Personally I dont do drugs and I very seldom drink.
I love a good whiskey every now and again and partial to Bells as that is what my grandfathers and my dad drank and what I learned to drink whiskey with.
Occasionally I have been known to have a beer (not a bear for my Twitter followers) when eating pizza.
My parents, particularly my dad, raised me to do everything in moderation. My dad would rather I was at home having a drink with him than off at a club getting drunk.
As an aside in regards to clubs… He always told me that he would fetch me from wherever I was as long as it was no later than 12am. After that getting home was my problem. 95% of the time I went home with him rather than find my own way home.
My parents views on moderation when it came to drugs were not so similar. My mom was adamant that I NEVER EVER do drugs. My dads view was once again, rather bring the weed* home and try it in a safe environment than out where there was no control. Needless to say I would never admit to him, no matter how relaxed his views were, that I had ever smoked weed.
I would like to think that I will be the same way with my kids, ‘moderation’, I know Paul will be far stricter than me. Who knows.
*for the sake of this post, which is being read by various family members, lets just say weed was the only thing I ever experimented with, ok?
