I was actually going to ask you about this just now but decided against it if in fact you wouldn't want to talk about it. Which would be okay, just figured you'd mention it when you mention it.

That's awesome, and i am glad to hear it. as a liquor salesman the one thing that gets to me is seeing people come in every day pretty much spending all their free time with a bottle. Its also sad knowing for some people they need some alcohol to feel normal, they arent even getting that drunk. I don't have the power to do anything about it, I just serve them, but I do wish people the best. Some people come in looking normal, some people come in looking rough. I've had a customer die recently. As I said, I can't refuse to serve these people, nor would I, and I can't offer them assistance or help. But a part me growing as a liquor salesman and learning the craft is understanding alcoholism, which slowly I am learning.

So yeah anyways thats cool i'm glad to hear it.

I worked in a liquor store for a little while when I lived in Washington. Some of it is pretty sad. I used to have people at stores I'd buy alcohol at frequently say things to me about how they didn't need to see my ID because they know me or asking me like what I was mixing with tonight. It was kind of embarrassing.

Sometimes I would get the customers that would come in before work and buy three airplane bottles to drink and then come in for lunch and buy a small bottle. Then come after and buy a 750. And you can tell they're already buzzed but they don't have enough signs to turn away the sale.

The store I worked at had someone drive through the storefront before I started working there and had just reopened. It was a drunk old man in his 70s who was drinking in the parking lot.

Yeah I have the same type of people. People who come in multiple times for a pint or half pint of our cheapest shit, people who buy a 750 every day, etc. Its not too hard to notice patterns and realize they dont just drink a lot, they have a problem. Nevermind the fact when they arent at my store they could be at one of the 10 in a half hour radius, plus they could also be hitting up beer distributors(we dont sell beer at my stores just wine and spirits) and bars as well.

I make small talk to these people but never really about the drinks/drinking. Though some regulars I see em walk in and get their pint ready, but I try to be respectful.

This one time I was working in a city store and this girl came in, really thin, ratty, possibly homeless...pretty much looked like walking death. She appeared to be in her 20s which made me sad, I wish I had the power to help her, but even if I could I wouldn't know where to start. she bought a 1.75l of cheap ass vodka. She looked so bad I wouldn't be surprised if she's already dead. I don't think I am better than these people, but I genuinely wish they can kick the habit and get clean.

Despite all this, I love talking to people about fine(not necessarily expensive) whisky and other spirits. I like recommending people a good scotch or bourbon...even wine I am getting a feel for now. But in the mix of it all is the grim reality while we sell party favors/relaxors/dealing with inlaw juice...for some people we're literally selling them water. without it they would die.

I recognize my role in it, and realize I am just doing my job. But it is sad seeing this happen day in and day out sometimes.

I dont really know where i'm going with this but yeah

Martial art of eating? I'm not looking to become obese so no can do.

I know you're a very condescending, self righteous, obese guy who has his own head so far up his own arse that he doesn't see it. I don't think I need to know any more. Maybe your wife will divorce you soon and get with that bloke she's no doubt shagging.

You are the one relying on insults, not only to me but to my wife.

It's ok that you are angry but don't project your self hatred onto me.

Ive been cutting down on my tobacco products too. Not that I ever had a problem really, I just went through a tin, maybe two tins, a month. But even doing THAT made me feel bad and gross.

I never had it. I actually dont enjoy the stuff in a tin as much. if I do something like that itll be chew. levi garret. Mmmmm.

But yeah slowing down and quitting is good, but i'd switch up to a much better and healthier alternative. Go find a place that sells "General" brand swedish snush. you may or may not have a place. They have a wintergreen. much better and healthier and no spitting required. I'd switch to that if I were you though yeah quitting isn't a bad idea.

One time when I was in high school this I was driving to school in the morning and this kid who was also driving to school was stopped at the red light next to me. He opened his door and spit his dip spit on my car and it was so cold it froze onto my car.

I was so mad.

I prefer products you dont need to spit, such as swedish snus....people who use spit tobacco products and are gross about it are weird. Lots of people arent a fan of regular, 100% saliva spitting either, like even that would gross them out.

something about consuming a product in the mouth that you cant swallow a drop of always made me thing...why? Its really an american product thing, as los(loose) snus doesnt require spitting at all. Though a nice hog of chew once in a blue moon is pretty nice.

oh well
