Anyone Ever Use a Flask?
I needed a new computer bag so went to the mall and went to a specialty luggage retailer. Really nice store with high end luggage, computer bags, briefcases and that sort of thing. As I was mulling around I noticed that they also had a nice stash of Flasks. Really . . . in this day and age. Personally I never used a flask (or thought of using of one) in my active drinking days. I never gave it any thought. I did notice that they are expensive and quite fancy. Looking back, I guess the reason I never gave it any thought is because it would have been habitually empty and not of much use.
I guess my question is who uses them? Has anyone here? No judgment, just wondering.

Yes... I had two... One was leather bound.
I used to fill them and take them with me to bars in NYC. I would drink at the bar AND go to the bathroom for more out of the flask.
I did this regularly.... But you need tube socks!

I have looked at flasks - they do make nice ones. They make nice shoes for women with small feet (mine are man-sized), too, and I guess I won't have THAT fun either! Oh well.

I didn't have a flask, but I had a purse. One of the last times I went out, I had those little mini bottles of wine in my purse and I kept sneaking off to drink in the bathroom.. IN A BAR! Ugh... pathetic..

Nope. I was a beer drinker and it had to be cold beer. Not at all conducive to a flask.

I was always too ashamed of my drinking to have something pretty and flashy like a hip flask...smoking on the other hand, I had a silver antique cigarette case which took me years to find (one that fitted roll-ups) and various engraved zippos. I'd imagine for some people a flask would be part of the ritual, but for me it would have just identified me as an alcoholic! Something I was careful to avoid.

flasks are for fancy alcoholics. i just snuck my vodka around in water bottles. gotta keep hydrated! it's so nice not to worry about that now. i used to have a funnel in my kitchen supplies just for pouring vodka from the big bottle into the smaller ones.

Nah, I just put my vodka in a water bottle. It was much more practical.
Speaking of purses, my favorite purse was the one that could hold a six-pack of beer.

To be honest, I tried... but in all sincerity I can't quite figure out what this has to do either 'Sober' or 'Recovery'...
so I'm calling it a day on this one.
