Sure...did it the first 16 years of my life. Ha.

But I'd probably never go back to beer if I did.

I dry out for one month every year, just to do it. I don't like it and the first few days are a bit tough, as are the last couple days waiting for the drinking date. Of course after a month of not drinking, two usually gets me pretty hammered. Could I do it? Yes. Would I want to for any reason? For a year? F*** no.

I could do it....

yes and no. I could do it, but I never would do it for the reason you mention.(just to prove it to myself?) But I know I could cause I've quit smoking cold turkey twice no problem If the doc said its over and the second doc said its over and the fifth doc said its over and the wife said its over, i guess i'd quit.

No. There are 2 things that I don't ever want to give up. Beer and sailing. Too bad homebrew isn't any good in a swell.

You are only going to have so many drinks in your life. Some people have all the drinks they should have by the time they're 25 or 30. I'd like to make sure that I don't hit that magic number until I'm a very old man.

I have drank once in the past 2 months, which is saying something for me!

I decided to lay off a bit to get myself back in shape and to just take a break. Now that I have not been drinking I don't feel like it.... scary!

so, yes I could go a year if I wanted to. Not sure if i really want to push it out that far, but gonna wait at least until i drop another 10lbs.

I don't understand the purpose of the line, "I don't need to drink to
have fun." Great, no one does. But why start a fire with flint and
sticks when they've invented the lighter?
