Since I'm a nurse and I work in a hospital I have worked with many patents going through alcohol withdrawal (serious alcoholics) and it's not pretty. Those have been some of my worst shifts ever. I don't want anything to do with a substance that creates such mayham in people.
I also don't like that alcohol is loaded in calories. I have a hard enough time with weight loss as it is (though I have had a great deal of recent success which I will be writing about in a blog post soon).
Finally I just don't like being around people who are drinking or are drunk. It like the last thing I want to do in my free time..
