I just realized that when things aren't quit right in my life I stop dtinking because I can't realy enjoy it... So I guess I drink because i'm relaxed... Just a thought.
Anyone else?

I'd get so amped up from work (auto plants),that I'd need a few to relax. Now that I'm retired,I drink better beers to relax with my wife,watch vids on the net,& just be together. RDWHAHB!!! When the wife loves it to,then it's really togetherness!

I agree with that completely. When things in my life get a little heavy I find it much harder to sit and enjoy some beers. I have found that the times that I do have a lot on my mind that as I drink and get a little drunk, my thought will start wondering or I start worrying. And its odd because I not really a day-dreaming or worrying kind of person.

Exactly. I like enjoying the beer, and when I have alot on my mind... I just cant as much.
I understand the other side too though... And i'm not talking about needing to relax from a hard day at work... Cause beer is perfect for that... Just when your nervouse or worried from whatever... I just would rather save my good brew for when I can appreciate it!

I think that is another issue all together for some people, including myself. My girlfriend, who is going to be my wife sooner than later, is not a drinker at all. She has no taste for beer, liquor or wine. She will even turn her nose up to the most SWMBO friendly drinks. Sure she will sometimes drink a little to make me happy or taste my concoctions but for the most part my drinking time is my time and it is her time to do what she likes.

I also agree. Even when I start a project I may crack a beer but by the time I am done the beer is warm and flat

I think they only tasks that I do better while drinking is washing and waxing my cars or cleaning up the house.
