    I don't drink because I've got three family

    members six feet under because of beer. All three ment a lot to me and I miss the very much. The 8 of January marked seven years since I said goodbye to my grandpa and two years since I said goodbye to my uncle, his oldest son.

    I don't drink, anymore at all.

    Not even a bit. I don't like the taste of alcohol or what it does to people. Although people seems to keep asking me if I've been drinking the night before because basically when I get up I look kind of rough. Yet I'm not drinking and it's really annoying me because I don't...
