OP: I hope you beat back the urge successfully. Also I hope even more that you went after help in a better way than posting in a forum like this. Gay sites of any kind bring more than their share of un-funny, un-helpful BS; I'm surprised somebody hasn't posted some kind of "comedy" meme yet.
Alcoholism is only comical when you're not living with it yourself or haven't loved someone who's afflicted. My only addiction is to cigs. But I can't kick that crutch to - literally - save my life, so I feel ya. There are people in my world who have
fought "the bottle," and are winning. (They've been alcohol-free for many years. But the fight starts anew every time you wake up. It CAN be done though.) It's a non-issue when one of them, or anybody who prefers not to drink anything stronger than water/juice/milk/soda, shows up at my place either for a party or to just hang with me. I can take or leave beer, and rarely touch wine or harder stuff. Why so many people choose to drink as much as they can whenever they can has always been a mystery. Kinda pathetic really, once you get past the college years.
You're strong to admit you'd be better off leaving booze on the shelf. But confessing a fondness for champagne in your profile description raises eyebrows as to how seriously you either have a real problem or sincerely want to change. If you do, you can enjoy all the effects of "bubbly" minus the alcohol with any number of sparkling ciders and juices. You've got the corked bottle, you've got the fizz, you've got the sweetness, and the buzz? Most of that's in your mind anyway.
Best o' luck.
