I just finished reading a thread about what drinks go good with a pipe. I noticed within the replies that a few guys quit drinking alcohol. I just quit drinking after a ten year love affair with strong drink. I always drank a big nightcap before bed, it was still a lot for my small frame (I would get through a 70cl bottle per week - working out to just over the recommended units per day). I finally noticed that it was affecting my health, so I decided to take the bull by the horns and learn to live without it. If you made a decision to stop drinking alcohol, why did you quit?
