When I was little, the only booze regularly in the house was Dad's beer, which he basically had on the weekends. There'd be wine and one bottle of hard stuff -- usually rye -- around the holidays. When it was gone, it was gone. There wasn't money for it except at special occasions. Later on, things were less tight, so there'd be some booze in the house, and wine with Sunday dinner. I learned to take a drink responsibly at home.
I enjoy a drink, mostly on the weekend. Usually a scotch -- seldom more than one. I like a glass of wine with dinner. "Chateau Cardboard" is great for a single glass without opening a bottle, but we usually have a bottle with Friday dinner. I enjoy a beer on a hot day or with certain meals.
Our liquor cabinet is reasonably well stocked, because we like variety, and we like to be able to offer our guests what they prefer. Some of them prefer n/a, too, and we're happy to provide.
There are plenty of times when booze is around, that I don't partake, either because I'm not in the mood or because I need to drive soon or... If it were necessary to give it up, I would miss the taste -- that's what most often determines what's in my glass, not the alcohol content.
