I never saw my mother drink until we had moved out of home. My Dad, there are hardly ANY memories with him WITHOUT a beer in his hand. I still remember one night where they had a fight cos of Dad being drunk at a party and he broke his hand punching a wall instead of a fridge (he missed the fridge and hit the wall instead) His beer was all home brew. I still remember the smell of hops and bottles of beer exploding from the heat in the garage where they fermented.
They divorced years later and now Dad doesnt drink. Go figure. Couldnt set a good exampled for his kids when younger but gave up booze for his new partner and impress her
DH and I rarely drink.
