Over the past year I've been drinking more and more, at one point I was getting drunk every night for at least a month...but when I went home (2 thousand miles away) I didn't have a single drink, didn't even think about it...there was no reason to, I didn't feel like having a drink or anything. So my understand is that my drinking here (in a big college town, with one of the highest microbrews per capita in the US) is a product of more location/environment? Or am I just in denial? I did the test on AA.com, and only answered yes 3 times...but I seriously drink ALOT these days. 4 times a week at least. I've never seen either of my parents have a drink, but I guess my uncle was a serious alcoholic for a LONG time (hes been clean for 20+ years now though). It just seems like here when I even don't want to drink I end up with some alcohol in my hand one way or another and it all goes hill.
