    Allergic To Alcohol? Yup.

    What’s first thing you think when you see the title? Oh that’s horrible. Sucks to be you. NO RUM BALLS?? INSAINITY!   That’s right, I can’t have rum balls. Devastation.   A couple of years ago my dad decided to teach me good drinking habits for...

    And Sadly It's The One Thing I'm Allergic To =/

    I've never even been tipsy. Why not? I've seen the downside of alcohol (ab)use up close, and it's the main reason why I decided to stay away from it. It's an evil thing, IMHO.
