So, I keep hearing from various sources that a small amount of daily alcohol (whatever the source may be) is actually good for cardiovascular health. Although we don't recommend people drink, if you're going to drink, one or two a day may help. The problem is that one or two turns into eight.

In any case, I'm drinking one or two a day now, and rediscovering my love of beer. And wine. And scotch. And gin. And cognac. And martinis. And... hmm... I'm thinking that maybe I'm in trouble.
