    I only drink when going out with friends. Usually I'll have a few drinks to get buzzed and quit early.

    Drinking alone seems odd.

    If I am really stressed, then a glass of wine helps me sleep and sometimes even eat, If I can't. I just can't relax and turn my head off sometimes. It's not something I do on a regular basis though....definitely not looking to make it a habit.
    Often a star was waiting for you to notice it. A wave rolled toward you out of the distant past, or as you walked under an open window, a violin yielded itself to your hearing. All this was mission. But could you accomplish it? (Rilke)

    Hmm, I see an unusually large amount of people pretending that "never" was a truthful vote.

    I do not use alcohol to get thoughts out of my head. I like thoughts.
    I use alcohol to appear sober.

    I worked in an office in central Helsinki, in the early 60s.
    The lunch hour was 90 minutes long.
    The restaurants in the neighbourhood were very posh.
    I could not afford the luxury, with my meagre salary.

    One day the Red Cock opened.
    I was so glad. The prices were reasonable.

    I walked in and ordered lunch.
    The waitress said: You are drunk.
    I was dead sober.
    To say the truth, I did not drink that much.
    Absolutely not in the morning, or in the midday.

    It could happen I did want two have a drink or two, in the evening.
    Especially during the week ends.

    Whenever I entered a restaurant or a pub, I was refused service.
    I was told I was drunk.

    On one occasion, after having refused entry to a restaurant, I dropped to see a friend who lived in the vicinity.
    I said: Harry, I need some Scotch.
    The chap had a bottle of Ballantines in the closet.
    I had a drink or two. We had a little talk.

    A couple of hours later I walked back to the restaurant.

    The doorman said:
    You have sobered up so quickly!
    A bit of sleep, and coffee later! It does the trick, eh?
    Please step in, Sir. You are most welcome!
