I took my first swig from the Jack Daniels bottle when I was 14. I went to the Barnstable High School football game and someone had it with them…cool right?
Partying through high school and college was the norm. It didn’t seem like we were destroying our insides and our outsides because we watched adults around us and advertising speaking to us about the great taste of it!
I always had this feeling that I could control it enough by saying to myself: “if I need a drink, I won’t have one.” Sure, that worked for a while–but not forever.
