guinness stout with a half shot of of baileys and a half shot of jameson which you pour in it and chug before the baileys, which is creamy, coagulates, which will make you sick. Irish car bomb is my drink. I just have one or two, I dont do drunk/tipsy anymore.

Ha! Another one who thinks it’s gross…

Plus the history of the ‘drink’ is actually British and it was originally a medicine for malaria…

‘The cocktail was introduced by the army of the British East India Company in India. In India and other tropical regions, malaria was a persistent problem. In the 1700s it was discovered that quinine could be used to prevent and treat the disease, although the bitter taste was unpleasant. British officers in India in the early 19th century took to adding a mixture of water, sugar, lime and gin to the quinine in order to make the drink more palatable. Soldiers in India were already given a gin ration, and the sweet concoction made sense. Since it is no longer used as an antimalarial, tonic water today contains much less quinine, is usually sweetened, and is consequently much less bitter’

Hah Irish car bombs! An acquaintance of mine took me out drinking for my 30th birthday and he had one of those at every bar on the main drag…that’s like fifteen Irish car bombs! This guy was wasted by the end of that night, got literally thrown out of the second or third to last bar we hit and he’s yelling “Am I a little too tan for this place!!!”

Man, I no longer drink, not even socially but during my drinking days in my 20’s my favorite drink was Whiskey - straight up :beer:


#10

I too used to like whiskey more then a little too much.

Sober for 7 years now. Don’t miss it. Happier sober.


#11

Be almost a year… I wasnt drinking daily before that… but enough that it affected my life when I did.

Although I am not tempted by any form of alcohol, you guys posting about my 2 least favorite drinks certainly will assure I do not drink, LOL

Gin and whiskey are both nasty, although I had a bit o whiskey when I was younger. The only “good” whiskey was Crown Royal but that stuffs too expensive… I could tolerate Jack or Wild Turkey but anything else was pretty much paint thinner…ew!
And coming up it is just awful! Gross.
