I work in a bar setting and I have a VERY social lifestyle. Usually it just starts socially and the first drink feels almost like the first drink you ever had, it really hits you hard and you can feel the effectes within the first few sips... And from that point your body kind of just ajusts and in a day or so its back to its regular tolerance. It is rather strange. I am going to try to take my time and stay away, I know there are some dependancy issues because I just don't know how to have a glass or two and leave it at that. And again anything would upset me and I would be looking for the booze escape. I am on day 3 and day 6 without drinking and I must admit I FEEL GREAT.
