    To drink or not to drink.....( non alcoholic beer or wine )

    To drink or not to drink !?!
    This is a delema that most alcoholics face.......first you have to ask yourself : Why did I drink ? Is it for the taste of the beverage....or is it to get drunk ! Most drunks are not conicures of fine drink.......they just want to get drunk. So as I sit and ponder the thought of having a non-alcoholic drink in place of a "real" drink.....for abstainers.....it's better to not drink at all.....(Just my thoughts) Raven's Journal......IAD

    Well personally i only drank to get drunk,i never ever remember drinking for thirst or because i liked it for the taste,i drank wine with meals not to compliment the meal but to give me that extra buzz for later as i could not drink many pints with a full belly of food.So non alcoholic drinks will always be a no no for me.

    To drink or not to drink.....( non alcoholic beer or wine )

    Hi IAD, interesting question. Personally when I was a 7 day a week drinker I sometimes drank to get drunk and blackout but most of the time I drank out of habit I guess. I like(d?) the taste of a nice quality red wine and different beers and I have tried AF ones previously. Most of them are not great tbh but there are a couple of varieties of beer that are nice and I dont see anything wrong with having the odd one if I fancied a beer but dont want to drink, which is pretty much all of the time now. I reckon the purists will say ah but there can be .5% AL in them and they will give you a taste for the AL versions and they could very well be right but I never found this personally. Just my opinion of course.

    If I were abstinent and I had a non-alcoholic beer I am sure my next thought would be 'This is pointless, I'll have a very weak alcoholic beer'! The next thought would be 'oh, just one 'proper' beer' can't hurt'...I would be back to square one in days...

    I hated the taste of alcohol, and from the first drank for effect. I then came to enjoy the taste - purely association with inebriation? The only reason if abstinent to drink non-alcoholic beer would be the association with getting drunk, I am sure.

    Well, I always started out loving the taste of very good wine.....but, after the third glass (and there was always a third and more!) I could have cared less if it was 2 Buck Chuck or a rare vintage!

    And no, I do not drink the non-al varieties. No point to it, they taste awful and their are so many other non-al beverages that I do enjoy!

    I do enjoy an occasional na beer. Beer has some good things for you in it. Also, take out the alcohol, and alot of the calories go away too. This one is dicey for many as they fear it will trigger a relapse. So far so good for me! You'd have to pound ten in less than an hour to feel the effects of ONE beer. Not likely!!
