    I'm a total alcoholic, and here's why. I don't drink all work week long, but once it's saturday, I drink about half a case of beer, starting like right now. I don't drink all week, because I don't want to have a drinking problem, but that's manipulation, because i drink like a fish when i drink. I don't say shit about it to anyone, except for you creeps, but sometimes my girlfriend rats my saturday habbit to other people. People seem to give me a blank look about it, because I'm one of the most healthy people you'll find. I guess I'm a healthy alcoholic due to self moderation.

    When I used to work 3rd shift I would drink almost half the time before I went to work, but before I would go in I would always make sure to work out my entire body: chest, legs, abs, good stretch, because that would help me sober up big time.

    Once they legalize pot I'll stop drinking.
