In AA circles they say that they lead to 'jails, hospitals or death', for those sick with it I think this is all too true.

Could never become alcoholic: It only takes less than 1/2 glass of wine before I get slightly tipsy, flushed face, etc. A lifelong annoying problem especially at biz functions and weddings.

But it is a blessing in disguise since too much drink means weight gain also.

Unfortunately it is the 'slightly tipsy' feeling that many alcoholics are trying to recreate over and over.

I have told people countless times in as many social functions, that I am allergic to alcohol and break out in horrid blisters if I have even one drop. Shuts them right up and they never bug me again to, "oh come on just have one little drinky."

I've felt like saying 'i'll break out in rehab' a few times, but, seriously, just carrying around a ginger ale seems to work for me.
For me, the best stategy is to stay away from drinking occassions.
