Does a drink put me in a good frame of mine: Yes, a cup of coffee will do that for me.

Now and then I'll have a drink or two and that does it for me. I came from an alcohol abusive family so I watch myself very closely I've seen the harm it can do and it isn't pretty. When in doubt .... don't drink.

If that is what you like and you control it and not the other way around, then sure. There are always a few around though that think being outdoors = no restraint. Those are the types that make for lots of other unhappy campers.

I don't know about being a happy camper, but to many will make an unhappy inmate.

Me and the wife do not drink , don't mind what others do as long as the don't get out of hand

Memorial weekend in cedarhill state park , took the new TT out , invited my aunt ( 66 yrs old ) and her husband , she ask to see if my other family members would come , some have not seen her in some yrs. ok ,,, 22 people show up , in the park is no open container , I tell everyone ,

My 29 yr old nephew and his cousin 20 yr old , decide to bring in vodka in bottle water bottles

I am cooking preparing lunch. , bs ing , and my nephew. Falls out of a camping chair . I help him up his mom is there , boy can not stand up .

Any way the other one starts making trouble , his mom comes over and they get into it. , my 27 yr old son is there and( 6'-2". About 240# ) Pat-
he try's to stop it , the cousin swings at Pat and he takes him to the ground
I rush over to stop it , get Pat of him and my cousin try's to kick at me , well Dad jumps on him and grabs him by the throat .

We get him up , he is drunk , yelling and cousin people out . My older brother calls 911

They put my nephew in the TT under ac , he jumps up and missed the step and falls face down , now the wife is involved . She tells the trouble makers to leave , ambulance comes out and takes the nephew to er, police ask to take the 20 yr old home or To jail

This was suppose to be family , Bit my dysfunctional side of the family shows up

So we had a dinner and show for the other campers ???

I've found that I'm better without drinking. One was too many and five wasn't enough. Life is great but I have drinks for friends that stop by.

My DF and I can have a glass of wine together but if we drink a bottle together, all H brakes loose. So we never do.

It is amazing to me how many people will subject themselves to this mild altering drug not to mention how many ways it destroys their body's and bank accounts, lives in general.

my Dr. informed me that I should have a beer or glass of wine every day as it would be good for my health. too often I forget, but I will have a social beer or glass of wine around the campfire. I figure to each his own.

I heartily agree with your Dr. The body actually likes alcohol in small doses. It's when we feel that if a little is good for me, than a lot is better, that's what did me in years ago. I will not drink more than two. Not everyone is an alcoholic however. They don't feel the need to drastically alter their personalities to become a diffferent person, to help them cope,be funny, less inhibited, etc. Just my opinion coming from a family of heavy drinkers.
