I know a lot of alcoholics and a lot of straight edgers, and a lot of people in between. Does that count for anything? I don't mean to make statements of opinion as fact like munch does, but this seems like a pretty safe bet to me. I mean, don't pick it up, and it never happens. This coming from a heavy drinker with a wife who is/was in AA.
Also, thank you! I have often considered myself ahead of the medical profession. I was in south England last week. I should have asked you to meet up so I could have answered your questions on everything, being the authority and all. You would have had insights people can only dream of!
Anyway, back to the matter at hand - the alcoholism discussion (which I wish I had not started) doesn't change my opinion on the obesity portion of what I stated. A choice almost 100% of the time.
