    How can you like alchohol to family violence. I love my wife but sometimes she steps out of line and a slap is the only way to sort her out. I dont need a drink to do that. After I have had a drink I find I love my family more and often cry looking at photo's of them while out drinking.

    She must be a very good woman to need only a slap or two to sort her out. In my experience, most women need far more than a slap.
    Usually, I find myself resorting to running them over with the family car, preferably with the kids inside (adds weight). My therapist said I lack social skills because I resort to violence to solve the problem of my wife stepping out of line. So I ran my therapist over with the family car with my wife inside (added weight). I cannot understand these modern thinkers who believe that real men like me and you should not take physical advantage of those who depend on us. If God had not intended us to slap around women (and children) he would not have made us stronger than them, right?

    I was actually shocked to find out in seminary that they don't encourage pastors to drink. I keep a bottle of Jack in my desk, and he's gotten me through several tough days at the office.

    Too right God did make us stronger but using a weapon to attack your wife and children is wrong. If your a real man you would use your hands to sort out your problems. Why would you want to risk damaging your car over something a black eye would sort out. Have you not seen the prices to get your car fixed?

    I usually make my wife get a job to pay the price of fixing the car after I've run her over. Doing so not only keeps the family budget on track for getting that boat I've always wanted, but also teaches her a valuable lesson in taking responsibility for having been run over.

    I do have a sense of humor, but joking about violence against women just isn't funny, and IMO, similar to joking about the Halocaust. Millions of women around the world suffer at the hands of male relatives and their husbands. Their suffering is real, terrible, and contemporary.

    I imagine more than half the women reading this thread half been abused by men in their lifetime.

    And this woman still finds time to give you head? I find that my wife struggles with all her house jobs so I have to find time with other women after work. This is why alcohol is good as it gives me confidence to talk to other women in bars and bring them home to do them. A big bottle of Gin by the bed also helps the wife forget what she has seen and sometimes after a whole bottle she will either please herslf with it or join in.

    My apologies, Angellous, if I've offended you. You are of course right: the violence against women is pandemic and not a joking matter.

    Men boozing is fine, women boozing is another matter.

    Love that stuff.

    Yes

    I drink because when I am out, I would like something different besides water. I am not a soda person.

    I used to drink vodka straight. I am not into too much mixed drinks. I love shots. I am not a heavy drinker. I only drink when I am out ones in a blue moon to a social gathering. If I go hang out with my friends, they drink beer. I don't care for beer. It would take me an hour to drink just one can. But ones I get going and finally think the beer is starting to taste good, then I will drink more. My brain tells my tounge I have no taste buds after 1 beer :biglaugh: .
    I have Jagermeister and Saki in our fridge. We also have wine, but I hate wine. It's in their for when we have visitors. Oh...and Budweisser.


    I am more of a hard liquor kind of person.

    Releases stress. Calms me down. It's like a brain freeze but without the pain.

    I read this and was like :areyoucra ;

    The National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAAA) has completed an extensive review of current scientific knowledge about the health effects of moderate alcohol consumption. It found that the lowest death rate from all causes occurs at the level of one to two drinks per day. That is, moderate drinkers have the greatest longevity.
    The NIAAA’s conclusion that moderate drinking is beneficial to heart health will be included in the next revision of the dietary guidelines to be issued by the government.
    Drinking alcohol may slightly increase the risk of breast cancer. However, Dr. Lorraine Gunzerath of NIAAA emphasizes that women should weigh the small increase in breast cancer risk (one percentage point) against the sharp decrease in heart disease risk (40%) resulting from moderate drinking. Also important is the fact that about 4% of American women die of breast cancer while about 50% die of heart disease.
    The scientific medical research did not find that moderate drinking leads to weight gain or to obesity, although alcohol contains calories.

    Depends on how the person handles alcohol. They could be violent when under the influence of alcohol. They could be dumb founded and not know who the heck they are or where they are. Ignorant and get behind the wheel because the alcohol has not only caused brain freeze (without the pain), but has caused the brain to malfunction like a virus in the computer.

    Steady, I just said it was another matter. I am not against it, as long as it 'Sends them the right way' so to speak' I am cool with it.

    When it make a woman vicious it's a problem, if a guy gets lively you just knock him out, when a woman gets nasty chilling her out gets a little awkward.

    i used to drink alot more than i do now.

    these days i'll occasionally have a lager or a shot of single malt scotch and of course a glass of good wine for Kiddush
    as far as effects, drinking in moderation really doesn't have a whole lot of harm but it's when we lose control of it that it will become destructive to all of those around you and yourself.

    but that's just my personal opinion.

    And some people get very affectionate when they're drunk, and some sit in the corner and giggle like schoolgirls. My mother plays a particularly deadly game of chess. Alcohol leads to as many different reactions as there are people.

    PFM, I think that three of the posters in this thread (guess which) are nothing more than the same person masquerading as several.

    Hot days are specifically designed to encourage beer consumption. It's a brewery driven conspiracy.:D

    That's what I was going to say, but you beat me to the punch. I think Mr. Suspioucus maybe playing a numerous amount of people here.

    I think Mr. Suspicious has at leat two ghost accounts: Jesus4Ever and Rogue_believer. However, I am not sure this can be proved. Could a mod check the ip addresses?
