I find no one notices that I'm not drinking alcohol. Once my company had a big shindig in Las Vegas. They had an evening reception and the whole point of it was to drink. I had the bartender fill a big rockglass with club soda and put a couple olives in it. Everyone thoght I was drinking. But usually I just stick to some sort of soda.

I find that as we've aged, there is less consumption of alcoholic beverages among friends. We've gotten the desire out of our minds and realize we don't need them to have a good time. There's also a medication factor among some of us. At least there's no pressure being applied as it was in our younger days. Maybe there's a realization of the lower BAL laws and fear of a DUI citation. This is purely anecdotal and not statistical.

Nevertheless, there's still plenty of alcohol consumption -- and many people with addictions out there.

you're right about the effect but wrong on the cuase.


there is less alcohol consumption because the drinkers are all dead.


i'd outlived half my drinking buddies by 30 and now, at age 52, there are only 2 or 3 still alive.
