I assure you im not, since I only drink like once a month. But definitly when I was bartending and during certian parts of the marines I did drink ALOT especially when I was bartending as I had drinks bought for me or on the house during my whole 8-10 hour shift and often would stay after hours and drink some more.
Fun days I guess for some people but I kinda got burned out on it fast, and the drama is not somthing I like to deal with. I like my nice quiet night job I have now at a hotel. The kids are work enough for me when I get home.
I have seen functional drunks before, they are the (in my experience) the people that drink constantly like breakfast lunch and dinner yet still maintain normal lives and work like that and most people would not know unless you smelled the stuff on them. Drink too much and your liver turns into swiss cheese, I dont want that to happen eather.
