Trying to Become an Alcoholic

As a stay at home dad it’s at times very boring.  I have done so many things in life and I realize I have never been a drunk.  I have at times been close.  It’s an achievement that has seemed elusive.  There was always more pressing matters like responsibilities of a job or my previous business in New York City.

So how do I start?  Do I just get drunk as frequently as I can?  Do I start drinking for breakfast?  Lately I been into bloody mary’s and boy those are good. Nice and spicy with that nice vegetabe tomato taste.  I really love them.  I am also a fan of Gin and Tonic which I have been steadily drinking for over a decade. It’s what I consider my fallback drink.  Pretty hard to screw it up at just about any establishment.  My preference is Bombay Sapphire gin.

Doesn't that gin look so tasty?

I do drink plenty of beer as well.   I used to be a big fan of imported brews like Amstel Light.  However when I moved to Las Vegas somehow it tasted different.  I suspect all the travel the bottles do changes somehow the flavor.  Just a suspicion but I could totally be wrong.  When I arrived the selection was very domestic and there aren’t too many microbrewery’s like NYC.  So I have lowered the quality and was drinking Bud Light. Yes I realize how low-brow that might seem to you.  I tend to agree.  Oddly now that Budweiser has been sold to a European company does that make Budweiser an imported beer?  I do like the new Bud Light Lime.  It’s not bad at all.  But currently my favorite suds of choice is Coors Light.  I blame a local pub for having the coldest damn beer on tap I have ever had.  Makes the beer just so much better. It’s actually frozen a bit on the top when you get it.  It’s simply awesome.  So many bars just don’t have their kegs cold enough and well, I am not from England so warm beer tastes like piss to me.

So back to my original thought.  How do I become an alcoholic?  You have to be thinking “why would you want that?” and well it’s just a simple answer.  I am bored and I like to experience new things.

    LOL…I think you would have to drink every day for several hours each day. I for one don’t care to drink all the time (especially right now), but I do like my cold light draft beer, you know the pitchers that come with the ice pack built in? 🙂 Not much for gin though! Over did it when I was 15 and can’t even smell the stuff now! Good luck with your new endeavor, dude! LOL

    Great blog! I drink myself but I don’t think I am a drunk quite yet, at least not anymore. I used to drink all the time, every night but now that I work in the coal mines, I only drink on my days off.
