Yes of course life can still be enjoyable but not as much in my opinion.

I'm strictly an evening drinker, the day is for activity, work or whatever tickles your fancy, but once darkness falls and dinner arrives it's time to relax with one's loved ones and a couple of pints of crappy lager beer or a few glasses of something stronger which add that certain edge or mellowness to the atmosphere.

A social lubricant or a stimulus to the creative juices,  if used and not abused, alcohol is truly a wonderful thing.

Can life be enjoyed without any habit you have picked up along the way?

 

Of course it can; that is the question you should be asking.

 

'Course it takes a bit of will power if your life revolves around bars and other entertainment areas, but can be done. I've been dry now for the last 18 years and it never stops me having a laugh or prevents me visiting anywhere I want.....................;)

Sure life can be fun without alcohol but like everything, it's fun to do in moderation. I find I enjoy a nice drink while BBQing.  Its relaxing and fun. 

 

I guess this could be really asked about anything so it depends on the person. Can life be fun without me 4wheelin in my truck?  No....unless of course I can go dirt bike riding. 555

Not if you are addicted to chocolate, games consoles or picking your nose, until you've beaten your addiction.

 

 

I'm marginally concerned that boogers have been put in the same category as Chateau Neuf Du Pape '63, I mean, there's addictions and then there's addictions. :post-4641-1156694572:

I think it could easily be asked if life can be fun with alcohol.... how many people have "hit bottom" - alienated family and friends, lost everything they had and some their lives, because alcohol became an addiction?

Of course there are extremes to anything when something takes over. Have known folk that are addicted to fizzy drinks and paid the price of looking like a sack of spuds...

That is true - and nobody wants to look like a sack of spuds, as you call them, but then, I think the overeaters of the world are rarely out at 3 am getting thrown out of a bar for misbehaving and end up trying to break a bottle over someone's head after someone else took exception to their slobbering drunk behavior. They don't end up in the news sitting at the police station bleeding from the forehead and not even remembering how they got there... 

 

Just my observations...
