This is a kinda bone post and im probably *text deleted* get flack for this *text deleted* but who gives a fcuk.

anyway *text deleted* seen that alot of soldiers etc drink like fish and im sure that alot of u do how ever i don't and won't drink due to a alcoholic trait in my family from my dad's side (nearly every1 from his family was alcoholic)

so anyway i dont drink *text deleted* *text deleted* seen how depressed,angry,unreasonable ppl get due to it
so did my dad he has stopped drinking completely which takes a ton of self control and guts.

*text deleted* anyway do u okes think ill get *text deleted**text deleted* 4 this in the Marines?
im not that worried im just kinda curious *text deleted*

anyway shot guys

I have never touched a drop of alcohol in my life mate. Bit of friendly banter from the training team but it wasn't a problem. But if they didn't give you banter over not drinking, you'd get it over something else. Everyone gets some kind of *text deleted* take, but that's life.

Plus there were a couple of others that didn't drink. it isn't that unusual.

I know how you feel mate, alcoholism is a fairly dominant trait in my family. I don't drink too often, as I don't like it much, but only really drink because so much socialising is done with it, and like Chris Terrill said "It is part of so many bonding rituals". I usually will keep it to weekends though, and I don't want it to *text deleted**text deleted* up with training.

anyone can control it-my entire family are alcoholics cept my mum, it's no different to smoking, you might want to get drunk with your mates all the time, just don't.
so long as you don't rely on it to help you not have to face certain problems ti should never really be a problem itself

Well some people can. But the times I drink are few and far between. Last time I drank was about a month ago on my friends birthday, the other a month before on my birthday, the time before that was like a whole year.

It's not like I'm heavily reliant upon it. People who do it regularly will become addicted to it and reliant upon it, such as drinking in many days of the week, this is the point where it gets hard, but I will never get to this stage. There are not a lot of drinks I like, its rather expensive at the moment as well.

Most of the people who get like this are unable to overcome their own emotions and use it as an outlet. But I've never found solice in it and don't really have any vices, apart from training.

No worries any way, if that's how you want to keep it then do it, I have respect for people that are T Total.
