To dispute with a drunkard is to debate with an empty house.
-- Publilius Syrus
When you go out with a drunk, you'll notice how a drunk fills your glass so he can empty his own. As long as you're drinking, drinking is okay. Two's company. Drinking is fun. If there's a bottle, even if your glass isn't empty, he'll pour a little in your glass before he fills his own.
-- Chuck Palanhiuk, "Invisible Monsters"
I always drank, from when it was legal for me to drink. And there was never a time for me when the goal wasn't to get as hammered as I could possibly afford to. I never understood social drinking, that's always seemed to me like kissing your sister.
-- Stephen King
Wine hath drowned more men than the sea.
-- Thomas Fuller
We are not cured of alcoholism. What we have is a daily reprieve contingent upon the maintenance of our spiritual condition. Every day is a day when we must carry the vision of God's will into all our daily activities.
