I was a natural, which ultimately was the problem, and why I had to quit.
Good job on that. My dad used to be an alcoholic, quitting instantly after he had recovered from his second heart attack at 46 years old (the first one was ten years
earlier), and I'm afraid that a member of the extended family might be on track to become one in the very near future, if they aren't there already.
I used to drink rather heavily when I was younger, mostly due to peer pressure and being incredibly introverted otherwise, but I'm not sure if I ever actually liked it. That's one part of my past, among many, that I don't miss one bit.
EDIT: And just to chip in on the pot thing, I'm all for legalizing marijuana but am so indifferent on the issue that probably wouldn't bother to cast a vote even if our government decided to go down that route at some point. They seem to be happy enough enacting insignificant changes in alcohol policy whenever they need to distract the people from unpopular decisions taking place elsewhere though, so I can't see that happening any time soon.
